Year Round Performance Training

Building Life Champions  Over the years, I have had the opportunity train with and learn from the greatest coaches, teachers, and leaders in sport performance training as well as coaching for the sport of golf. From these experiences, I have built my own training academy to incorporate Golf Performance Training that includes a combination of teaching, coaching, competition, and training within a team atmosphere. [scrollGallery id=1] Golf Performance Training provides a structured training environment where athletes receive individualized instruction alongside other evolving golf students. Students compete, train and leverage each other’s performance, well beyond just their own. The academy is designed to help the students identify their strengths and build on them while understanding and sharpening areas that need development. We accomplish this by reinforcing that a student’s strengths are his or her own unique talents, first and foremost.  We train on three different levels.  First — students train to learn.  Second — students train to compete.  Third — students train to win.  This is the champions  formula that maximizes Teaching, Coaching, and Training at the highest performance level.     While each training day is different, each session encompasses a different aspect of full swing, short game, distance wedges, putting training, on-course practice, and the most important element–mental training. During a training day, students have particular stations at which they begin, and goals which they must reach before they can move on to the next station. Within each performance segment, students rotate through different training drills, based on their individual strengths and areas for development. Students also spend time on the golf course as a compliment to the training and coaching regimen. Since the inception of our training club in February 2004, our team members have won 1400 individual titles in local, regional, and national tournaments.  100% of our Elite graduating seniors have been offered golf scholarships
