National Instruction Day on Golf Channel

On Wednesday May 4th, I joined several of my instructor colleagues from around the country to help celebrate National Instruction Day. Without the platform provided by Golf Channel, in partnership with the PGA of America, the sharing of all these golf tips, spread over 16 hours of programming, could not have happened. This is worthy of a shout out to Golf Channel and the PGA of America, and a great big thank you for allowing me to participate. I really enjoyed working with Golf Channel’s Charlie Rymer at Cog Hill.

During this all-day event, we conducted clinics at six golf courses around the U.S. Each of the six golf course locations participating in National Instruction Day featured a lead PGA Professional, along with two guest instructors working in collaboration on a live, one-hour clinic from their respective location. I was one of the PGA Professionals, and was joined by: Michael Breed, Martin Hall, Hank Haney, Craig Harmon, David Leadbetter, Cameron McCormick, and Jim McLean. Blair O’Neal and PGA Professional Jeff Ritter handled the hosting duties throughout the day from Golf Channel’s headquarters in Orlando. It was amazing to see how much coordination went into this all-day programming on Golf Channel, with instructors located in multiple locations and uplinked by satellites back to Orlando, all while being beautifully orchestrated by Golf Channel studio hosts and producers.

Our collective goal was to help golfers improve their games by showing some of the tips and drills we each use in our daily instruction. What I hope you saw was the passion and determination that I’ve brought to my students for well over a decade. I’ve tried to help them enjoy the game of golf by shooting lower scores and by having more fun on the golf course. It truly was an amazing day, and I hope you had the chance to learn from these great instructors.
