Every year starts with the promise of change and improvement and that’s certainly true for us as we look forward to the beginning of 2017. Even though we were pleased with the progress our students made in 2016, we are looking forward to implementing several new initiatives that will help them progress at an even faster rate in the next 12 months.
To begin with, we have ordered the new TrackMan 4 launch monitor and the all new K-Trainer from K-Vest. With dual radars in the TrackMan 4, we’ll be able to accurately track and measure shots from 6 feet to 400 yards. The new K-Trainer hardware and software will allow our students to receive more accurate feedback when learning new movement patterns or working on drills.
There’s no doubt that golf instruction has changed significantly over the last few years. You might even say that new technology, motor learning research, and big data have caused a revolution of sorts among the best coaches in the industry. To keep you posted on the changes and how they affect your child, we will be hosting a monthly Junior Golf Parent's Forum where will be discussing important topics and answering your questions about junior golf. To sign up for our first forum on January 9th, please click on the following link: Junior Golf Parent's Form.
Finally, you can expect to see improvements in our coaching curriculum that will include more clearly defined development phases and additional structure for students.
On a more personal note, Coach Kaylin and I were recognized this year by our peers. Kaylin was selected as one of Golf Digest's 100 Best Young Teachers in America and I was selected as one of Future Champion Golf's Top 50 Elite Junior Coaches in America. We're both honored to have been selected and feel fortunate to have the opportunity to do what we love on a daily basis.
Thanks for your ongoing support and I look forward to seeing you soon.
