A New Generation of Certified Professional Golf Coaches®
Ideally, a competent golf coach should come up the ranks from that of a golf teaching professional. There is no better training ground for coaching golf than having shared your passion of teaching the game to those of all ages, levels of abilities, and varying personalities. Furthermore, most successful teaching professionals have acquired the characteristics of patience, humility, and compassion, which are prerequisites for helping those who are competing at the game.
Aside from having an acute understanding of the mechanics of the golf swing and the ability to share these mechanics in a simplified manner, the golf coach must also have an understanding of subject matters such as sports psychology, sports science (fitness and biomechanics), and the mental aspect of coaching the game. Furthermore, a competent golf coach should be able to act as a mentor, be able to motivate clients, and offer advice if need be on personal development.
