The golf coaching world is extremely (sometimes, excessively) passionate about coaching golf swing mechanics. As a result, a vast understanding of what should happen during a golf swing, along with the science behind it, has been developed. Unfortunately, how to train golf swing mechanics is often lacking from the information that is available to golf coaches.
With an abundance of golf teaching certification programs available, there is an increased importance placed upon selecting the proper ones. Unfortunately, the perceived value of a certificate program is in decline, but should this put us off attending golf teaching certification programs on our quest to be better coaches? Absolutely not; it should, however, make us think harder about the golf teaching certification programs we do attend.
Tony Romo made his PGA Tour debut over the weekend at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship. Shooting +10, 82 and +5, 77, Romo failed to make the cut, finishing last in the 132-man field with +15, 159.
Romo gained entry to the event with a sponsor’s exemption, much to the chagrin of many pundits that felt the space could have been better used on a more accomplished amateur.
