EDUA 5512 Teaching Advanced Golf

Many students participate in golf so that they can learn the skills to be able to enjoy the game for the rest of their lives. However, certain athletes desire to elevate their game to the next level, hoping to play competitively during college and possibly becoming a professional golfer. In order to train these athletes to compete at the professional level, it is crucial that they master both the technical and mental aspects of the game.

This course provides the coach with numerous strategies to support their golfers in reaching the next level of their game. The coach will be able to prepare his or her golfers to meet any challenges they face on the golf course by instilling the mental and physical strategies necessary to be successful. By the end of this course, the coach will be able to identify the faults in every aspect of their athletes’ golf routines, and train his or her students to identify and effectively implement the proper fix for every error.
