Tour Players know what it takes each week to reach their potential. They know that they have to invest in a well-rounded approach to their game so they can play on the weekend. You will learn what they know and how you too can train like them for the weekend. Our training is designed to help you overcome some of the biggest technical, fitness, and mental mistakes that are adding strokes to your rounds.
The Play Great Clinic is comprised of 3 training stations (Technical, Mental, Fitness/Nutrition) where groups of 4 golfers will rotate between stations on the driving range and on course! You will discover how to build a solid foundation to maximize your performance. The small group size enables each professional to address each golfer’s individual needs.
