Junior Instruction

I believe in Changing Kids Lives.  Over 80% of Indianapolis Golf Academy students carry an “A” average in school. My philosophy with juniors is to be a mentor coach, teaching them fundamentals and growing knowledge of Their game and the overall game of golf.  However my primary goal of teaching juniors is to teach life skills and strong character traits.  Their success in golf will be a direct reflection of these values.
