The IJGA’s coaching staff has a mission focused on Player Development.
Our team of trained and experienced coaches are committed to providing an elite golf training program.
Jonathan Yarwood, Director of Golf Instruction, has the coaching staff focused on developing strong skills and assists each instructor in aiding each student’s ability to take practice skills to a competitive tournament environment. Bringing with them years of industry experience and world-class backgrounds, our coaches will develop better players, not just a better golf swing.
IJGA coaches look at and assess all areas that affect performance including technical, physical, mental, emotional, social and tactical abilities. Our coaches then use these assessments to formulate a development plan for each and every student as an individual. This plan is split into manageable goals each day. At the end of each day at the academy we highlight small incremental improvement. These small improvements are easy to manage and over time amount to long-term changes. This philosophy is successful because we are dealing with junior golfers and not adults.
The more you can combine the technical, mental, emotional and tactical in a training environment, the better.
