From Michigan City, Indiana, Drake Edmond has over 12 years of experience coaching and teaching golf. Outside of coaching, he’s been playing golf for over 18 years, has a degree in Golf Management, and played in the Moonlight Mini Tour. When Drake is coaching, he emphasizes utilizing golf statistics to track and measure for game improvements, developing players’ short games, and providing his athletes’ full swing analysis. Along with this, he uses technology such as TrackMan, FlightScope, SAM, and Swing Catalyst to gather the necessary data to develop athletes’ skill sets. When he’s not at IJGA Bishops Gate, Drake can be found playing at other courses across Florida. On the occasion he isn’t at a golf course, Drake enjoys fishing, kayaking, and traveling.
