Will Robins has an amazing story. Like quite a few past guests Will start his golf career as a player more than a coach / teacher. However due to some crazy events in life he couldn’t continue to play. Check out his story on CBS.

Steve Whidden had the opportunity to build a full time academy from scratch starting in 2008.

 

He started at a course with 300 members who had never taken instruction at the course.  His challenge was to get those members taking lessons at the course, building an academy from scratch. <em>Spoiler alert - which he was able to do.</em>
