This discussion with Michael Michaelides is all about coaching. Michael has been the Long Island University coach for 11 years and has also taught golf during that time. That being said he has a FANTASTIC perspective on this issue of teaching vs coaching. (as well as being heavily involved in golf science research)

Gary covers his philosophy and where it came from while growing up in South Africa. How this lead him on a course to become the academy owner and coach he is today.

I don’t want young people to make the same mistakes that I made.

Gary shares about the experience of going from a golf coach to running a business in 2007. He shares the stories that should really inspire you as an instructor to take your business to the next level. As we talk about growth and the biggest factors that have propelled Gary on the path he’s on

Gary has led the charge in junior golf player development, developing three of the world’s most successful junior golf programs. Starting at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL, where he developed the first junior golf program of scale and was the Director of Golf from 1995 to 2004. Gilchrist then founded his namesake academy, Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy in 2007 near Orlando in Howey in the Hills, after spending three years as the Director of Golf at the International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head, SC.

 



gary gilchrist and cordie walkerWhen I was down in Orlando at the PGA show I was able to go out to Howey in the Hills and meet Gary and see a typical day with the 45 full time students they have right now. (theGolfMDs guys were out shooting some videos which I hear are going to be coming out soon)

We talk about how Gary has been able to get such amazing results with students and what it’s done for his ability to grow his academy. If you want to hear what he runs the students through every week… We go through it! And Gary shares what he thinks are the keys that some people are missing.

See where the junior wants to be and then reverse engineer it back

Gary’s approach to junior golf development is FASCINATING. For anyone trying to work with juniors on a high level this is a must listen.

One of the most interesting (and practical) parts of this interview is when Corey and Matt walk through their coaching programs. They not only work really well from a student development standpoint but are also profitable.

“You cannot be a great coach without being a great administrator”

Matt shares the specific results he’s been getting with a group of guys at his club, exactly what the program looks like, and the price point.

Corey and Matt have really figured out how to make gamification really work in coaching environment with both juniors and adults. I was blown away by the results they’re getting and how well it’s been received at their clubs.

If you’re at a private club. Listen up!
We’re talking guaranteed revenue and player development.

Here’s the post on curious coaches that outlines this. Check it out here.

“You have to put in the admin time”

Both Corey and Matt attribute a lot of their programing and success to some past guests Henry Bruton and Dr Rick Jensen. Make sure to check out there episodes so you can get a better idea of what they’re talking about.
