Students will be immersed in week-long programs based on David’s famed “Holistic Approach” to golf instruction. Utilizing 30 plus years’ experience coaching juniors around the world, Leadbetter-Certified coaches will instill players with valuable insight and improvement in the technical, mental, physical, and on-course skills of the game, allowing each junior golfer to take his/her game to the next level. David’s and his team have helped countless Tour Professionals and aspiring junior golfers reach the pinnacle of the sport, including 23 Major winners and 7 World No. 1 players.
