The Leadbetter Golf Academy - Elite Instructor Training Seminar

Sunday, January 21, 2018 at the Leadbetter World Headquarters in Orlando, FL

2017 PGA Teacher of the Year David Leadbetter will personally host a 1-day intensive educational seminar for golf instructors and professionals who have a passion to learn and aspire to teach the game at the highest level. This is a unique opportunity to learn from one of the greatest minds in golf instruction as David shares the experiences and knowledge he has acquired over his 40 years teaching at the top of the game.

David and his team of speakers will cover all aspects of golf instruction from the profile and make up a great instructor as well as swing mechanics, physical & mental conditioning, the business of golf instruction, and junior development. This is a truly unique learning opportunity for any ambitious golf instructor.

In addition, David and his Director of Instruction Sean Hogan will give a brief overview of LGA’s Instructor Certification Course, a comprehensive 9-month training course delivered online and through a series of seminars and assessments. With 32 LGA Academies around the world, LGA Certified Instructors have the opportunity to teach at one of David’s global locations or set up their own LGA facility. On-going education is provided to all LGA Certified Instructors, as well as development opportunities to become Senior and Master Certified.

During his career, David has coached 24 players to Major Championships, 7 players to World No.1 but perhaps his greatest contribution to those within the golf industry is the number of instructors he has trained and certified who have gone on to have successful careers.
