Dear Friends,

It's incredible how quickly the season flies bye. I've just finished up the last of my calendar events at the New York Golf Park, the US Kids Hudson Valley Tour and the Playground Golf Foundation Tournament. I will still be offering private sessions at the NYGP until Mid October.  Now that schools are back in session, I'm thrilled to announce that we have some coaching opportunities for any motivated golf enthusiasts and/or PGA Members.  


Job Description:

Teaching golf to children in Columbia, Greene, and Northern Dutchess county schools during gym classes between normal school hours. Coaches will need to be on time to set up prior to the first-period class, help, and support or become the lead coach and help clean up after the last period. $25-50 Per Hour

Children will range from elementary-middle school. The Playground Golf Foundation’s mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.

We don’t just teach golf, we teach the core values of respect, honesty, responsibility, sportsmanship, integrity, perseverance, judgment, courtesy, and confidence through golf.

Candidates must have reliable transportation, a positive attitude, and experience coaching or work with children would certainly help.

A typical 4-day program runs Monday-Thursday from 7 am-3 pm with a break for lunch and some class periods off. Sessions will run 1-2 weeks for an entire PE UNIT. We will run the course for 2 weeks straight and take a week off to recharge our coaches and prepare for a new schools setting.

Any interested golf enthusiasts should contact Lucas Cohen, PGA at (954) 562-6881

Golf Live is so convenient from both an instructor and a student standpoint, which is the name of the game these days, convenience. From delivering lessons from the comfort of my home in the evening time after I put my children to sleep. To teach on a rainy day when I was unable to teach outdoors, the technology simply allows me to have more availability. Teaching at off-peak hours adds another lesson or two to my schedule. When people say there aren’t enough hours in the day, we’ll now you have 1 or 2 more to teach or take a lesson. 

It was also super convenient for my students as they were in their home, backyard, garage, or on their own driving range, and most importantly on their time. In today’s fast pace world scheduling can be a challenge. With the Golf Live app, you will eliminate the challenge of scheduling. As a student, if you need help, you simply dial pro like you would call a doctor during a telehealth visit. The technology is simple and the functions of the app are easy to use. Giving a student real-time feedback in any golf-related setting makes this the most versatile golf instruction tool ever created! Students from all levels will benefit from having the entire session recorded for review. As well as swing clips that can be compressed into slow motion files for quick reference and key points for continuing improvements. The messaging function within the app allows for file sharing and clear communication too. 

We live in such a fast pace world with people wanting quick fixes and convenience. This app offers students instant feedback from any place they would normally be able to practice or play. As long as they have a good cell signal, it’s literally game on! It also offers instructors the ability to teach in their favorite chair, at their desk, in a hitting bay, on the course, or wherever and whenever it’s convenient.  

It’s the wave of the future and I look forward to the awesome ride ahead. Growing the game exponentially and helping players and coaches to improve is why we teach and play this wonderful game. Golf better, anytime, anywhere, instantly. Available for download in the Apple App Store + Google Play Store.
