Golf Digest names Gary Gilchrist top-50 instructor

In the November issue of Golf Digest, Gary Gilchrist was recently named one of the top 50 golf instructors in the nation. Gilchrist, whose namesake academy sponsors the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy Junior All-Star Series, has been coaching and instructing some of the world’s top golfers for years, both professionals and amateurs.

He now teaches out of the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., where he focuses on the mental, physical and technical aspects of the game.

The goal at the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy is to develop students in every area: strategically, mentally, technically, physically and as a person, so they can reach their full potential in golf and in life. The consistent cycle of learning, preparing and performing is the foundation of the program. Students learn to approach every aspect of their development looking at the goal, hurdle and solution — building confidence through the process and focusing energy on the plan for improvement.

Gilchrist has taken a hands-on approach with the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy Junior All-Star Series, most recently hosting a clinic and Q&A session at the Montverde Academy Junior All-Star Invitational.
