Club Fitting and Instruction Biography
 

Background:

Anthony graduated from Florida Gulf Coast Golf Management Program with a Double Major in Professional Golf Management and Resort and Hospitality Management. He began his career working in a Club Repair Shop learning about Golf Club Alteration and Club Fitting. Before coming to Fox Hopyard, Anthony has worked at Grey Oaks Country Club, and Medina Golf & Country Club. During his five-year tenure at Grey Oaks Country Club he worked as an Assistant Golf Professional in the Performance Center which is dedicated to Golf Instruction and Club Fitting. Anthony became a Certified Golf Club Fitter by Callaway, Ping, Titleist and Mizuno. His other certifications include: Certified Trackman Professional, Shaft Fitter from KBS, and True Temper, and a Titleist Golf Ball Fitter.

      Anthony has an extensive knowledge of golf equipment and technology which allows for a customized teaching style that is tailored to his player’s goals. He utilizes Trackman in his lessons to provide immediate feedback about the players equipment, swing, and monitors their progress. Anthony believes Club Fitting and Golf Instruction go hand in hand because each player has their own strengths and weaknesses. He looks at all aspects of the golfer including set up, length, loft, lie angle, and overall ball flight. It is important to analyze all components to attain optimal results. By taking this data into account, Anthony works with the player to help them achieve their goals to make the game of golf fun and enjoyable.
