(SOUTH YARMOUTH, MA) – Blue Rock Golf Course congratulates PGA Professional Patrick Fannon on his recent advanced professional certification from the PGA of America. With this elite certification, Fannon has become one of only 535 Certified PGA Professionals in the field of Teaching & Coaching out of 27,000 PGA members nationwide.
Described by The PGA of America as “continuing education designed to enrich a PGA member’s arsenal of skills, enabling them to lead the growth of the golf industry”, the program also offers certification in the areas of Golf Operations, General Management and Player Development. The Teaching & Coaching Certification consists of a series of 20 courses including topics such as science of the golf swing, psychology and learning styles of golf students. Fannon was especially fascinated with the research and findings on the transfer of learning from short-term to long-term memory and utilizing the information to create the most efficient manner of training the brain to “rewrite programs” on how muscles will fire when hitting a golf shot. Fannon commented “I am energized and excited to modify my style of teaching to incorporate the ‘reprogram, rehearse, repeat’ style of teaching in working with my students at Blue Rock.” Blue Rock’s members, resort guests and the general public will all benefit from Fannon’s advanced certification through golf schools, private lessons and group clinics.
