DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., August 28, 2017 – The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Teaching and Club Professionals (T&CP) membership announced today the launch of an annual recognition of the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional’s Top 50 LPGA Teachers, presented in partnership with Women’s Golf Journal. This new initiative will identify and recognize the best LPGA instructors from more than 1,700 LPGA certified professionals worldwide.

All LPGA Class A Members in good standing who meet the eligibility requirements were invited to apply. An independent golf industry selection committee reviewed eligible applications and identified the LPGA Top 50 Teachers, utilizing a weighted points formula.

“The LPGA is excited to partner with Women’s Golf Journal on this annual recognition,” said LPGA Chief Teaching Officer, Nancy Henderson. “More than 70 percent of our members teach the game of golf for a living and they are dedicated to the advancement of golf through teaching golfers of all ages and abilities to enjoy the game of golf.”

LPGA professionals are uniquely trained to teach the game of golf through a holistic approach to learning golf and performing on the golf course. This people-centered approach emphasizes the communication skills that allow the teacher/coach to develop relationships built on respect and relevance. The heart of the LPGA curriculum for its members is the LPGA Integrated Performance System. This framework for the teacher and golfer addresses the physical characteristics of golfers, their motivation and goals for their game, their equipment and motor learning and control concepts.

Women’s Golf Journal is an American national magazine dedicated to celebrating the lifestyle of golfing women everywhere.

“The depth of teaching expertise in the LPGA is astounding,” said Women’s Golf Journal Publisher Matthew Squire. “We’re honored to celebrate the teaching expertise of these coaches in Women’s Golf Journal, and are delighted that these incredible women are finally beginning to receive the recognition and the credit they so richly deserve.”
