Women in Golf Wednesday – Greta Anderson

Name

Greta Anderson

Where you live

Atlanta, GA

Where you work & what you do?

I do a lot of things!  In addition to my work as an LPGA Teaching Professional, I also keep busy as a business builder, strategist, and educator (feel free to learn more about all of that at www.DrGretaAnderson.com)!  I’m also the co-owner of BreatheWear, Inc. – a company that designs and distributes products that support sleep disorders.

In my life as an LPGA teaching professional, I serve as the co-site director for Girls Golf @ SheSteams in Henry County, GA, which is just south of Atlanta.  We’ve had an exciting summer program, and are looking forward to expanding our fall programming.

Additionally, I provide instruction individual and small group programming for adults through an innovative partnership I’ve established with a private club here in Atlanta.  We’ve found that this relationship allows each party to achieve their respective goals with greater flexibility, quality, and success.

How long have you been an LPGA member?

Since 2014

How was the process of becoming a member for you?

The process was very informative, interesting and fun for me.  I just LOVE to learn, so I really enjoyed the process.  It was amazing to see for myself how research-focused and evidence-based the LPGA’s approach to instruction really is.  So, I’d have to say that the process was also quite affirming!

What does it mean to be an LPGA member to you?

I’m SO very proud to be a member of the LPGA!!  This distinction really does have value and meaning in so many ways, and it is a privilege to have earned membership.  It motivates me to keep working to become better and better as a teacher, and as a person in general.

What is the best part about the membership for you?

I’m really enjoying the camaraderie; most every colleague I’ve met is positive, encouraging and so helpful.  It’s always great to be in an environment that fosters growth and continuous development.

What advice would you give someone just starting the program or thinking about starting?

Before starting the program, I’d encourage the person to really examine their goals to ensure that this credential is a good fit.  That is, if you’re not focused on becoming a great instructor (that is, you’re more focused on another niche within the golf industry), take the time to more fully review and understand the TEP program.

Going into the program, it’s important to remember that a substantial commitment of resources (time, financial, mental) will be required to successfully navigate this program.  So like anything else in life – go in with your eyes wide open!
