About Gary Scheid

Print Bio

From winning state and district championships with his high school in New York, to traveling across the country playing on mini-circuits as a pro, to then working as Director of Instruction at Indian Lakes Country Club, IMG Academy coach Gary Scheid has thirty years of comprehensive experience within the golf industry.  

Since arriving at IMG Academy in 2000, Gary has worked with numerous student-athletes now playing on national and international tours, including golfer Ben Lyons, LPGA tour players Mika Miyazato and Jodi Evert, and Symetra tour players Gloriana Sato and Molly Evensen. On a daily basis, Gary instills perseverance in his student-athletes emphasizing that there’s not one thing in golf that is a defining moment, there’s no bad shot or bad day on the course that will define you as a person. Continue to strive and improve your game each and every day. 

As a certified club fitter for the PGA, Titleist and TaylorMade, Gary has fitted players on the LPGA, European, Asian, Nationwide, and Latin PGA tour.
