Golf Program Structure
IMG Academy's golf program's streamlined approach ensures each student-athlete is both challenged and properly developing throughout their career. Coaches understand the individualized needs and ability level of each student-athlete and create a semester-long training plan and tournament schedule accordingly. IMG Academy golf places a significant emphasis on improving one’s grades, their game, and their growth.
IMG Academy's golf coaches have the highest levels of collegiate, PGA, and LPGA experience and regularly communicate with both student-athletes and families regarding an individual's progress and improvement. Coaches will work with student-athletes on the following core competencies throughout the year:
- Technical (tee shots, approach play, short-game, recovery, bunker play, putting)
- Strategy (planning, preparation, strategy, adaptability, composure, commitment)
- Physical (strength, power, speed, stability, flexibility, coordination)
- Mental (focus, control, confidence, resilience, reflection, environment)
- Goals (purpose, evaluation, action, reflection, short-term, long-term)
- Life Skills (character, integrity, values, discipline, community, accountability)
From a technical foundation to on-course strategy to mental toughness and goal-setting, IMG Academy's golf program's thorough testing and competition structure allows student-athletes of every level to identify a clear pathway to achieve their ultimate goals.
Detailed student-athlete performance reports also offer clarity and transparency on key areas such as driver and approach performance, short game and putting testing, core competencies both on and off the course, and more.
