Tom Stickney – Celebrity Golf Instructor
It’s a very rare thing to meet a golfer who doesn’t want to improve their game. In fact, most golfers are willing to do almost anything, with the exception of magic rituals, to lower their handicap or improve their swing. Fortunately for members of our Club, they can take advantage of ‘ThePromonroy Golf Academy’ in Park City that features tens of thousands of dollars of golf instructional technology to elevate your game.
‘The Promontory Golf Academy’ also has a secret weapon in the form of Tom F. Stickney II, rated one of the Top 100 golf instructors in the United States. Besides being an exceptional golf teacher, Tom has also published more than 120 articles on the subject of playing better golf, and his ability to teach children how to play golf also shines through. Over 250 golf professionals from around the world have had instruction from Tom Stickney, so we are confident that he can help improve your game.
You have a number of options available to you as part of the individual instruction program. These include a swing analysis program, using the specialized Trackman III software to look at every single aspect of your swing. The results then provide you with a personalized improvement plan to allow you to get more from your game. Tom doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” solution to improving anyone’s game of golf, and this particular training program is part of his holistic approach to creating better golfers.
You can also sign up for an “unlimited” lesson program with Tom, which can be more than 30, 60 or 90-days. Try the skills testing ‘Combine’ program which grades every single aspect of your overall game, so you can see exactly where you need to focus your attention on to see some tangible improvements to your round of golf. The team at The Promontory Golf Academy is also happy to discuss custom training programs with you to get the best results possible.
Group Tuition – Clinics
There’s also the option of participating in a group training program, with lessons available to suit people of all skill levels. The men’s group training program takes places in the practice area of the Jack Nicklaus course, while the women’s group tuition program uses the Dye training facility instead. There’s a maximum of 8 people per training group, and the tuition itself lasts 90 minutes.
If you still feel that you want a little bit more help than everything mentioned so far, then you shouldn’t worry because there are a number of different golf “schools” you can also attend. You can cover your short game, the ‘Wedge School’ that uses the Trackman system to help short to medium hitters play a better game or there’s the very popular Putting School which will help any golfer master those long and short putts.
Tom has a basic philosophy in teaching golf which he has followed for his entire career, and it’s to simply build on the foundation of golf skills you already have, and not try to change your entire golfing “model”. Instead Tom willl teach you how to be a better player by helping you master the fundamentals of playing great golf, and showing you how to choose your shots more wisely. You’ll obviously get to have a lot of fun learning this stuff – an added bonus!
