It’s always sunny in Central Florida where we train year round at our beautiful and new state-of-the-art training facility here in Howey in the Hills, Fla.
Similar to GGGA’s Summer Golf Camp program, GGGA’s Winter Golf Camp program is modeled off our Full Time Junior Program and incorporates golf technical training with mental training, fitness training and on-course strategy for junior golfers, giving our students the opportunity to train when they might be all cooped up in the cold.
Students build confidence through a series of proven drills and strategies and utilize video analysis to discover areas for improvement during their stay at GGGA Winter Golf Camp.
All training sessions are carried out at our world-class facilities, and each athlete’s level of progress and performance are closely monitored by our team of certified coaches. Each student’s development is based on individual needs. More information about technical, mental and fitness training can be found below.
Students train in small groups of 6-8 students and work through their individual development plans with their coach all the while competing against the other students in their group. Coaches and students stick to their plan with a systematic approach, making sure all points are addressed and changes are made when needed.
Students are initially videoed so that the GGGA team can assign individual drills for each student to work on their full swing, short game and putting. By utilizing Gary Gilchrist’s innovative motion drills and corresponding fitness elements, students build confidence while playing by instantly showing a difference; knowing they have the ability to work through a challenge is paramount to playing like a champion.
Mental training is incorporated throughout Winter Golf Camp training as Director of Mental Training, Dr. Dan Vosgerichian and our coaching team work closely with each student on their pre and post-shot routines as well as on-course strategy. Students also work off the course on their mental game during classroom sessions as they learn to harness their mind and emotions for optimal performance. 1-on-1 sessions with GGGA’s Director of Mental Training, Dr. Dan Vosgerichian are also available upon request.
Fitness is essential for building a champion golfer. The fitness element of our Winter Golf Camp offers students a beginners understanding of how to prepare the body for golf both functionally and through conditioning. Our coaches are focused on preventing injuries and preparing the body for performing the golf swing.
Students will learn to improve their:
- stability, balance and mobility
- rotational power
- durable upper and lower body separation
Working with the best teachers in the world before, I’m very thankful to let me be part of his team, because in my opinion, he is the best in the business. I trained here for 8 months after college because I wanted to turn pro, and I went home after to play a qualifier for the PGA LA and won it. Gary takes you as a player, and develops you and your skills.
Gary is great at coaching all aspects of the game: swing, short game, mental training and on course. In the beginning everybody was so nervous and worried about me and Gary was the one to tell everyone to be patient and that gave me time to learn. Being taught by Gary is not just only being like good coach but good friend.
The competition in Singapore is good, but coming here is just another level. Training in the Full Time Junior Program that GGGA has, and training with Gary, this program will really enhance my game. It brings all the aspects of the golf game together: technical, mental, fitness and strategy.
“I improved about 10-15 strokes when I came here and all the coaches are professional and the most important thing is Gary comes to check us out everyday and for me that’s a privilege, because he inspires me in everything I do, not only in golf, but in life.”
