In this episode, Steve Loesher, PGA, Director of Player Development for Troon Golf discusses the three main qualities he believes all golf instructors need to have in order to be successful in their golf instruction business. First, Steve takes us back down his path to becoming a Director of Player Development, which began as an Assistant professional. Steve transitioned into the instruction/coaching world when he began coaching the George Mason Men's Golf Team while working at the local country club. Steve then transitioned into the Director of Instruction role for the Nike Golf Learning Center which was the beginning of him finding his niche of helping facilities, academies, and golf operations develop and expand their instructional programming benefiting the overall operation of the facility. Steve's development in his profession continued onward and upward into the role of Director of Player Development for a golf management company, Billy Casper Golf which, which had 18 clubs under its umbrella. In 2016 Steve was awarded the 2016 Middle Atlantic PGA Player Development Award and continued expanding his portfolio and deveoping some of the top instructors around the country including Erika Larkin, Cathy Kim, Marissa Crow, and Adam Harrell. With Troon Golf purchasing Billy Casper Golf in 2021, Steve is now the Director of Player Development for Troon Golf where he continues to flourish in helping instructors under the Troon Golf umbrella begin, develop, and expand their current instructional operations, uniquely to their location and allotted resources.
