Golf Instruction

Meet Sycamore Creek’s new Head PGA Professional!

Sycamore Creek is happy to announce that Gray Thouron has joined the SCGC team as Head PGA Professional. Gray has earned all three levels of the PGA Golf Management Program as well as a degree with honors from the Golf Academy of America in Orlando, Florida. He has served as First Assistant at the Legacy Club of Alaqua Lakes in Longwood, Florida and First Assistant at the Country Club of Petersburg in Virginia.

“Golf is not a game of perfect.”  This said by Dr. Bob Rotella.  After listening to him talk at a teaching seminar, it made me realize that if I can keep it simple for my students, just like his mental approach with his students, whom are some of the best players in the world, than everyone can enjoy the game more.

My approach is not to make someone swing like the pros, but to build their foundation.  Everyone has some sort of foundation of a golf swing.  My enjoyment in teaching is building that foundation in a way that does not overwhelm my students.  I’ve worked with golfers at every level and no matter what level they are at, everyone wants to be more consistent.  Acceptable misses are a good thing and if we can accept our misses, it will give us a chance to lower our scores and thus enjoy the game more!!!  Please come and put me to the test and I promise that you will not only improve your golf game, but your outlook on the game as well!!!

“Taking golf lessons with Gray has been one of the best investments I have made in the game.  Gray has patiently worked with me to identify and correct the key parts of my golf swing without trying to force me into a pre-determined “perfect” swing.  He has been flexible in his teaching style in order to adapt to my individual way of learning but continues to reinforce key concepts.  As a result of his help, I am playing better golf and also enjoying the game more than I ever have before.”     Steve W.
