Many golf instructors grow up loving the game of golf, but precious few can say they inherited their passion from a golf legend. As the son of Billy Casper—1970 Masters champion, two-time U.S. Open champion, and 1978 World Golf Hall of Fame inductee—Byron Casper is one instructor who can say just that. He serves as the chief lesson-giver of his eponymous golf academy, carrying out the day-to-day instruction on the range at Thanksgiving Point Golf Course. He helps players improve by making tweaks to both their swings and mindsets, relying upon video analysis to reveal the presence of backswing hitches and downswing giggle fits. Students can elect to take direction on the range, within a TruGolf simulator loaded with more than 75 famous golf courses, or out on the course, where the player will receive coaching on strategic aspects of the game such as course management and awareness of the rules.
