There are 27,000 PGA professionals eligible for the PGA Master Professional status—only 178 have attained the elite credential for mastering instruction. Among these distinguished golf professionals is André Panet-Raymond. To meet the Master level's requirements of maintaining "the highest degree of excellence for themselves and their operations," golf pros have to complete a Master's project in their chosen career path (from operations to instruction), in much the same way every college professor must learn to crochet their own tweed jacket before earning their PhD.
His classroom: the rolling greens of The River Club in Bradenton and the rolling greens of two golf courses in North Carolina. His students: everyone from advanced adults to young kids just learning to swing. In fact, U.S. Kids Golf named Panet-Raymond one of the Top 50 instructors in 2004, an honor he continues to uphold after teaching more than 40,000 lessons, which range from basic
concepts for beginners to mental training for tour players.
Tim Conaway does not believe in a one-swing-fits-all approach to golf. That’s why he helps his clients develop swings based on golfer-specific factors, such as size, strength, and whether or not a student has a third arm. With more than a dozen years of teaching experience under his belt, Tim supplements his ability for spotting flaws with state-of-the-art video technology. He also focuses on the mental aspects of the game, teaching students how to visualize shots and manage the course to their advantage. After the lesson, students get virtual “lockers” on Tim’s website stocked with lesson notes and personalized recommended resources.
