LPGA teaching professional Lana Ortega is making her mark on the world of golf: she’s been named one of the 50 Best Women Teachers by Golf Digest, has been a contributor for Golf Tips Magazine, and contributes to a slew of other golf publications. Lana approaches lessons with the mentality that everyone has a unique swing, and she adapts her private and group lessons to help students develop a form best suited to their individual characteristics. An expert club fitter, Lana also ensures that her students are swinging with the right equipment, rather than subbing in a modified soup ladle for a sand wedge. Lana also embraces new golf technology such as video analysis and offers clinics for women.

Between them, Impact Golf's Eli Haskell and Joe Egnoski claim a pretty impressive golf resumé. For years, they worked with nationally ranked golf academies and took part in seminars with esteemed instructors. One day, though, they came to a realization: improvements don't happen in one day, but rather as part of a long and dedicated process. And that's exactly where the duo now specializes in––developing processes and habits for students who
want to play better golf. Eli and Joe focus especially on swing dynamics, never giving into style fads or the temptation to simply rely on psychokinesis. Students, meanwhile, come out on the other end of lessons not only producing consistently solid swings, but also understanding why and how they're doing so.
The golf swing is a notoriously fickle beast. One day you’re striping your tee shots down the middle of the fairway, and the next you’re duck-hooking them out-of-bounds and into the mouth of the neighborhood yodeler. Worse still, you don’t feel like you’re doing anything differently. This is why a separate set of eyeballs—ones with experience scrutinizing hip rotations and diagnosing overly quick takeaways—can be extremely helpful in getting back on the right track. At Impact Golf Academy, golfers don’t get just one set of eyes, they get two.
Joe Egnoski and Eli Haskell are the proprietors and head pros at this facility, where they leverage decades of experience teaching everyone from touring professionals to weekend warriors. Just as important, they consider themselves lifelong students of the game, attending seminars and exchanging ideas with fellow teaching professionals. Eli has extensive experience coaching at the high school level, even guiding multiple boys and girls to state championships. On the other hand, Joe spent a decade under the tutelage of nationally ranked instructor Mike McGetrick. Together, the duo boasts nearly three decades of experience, which any amateur can draw on during individual lessons, multisession programs, and free initial consultations.

The American Basketball Association has nearly 90 teams. But ever since their founding in 2010, the Colorado Kings have resided amongst the elite, leaving most of the league in their wake. During their inaugural season, the Kings made quite the impression: they went 24-1, and advanced to the ABA's Elite 8 round of the playoffs. Instead of celebrating that success by having all of its players dipped in gold, the team followed up with a record-setting effort in 2011, when it recorded an ABA-best 32 victories in a row. For as much success as the Kings have had on the court, they've also made an impact off of it. The organization's players give back to the community in a number of ways, including by running youth basketball camps and hosting charity golf tournaments.
