David Windsor is an award-winning PGA of America Teaching Professional with over 20 years experience. David's dedication to teaching individuals of all ages and abilities has led to multiple North Florida PGA Section awards to include "Junior Golf Leader" in 2006 & 2010, "Teacher of the Year" in 2008 and the "Patriot Award" in 2011 & 2014 for his Patriotic contributions and dedication to military generations from WWII to Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts. He is considered one of the country’s foremost experts in teaching the physically challenged, or "Adaptive Golfers" as we say. Since 1999, David has developed and instructed adaptive golf classes on a weekly basis for physically/cognitively challenged juniors, adults, disabled Veterans and Wounded Warriors. Gaining extensive knowledge and program experience in these processes, David developed the Adaptive Golf Academy in 2006 (www.AdaptiveGolfAcademy.com), as the education platform to train other PGA Professionals and Physical/Occupational and Recreational Therapists on the underlying attributes of the game and how to conduct community programs with continuity, safety and effectiveness. His Academy has become the coach training entity for the Adaptive Golf Association, PGA of America's H.O.P.E. "Helping Our Patriots Everywhere" program initiative as well as other partner organizations throughout the country.

In collaboration with the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa, David co-founded the program which has conducted weekly adaptive golf clinics EVERY Friday for Service-members and Veterans in recovery since 2007. Other accomplishments include clinics with WWP, golf camps with Warrior Transition Units and coaching the elite members and officers of Special Operations Command at MacDill AFB-Tampa, FL.
