About Melinda

Coach Melinda wants to help golfers find a love for golf and their natural swing. She teaches a swing that is easy to learn, easy to repeat, and easy to practice, making the game of golf more enjoyable. Melinda has been around golf and dance her entire life, having a professional ballerina for a mother and a father who is a Life Member of the PGA. Although she was around golf at a young age, it did not become a passion until she played on her high school team. Her love for the game continued through college, amateur competitions, and into many years of teaching all ages and levels of the game. The swing Melinda teaches is called the Murray Method, a theory of the golf swing created by her father, John Murray. The method helps golfers find their true swing, something that is simple to recreate and truly works for every golfer. Whether you are looking to learn the game as a beginner, fix that pesky slice, or just build on the skills you already have, Melinda is the coach for you!
