About Ryan

Ryan joined Chris Foley Golf School team in 2019. A graduate of San Diego Golf Academy and has experience caddying on the Web.Com tour which allowed him the opportunity to study some of the top players in the world and how they manage their way around the golf course. Ryan is currently a Class A member of the PGA of America, and he is also a certified PGA coach.

As one of the young upcoming instructors in the state of Minnesota, Ryan believes the focus should be having fun with golf but also creating goals and trying to reach those goals. He is a big believer in the skill of practicing and working on your golf game to reach your goals. By setting goals and enjoying the process of improving your game, it will allow you to reach your goals and enjoy the game much more.

Ryan has spent time studying Harvey Penick’s and Stan Utley teaching philosophy as he believes they are some of the greatest instructors of all time. Ryan enjoys giving lessons and enjoys watching his students reach their goals, but his expertise is putting. He is known as one of the best putters around the mid-west and believes everyone can become a good putter regardless of their skill level.
