About Travis

Growing up in Dana Point, CA, Travis was a student of all sports. He enjoyed playing them all, but when it came down to it, golf grabbed a hold of him and never let go. As a PGA member, TPI Golf Level 3 and certified instructor, Travis’ approach starts with the athlete. Utilization of high speed video, Swing Catalyst, K-Motion technology and launch monitors have provided further insight of the athlete in motion. Biomechanics, body-swing connection, feel, sound, rhythm, flow, are focal points he believes in and trusts will get you enjoying playing the game. His teaching experience began in 2006 and has been a lead instructor at Big Canyon Country Club since 2015. His wife Erin and three young children Courtlynn, Jordy and Bodie live in Aliso Viejo. They all enjoy working out, playing sports, the beach, mountains and travel adventures. Travis can be reached at 949-291-0530 or emailed at Follow @travisnelsongolf
