Coaches from the Southern California PGA Teaching Committee were invited to a webinar in April with Dr. Rick Sessinghaus, PGA, and Collin Morikawa as a part of the SCPGA Youth Teaching and Coaching Summit virtual series.
Coaches had the opportunity to hear the remarkable coach and player journey of Morikawa growing from an 8-year old junior golfer to a PGA Tour winner.
Sessinghaus shared his coaching philosophies, how he and Collin fostered a “growth mindset” and more.
