Tips from Payton Minear's @PGA Instagram Takeover
Golfers are always looking for new and creative ways to take their game to the next level.
From virtual coaching to instructional videos, technology has helped connect golfers to professionals all over the country.
Payton Minear, a PGA Professional at the Country Club of Darien, took over the PGA Instagram on Thursday and answered questions from golfers. From short-game tips, to helping them fix their slice, Minear was ready on the spot to provide coaching while giving a behind-the-scenes look at her life as a PGA Pro.
We couldn't let Payton's tips from her 'Instagram Takeover' disappear after 24 hours, so we pulled them together for a full recap. Check them all out in the video below.
PGA Golf Instructor
West Palm Beach, FL
I have been playing golf for 23 years and enjoy helping others fall (more) in love with the game I love most. Growing up, golf was and continues to be a family sport for me. My passion for teaching began at age seven when I started teaching my Grandma how to golf. I began my career in teaching early at the age of 16 and continue to seek ways to better myself as an instructor on the daily. I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with my degree in PGA Golf Management and have since been traveling North and South as a seasonal professional. I currently teach in Florida and in Massachusetts. I also provide Virtual Swing Analysis and Live Instruction on the CoachNow mobile app. I enjoy working with people of all walks of life, and all skill levels and abilities. I truly believe that we all have our own unique swings, and I focus on providing my students with what their swing style and body type demands. Simplicity is a big key with my instruction, and I look for the fewest possible changes that we need to make in order to improve ball contact and outcome. Short-game improvement, full swing, trouble shots, course management, mental performance, pre/post shot routines, and on-course instruction are just a few of the areas we could improve in your game together.
