Gilchrist named to top 100 list

Gary Gilchrist, founder and head coach of the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy, was named one of GOLF Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers in America. The national publication selects only the 100 most elite teachers in the industry to receive the distinguished award.

“It is quite an honor to be recognized as one of GOLF Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers in America,” Gilchrist said in a press release from the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy. “My students and our coaching staff have played a big role in where I am today, helping to shape not only the Academy, but me as a teacher as well. We have all worked very hard, and this honor proves that we’re continuing to be successful.”

With a career that spans 20 years, Gilchrist has coached more than 75 Rolex Junior All-Americans and six Rolex Junior Players of the Year. He currently coaches Morgan Hoffman, Peter Hanson and Vicky Hurst, as well as Yani Tseng and Shanshan Feng, the Nos. 1 and 6 ranked females in the world respectively.

At the Junior All-Star Invitational in October, Gilchrist hosted a junior clinic for the field where he addressed the mental aspects of golf, shared his personal journey with the game and demonstrated practice techniques.

Based at the Mission Inn Resort & Club 40 minutes outside of Orlando, the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy is the leading full-time junior golf academy in the world. The Academy is committed to excellence in every facet of golf, fitness, personal development and academics, evident through exclusive relationships with Montverde Academy, an acclaimed private college preparatory school, and the American Junior Golf Association.

As part of GGGA’s partnership with the AJGA, the academy is the official title sponsor of the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy Junior All-Star Series, and AJGA tournament series reserved for the world’s top 12 to 15-year-old golfers.
