Operation 36’s Top 50 Golf Coaches List is the only one of its kind to use quantitative metrics to determine who has the most impact on golf through their program. A key component of the Op 36 golf program is the ability to measure the progress of the golfer’s course. Golf coaches are evaluated by their use of formal golf matches throughout the year, the application of the Op 36 program, the evaluation of golfers’ progress throughout the season, and the use of tools. social online to encourage more practice and play.

“Our intention in creating this award was to be able to show families which coaches and teams go above and beyond for their golfers every day,” said Ryan Dailey, PGA, COO and co-founder of Operation 36. “Congratulations to Corey and the entire Compass Pointe team for delivering an exceptional program that we call a “Top 50 Experience”.

Op 36 provides a platform for a solid curriculum through a phone app that allows students to watch videos of covered content during class. If a student misses a class, they can watch the videos and find out exactly what was covered that day. What sets Op 36 apart from other group golf programs is that juniors and adults can get onto the golf course and play almost immediately – no other instruction program offers a faster path. . Old-fashioned teaching methods place value on training on the training ground for months before students have a chance to play golf on the course.

Higgs’ teaching style goes far beyond the game of golf as he works to build character and help students understand that their score is not what golf is all about. How you set your goals, work to reach your potential and how you persevere in a difficult situation or challenge is what really matters.

“I like to be creative with our learning activities by engaging our young people with practical learning solutions,” Higgs said. “Our kids are having a lot of fun and are excited to talk about golf with their family and friends.
