The TOUR Academy recently announced Director of Education, Travis Fulton, is ranked by Golf Digest as a “Top 40 Instructor Under the Age of 40.” Currently located in Jacksonville, Florida, Fulton splits his time between the PGA TOUR Academy at World Golf Village and TOUR Academy TPC Sawgrass. In addition to his role with the TOUR Academy, Fulton is also a contributing writer for PGATOUR.com and Golf Illustrated and appearing as a weekly guest on the PGA TOUR Network on XM Radio.
Travis Fulton has been a part of the TOUR Academy since its inception in 2001, and brings 11 years of experience to the organization. He began playing golf in his home town of Kellogg, Idaho at the age of 8 and continued to excel to reach an elite playing level throughout his college career at Lewis-Clark State College, where he won the Pacific Northwest Athletic Conference.
“We are so excited that Travis has earned this great honor while being a part of the TOUR Academy,” said John Fechter, President of the TOUR Academy. “Travis has been with us since the beginning and he truly embodies what the TOUR Academy is all about and has been a large part in creating our vision to deliver the best golf instruction in the world.”
“I am so honored to be recognized alongside such great instructors,” Says Fulton. “I truly enjoy what I do, and getting recognized for something that I love to do, there is no greater achievement.”
Fulton’s accomplishments have put him alongside some of the game’s finest instructors. His studies in the geometry and biomechanics of golf specific motion, club fitting and fitness put him at the top of the teaching spectrum. He is able to teach and help players of any skill set, from first time golfers to low handicappers, to juniors to professionals.
Additionally, Fulton has been instrumental in the TOUR Academy global expansion. In 2010, Fulton and the TOUR Academy team have been involved in two major initiatives including consulting for the Chinese National Golf Team in April at TPC Sawgrass and the CIMB Junior Development Program in Malaysia. “I am very proud of our instructors that have been living in China the past six months. We are working with the Chinese National Team in preparation for the Asian Games in November, as well as our team that has been traveling to Malaysia to continue working with the top junior golfers from the countries of Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore,” says Fulton. “I think it’s great to see the TOUR Academy continue to do great things in our own country, in addition to beginning growth in the international markets.”
