The ‘current administration’ is still doing things the old way, which is trying to force students into a method, or model. I think it’s time for us to take a complete new direction in golf instruction, and high time for people to stop being frustrated with their game and with themselves
Greensboro, GA (Vocus) June 9, 2010
He may be running for an office that does not exist, but that has not stopped Charlie King from announcing his candidacy for President of Golf Instruction.
King, the Director of the Reynolds Golf Academy at Reynolds Plantation, created this fictional campaign during this election year to highlight a problem and provide the solution.
“The ‘current administration’ is still doing things the old way, which is trying to force students into a method, or model. I think it’s time for us to take a complete new direction in golf instruction, and high time for people to stop being frustrated with their game and with themselves,” says King.
An acclaimed teacher, author and 17-year member of the PGA of America, King wrote the “New Rules of Golf Instruction,” the 2009 e-book that led to the development of the New Rules Golf School at Reynolds Golf Academy. “Our ‘New Rules’ philosophy means we don't make you look like a golfer, we turn you into a golfer,” King says. “We focus on essential golf skills that great golfers all have in common.”
Since he is often told that his passion for teaching golf makes him sound like he’s running for office, King figured he might as well get in the race. Technically, there is no race – which may explain why King is currently running unopposed, and atop all the polls. No matter. While King may be innovative in his methods of getting golfers’ attention, he is equally intense in his approach to serious, success-oriented golf instruction.
“I started this campaign for President of Golf Instruction to draw awareness to the need for a different way of teaching and an innovative way of thinking about every golfer’s abilities,” said King, who has been repeatedly ranked as one of the leading golf instructors in the country.
“I want to invite golfers to join the revolution,” King says. “We are going to have fun with it, of course, but the reality is that I know they will find something that will make a real difference in their golf game.”
