After immigrating to Texas in 2001, golf became a new challenge for me through daily practice and playing, even in my busy engineer’s life where I could learn and practice golf much more than in my native Korea.

After obtaining USGTF certification, I have developed a more consistent swing and better scores through my playing and practicing, and have learned a great deal by studying theory. As a result, I developed my philosophy of teaching golf. In 2015, I started working as the director of the USGTF Foreign Language Certification division and am imparting my knowledge and experience to those USGTF candidates.

Above all, I learned a great deal from the curriculum’s How to Teach Golf textbook, and instructed the candidates based on this content. I also opened the Prime Golf Academy to teach beginners through advanced players. In particular, seeing those who have obtained their USGTF certification through me and to teach others to play golf has been highly rewarding, and I plan to continue doing so for quite some time.
