What instructors who have become Certified Golf Coaches are saying about this unique, ground-breaking program...

“There is nothing else like this in the world of golf instruction. This program answers all those questions in the back of my head for all these years about why my students didn’t progress faster. Dr. Rick brings a fresh perspective to coaching golfers that has transformed my ability to get students to the next level. This is a game changer for our profession!”

“Do you want to have an immediate and meaningful impact with your students?  Do you want to attend a program that WILL make an immediate and meaningful impact on your life?  If so, this program is one of the few imperative programs that any serious golf instructor MUST attend.This class guides you through the steps it takes to go from acceptable to exceptional teaching. You simply owe it to yourself and your students to take a very careful look at what it offers.  In fact, call me and I'll answer any questions you may have personally–and no, I do not get a commission–this program is just that important to your success.”

"I cannot think of a more qualified person that I could have spent four days with than Dr. Rick Jensen. It was a wonderful learning experience and I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about being the best teacher and coach they can be."

Joey Wuertemberger

Jim McLean Golf Schools

Ft. Worth, TX

“This program is brilliant!  Thank you, Dr. Jensen, for paving the way to a more effective approach to golf instruction.  The Certified Golf Coaches Association is the answer that our entire industry has needed for a long time. I can't imagine any serious golf instructor who would pass on it.

     As an industry, our approach to golf instruction is broken. This is the missing piece. Everyone who is serious about teaching will realize this eventually... hopefully sooner rather than later. It lays out a thorough strategy for developing a player through their entire process of improvement and the best part is it works with every swing methodology.”


Trillium Sellers, Teaching Professional

“Dr. Rick Jensen's Certified Golf Coaches Association training should be a prerequisite for all golf coaches and instructors. Not only will certified coaches understand how to maximize their business potential, but Dr. Jensen’s passion, delivery and information are second to none. His training does not revolve around the latest swing theories, but instead it provides coaches with a clear understanding of how people learn and develop their skills."

Bill McInerney, Founder

“Rick understands the teaching industry better than anyone I know. This Certification will forever change the perception of how golf should be taught as well as how students learn and retain information. Rick is changing golf’s paradigm forever. I have always believed there is a “missing link” between teachers and students and I also believe Rick has bridged the gap. This certification training transforms teachers into coaches. As coaches we become more proficient in improving golfers’ success for the long term. Results will be retained over a longer period of time and withstand the pressures of golf at all levels because of Rick’s proven “Four Steps to Mastery.” This was the best investment I could have made for my career.”

Eve VanderWeele, Head of Instruction

“Dr. Rick Jensen’s Certified Golf Coaches training has provided me with the necessary tools to offer more effective high-impact, long-term development programs. This certification program is an absolute must for any coach dedicated to maximizing their students’ results.”


Laird White, Director of Instruction

The Georgian Bay Club

Clarksburg, Ontario, Canada



“Although I have had a coaching program for the past 12 years, the Certified Golf Coaches Association program I attended tied up many loose ends for me. It gave me a clear understanding of motor learning that I need to achieve maximum success in coaching golf. The program provided the practical information that I was able to implement in my coaching the day I got back from the program. It is a must-attend course for those who wish to make an impact on the game of golf.”


Jackie Cannizzo, Director of Instruction

Country Club of Roswell

Roswell, Georgia



“Dr. Jensen offers a coaching certification program that has exposed me to a revolutionary approach to improving my instruction skills.

Dr. Rick shared his knowledge of the “Four Steps to Mastery” approach. These four steps are discussed in his wonderful book Easier Said Than Done and provided insight that I have never seen before in any other educational offering.”


Steve Patterson, Director of Instruction

Fossil Trace Golf Club

Golden, CO



“To be involved with an elite group of individuals who treat golf training like other sports is wonderful.  The Certified Golf Coaches Association Program allows that to happen. As an added bonus, it provides a game plan for generating the income quality golf coaches deserve.”


Bob Percey, Founder

Inner Circle Golf Academy

Northville, MI



“The golfing culture has misled golfers about the process one must go through to improving one’s game. Dr. Jensen did a great job of explaining the four steps to mastery and showing me how to incorporate mastery into my lessons. This will make me a better Coach as I take my students through the four steps.”

“The Certified Golf Coaches Association training is the real deal. Dr. Rick Jensen delivers from an authentic base of scientific research to enhance your skills in developing a golfer’s performance.”  


Karen Bukowski

Millcreek Golf & Learning Center

“I really think this is the new way to teach golf. I hope this is the beginning of the end of the driving range assembly line mentality. Dr. Rick opened my eyes to an understanding of motor learning and how it applies to building a golf swing and he provided the practical tools to help my students learn faster and retain the improvement longer.”


Kevin Weeks, Director of Instruction

Cog Hill G. & C.C.

Lemont, IL


“The Golf Coaches Certification was ­– by far – the most useful three-and-a-half days I've spent to improve myself as a coach and business owner.  Dr. Rick's information and delivery has helped me run my business more efficiently instead of my business running me.  His experiences, knowledge and research-based information in areas such as how people learn and how to give proper feedback to students is something that too many teaching professionals were never taught or don't do.  Understanding how to provide accurate and timely communications and feedback and understanding human motor learning and motor performance is an absolute must for our profession.”

“The Golf Coaches Certification program given by Dr. Jensen was one of the best programs I have ever taken. It was very informational, engaging and productive. Dr. Rick taught us things we can put into use immediately and has helped me move from being just a teacher to a more versatile coach.”

“This course was life changing for me! I'm having to reevaluate where I'm at and how to move my business in the direction of coaching. I have so much more to learn and I am as excited as I've been in years about the direction I'm taking. Thank you Dr. Rick! I’m looking forward to learning even more.”


Stan Sayers

"I am always looking for ways to enhance my education through various certifications from top teaching curriculums. Dr. Jensen's program is second to none and the missing piece to my puzzle. This program provides training above and beyond anything I had previously seen. Applying these coaching methods to my curriculum will certainly help my students' performance where it matters most: On the golf course."


Dennis Sales, Founder

"I am proud to be a part of this coaching association because Dr. Rick's expertise and knowledge will shine through each one of us.  The golf industry is fortunate to have Dr. Rick. Because of him a new era of coaching golf to create faster and sustainable improvement has a very bright future."


Scott Wickham

“I first started working with Dr. Rick Jensen in 1993 and his knowledge was instrumental in helping me achieve my dream of playing on the LPGA tour. Now I am implementing those same high-quality coaching principles with my students to help them train more effectively and lead them to lower scores.”

“I have been a member of the PGA since 1977 and teaching and coaching the game of golf is my passion. I recently attended Dr. Rick Jensen's Golf Coaches Certification Program and it was the best three-and-a-half days of my teaching career. If you are looking to elevate your teaching business, expand your professional credentials, and more importantly distinguish yourself from the so-called "norm" in teaching, then this program is a must for you.”


Rick Krebs, Director of Instruction

"Attending Dr. Rick Jensen's Golf Coaches Certification program has truly been one of the best things that I have ever done for myself and my business in the 30 years that I have been teaching and coaching. The program had an excellent blend between the art, science and business of golf coaching. The class was just the right size and I was surrounded by top-notch, like-minded professionals. It's about more than being a swing guru, a lot more. So step up and make a paradigm shift. This program is a slam dunk!”


Paul Horton

"Truly an eye opener! This has been an intense program that validated my own believes in the way the game of golf should be learned, practiced and played!” 


Alicia Dibos, Director Of Instruction

“The time I spent learning from Dr. Rick have already impacted my teaching and I was able to integrate very quickly what I learned into my work with my clients. Having played and been successful on the European and LPGA Tours for 15 Years, I have the experience of understanding what it takes to improve and I know it is not only working on your golf swing that’s going to improve performance. There are so many variables and skills that need to be taken into consideration. Dr. Rick created this program to help us – the new generation of Coaches – to educate and help our students reach their goals through a structured and efficient process that takes into account all the critical variables in the game.”


Patricia Meunier-Lebouc

“Every once in a while you are fortunate enough to attend a professional seminar that has an immeasurable impact. This is one of them.  Dr. Jensen believes that we as professionals can do better, be more successful and ultimately change the way people learn the game. He backs it up with science, his extensive experience and his passion for golf. This program is not to be missed.”
