Straight shots from Golf Academy of America campuses

Jun 20, 2011

Golf Academy of America in San Diego and the Southern California PGA Section, San Diego Chapter, recently teamed up to provide an Employment and Interviewing Techniques Employment Seminar for PGA Professionals in the Southern California PGA Section.

Kevin Neisch, PGA, Director of Career Services for Golf Academy of America and Ken Ferrell, PGA, PGA Employment Consultant (and GAA alumni) discussed employment searching, interviewing techniques and strategies to show candidate/employee value to employers.

Jeff Sheets Golf Design now offers the official seals of all five military branches on The Tradition putter, a mallet style putter designed by exclusively for GTX.

Sheets is a 1988 graduate of Golf Academy of America and formerly resident shaft expert on the PGA Tour for Brunswick Golf (now known as Rifle/Royal Precision under the True Temper Company). He has designed clubs for major equipment manufacturers and has designed, assembled, and fit clubs used by top competitors to win major championships and Ryder Cup matches.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of all Military Putters will be donated to various military foundations.

Meanwhile, the Phoenix campus is inviting golf employers to their campus this summer in a series of open houses. The employers will have a chance to tour the new Chandler, AZ facility, discuss industry issues with the PGA Professional faculty and meet career-minded GAA students. Open houses at Golf Academy of America in Phoenix are scheduled for July 18 and August 1, 2011.

Finally, FOX 10's morning host Cory McCloskey had his golf swing analyzed during a live, on-air visit at the Golf Academy of America's campus in Phoenix. Not a bad swing, either, according to Pete Huber, Director of Golf Instruction, who used the K-Vest and V-1 technologies that GAA regularly employs to train its students.
