Since 1988, the biennial PGA Teaching & Coaching Summit has corralled every type of expert coach from the gridiron to the golf course.
Some of golf’s most famous names have made an appearance, too, lending their advice to the PGA Professionals and coaches in the audience seeking what matters most: How they can improve, and help the people they coach improve, too.
The latest iteration of the PGA Teaching & Coaching Summit starts this Sunday, Jan. 22 in Orlando, Florida, ahead of the 2023 PGA Show, with a busy agenda and hundreds of coaches in attendance.
