Junior Golf Coaching
Lou loves to coach Junior golfers because he truly believes golf coaching helps 9-year-old juniors to collegiate young men and women achieve their dreams of becoming great golf players.
Additionally, Lou finds that professional golf coaching impacts the hopes and dreams parents have for their children and young adults in golfing. Through the years, Lou gets to enjoy the many success stories of parents and Junior golfers who are achieving their dreams together that involve fulfillment through golfing.
Lou is a former Top 50 U.S. Kids Golf Certified coach with over 10 years of experience in the U.S. Kids Golf organization. He is also a certified Discover Golf coach, which is a golf coaching system that aims to help Junior golfers focus early sporting experiences around free play. This form of coaching in free play slowly moves Junior golfers to more structured forms of deliberate golf practice. This system is backed by universally accepted research that supports video game style coaching facilitated by interactive leaderboards. Altogether this coaching system is an extremely fun experience for Junior golfers and very effective in developing the correct skillsets for golf success.
Lou’s professional accomplishments also include State Director for LPGA and USGA Girls Golf Club for over 10 years. Additionally, he served as the Head Coach as the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois from 1997 to 2003. In this role, Lou led the Men’s Golf team to two national championship with eighteen players advancing to Division I and Division III NCAA schools.

Group Coaching for Junior Golfers
Research tells us that learning with peers of similar ability can increase motivation and skill acquisition.
Although with Junior golfers, we know that they generally will focus best on one or two corrections at a time. In private lesson, it is easy to deviate from focusing on one or two corrections at a time. However, in group lessons the dynamics of instruction and interaction are different, thus better for the Junior golfer.
For example, by watching a peer successfully play a chip shot, the confidence and performance of the Junior golfer is shown to increase. This learning dynamic is especially true for beginner Junior golfers. This is because the skill of a coach is often non-relatable to the Junior golfer, but the skill of a peer is very relatable.
Best of all for Junior golfers is that they meet new friends and future playing partners.
