I have been around junior golf my entire career. I always knew there was a better way to reach junior golfers than the traditional clinic format, but could never quite put my finger on it. After attending Richard Franklin’s education event it was so clear that this is the future of junior golf. DiscoverGolf is leaps and bounds ahead of anything else, it is as simple as that. I am so impressed with DiscoverGolf that I have joined the coaching staff in 2019. “
Through completing many education programs over the years I have learned a lot. Some stand out because of their technical insights, some because of their collective knowledge and system ideas. Discover Golf certification is a different education and in a very good way. The education invites the coaches to think outside the box using a well designed deck of choice golf games to create and design exciting challenges and missions which ignite not only excitement in the golfers but also the coaches themselves.
DiscoverGolf is a cutting edge, innovative way of developing golfers using the latest science and research that is character and skill development wrapped up in fun and innovative games engaging and challenging for all levels of golfers.
Richard Franklin’s DiscoverGolf certification program is an impressive demonstration of how golf coaches can reach new audiences by upgrading their thinking around coaching in a digital world. If you are a golf coach that is looking to improve both the effectiveness and presentation of your training program, I highly recommend attending a DiscoverGolf certification.
Richard Franklin is showing golf coaches the future of coaching, today. If you have an inkling that the current coaching model is flawed and major disruption is on the way, I strongly urge you to attend a DiscoverGolf event.
Richard Franklin’s passion to teach golf professionals how to run a successful program is unmatched in the world of Junior Golf
Download your brain the night before attending a DiscoverGolf event, because Richard pours out information that golf pros are not getting access to. DiscoverGolf education events are nothing like anything in the industry. For anyone serious about junior golf, they are a MUST.
DiscoverGolf education events are an otherworldly experince. Richard Franklin is clearly from another planet and he has granted us “humans” with his ideas.
I have done 5 events with Richard Franklin and DiscoverGolf. Each time I absorb something that shapes the way I do business. In the last year my junior golf program is up 175% based on these programs.
