TAGC News

Update from TAGC President

I hope everybody had a great summer! 

I just wanted to take a little time to provide you with a re-cap of our annual Coaching School. This very well could have been one of the best coaching schools we have ever had. Each of the speakers did a great job and had something for every attendee to take home with them to make their programs better! 

Mark Harrison, The Executive Director of the North Texas PGA started things off with a presentation of the new facility in Frisco. The PGA is moving their headquarters to Texas and WOW! It’s going to be a special place. I feel certain that all of you and most of your kids will get the opportunity to see and use the courses, practice facilities and all that goes with it. 

Cameron Doan provided us with a great presentation on coaching the mental game and how we can better serve our players in that regard. All of our high school coaches in the speaker lineup did a great job of providing all of us with good information from fitness specific to golf to building relationships with our players and coaching philosophy. 

Thank you, Paige Martin, Celso Gonzalez, Mike Martin and Mercedes Trent. We sincerely appreciate you making the effort to get to coaching school and doing your part in making our profession better!

Joey Ashley, now the men’s assistant coach at The University of Texas San Antonio did a great job of speaking to us about the bridge between high school and college golf and Vince Clark from McLennan Community College delivered one of the most powerful speeches I have had the privilege to listen to in 40 years of attending Coaching School! During Coach Clark’s speech, I found myself a little sad…almost angry. There were 54 golf coaches in attendance for his speech. This email is going to over 1,400 coaches. That means there were 1,350 coaches that didn’t get to hear what Coach Clark had to share with us. I sincerely hope that when we have Coach Clark back to speak again next year that we will have significantly closed that gap. 

Myself, along with the leadership of the TAGC will be working hard to improve our organization in every way. We will continue to work to provide you with an organization of golf coaches that will do all they can to provide our kids with a good product. 

Please feel free to contact me with ideas, complaints, or anything else that you have to offer that will make high school golf better. We will be in touch very soon with new information regarding TAGC membership and activities. 

Our focus will be as follows…
1. What is best for our kids?
2. What is best for Texas High School Golf?
3. What can we do as coaches to do a better job of serving both of the above?
