Jaime Gylan – Director of Instruction
The reason all golfers need instructors is because the game is so difficult and the golf swing is so complex. As a teacher it is my job to decipher the complexities of your golf game and relay it to you in a way you will be able to understand and apply. To become a great golfer you need to excel in all parts of the game. I enjoy the challenge of working with you on your weaknesses to make you a better overall player. Playing beyond what you thought you were capable of is fun. You know what else if fun? Seeing yourself get better. That’s what I love the most about teaching. I believe all golfers have the potential to get better. I believe together we can fulfill that potential.

Every golfer is different; no two are the same.
So why do so many golf instructors teach like they are?
Height, weight, arm length, shoulder width, hand size, etc. all contribute to different types of golf swings. You must be able to identify and accept the traits you possess in order to produce a golf swing that is most efficient to you.
I teach to the individual, whether I am working with a total beginner or a high level golfer that wants to discuss the technical points of the golf swing; all lessons are tailored to the individual’s requirements.
I start with the most critical fundamentals of the golf swing, taking the student’s abilities in mind, and then build their swing through the takeaway, transition, downswing, and follow-through. This helps each student develop their own golf swing from a solid foundation and learn how their swing works. By doing this, it enables the student to correct flaws they see in their game and ultimately help to take their game and enjoyment to the next level.
Jeremy grew up in West Frankfort, IL, attended college at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN on a baseball scholarship, and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelors’ degree in Sports Management.
After college, Jeremy signed a minor league contract to play for the New York Mets and continued to play professional baseball for 8 seasons. In addition to playing for the New York Mets minor league system, he played in the Colorado Rockies, Chicago White Sox, and Los Angeles Dodgers farm systems before finishing his career with the Lancaster Barnstormers in 2007.
After retiring from professional baseball, he applied his extensive knowledge of body/swing mechanics and ball flight laws to the golf course to help people attain their best and most efficient golf swing. Having been a professional baseball player provides Jeremy with a unique perspective on the golf swing, while also relating many of the traits from the baseball swing to golf.
