Tyrus, the 2014 Kentucky PGA Teacher of the Year, has a featured weekly golf instruction blog on GolfChannl.com. He focuses and highlights the weeks winner on the PGA Tour. A PGA professional, Tyrus has done significant work in junior golf programs, but he has also worked with adult players of all ability levels. He began teaching golf in 2005 following the completion of his collegiate golf career at Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Kentucky. Tyrus has been teaching at the Larry Ward High Performance Golf Academy in Lexington since 2011, after working as an Assistant Golf Professional at Kentucky's Man O' War Golf Learning Center for six years.
Tyrus has set teaching goals of being able to build trust with his students while determining the method of teaching most compatible with each of his student's learning styles.
My goal as a golf instructor is to teach players of all skill levels how to play the game of golf to the best of their abilities. I believe that it is important for my students to know how much I care for them before they know how much I know about the golf swing. I do not believe in a single method for teaching a golf swing. It is my job to determine the method and learning style of each individual student to help them achieve their goals for the game of golf. I believe that my role as a teacher is not only to teach the golf swing, but to also build trust and motivate my students to try their best. I am a firm believer that all parts of the game are equally important in order for a student to achieve their goals.
“Tyrus, I can't think you enough for the help that you gave me. After trying out what you told me to work on, I went out and won the first tournament that I played just 2 days after going to the range and practicing on what you gave me to work on. Thanks Tyrus and thanks swingfix!! ”
