Golf Digest and Golf Magazine Top Teacher Gary Gilchrist and PGA Professional Colby Huffman teamed up to detail their training blueprint from working with top-ranked players across all levels in their new book Train For Golf Like An Olympian.
Train For Golf Like An Olympian details the system that Gilchrist and Huffman have researched, tested, utilized, and proven with hundreds of students: juniors, amateurs and professionals (including 75 AJGA All-Americans and even Major Champions) over the past two decades. The system and concept of periodization that Gilchrist and Huffman utilize has produced numerous champions in other sports such as cycling, running, tennis, wrestling, and swimming, as well as by great golf champions such as Tiger Woods.
The book has been a quick hit, already rising to the top of amazon’s ranks for #1 AMAZON HOT NEW RELEASES GOLF LIST, #2 AMAZON BEST SELLER GOLF LIST and #1 AMAZON BEST SELLER SPORT PSYCHOLOGY LIST. The e-book is a digital release on the Amazon Kindle. Without a Kindle device, the free Kindle app for smartphones, tablets and computers, makes Train Like An Olympian available for all readers.
Gilchrist and Huffman’s methods teach golfers how to understand their own game and swing, and how to utilize a “troubleshooting guide” to create self-sufficiency.
Gilchrist has led the charge in junior golf player development, developing three of the world’s most successful junior golf programs. It all started at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL, where he developed the first junior golf program of scale and was the Director of Golf from 1995 to 2004. Gilchrist then founded his namesake academy, Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy in 2007 near Orlando in Howey in the Hills, after spending three years as the Director of Golf at the International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head, SC, where he and Huffman coached and developed many of the world’s top juniors.
Train For Golf Like An Olympian details the latest game-changing information on: technique, mindsets, tournament plans, training schedules, short game, evaluations, goal-setting, and peak performances, using groundbreaking knowledge from various athletic disciplines. Golfers will learn how to analyze their performance and understand how to make a plan to learn and improve. This plan also prevents the most common faults and bad habits, which create bad shots and bad scores from ever creeping in one’s game.
