Doug Lemmons, PGA - Ohio Junior Golf
Academy - U.S. Kids
Born and raised in Canton, Ohio. I have been a Golf Professional
for over 12 years working at Private Country Clubs across Northeast
Ohio. I have devoted my teaching career towards developing our
juniors into life-long players of this game. I work with children
as young as five years old. They are our future and as a two-time
award winner of The PGA President's Council, my passion and
aspiration is to grow the game of golf.
By bringing the U.S Kids Canton Local Tour, your
child has a place to shine and grow. This is an opportunity for
families to share special moments with their child or grandchild
and watch them reach their personal best!
My philosophy is to develop a student to their
full potential based on their physical abilities and learning
style. I have always been described as a very patient teacher with
good communication skills and a sense of humor that encourages a
relaxed atmosphere and a creative learning environment. I develop
juniors so they can compete and or aid them in achieving such goals
as having fun, playing on their High School team, or receiving a
Scholarship to College.
We will develop a pre-shot routine together that
will help them develop more confidence on the golf course by
improving their skills. Together, we can lengthen their drives,
improve the accuracy of approach shots, and learn how to save
strokes around the greens. Learning the ball flight laws will help
recognize swing flaws as they occur and make the necessary
corrections. We will create an individualized practice routine that
focuses on how to improve swing fundamentals.
