Academy Teaching Philosophy

At the Dogwood Golf Academy, we’re all about improving your game and helping you enjoy it more.

Our philosophy about teaching is that everyone can play better. Not everyone is going to have the same golf swing because all bodies are different. But their are basic fundamentals to every golf swing – body position, fluid motion and delivering the club head squarely to the ball. Team Ross Golf leader, J.R. Ross, has been improving games for over 25 years.

Golf is a team game. You are the player and Team Ross Golf is the coach. Every player needs simple and directadvice from a good coach to play better.

Practice should have a purpose. Improvement comes not with “beating balls” all day on the range without a plan. Improvement comes when you have a good coach to help you determine solid goals and show you focused drills to achieve progress. A golf game and precisely the golf swing is achieved with focusing on one drill at a time to build success over time. You’ll see a little discipline with practice pays off on the course.

J.R. Ross’ coaching methods are clear and concise. A PGA Member since 1989, he has specialized in teaching golf to players of all levels. For 10 years he served as Head Golf Pro and Director of Golf at Chateau Elan. He has also served as Director of Instruction for The Nike Golf Learning Center.
