Gray Plantation Golf Academy


PGA Head Golf Professional, Tyler Kuhn:  I have been teaching since 2007 and I enjoy the pleasure I can bring other people through the education and improvement of their game.  I do not believe in simply telling people what to do and how to do it.  I help people understand the cause and effect of their actions in order to produce to desired results.

PGA Assistant Golf Professional, Jonathan Jester:  Jonathan grew up in Up-State New York.  He has gained his golf knowledge through is experiences in the Bahamas, Las Vegas, and the Outer banks of North Carolina before coming to Lake Charles.  Jonathan is a great communicator and takes great care with students of all ages and ability levels.

Private Lessons are made by appointment with a minimum of 24 hours notice by contacting Tyler, Jonathan, and/or Devin at 337-562-1206 Ext. 1 or by email at [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]

Teaching Philosophy

Simply Better Golf, or "Sim-Ductive",  a phrase taught to me by PGA Professional Joe Hallet meaning, "Simple & Productive".  Swing thoughts and techniques that are simple to repeat and are undersood by individuals are the most productive.

Simple & Basic instruction varies depending on the student and how they process knowledge and learning.  Finding out about the student, their life outside of golf, previous experiences, the way they think on the course all helps me interact with the student so that I can help them understand what it is I am having them do.  The most common fundamentals are reinforced with every golfer when they come to Gray Plantation.  It is these fundamentals that allow golfers to simplify their thinking and understand what makes the golf ball curve, what makes the golf ball spin, how to hit it further, how vary your trajectory,  to help them lower their scores.
