Garrett Froggatte, an accomplished player and coach who played alongside 2016 PGA champion Jimmy Walker at Baylor University, is the most recent addition to Golf Channel Academy (GCA), a dedicated network of teaching facilities operating with the active support of Golf Channel, the game’s leading global multimedia and golf entertainment source. Golf Channel Academy is the first network of its kind devoted to efficiently growing the business of golf instruction. Garrett is just the second instructor from the state of Colorado to be added to the prestigious network.
“I’m very excited to be among this group of highly successful, motivated and influential teachers,” said Froggatte, who has been at The Club at Flying Horse since 2008 and has since grown The Club’s golf programs many times over. “This is a great opportunity for golf coaches to work together and learn from one another, adopting best coaching practices to better serve their students. My goal is to help clients learn to play better and enjoy playing golf more.”
Being a Golf Channel Academy lead instructor includes contributing tips and techniques for broadcast on the Golf Channel. Garrett has traveled to Orlando, FL to film in the Golf Channel Studio and on the course. His favorite format is the “Solved in 60 Seconds” segment. “I really had to boil my thoughts down to a single point, which is how I teach every day.” said Froggatte when asked about one of his recent trips.
Garrett continues to compete in local professional events, including multiple Colorado Opens, he and shot a 66 to win a U.S. Open Local Qualifier. He enjoys teaching beginning and intermediate golfers as well as juniors, and has helped grow the club’s PGA Junior League program from zero to four teams and 48 players. Several of Froggatte’s juniors have gone on to play collegiate golf.
