2017 and 2014 Kentucky Section PGA Teacher of the Year

 

Biography

My story begins in Harlan, Kentucky where I was born and raised. I grew up on a small par 34, 9 hole golf course in the mountains of southeastern Kentucky. It was there that I learned this game that I have made my life. I began playing high school golf for Harlan High School when I was in 8th grade. After a junior golf career that included 2 Player of the Year honors from the Southeast Kentucky Junior Golf Tour, I signed to played golf at Cumberland College (now the University of the Cumberlands). Upon graduating college with a business degree, I began employment at Man O’ War Golf and entered the PGA Professional Golf Management Program where I became a Class A, PGA professional in 2010.  For more information or to visit Tyrus York’s website, click on the link TyrusYork.com.

Teaching Philosophy

My goal as a golf instructor is to teach players of all skill levels how to play the game of golf to the best of their abilities. I believe that it is important for my students to know how much I care for them before they know how much I know about the golf swing. I do not believe in a single method for teaching a golf swing. It is my job to determine the method and learning style of each individual student to help them achieve their goals for the game of golf.

I believe that my role as a teacher is not only to teach the golf swing, but to also build trust and motivate my students to try their best. I am a firm believer that all parts of the game are equally important in order for a student to achieve their goals.
