Christopher Tennekoon

CHRI_BRICKWALL-1

LoftLinks Club Professional

Teaching Professional

In early ‘21, Chris chose to dedicate himself to the game and became a certified teaching professional this summer. For the last several years, he’s been competing in elite-level amateur events at local and national levels.

Chris is a U.S. Kids Golf certified instructor and completed training programs for both TrackMan and Foresight launch monitors.

Committing to practice with purpose is a mindset that Chris adopted as a dual-sport NCAA athlete at Skidmore College, and he believes it is the most valuable lesson his students will learn. For example, Chris uses various creative feedback-based drills that train proper techniques while allowing for individual differences. FullSwing club data is used to assess whether not a player can successfully and repeatedly achieve a newly learned motion in the absence of training aids. The result of Chris’ approach is a reduced learning curve, and increased confidence as players develop ownership of their golf swing.
