Dave Bisbee with Sedona Golf Resort joins us for this weeks episode 142 of Breaking Par with Bernard Sheridan. Dave is from Hutchinson Kansas where he first picked up a club at the age of 3 1/2 years old. Dave's Mom played the game and he got the bug early from her. Dave shagged golf balls for Jim Hardy as a boy and that was when he decided to take up golf as a profession. He now works with players of all levels and has been teaching for over 35 years. He gives us his takes as how instruction has changed over the past 20 years and how he still uses the simple tips that he has been using for years. Dave has also written a book with Connie Charles "Back on Course." Back on Course gives an inside look at what the game can reveal and how to use that information to excel in business. Whether you’re a golf enthusiast already or just thinking about taking up the sport, this book puts the power of the sport in your hands. Find the book or contact Dave at the website below.

Breaking Par with Bernard Sheridan Episode 140 Gary Gilchrist Interview

Gary Gilchrist joins us for this weeks interview. Gary works with Lydia Ko and talks about his approach to coaching some of the top players on the LPGA Tour.

Here is a little bit about Gary

Simply put, Gary Gilchrist is synonymous with junior golf. In a coaching career that spans more than 20 years, Gilchrist has been responsible for recruiting, training and developing more top-ranked junior-level golfers than any other coach in the world.

In his illustrious coaching career, Gilchrist has taught more than 75 American Junior Golf Association All-Americans, six AJGA Players of the Year, two U.S. Amateur champions (American David Gossett and Colombia’s Maria Jose Uribe), two U.S. Junior Girls champions (Chile’s Nicole Perrot and Korea’s In-Kyung Kim), one NCAA women’s champion (Thailand’s Virada Nirapathpongporn) and one U.S. Public Links champion (American Michelle Wie).

Gilchrist also teaches many of the game’s best professionals. Gilchrist coaches China’s first fully exempt LPGA Tour player Shanshan Feng and helped Yani Tseng ascend to No. 1 in the world, who when combined together, have won a combined 6 majors since 2010 under Gilchrist’s guidance — Tseng (4) and Feng (2).
