Ross Prachar – Professional Golf Instructor
Ross Prachar has been a PGA Teaching Professional since 2011. Following a 4-year collegiate playing career at New Mexico State University, Ross accepted a teaching position at the Hank Haney International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. In his first two years, Ross was able to teach side by side with his mentor, world-renowned instructor, Hank Haney. Ross learned from Hank the importance of understanding ball flight and identifying and correcting the students’ most critical miss. Ross has taken to Hank and John Jacobs’ beliefs that “golf is what the ball does”. He states that it is not always about getting into a specific position throughout the swing, as much as it is about delivering the club and clubface at impact to produce the desired ball flight. Ross was fortunate enough to instruct and coach the elite training group during his time at IJGA where his students enjoyed successful victories across the country that lead to multiple Division I golf scholarships.
