Colin FisherPGA TEACHING PROFESSIONAL
Colin, or as some of his students know him as “Fish”, is a 2019 honors graduate of the Coastal Carolina University Professional Golf Management Program. During his time there, he focused on competing for the traveling team which competes with other Golf Management schools around the country. He saw his handicap drop to a +2.5 by his senior year culminating in a win at the 2018 Fall Classic; one of the schools two major championships held each year. Colin graduated Magna Cum Laude in December of 2019.
A native of Baltimore County, he has worked in the golf industry in different capacities and locations since 2015. He has worked at Golf Digest Top 100 Private golf clubs, top rated golf clubs in Maryland, as well as co-directing a junior golf school in Eastchester, New York. Colin interned at 1757 Golf Club starting May of 2019 and instantly fell in love with the place. He noted how being able to learn from some of the best instructors in the country is an invaluable experience.
Colin loves to work with his students on all parts of the game and how we use them to ultimately play better. One of his main points of teaching is more effectively translating practice into play. He enjoys showing students how we have to think a certain way to practice and another way to play. One of the easiest ways to achieve this? Practicing and learning on the real grass ranges helps replicate what you are going to see on the course.
Some of Colin’s favorite golf books include Jim McLean’s, 8-Step Swing, Bob Rotella’s, Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect. He also likes to read Ryan Holiday’s, Ego Is the Enemy and The Obstacle is the W
