Chicago, Illinois | December 2, 2013—Tim Overman became the twenty-fifth instructor to earn full Level 1 RST Golf Certification on November 11, 2013. Overman is presently the first instructor who has gone through RotarySwing.com's golf instructor training program and is listed to teach in Chicago.
“I have worked in various areas of the golf industry for over 15 years now. I started out working for Mizuno Golf as a PGA, tour-trained fitting specialist where I had the opportunity and privilege to see how tour players trained and mastered their craft. I am currently the Owner and Director of Fitting and Instruction at Golf in Motion, a certified SPI putting instructor for Seemore Putters and the inventor of Putt Path,” said Overman.
“RST is the most complete and comprehensive learning system I have encountered. Finally, a learning system that gives you the "why" behind golf instruction. Combining RST, my background in biomechanics and kinesthetic learning, my goal is to create a science-based teaching style that has become the solid foundation of fundamentals that I teach to my students,” said Overman.
Overman joins eighteen other instructors in the United States and seven more internationally who have been certified in the three years since the program's inception. The speed at which Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Certification is spreading across the globe is not surprising to the company's founder, Chuck Quinton.
"The bulk of our business originates from our strong web presence at RotarySwing.com, which doesn't limit us to any geographic region," said Quinton. "Combine that with an online golf instructor certification process for our level one training that meets instructors' needs for affordability and convenience, and I expect to see RST Certified Instructors everywhere golf is played."
Quinton indicated that the golf instructor training program has received significant interest since it launched in February 2010 and is excited about the opportunities ahead for his business as well as for the RST Certified Instructors.
"The RST golf instructor certification promises to be a great vehicle for growth, not just for RotarySwing.com, but also for instructors teaching our methods," said Quinton. "The mutually beneficial nature of our certification program promises to drive its success."
In addition to providing objective, scientific facts about golf instruction and the swing to improve golf coaching techniques, Rotary Swing Golf offers Certified Instructors promotional benefits to boost their revenues. These golf instructors realize significant visibility through listings on the heavily trafficked RotarySwing.com, inclusion in weekly email newsletters to thousands of golfers, and postings on social media like Facebook and RotarySwing.com's Golf Forum and Golf Lessons Blog.
"Not many golf instructors have websites that pull in thousands of visitors each day," Quinton said. "We can help them get their names out to potential students without spending a boatload on web design, search engine optimization, and online advertising."
Ultimately, though, an instructor's success comes down to the quality of golf instruction provided, and Quinton went to great lengths to ensure only the most knowledgeable golf instructors will earn certification.
According to the RST Golf Instructor Certification Level 1 page on RotarySwing.com, "The information that must be learned just to pass Level 1 requires on average 100 hours of study on swing mechanics, physics, anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and more." The website indicates that these fields represent "many disciplines typical golf instructor training neglects."
