Philippe Fontilea, who provides golf lessons in Los Angeles, California, and San Diego, California, has passed the first Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Golf Instructor Certification course and teaches the safest, most efficient swing possible.
Los Angeles, California | May 30, 2013—Philippe Fontilea became the twentieth instructor to earn full Level 1 RST Golf Certification on May 13, 2013. Fontilea is presently the second instructor who has both gone through RotarySwing.com's golf instructor training program and is listed to teach in California.
Fontilea started teaching golf in 1996 and says that he was "blown away by the RST methodology."
He also brings a broad array of other skills to the table. He's been a life coach, physical therapist, and rock climbing instructor/guide. Those varied knowledge bases pay off when it comes to his teaching style.
"I combine my athletic experience with my comprehensive understanding of human anatomy and mechanics to improve my student’s golf skill," Fontilea said.
"I use my knowledge in athletic activities outside of golf to give each student an education tailor made to fit their needs and learning style. This individual learning experience allows students to gain confidence in their golf swings faster and easier, making the game seem less like work and more like fun."
"I look forward to helping all my students become the most awesome that they want to be in golf."
Fontilea joins fourteen other instructors in the United States and five 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."
