The Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf at the Orlando World Center Marriott’s Hawks Landing Golf Club is pleased to announce the addition of Matt Clinger to its professional staff of instructors. The Academy provides instruction for players of all abilities and ages.
Matt brings nine years of golf instruction to the Academy. In Matt’s first year as an instructor he was named to the US Kids Top 50 Instructors list and has created multiple junior coaching programs at facilities in Atlanta and Kansas City.
Clinger is one of just 54 Certified Master Fitters for Callaway Golf and has spent many years as a club fitter for them as well as Taylor Made, Mizuno, Wilson, Srixon, Cleveland, Cobra, Nike, Miura, Edel and others. While in Kansas City, Matt coached the Avila University Men and Women’s golf teams. Matt loves working with students of all ages and has excelled at taking junior golfers to the next level and helping them reach their goals quickly and efficiently. Many of Matt’s students play for Divisions 1 and 2 college teams, and many have gone on to play in events on the Web.com, Canadian, Symetra and LPGA Tours.
According to Brian O’Neil, Director of Instruction at the Nicklaus Academy in Orlando, “Matt brings a passion to teaching and coaching that is unparalleled. His results with juniors speaks volumes about his ability to communicate and inspire. Combine his instructional talents along with his club fitting resume which makes Matt a great addition to our staff.”
“The opportunity to join the Nicklaus Academy at Hawk’s Landing was too good to pass up,” stated Matt. “To represent Mr. Nicklaus at his Academy in Orlando is a dream come true. The Nicklaus philosophy matches perfectly with how I feel the game should be taught. And to have access to all of the latest technologies in the Nicklaus Coaching Studio is incredible. I anticipate having even greater results with all of my students now that I am here.”
Matt also coaches the Windermere High School Golf Team which won its Region tournament and has advanced to the State competition in Florida.
