Sean W. Saunders is the owner of SWS Golf Academy. He has been a PGA pro since 2009 when golf performance (TPI Model) started really becoming the norm on the PGA Tour. Sean understood the importance of staying up to date on the latest information so he decided to specialize in golf performance because he was tired of seeing too many of his past clients not reach their potential. He knew it was not just their golf swing but their lack of skills and body compensations that were the source of their problems. Sean decided to take the next step and get ACE (American Council on Exercise) and TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) Level 3 Fitness Professional, and BodiTrak certification. He currently is the only PGA professional in SW Missouri who has these advanced certifications. Sean understands the body & swing connection and can provide the necessary tools to help golfers who are serious about reaching their potential, especially those who are reaching their golden years and feeling the effects of age on their golf swing and game.

CHAD MCCOY, U.S. Kids Golf Certified Coach
Chad has an unrivaled passion for the game of golf, and helping others reach their goals. What he enjoys most is helping juniors and recreational golfers get the most enjoyment they can out of the game, by improving their knowledge and skill. He can show players how to set goals for success and give them the information and guidance they need to reach those goals. As a former D.A.R.E. officer, and youth basketball coach Chad has extensive experience and training in working with children and teens. Chad has personal experience in what is required to make serious improvements in your game, as he did not attempt to make golf his profession until later in life. He was able to set goals for himself and take his game to levels he never before thought possible, and gets great satisfaction out of showing others how they can do the same regardless of if his clients are just picking up the game or have been playing for years.
