Blake Stark has been competing in golf for over 20 years as both an amateur and as professional. During this time Blake created a proven track record of success, having played in both the U.S Junior and U.S Amateur, earning a collegiate victory, as well playing for the division 1 school University of Charlotte golf team. During his time in Charlotte the team became the #1 ranked national golf team, and competed in the NCAAs’ all four years while Blake Attended.
Blake has always had a passion for coaching, and the human body. Having had the opportunity to work with numerous PGA tour coaches, as well as been trained by some of the leading fitness experts on golf, and treated by some of the countries leading physical therapist (Blake has had multiple surgeries so he can relate easily to how injury and pain can affect ones golf) has allowed Blake to have a unique set of knowledge when it comes to coaching.
Blake strongly believes in a holistic approach to teaching and that there is no one way to swing a golf club. His core philosophies to teaching is to build a golf swing around what the players body physically can do, help the player understand their tendencies, learn how to play golf not golf swing, and how to get the most out of their performance.
JT Tackett has worked in the golf business for over 20 years and has spent more than half of that time teaching and club fitting. As Director of Instruction for Club Corp. @ Bentwater, he assisted in the opening of the 1st Nike Golf fitting center in the United States back in 2012 and was certified in their NG360 Functional Performance system allowing him to understand, in depth, how the body biomechanically works in the golf swing. This provides a great benefit to his students, since this allows Justin to identify if his students can make the swing changes that are necessary or if a physical limitation might be the reason why they can’t swing the club how he would like.
He credits his teaching philosophy to his mentor, friend, and Hall of Fame Teaching Professional, Manuel de la Torre, who was a leading proponent of Ernest Jones’ club focused approach to learning the golf swing. Justin has learned these concepts and application of them through study, observation, and personal conversations with Manuel de la Torre for close to a decade.
Justin has guided many junior students from Pee Wee through HS and into college. Justin cares deeply about his student’s success not only for the short term but also for the long term. Justin provides a unique coaching experience with his extensive knowledge in club fitting, the biomechanics of the body, and how to score on the golf course. This benefits his clients in such a way that allows him to identify where the problem is coming from quickly: whether from the club, the golfer, or if the golfer doesn’t know or understand their game leading to poor decisions on the golf course resulting in higher scores and a frustrated golfer.
Justin is extremely excited about his future at Georgia Golf Performance! Helping people reach their performance goals through his passions of club fitting and coaching.
Justin is available if you need help with your game, club fitting, or just have a question. Give him a call at 706-536-5869.
