We wish you all the best Craig

I am really sad to announce that Craig Trahan is leaving the Rob Noel Golf Academy family. Craig and I have had a relationship since he was 8 years old. I’ve watched him grow, not only in golf but into a fine young man. When the time arose for me to expand my business 6 years ago, Craig and I partnered together to open Big Easy Golf Academy.

At Big Easy, Craig was instrumental in developing and creating top notch golfers in the New Orleans area. I know Craig will be missed by all of his students. Craig, I thank you for your commitment and dedication to the Rob Noel Golf Academy all these years. I wish you and your family all the best on your new journey. I am always here if you ever need me. All of us at the Rob Noel Golf Academy will miss you very much!

All the best,

Here's a letter of farewell from Craig

"For the last seven years it has brought me much pride to say I am a part of the Rob Noel Golf Academy, the face of golf in Louisiana. Six years ago when Rob Noel and I embarked upon opening Big Easy Golf Academy, it was for one reason, to bring the finest golf instruction to the New Orleans area. I can truly say it has been a remarkable journey. The countless number of relationships that have been created through golf fills my heart. The golfers that have been developed and polished to championship form are enormous. I believe we have helped shape the landscape of golf in the area. The next step in my journey will bring me to Denton Country Club in Argyle, Texas as I have proudly accepted a position as Director of Instruction. My family and I will be making the move to that area in late March. Over the past 14 years as a PGA Professional, the most important thing I have learned from the countless hours on the lesson tee is that I teach golf because I love connecting with people. I know that I do not teach golf; rather I teach people how to play golf.

I want to take this moment to thank every student that has come to take a lesson or joined the junior program over the last seven years. I have attacked every lesson with passion and excitement. Those attributes are what I look for in a great coach - someone that is knowledgeable, caring, passionate and accountable. I hope I have met or exceeded your expectations as though I have given my all to everyone that has supported me.

To Rob Noel, my coach, my mentor and my friend, I will miss you. I have tried every day to represent your golf academy with professionalism and dignity. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your team and I will truly miss you. To my beautiful wife and mother thank you for your support and love; without it I could never be the teacher I am today."

In closing

“People with passion can change the world for the better. The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Steve Jobs

Testimonial Tuesday

"I really had a great overall experience. I have had a few lessons in the past from other teachers, but I left most of those more confused than before I arrived. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me understand the faults and characteristics in my “natural” swing even though you knew we needed to move it in a different direction in order to improve. I felt that you wanted me to understand the process even more than you wanted me to enact it. I feel this first lesson was about getting me to believe in the process and establishing the basics. I feel very comfortable after leaving this lesson. Very happy, determined and optimistic about what is yet to come." ~ Joshua Book

The Par 3 Advantage

Tee up the ball
It's an advantage to be able to tee up the ball, even if you’re using an iron. It’s the opportunity to create the perfect lie, but this is what we see too often.
 This ball is teed up too high for an iron shot. This risks the ball hitting high on the face of an iron. There’s a real loss of distance above the sweet spot on an iron.
Below is a perfect example. The ball appears to be resting on the top of the blades of grass. Don’t try and play the ball on the up. It’s an approach shot from a perfect lie.
Find time to practice and make sure you’re playing the shot with the correct technique. Build your confidence.
Make Par 3 improvement a priority
Good technique and some practice breeds confidence. Good technique, practice, and confidence lower your scores. It also thrills you with better approach shots. We can help.
