When it comes to junior golf, it is easy for kids to be concerned with what their parents think of their performance. Ryan says that if your kid is looking back at you after a shot, then that is a problem, because it indicates that they are anticipating your judgment. To avoid this, instead of focusing on a kid’s performance, parents should make sure that their kids enjoy the car ride home.
In 2022, Ryan took a trip to the United States to help a student through Monday-Qs and to shadow top coaches. As part of that, Ryan shadowed Grand Field, Dana Dahlquist Tony Ruggiero (The Dew Sweeper), Preston Combs, Jeff Smith (Radar Golf Pro), Chris Mayson, Chris Como, Allen Terrell, and James Sieckmann. One of the biggest things that Ryan learned was how each coach gives a lesson and how to incorporate pieces of that into his lessons. Specifically, Ryan said he learned from James Sieckmann that once a player is comfortable with their swing change, it needs to be challenged with different lies and shots so that they focus more on it.
