Co-Founders Matt Reagan PGA and Ryan Dailey PGA have made Operation 36 well known because of their very different approach to teaching beginner golfers. Traditional wisdom says new players should get private golf lessons and stay on the practice range until they are good enough to get on the course.
Operation 36 takes the traditional model and flips it on its head. All new players begin on the course. Instead of starting at the tee box, they play from 25 yards away from the hole. Once the player shoots par (36) from 25 yards, they back up to 50 yards, and so on, until they are shooting even par (36) from the full tee box. It’s timely, it’s fun, and it provides step by step improvement.
This golf program was initially seen as only a Junior Program has caught fire as the standard for introducing any beginner to the game, including adults. It is now taught by nearly 700 coaches across the world at over 450 facilities with over 28,000 golfers.
