About: I grew up in Colorado and fell in love with the game of golf at the age of 12. My first job in golf was at City Park 9 working for Jim Greer and I began to hone my skills. When I was 15 I worked at the Fort Collins CC for Ray Bostich and by the age of 17 I was a 2 handicapper. After graduating from Poudre High School I attended CSU and played on the varsity Golf Team.
After my College golfing days were over I decided to turn Pro and moved to California. I was elected to the PGA of America Class A in 1997 and have been a Golf Professional for the past 27 years. In that time, I have been an Assistant Golf Professional at some of the most prestigious golf courses in Southern CA. I have also been the Head Golf Professional and managed all the day to day operations at 4 of the nicest courses in Southern and Northern CA. In that time, I have hosted many prestigious golf tournaments such as the Northern CA Open, the NCPGA – Assistants Championship, the Sevillano Links Pro-Am, the PWGA Women’s Championship, the Northern CA Girl Scouts Charity Tournament along with 60 high profile Tournaments every year. Additionally, I have taught over 8,000 golf lessons to Students of all abilities and skill levels. I have taught fellow Golf Professionals, Scratch Amateurs, accomplished golfers, beginners, Women and over 400 Juniors the game of golf.

Name: Derek Cordova
About: Derek has been teaching golf in Northern Colorado market since 1990. He was elected to the PGA membership in 1992 and recognized as a Certified PGA Professional in 2008 in four areas of expertise. These certificates include; Instruction, Golf Operations, General Management, and Executive Management. Derek has had the opportunity to attend numerous PGA instruction seminars and has learned and applied valuable swing concepts from some of golf’s most recognized names in golf including Hank Haney, Dick Harmon, Charlie Epps, Laird Small, Mike McGetrick, Dr. Bob Rotella, Manuel de la Torre and many others. In 2011, Derek embraced a new paradigm in golf instruction and is convinced that a golfer must not only understand swing fundamentals but bio-mechanics as well. His philosophy was adopted from the Titleist Performance Institute and simply states:“We don’t believe there is one way to swing a club. We believe there are an infinite number of ways to swing a club. However, we do believe there is one efficient way for all golfers to swing a club & it is based on what they can physically do.”Derek was the first professional in Northern Colorado to open a State of the Art indoor learning and performance center using the latest technology in the industry. Golf Dynamics currently uses the V1 software platform, K-Vest 3D wireless technology, and new for 2012 V1 Branded Academy where students can access recorded video of their swings 24/7 from their computers and smart phones.•PGA Apprentice 1988-1992
