Tour Express – a program designed to train high-level athletes to qualify for the professional tours – has launched at Boca Lago Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla.
Leading Tour Express is David Lee, regarded as one of the more forward-thinking instructors in the game. Lee created Gravity Golf, an instructional program that relies on a golfer’s body mass, rather than muscular strength, to create an effortless swing that produces maximum efficiency and control. Gravity Golf Schools have been based at Boca Lago Country Club since this past Fall.
Using his Gravity Golf method, Lee and his instructors will prepare recent college graduates – all high-level, Division I athletes but, critically, not golfers – to be competitive and have professional golf careers. According to Lee, it normally takes five to 10 years to turn a beginner into a professional; Tour Express will do it in one year.
The first four athletes recently began working with Lee and his staff, living and training at Boca Lago Country Club.
Other Gravity Golf programs are open to the general public, where interested golfers can attend half-day informational seminars at Boca Lago, observe the Tour Express players, and learn more about how to accelerate the golf development process through the Gravity Golf philosophy, which focuses on all parts of the game – full swing, short game, and what causes and fixes the “yips” in putting, chipping, and pitching.
Gravity Golf School programs are also available at Boca Lago for any aspiring golfers, as well as individualized instruction for Boca Lago members.
Boca Lago Country Club recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation. Award-winning architect Jan Bel Jan re-imagined the original Bruce Devlin-Robert Von Hagge 27-hole golf course. Extensive work also was done on the practice facilities, clubhouse, and 20-court tennis club.
