John Hughes Golf “Time Flies When You Are Staying Busy and Having Fun”
Wow how time flies at John Hughes Golf when you are having fun! My sincere apologies for not having updated you prior to now. A lot has been going on and a lot more is in the works. Let’s start with what’s in the works and move into what has happened since my last update 3 months ago.
INSTRUCTION VIDEO LIBRARY!
By the end of this month, I will launch an addition to my website, as well as a totally new site, devoted to an instruction video library. Each 90-seconds to 2-minute video will feature a short tip on how you can immediately improve your game no matter what aspect of your golf game you are attempting to improve. Whether it be full swing, short game, strategy, putting, fitness, or any other part of the game, you’ll find something in the video library.
So far, 5 tips are “in the can” ready to launch with another 5 waiting for edits, and another 50+ tips ready to shoot and produce. If you have a particular aspect of your golf game you would like to see within the video library, contact me with your idea and I will be sure to include your idea within the video library.
Keep checking your Inbox for the announcement about the launch of the video library and how you can have full access to the ever growing content contained within it.

Our May Update Catches You Up from January
Here is a brief summary of what has happened since my last John Hughes Golf update.
The PGA Show was another great week of golf, fellowship, networking, and fun. I was able to see all of the show floor this year, something I do not normally get to do. There was a genuine enthusiasm for the game as a whole on the show floor, with technology continuing as the buzz word for new and innovative ways to learn, improve, and enjoy golf more. One of the takeaways from this year’s show was Arccos, which I will feature in an upcoming blog post.
February was a pivotal month as it began the golf season in full force, providing me the opportunity to teach a lot of great people I have assist in the past as well as a few new clients. February also brought me together with VIP Golf Academy, the longest running 1:1 golf school in the country. Since February, I have taught clients of VIP at Falcon’s Fire Golf Club here in the Orlando Area as well as in Port St. Lucie at The Legacy Golf & Tennis Club, a well operated private golf facility that has a fantastic practice facility. If you are looking for a place to hang your hat and get some golf experiences in next winter, Port St. Lucie is a place we can meet. We can enjoy the South Florida weather, the terrific facility at the Legacy Club, and share some great times both on and off the course.
March was a hectic month full of lessons and golf schools as well as a few unique experiences and opportunities I will definitely remember. I attended the Valspar Championship at the famous Copperhead Course of Innisbrook Resort, being part of the staff that operated the Fidelity Investments Swing Lab Booth. Long hours and lots of people added up to a fun filled weekend and a lot of video lessons to do afterwards.
March also presented the opportunity to walk 18-holes with the World’s #1 Ranked Golfer, Rory McIlroy, as well as Erik Compton as they made their way around Bay Hill Club and Lodge for the Arnold Palmer Invitational. If you have not already read about my experience with both Rory and Erik, be sure to check out my post, Walking with the Best – Rory McIlroy and Erik Compton.
Finally, March was birthday month for me, my wife, and a lot of other friends and family. Between The North Florida PGA Gala, visits by family, invitations to our close friend’s “Soirees,” visits from our friends who spend the winters in Florida, and seeing great concerts each weekend at Epcot, I had plenty of opportunities to celebrate another year. Thanks to all of you for a great month of March!
April brought another busy month of golf lessons, golf schools, and a visit from my son and my brother. We crammed a lot golf and a lot of fun into 48-hours but had a great time doing so. Thanks Jim for coming to visit! You’re welcome anytime. Jack was here for 10 days. We played a lot of golf, baseball, and visited the PGA Museum of Golf in Port St. Lucie, where he got to see a lot of special items on display as well as his Dad’s name on a couple of plaques. If you ever get to go visit the PGA Museum, you should. It will take about 2 hours to fully view the exhibits.
April was also a chance to continue my education through the North Florida PGA’s NFPGA University. Most interesting during those two days was the presentation by my good friend, Dr. Bob Winters as well we Dr. Robert Wharen and Dr. Chuck Adler from the Mayo Clinic about the “Yips.” I’ll share some of this information within future blog posts.
And lastly, thank you John Brown of WOFL Fox 35 for the opportunity to speak on behalf of the entire Central Florida Golf Industry and let everyone know that despite what you may read in newspapers or see on TV, the golf industry is holding its own and making great strides to grow and evolve with the times. Don’t believe what the dramatists tell you on the cable outlets or the 6 or 11PM news. Check out the interview for yourself by visiting my current Video Page of my website.
I feel I only covered about 20% of what happened the few months. Thanks to all of you who continue to follow me through social media and through email! PLEASE share my emails with your friends and family who have the slightest interest in golf, as well as share my Tweets and Facebook Posts I routinely post each week.
And as always, please let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you in the future!
