Ryan comes to TOUR Performance Academy with an extensive playing background. Having been a top amateur golfer, he signed to The University of South Florida where the team was consistently ranked within the top 25 of Division 1 men’s teams.
Ryan started playing golf at the age of three after being introduced by his father. By the age of 7 he had already shot par in a golf tournament, and would go on to travel North America playing the highest level of junior golf. Having gone to an academy in Florida that was headed by Sean Foley he knows first hand the benefit of academy style coaching can bring to juniors looking to play to their highest potential, along with adults looking to do the same.
After college Ryan played on the professional golf circuit amassing multiple wins, the most recent being on the Toronto Players Tour in 2021. Having spent the full season playing on PGA Tour Canada in 2021 he gained valuable insight into what it takes to play at the highest level. Along the way he has always been fascinated with the swing and technique aspect of the game which led him to work with coaches such as Sean Foley, Scott Cowx, and Jeff Pierce. Being able to learn from the brightest minds has tailored his approach to teaching the game himself. When he’s away from the game, Ryan enjoys the sun, other sports and hanging out with his dog.
