Meet Our Coaches

RYAN DAILEY, PGA

ACADEMY DIRECTOR

Ryan finds joy in helping others.  He has dedicated his career to positively influencing the lives of others through the game of golf.  What started out as a personal dream of playing at the highest level has turned into a life spent helping parents and grandparents instill the values of humility, gratitude, delayed gratification and golf skills into their juniors.

 

When he is not coaching students in the Academy at Keith Hills he is working alongside Matt Reagan, PGA in sharing Operation 36 with other dedicated coaches who want to have a positive influence on their students, facility and grow the game of golf.  Operation 36 grew out of a garage in Buies Creek, NC and is now at courses around the world.  Matt and Ryan desire for this to be the standard learning environment at courses everywhere.  They have seen first hand the measurable improvement that players make using Operation 36, the way in which it brings families together at the course through learning the game and they feel every family should have that wonderful opportunity.

 

Players in the Keith Hills Academy have had great success on the course.  The local middle school and high school teams are comprised of mostly juniors who have gone through the Operation 36 program.  One of our very first students, Patrick Stephenson won over 65 junior tournaments, was ranked as high as #2 in the state and is attending East Carolina University on a golf scholarship.   Numerous students have improved by 10, 20, 30 and some over 40 strokes in their time in the Academy.  Please know that if you enroll in the Academy we will not only help them develop into a better golfer but we will also build their character through reinforcing humility, gratitude and delayed gratification.  We believe if we can help develop a better person they will become a better golfer!

SAM GIALLOMBARDO

ACADEMY DIRECTOR

Sam is a third year PGA Golf Management Student at Campbell University since retiring from the Navy in 2014. He teaches using the best technology available in which to measure students and then developing for them an improvement plan that best suits the students improvement based on those measurements.  Why guess when you can measure!

 

3 things which makes him an effective teacher are:

 

1) His past medical expertise while serving as an Independent Duty Hospital Corpsman in the Navy allows him an enhanced understanding of the concepts of body movement and their relationship in the golf swing. This enables him to more effectively communicate ways the student can understand in order to better execute them correctly. He constantly seeks to improve and continues to learn from others.

 

2) Having many mentors along the way has helped guide his thoughts and ideas based on their many years of experience.

 

3) He is able to take what he has learned from his many hours learning, practicing, and giving lessons to students and apply this to improving, not just his own skill set, but by using that experience to improve the skills of his students.

 

For without the dedication of committed students, progress would not be possible.
