Sean Foley, considered one of the game’s top teachers, will be the featured instructor at the GCAA and WGCA national conventions. Arguably the hottest name in golf instruction, Foley coaches some of the game's biggest stars, including 2014 Ryder Cup participants Hunter Mahan and Justin Rose.

Foley's core teaching philosophy is driven by a passion to help golfers evolve into the best players and people they can be. He is renowned for his unmatched work ethic and ability to connect with students of all backgrounds - turning good players into great ones. Foley takes a uniquely scientific approach to instruction; incorporating biomechanics, physics, philosophy and geometry into his teachings.

Foley has twice been featured on the cover of Golf Digest, and in 2013 was ranked 2nd on their list of America’s 50 Best Teachers. Additionally, Sean has been named to Golf Digest’s Top-20 Instructors Under Age 40.

Born near Toronto to a Scottish father and Guyanese mother, much of Foley's boyhood was spent living with his family in cultural centers such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver and Toronto. He is a graduate of Tennessee State University, where he played on the golf team, and majored in political science and philosophy.

Sean currently lives in Orlando with his wife, Kate, and sons, Quinn and Kieran.
