Tathata Golf student Aden Ye of Lake Mary, Florida, came within a single stroke of tying the AJGA’s 54-hole scoring record during his wire-to-wire 11 shot victory at the Foley Performance Academy @ EaglesDream Junior Championship. Ye finished with a three-day total of 18-under-par 198, one behind Jeremy Frye’s record of 19-under-par 194 at the 2002 Action Zone / Bob Estes Abilene Junior (AJGA.org). This is Ye’s second career AJGA victory and he is verbally committed to the University of Florida as a high school junior.
Ye’s coach, Holton Freeman, teaches at the Foley Performance Academy at EaglesDream and is a Tathata Golf Certified Movement Specialist in training. Beginning the program just two months ago, he has already introduced Ye and several other students to early parts of the Tathata Golf 60-Day Program. “As a teacher, I like the structure of the program and the new form of training that can be done in a group setting with my students,” said Freeman. “I’m excited about the benefits I have already seen from implementing Tathata Golf principles and the growth ahead for myself and my students as I continue working through the rest of the program and become certified.”
Bryan Hepler, founder of Tathata Golf was elated when hearing the story about an instructor and student coming together through the 60-Day Program and almost setting an AJGA scoring record winning a golf tournament. “We are honored to have an instructor and student going through our programs and experiencing such great success,” said Bryan Hepler, founder of Tathata Golf. “Not that we had a lot to do with Aden’s recent performance but it is extremely gratifying to have players and teachers at their level open to hearing the truths that are waiting for them in our programs. We are incredibly happy about whatever we can add to their already well established greatness.”
The Tathata Golf 60-Day Program is an in-home, follow-along, golf-training program. The program introduces extremely detailed, yet easy to perform movements and movement routines to help people of all ages, body types and ability levels excel at golf over a short period of time. Movements of the greatest golfers and athletes of all-time and 2,500 years of martial-art movement and striking truths support all of the program’s learning and movements. They come together to also represent the safest, most efficient way to swing a golf club and stay injury free. Daily martial art mental training discussions and exercises come alongside the movement training to round out the total mind, body and swing essence of the program.
Backed by some of the industries most recognizable and well-respected individuals and organizations, the program is softly reshaping the way golf is taught, learned and played for generations to come. As Hepler said “We are just starting to see the impact the program can have on the industry as a whole. Through better golf, the game and industry can flourish, helping to benefit everyone involved.”
