College Golf Recruitment – Luca Gómez (Spain) – FALL 2018
As a player, what surprised me the most at first was his physical condition. I work for TPI as an advisory board member and the first time I read about his physical condition it surprised me because it was very good. He is very much an athlete in this sense, and has a great swing. I like him a lot because he is very methodical, completely methodical. When we have to work I come up with a worksheet on what we need to focus on and how I want him to work the days that we don’t see each other. And always in the next class, I can see that he has done the homework, that he is thinking, and is always asking questions. What we do is plan month to month, and decide when we are going to work on putting, when will we work on chipping, when will we go to the golf course, how are we going to work on each aspect of the game o that we can organize it well based on statistical analysis as we see what is working and what is not working to help us better design the next month. His progress has happened very fast and has only needed to change some minor things like his swing, connection, his hands-arms-body; truly I am very pleased with his development. For me, Spain’s most distinctive characteristics for its players are, above all, their creativity and imagination as they play.
