“Fun over Form”
Because there are numerous facets to teaching, I choose to keep my teachings fun and interesting and by effectively listening to the student and distinguish which drills work best to suit their skills and work from there.
I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach both juniors and adults with different challenges. To me, a disability is just a different ability. If we start there and focus on what our students can do, we can figure out a way for our students to have fun. The ball does not know if you have one arm, one leg, sit in a wheelchair, or can even see the ball at all. I try to put myself in that students’ position beforehand and hit with one hand or sitting in a chair or with my eyes shut. Remember form does not matter, fun does. With this innovative teaching attitude, you will open up a whole new market for growing the game of golf.
“I have worked with Perry Green as a golf teaching assistant and I have been one of his students. This puts me in a rather unique position to address his qualities as both a teacher and a leader. Perry is a very kind and patient teacher. He has a very fun-loving nature that is infectious. If you are struggling with your game, Perry can help you enjoy golf once again. Empathetic and forward-thinking golf leaders like Perry are hard to find. He has had tremendous success with ‘difficult cases,’ which shows us how amazing Perry’s approach really is. I am very grateful to Perry for his help and for his inspiring vision.”

Bo Turocy, Head Golf Professional at Wescott Golf Club.
Bo has been a member of the PGA of America since 2000 and has been teaching golf to beginners, seasoned players, women, juniors, and men since 1997.
Early in his career, he studied under Sea Pines instructors and Carolinas PGA Section legends, Rick Barry and Skip Malek, Director of Instruction at Sea Pines Resort. Later, Bo has learned from Mike Malaska the full swing and Stan Utley and James Siekmann with short game theories.
However, Bo has found his greatest successes by studying the writings of classic instructors such as (but not limited to) Alex Morrison, Tommy Armour, Ernest Jones, Bobby Jones, and Stewart Maiden and applying their knowledge to today’s golfer. His premise to looking into the history to better the student’s golfing future is simple: everyone is unique in physical abilities, however, the modern golf swing utilized by the professionals on tour needs a minimum amount of strength, flexibility, and speeds that not everyone can achieve. The principles of the golfing past are much readily attainable by the average player.
Bo not only teaches these classic principles; he also uses them himself. As a player, Bo has finished in the top 10 in the field on several occasions in the World Hickory Championship (Scotland) and the United States Hickory Open, as well as in numerous regional hickory championships. Bo also represented the United States on a 16-player team in the Lionel Freedman Matches, an international Ryder Cup-styled event for hickory golfers, played in Milan, Italy in 2018.
When it comes to teaching children, Bo firmly believes that fun should be the foremost of priorities. Once the game lacks fun, children will lose interest and focus. “When it’s fun, it is easier to teach the FUNdamentals.”

“Introducing the game of golf”
Because of the explosion in the game of golf, I strive to teach newer players to enjoy the game while learning proper etiquette. I keep lessons fun and basic and don’t overload students with too much information at one time. I also provide on-course lessons to give a “real feel” of the game as they improve. Golf is a difficult game, so I strive to keep it fun and light as my students progress. My goal is to grow the game of golf through each lesson.
