Making the news along the Grand Strand and around the world has been the recent announcement regarding the opening of the Dustin Johnson Golf School at TPC Myrtle Beach. To say this news is turning heads would be an understatement.
The Myrtle Beach area was home for Dustin Johnson during his time at Coastal Carolina University (CCU) and a source of pride for the area. Having watched Johnson play his way to the top of the profession after graduating CCU has positioned him as a hometown hero in the eyes of many.
The complete golf training facility headed by Director of Coaching, Allen Terrell offers a plethora of programs:
- One hour, half day, full day private instruction
- One, Two, & 3 Day Mini Schools
- DJ’s Golf Power Clinics
- Tour experience package-video & trackman analysis, TPI assessment & 6 week customized workouts
- DJ’s Future Stars (kids age 3 & up-equipment provided)
- After School Junior Programs
- TrackMan Launch Monitor Analysis
- V1 Golf computer analysis
- TPI Physical Assessments
- TPI 6 week Customized Golf Workouts
Coach Terrell has expensive experience working with golfers at all levels including his most recent position as head of golf instruction at CCU where he had a personal hand helping to mold the world-class game of Dustin Johnson. Terrell led Coastal to nine Big South Conference championships and four NCAA championship appearances in his 13 seasons, including a fifth-place national finish in 2007 during Johnson’s senior season. Coach Terrell resigned at the end of August this year (2013) to open the Dustin Johnson Golf School.
Having the school located at TPC Myrtle Beach is a natural fit, since that facility was home for the CCU golf team practice / training facility during the time Johnson attended CCU. The practice facility at TPC Myrtle Beach is unmatched in the area. TPC Myrtle Beach is the only course in the area, and one of only three courses in South Carolina to receive the prestigious Golf Digest Places to Play Five Star course rating. The other two are Kiawah Island Resort Ocean Course and Harbour Town Golf Links.
In addition to running the Dustin Johnson Golf School, it has been reported (by Myrtle Beach Online) that Coach Terrell will once again be working with Johnson as his swing coach. It is unclear at this time if Johnson will continue his relationship with the famed Butch Harmon Golf Enterprises.
