More about Kerrod

Teaching Philosophy
“I strive to ignite enthusiasm and excitement in all my students while helping them have more fun, improve their game, and maximise their potential. I use a holistic approach to coaching and in addition to using a combination of science and technology to create consistent, technically sound swings, I place a large emphasis on improving and building skills in all areas.”

– Kerrod Gray

One of Australia’s leading golf instructors, Kerrod is an industry awarded PGA Professional and the spearhead of a new generation of golf coaches.

In a sport which is being driven by science and technology, there’s always the need for those who can understand the information in its complexity in order to break it down and explain it in its simplicity.

Fueled by passion and his inquisitive nature, Kerrod is a student of the game; constantly researching and learning from others from whom he can learn. This desire for furthering his knowledge has led him to gain world recognised certifications and travel the globe shadowing some of the top teachers in the game.

Kerrod has competed at the highest level, representing Australia as a junior and winning tournaments across all levels. He still plays in tournaments however his focus and passion is coaching. He works hard to stay abreast of the latest golf technology and information so that he as a coach can guide players to be the best that they can be by improving their game in a holistic fashion.

In recent times Kerrod was a finalist for the 2018 Australian PGA Game Development Teacher of the Year, was named the 2017 WA PGA Game Development Teacher of the Year, the 2016 West Australian PGA Professional of the Year,  and worked internationally as the Assistant Director of Nike Junior Golf Camps in Pebble Beach, California.
