Ross Prachar

Arriving at the Golf Club of Houston in the spring of 2015, Ross Prachar has been a PGA Teaching Professional since 2011. Following a 4-year collegiate playing career at New Mexico State University, Ross began teaching at the Hank Haney International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina in 2011. In his first two years, Ross was able to teach side by side with world-renowned instructor, Hank Haney. Ross learned from Hank the importance of understanding ball flight and identifying and correcting the students most critical miss. Ross has taken to Hank and John Jacobs beliefs that golf is what the ball does. He states that his belief is “the golf swing is not about getting into a specific position in the swing, as much as it is delivering the club and clubface at impact to produce the desired ball flight.” Ross was fortunate enough to instruct and coach the elite training group during his time at IJGA where his students enjoyed successful victories across the country that lead to several Division I golf scholarships.

Ross has taken his collegiate playing background and his time at the IJGA to help him establish a blueprint for competitive golfers seeking to advance their game to the next level. Ross’ skill set, along with the world class practice facility at the Golf Club of Houston has allowed him to continue to help develop players of all skill levels throughout the past 5 years in Houston. He emphasizes the importance of being honest in where the player currently is, and what plan can be put together to reach their desired goals.

Ross’ students have competed in events on the PGA TOUR, Korn Ferry Tour, LPGA TOUR and Symetra Tour as well as the U.S. Open, U.S. Amateur, US Women’s Amateur, U.S. Jr. Amateur, U.S. Girls Jr. Amateur, Men’s and Women’s North and South Amateur and Jr Amateur, Callaway Jr. Worlds, multiple Division 1 regional and national collegiate events, and countless AJGA and IJGT events throughout the country. Ross admits his greatest satisfaction thus far has been seeing his students achieve collegiate golf scholarships and excel as NCAA student athletes.
