Fore Door Golf brings year-round indoor training facility to Manchester, New Hampshire

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Accomplished teaching professional Jason Sedan, recently named to Golf Digest's list of the 100 "Best Young Teachers in America" for 2016-'17, is teaming with swing coach and New Hampshire native Patrick Gocklin to launch a new Golf Channel Academy location at the Executive Health & Sports Center (EHSC) in Manchester, N.H.

A grand opening ceremony with a complimentary open house will take place on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2-6 p.m. EST.

Sedan is the founder and coaching director of Fore Door Golf, with existing academy locations in New Hampshire (Lake Winnipesaukee Golf Club, New Durham) and Florida. He is one of the inaugural coaches in Golf Channel Academy (GCA), a dedicated network of teaching facilities and top coaches. Sedan recently made his second guest instructor appearance on Golf Channel's Morning Drive.

"I'm excited to deliver a premier venue for golfers of all abilities to work on their games year round," said Sedan, a PGA Certified Professional with more than 15 years teaching experience. "With our technology we can measure so many things and provide highly accurate prescriptions for each player. We are equipped like never before to deliver the Fore Door Golf difference to New England golfers."

Sedan has enlisted the services of Gocklin to deliver robust and unique coaching programs at EHSC. Gocklin, a prominent junior coach in New England, has seen several of his students rise to the ranks of the most elite Division I collegiate programs in the country while maintaining a love for the process.

"What we can measure, we can improve," said Gocklin, a graduate of Florida Southern College who helped lead the Mocs to the 2010 NCAA Division II National Championship. "The opportunity to join Golf Channel Academy is not only an honor but also brings unprecedented benchmarking and communication platforms to our students. The number of golfers we are now equipped to help reach their goals is really exciting."
