Sean Foley Signs Agreement With Golf & Body NYC

Golf’s hottest instructor makes private indoor facility his only address in New York City

(New York, N.Y.) - The hottest instructor in golf is Sean Foley. And the hottest golf venue in New York is Golf & Body NYC, the private club in midtown Manhattan that offers the ultimate setting for enhancing health and golf performance.

Sean Foley
Reinforcing their premier positions in golf training, the two have signed an agreement that brings Foley’s innovative, scientific and practical instruction methods exclusively to Golf & Body’s membership.

The 40-year old Foley – No. 2 on Golf Digest’s list of America’s Top 50 Teachers and one of Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers - is currently teaching PGA Tour stars Hunter Mahan and Justin Rose, both of whom are scheduled to play this week at the WGC - HSBC Champions tournament in Shanghai. Foley has also worked with a number of the game’s other top players, including Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, and Stephen Ames.

Foley’s unique application of physics, bio-mechanics and philosophical teachings, as well as his incorporation of the latest and best technological tools available, allows him to connect with students in a variety of ways; often turning good golfers into great ones.

GBNYC will be Foley’s only New York indoor practice location. He will make special members-only appearances at the club and maintain regular communication with the staff and the membership.

"I am extremely excited to partner with Golf & Body NYC, a facility that I have admired since its doors first opened," said Foley. "The membership at Golf and Body truly have unparalleled access to all of the resources necessary to become better golfers and also, as importantly, to improve their overall health and well-being. I feel privileged to participate in the growth and development of these individuals as they reach for their personal goals in golf.

“We are thrilled to welcome Sean to Golf & Body NYC,” says Jeannine Harrington, General Manager. “We already have one of the best teaching staffs in the region, and now we’ve added one of the PGA Tour’s top instructors, who knows what it takes to reach the top level of the game. Our members are sure to benefit from his expertise.”

James Leitz
As further evidence of Golf & Body’s commitment to the best and most innovative golf instruction, the club has signed James Leitz to the instruction team. Leitz, a 32 year PGA professional, is one of the world’s leading experts on ball-flight analysis, and the only instructor to be both a Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher and Golf Digest Top 100 club fitter.  James was invited in 2014 to be the featured speaker at the PGA Teaching Summits in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Scotland at St. Andrews, Great Britain, Switzerland, and Australia.  James has also been a featured speaker at M.I.T. three times and the PGA of America Coaching & Teaching Summit twice.

Leitz invented the D-Plane Model and developed methodology for capturing the most detailed information available today about a golfer's swing at impact and ball flight by using 3-D Body Motion Analysis and Trackman Doppler radar. He is an expert in the use of the Trackman Launch Monitor, which he uses at GBNYC both with students and to teach other coaches.  James is sought out by many PGA Tour instructors as a source of technical information.  James has also taught 23 junior state champions in Louisiana since 1982.
