Kevin Kretovics attended Golf Academy of America in Orlando. Since graduating, he has become a U.S. Kids Golf Certified Coach and received the "Top 50 Kids’ Teachers Honorable Mention" award. He is also a Swing Catalyst Level 1 Certified Instructor and a Jim McLean Certified Instructor.

Kretovics recently founded Kevics Golf, an instruction company based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that offers golf lessons, junior golf, clinics and camps. He serves as Director of Instruction.

For Kretovics, a combination of technology, teaching, people skills, compassion, sympathy, organization and time management has been the recipe for success. He says his education was also instrumental in moving him forward. "The GAA staff was loaded with years of teaching experience. I was able to spend time learning from each instructor on campus and gain insight into different methods and styles of teaching."

Kretovics says that the support he has received after graduation, from both Golf Academy of America faculty and alumni, has been tremendous. "Now that I own a teaching academy, I've already brought in three more GAA graduates," says Kretovics. "I believe in the program and what you can get from it. If you're passionate and driven to succeed in the industry, GAA is the perfect spot to jump-start your career."

Best part of his job: "Teaching the game to junior golfers is my favorite part of my job. Watching a kid's reaction to making solid contact for the first time is truly inspiring."
