Since graduating Golf Academy of America in Orlando Kevin Kretovics 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.

In 2015, Kretovics 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 staff was great at passing on real-world experience,” Kretovics says. “In my golf career, I've used something from every course taken at GAA. It gave me the starting points needed in different areas which helped guide me to a passion for teaching.”

He advises current Golf Academy of America students build a network with the staff and other students. “Pay attention and do the work while at GAA,” he says. “The habits you build there will determine your habits and success after graduation.”
