Graduate of Golf Academy of America in Phoenix
Master Club Fitting & Specialist
Current Employer: Talking Stick Golf Club in Scottsdale, AZ
Kris McCormack says that his ability to advance in the golf field has come from three core skills: communication, networking and being able to ask for the close. Follow up and requesting referrals also plays a role in his success.
McCormack is the Master Club Fitting Specialist at Talking Stick Golf Club, which is comprised of two acclaimed public courses in Scottsdale, Ariz. In addition to his education from Golf Academy of America in Phoenix, he holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Management from the University of Missouri—Saint Louis. He credits Golf Academy of America for helping him identify his passion for teaching and club fitting.
He advises current students to make their time at Golf Academy of America count. “You can absolutely do the minimum and coast through with a degree,” says McCormack. “However, it will cost the same amount of time and money if you push yourself to go after all the information you can during your time there.”

Best part of his job: “My favorite part of what I do is traveling to various high-end clubs and conducting fitting events for their membership. It is always a great experience to dramatically improve a player’s game by simply getting the correct equipment in their hands.”
