Denver, CO- GOLFTEC, the world leader in golf improvement and club fitting and one of the leading employers of PGA Professionals in the world, celebrates the PGA Championship by looking back at the founding of the company by a PGA Professional.
For 25 years, GOLFTEC has been driven to help people play better golf. From humble beginnings in the basement of Cherry Hills Country Club, GOLFTEC’s first employee was a PGA Professional named Joe Assell. Today, he is the CEO, and GOLFTEC has grown to over 700+ coaches teaching over 10 million lessons in 6 countries and more than 200 Training Centers. Many of those coaches are themselves PGA Professionals, something Joe credits as driving the company forward.
“The number one ingredient in helping people play better golf are PGA Professionals,” said Joe Assell, CEO and Co-Founder of GOLFTEC. “They are the key to our entire business and the success our Students have enjoyed.”
Recently, Assell was profiled as part of an ongoing series highlighting PGA Professionals and the paths their careers have taken. Talking about how GOLFTEC has made a positive impact on the lives of PGA and LPGA Professionals, he added, “When you see them starting their families, building their first houses, it’s been a great opportunity for a lot of people. As a PGA Member, I get up every day and run a company providing great life and career opportunities for hundreds of other PGA Professionals. It’s the greatest.”
