The podcast can be heard on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play and iHeartRadio.
“As the most trusted resource for junior golfers in terms of development and achieving goals, we feel this was a very important topic to cover,” said Knick. “The health crisis is a difficult time for all of them, especially high school seniors, and we want to ensure that they have as many options and as much knowledge and insight as they can use.”
In addition to his role with the JGH, Dowling is a competitive golfer and coach. He was a four-year member and two-time captain of the Fairfield University (Conn.) Men’s Division-I Golf Team. He was an assistant coach for the Men’s and women’s teams in 2016 and is the current 2017 Connecticut State Amateur Golf Champion.

He is a Sports Performance Specialist, having spent over 20 years developing and refining his knowledge and practical application of coaching. He is a Class-A PGA Professional, TPI Level III and K-Motion Biomechanics certified instructor.
Knick has worked with aspiring high school and collegiate athletes, as well as PGA, LPGA, NHL, MLB, NBA and NFL players. His ability to coach many different levels is due to his diverse background in sports and the understanding that “function dictates form.” As a former division one athlete and professional athlete, he has a deep understanding of his clients’ goals, objectives and how to work with them to make it happen.
