Originally from Rockland County, New York, Peter began his career in golf playing competitive events as a junior in Metropolitan, NY. He attended Methodist University in North Carolina graduating with a degree in Business and Professional Golf Management (PGA-PGM). Peter played college golf on the golf team at Methodist University which has won 11 National Championships. He further educated himself by assembling a golf education library, taking lessons and schools with the worlds greatest golf instructors, and travelling the country competing and playing under all conditions. Peter’s career lead him to a position as the youngest Senior instructor at one of the top 3 golf schools in the world for 15 years.
Peter then began to incorporate his methods and philosophies into attainable defined strategies that work for players of all levels and under pressure. His defined focus is to attack the portions of the game that statistically lead to the greatest handicap reduction. His teaching developments include a process to statistically monitor and quantify student improvement to assure long term success.
Launching Peter Sokolov Golf forward is the experience that he has having trained PGA, LPGA, Champions Tour, APGA, JLPGA, and AJGA players who have all won on their respective tours. Peter has talent instructing corporate events for several large Fortune 500 companies around the world and giving exhibitions at several professional tour events.
His main desire is to bring that same world-class instruction to players of all ages and abilities. Not all players are going to qualify to play PGA Tour. However if it's your goal to break 90, 80, or 70, Peter's concepts, strategies and philosophy are specifically designed to help improve anyone that loves this great game.
Peter's underlying focus is based on a strong belief that the majority of golf instruction is not designed to "take it to the course". Typical golf lessons leave the player with a disconnection between improvement on the range and seeing their scoring average drop. He maintains that all golf instruction should have an on course component attached. Management and mental games are significant and cannot be adequately improved solely on a driving range or practice green.
Even though Peter's focus is now on coaching rather than competing he maintains a scoring average in the low 70's. His career low round is a 65 in tournament play. He loves to play alongside his students demonstrating what he coaches and enjoys competing whenever possible. He believes being a great coach and a great player is an asset that helps students learn faster. It further demonstrates his philosophy of a game that maximizes a players athletic ability and talents without over complicating and cluttering his students minds.
Peter is always working towards furthering his students improvement potential. Currently he is hard at work developing a system to monitor student improvement to further their success after coaching sessions. He is also developing a video series demonstrating some of the strategies he utilizes to lower a players scores. He has a strong desire to bring innovative and elite level instruction to players everywhere.
