Sean said: “I have had my eye on Myrtle Beach for some time, and wanted to be where the action is in golf,” said Fister. “This was an opportunity that was simply too good to pass up. To be a part of such a great facility and team at the Dustin Johnson Golf School is a dream come true for me! I hope to make a positive impact in the community that is already ‘The Golf Capital of the World.’”
“Everybody wants to hit the ball farther, but that sentence is incomplete,” said Fister. “They want to hit the ball farther, but they want to find the ball. What I can do is help with distance, and accurate distance.”
“I will definitely find you some yards. There is no question about that,” said Fister. “But, these yards are going to come down the fairway. That’s what I do, and that’s what I am excited to do at the Dustin Johnson Golf School.”
Allen Terrell, 2020 Carolinas PGA Teacher of the Year, who also coaches the worlds top ranked golfer and most recent winner of The Masters, Dustin Johnson looks forward to having Sean Fister join his coaching staff at the Dustin Johnson Golf School.
“Sean has traveled the world conducting more than 1,000 clinics for people to help improve their game. There is no one more qualified and experienced who can teach our golf clinics and schools,” said Terrell. “Sean has an incredible passion for helping people improve their game, and he is the perfect fit for our goal of adding more opportunities for golfers to improve.”
Fister is a coach in the Dustin Johnson Junior Golf Academy, which offers a developmental roadmap for young golfers ages 5-13 to introduce them to the game and hone their competitive skills along the journey. Terrell noted that Fister will also be leading a new series of teaching clinics at the Dustin Johnson Golf School, which will be scheduled and announced in the near future.
“From its namesake to its staff, facility, and technology, the Dustin Johnson Golf School is a world-class operation. I can’t imagine a better opportunity for me to pursue my passion for sharing my knowledge to help golfers, from kids to seniors, improve their play in the game I love,” said Fister. “Having raised three kids of my own, I am especially passionate about helping young golfers learn to play a game that also comes with great life lessons that will serve them well beyond the golf course.”
Sean was inducted to the Long Drivers of America Hall of Fame in 2002, the Poplar Bluff Sports Hall of Fame in 2005 and Arkansas Golf Hall of Fame in 2008.
