Dixon Golf’s Jeff Ritter named to Golf Digest’s ‘Best Young Teachers’

Jeff Ritter, one of the top golf coaches in the Phoenix area, has been named to Golf Digest’s ‘Best Young Teachers’. Ritter runs his golf instructional business at ASU Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, and is a pro sponsored player with Dixon Golf.

The list compiled by Golf Digest outlines the top 40 golf coaches under the age of 40 in the United States. There are literally hundreds of coaches in the Phoenix-area alone giving golf lessons at the more than 300 golf courses. Extrapolate that nationally, and it’s easy to see what an achievement this is for Ritter.

“I’m honored to be included in such a prestigious group of my peers. It’s rewarding to see that all the hard work I have put into making my students successful has been validated by an industry giant like Golf Digest” says Ritter.

Aside from being a professional instructor at ASU Karsten Golf Course, Ritter is also sponsored by Dixon Golf, the first eco-friendly golf company. Dixon Golf provides Ritter and his students with golf balls in the hopes of increasing the awareness of sustainable golf.

“We could not be more proud of Jeff,” Dixon Golf CEO William Carey said. “Being named to this list just shows that Golf Digest saw in Jeff what we see, which is a young coach who exemplifies a holistic approach to golf and life.”
