On this episode of our Golf series I chatted with Director of Instruction at Southern Hills Country Club Mr Ryan Rode. Ryan was born and raised in Oklahoma, grew up on the 11th hole out at Oak Tree East course so naturally golf was all he knew. He then played in college and decided to chase the golf profession shortly after graduating. Realizing a 9-5 job was not going to cut it. So Ryan went to work with and for some of the biggest names in the business all over the country, for legendary coaches like Hank Haney, Cameron McCormak and finally coming full circle back to Oklahoma to Gaillardia as Head Pro and then in the last year to Southern Hills CC in Tulsa. Ryan has an extremely impressive selection of young Oklahoma Amataur and professional golfers that he works with. No doubt you'll be seeing him walking the ranges on tour in the near future.
