LIVE A PEACEFUL LIFE

Golf Las Américas would like to introduce you to the coach of PGA tour players Noah Pilipski and author of the book "Peaceful-Golf A journey into the unknown". All golfers know that golf is a very psychological sport, that's why it is very interesting to discover the philosophy that promotes Noah: "Golf should be a complete action, just like life. Everything is connected. Like it or not, the state of mind during your round will affect your swing. With direction, I will show you how to harness the mind and bring a state of alertness and focus to the game that will allow you to move in an athletic, artistic way as opposed to a mechanical, robotic way".

Coach Pilipski is ranked as Golf Digest's "Top Teachers in America" and Top 100 golf course reviewer. You can find more information on his website
