Player Development Director

Hometown: Centennial, CO

Somin believes that strong fundamentals are the cornerstone for any golfer looking to have a repeatable swing that produces consistent and desirable results on the golf course. She also understands that all golfers have their own unique swings and talents, so she doesn’t have a “one swing fits all” mentality. Spending time with her students, learning about all the facets of their game, and catering her teaching to fit their skills, is the most effective way for her to maximize their potential.
