PGA of America Coaching Centre’s New Hires

The PGA of America Coaching Centre is housed at PGA Frisco.

Frisco, Texas, United States: The PGA of America has announced new hires for the PGA of America Coaching Centre at PGA Frisco. 

PGA Master Professional Tim Cusick becomes PGA Head Coach; Pablo del Olmo, PGA is Lead Coach, Adult Group Programming; and Ryan Hitt, PGA is Lead Coach, Junior Golf Programming.

The PGA of America Coaching Centre at PGA Frisco, open now to the public, is the association’s only signature, state-of-the-art, consumer-facing golf coaching and training facility.

The 12,000-square-foot Coaching Centre is located toward the eastern end of the PGA Frisco Practice Facility, within the Monument Realty PGA District. It combines coaching, club fitting and fitness training to create a unique, high-touch, high-tech and data-driven experience that serves beginner golfers to elite players of all ages and backgrounds.

The Coaching Centre is a global hub and laboratory to develop and foster the PGA Coaching Philosophy, which utilises the American Development Model for Golf (ADM) and provides an organic connection to more than 29,000 PGA of America Professionals.

Leading the operation of the PGA Coaching Centre is PGA Master Professional Cusick, who was hired to develop, open and operate the facility.

A 35-year PGA of America Member, Cusick spent three years with the PGA of America as an Education Faculty Member, implementing the Professional Golf Management education and training programme for PGA of America Golf Professionals and university students across the country. For 16 years, he served as Director of Golf Instruction of The Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club in Irving, Texas.

“The PGA Coaching Centre will serve as yet another touch point between the PGA of America and golfers of all abilities searching for more enjoyment from the game,” said Cusick, recently named to Golf’s ‘2024-2025 Top 100 Teachers in America’ list.

“The Coaching Centre will stand as a shining example of the PGA of America’s mission to serve its Members and grow the game. By implementing the PGA Coaching Philosophy and providing access to the industry’s best equipment and training, PGA Frisco visitors can benefit from the game like never before.”

del Olmo served as a PGA Instructor at The Woodlands Country Club in Texas for 12 years, with special emphasis on short game and swing analysis. He coaches players of all levels including members of the PGA Tour, Korn Ferry Tour and Latin-American Tour.

Between 1999 and 2006, Olmo competed on the Asian PGA, European, Canadian and Mexican Golf Tours. He represented Mexico in three World Cups (2002, 2004, 2005) and is a former National Golf Coach for the Mexican Golf Federation.

Hitt, a PGA of America Member since 2018, has a passion for junior golf. He previously spent eight years at the Trophy Club Country Club in Texas, including the final three years as Director of Player Development.

His students have more than 60 tournament victories, and 14 have played collegiate golf. He currently serves on the Northern Texas PGA Junior Golf Committee, devoted to improving the junior golf experience in the Northern Texas PGA Section.

He was named a National Top 50 Coach by Operation 36 and was a finalist for the Randy Smith Youth Player Development Award in 2022.

Adjacent to the new Home of the PGA of America, the PGA of America Coaching Centre’s proximity to the Monument Realty PGA District, the Omni PGA Frisco Resort and the Fields Ranch East and West Courses furthers the experience for community members and golf enthusiasts turning to the game for recreation and family enjoyment.
