No one Andy’s family played golf or even spoke of the sport, but, like many times in Andy’s life, he went against the grain and decided at age 6 that golf would be his true passion. After many years of obsessing over the nuances of the game and playing on high school and college teams, Andy took a break from golf to find a job. During his search for maturity, Andy met the love of his life, Laura. After a short dating period (7 years) they were married and looked forward to an incredible life together.
Just about this time, the movie Tin Cup was released and Andy was reminded about his old friend, the game of golf. You can imagine the delight Laura felt as she looked into a future of living in a trailer on a dusty driving range (“With Cheech”, she often adds). Well, it’s now 20 years later and Andy has has worked at many country clubs as an assistant and Head Golf professional. Always sharing his knowledge of the game and the lessons he’s learned form coaching hundreds of golfers.
Andy’s new adventure is helping golfers achieve their goals in the most efficient way possible. His programs include swing instruction, equipment fitting, and on course strategy. With the help of the team at Pure Fitness, these programs also look at the golfer’s fitness. In his time between clients, Andy writes articles about learning golf and hosts a podcast called The Smash Factor Golf Show.

I have been helping golfers of all skill levels achieve their goals for 20 years. In those years, I developed many strategies that facilitate this process. In 2005, I developed Total Golf, a wholistic approach to golf development. It addresses the players Mental Approach, Fitness, Swing Mechanics and Equipment. I found, through years of experience, that addressing all of these areas at once is definitely the best way to make dramatic and long lasting improvements on golf performance. My philosophy became, “if you move better, you will play better and you will live better”. In 2011, I met Mike and his incredible talent for training and motivation was the perfect compliment to Total Golf. Over the next few years we worked together to develop a program that brings tour level training to every golfer. In 2018, Forged Golf and Fitness came to fruition a the place to take your game to a level you could have only dreamed about. Stop learning golf in a bubble and start developing your whole game.Andy Fish
