Doug Wherry is a dedicated, nurturing, mentoring teacher who introduces and polishes precise technical skills. What makes this program so successful is that it is designed for and dedicated specifically to the elite junior golfer, and it has helped our daughter grow and mature in both golf and life.
Jakes Academy is an environment where junior golfers engage with like-minded individuals and learn from premier golf teachers how to be successful in the game of golf. But, for those who have become familiar with Jakes Academy, it has proven to be so much more than that.
Jakes Academy was started by Doug Wherry, PGA. Doug’s passion for golf and understanding of its core principals came from Jake Warde. Not a golf professional by trade, Jake’s love and enthusiasm for the game he loves touches everyone he meets and has for half a century. He has mentored tour professionals on the LPGA and PGA tours, helped youth pay their way through college, and helped hundreds to enjoy golf more thoroughly.
