Born in Evansville, Indiana, Jason first discovered his love for the game of golf at the age of 14. While earning a Psychology degree, he used his passion for the game to earn a Division 1 scholarship at The University of Evansville where he became an All Missouri Valley Conference player and an All Academic Conference nominee.
Currently, Jason, PGA, is the Director of Instruction at Forest Highlands in Flagstaff, AZ for the summer season. Formerly the Head Teaching Professional for The McCord Golf Academy in Orlando, FL during the winter months and a Director of Instruction in Ohio during the summer months where he was named the Northern Ohio PGA Section Teacher of the Year in 2013. Jason now spends the entire year in Arizona bridging his summer season in Flagstaff with a Director of Instruction role at Mirabel in North Scottsdale for the winter season. Jason was recently voted Best Instructor in the Valley by Arizona Foothills Magazine.

Recently named 2016 "Best Instructor in the Valley" for the third straight year and 2013 Northern Ohio PGA Section Teacher of the Year. Jason Reddington Golf Instruction brings over 12 years of teaching experience from Top 100 Teacher Rick McCord, and an extensive background in the mechanics and analytics of the golf swing, but focuses on improving your game in what matters most, shooting lower scores.
It is my goal to provide students with the information, techniques, and skills they need to improve their golf performance and their enjoyment of the game. Instructing, teaching, and coaching to provide excellence in golf instruction is my passion and commitment to every student. Improving the student as a golfer, and not just their golf swing is the overall goal. To do this, you must understand what the student's goals and commitments are. Striving to make the student a better player and to shoot lower scores is where I go beyond instruction, and coach my students on the importance of all facets of the game. This means involving areas such as wedge play, putting, and on-course instruction in my programs to help improve the students' games.
It is my belief that the club face determines most of what will happen within the rest of the swing. Getting the club to swing properly and in the right direction is difficult to achieve with a poor club face position. I believe that when the club face is open or in a weak position at the top, the result will only be incorrect sequencing to get the club back to a manageable position at impact. This is a common cause for casting, over the top, or breaking down of the lead arm at impact. Find your club in a stronger position at the top and you will begin to see lag, more inside out path, and a proper release.
To get technical, I fully believe that success in the golf swing and ball striking comes down to something as simple as ball flight, and the understanding of these "NEW" laws. Laws that are now validated with precision technology such as Trackman. This system leaves no guessing and allows me to quickly identify the students' most glaring problem while simplifying the area of focus for the student. Within these laws will describe more technical areas such as a players' club face, club path, and angle of attack. An understanding and correcting of these integral parts to achieve the desired ball flight is the key to constructive learning and improvement. This awareness allows the body to be "free-er in the golf swing and accommodate the position of the club, not the other way around. This keeps the golf swing simple, and allows for proper sequencing and more natural athleticism to take over.
In closing, there is no method to golf instruction, each individual case brings its own personality, and working with the student to fulfill their needs is the recipe to making them better golfers. Therefore, I am not just a teacher and instructor, but also a coach and motivator.
Jason Reddington is one of the best instructors I have ever had work with me over my career. His knowledge of teaching is significantly beyond his years.
