Glacier’s Alex Fisher Featured in Golf Tips Magazine

Alex Fisher, our Director of Instruction, is featured in the latest issue of Golf Tips Magazine. Fisher’s feature, “The Great Desert Escape,” covers step-by-step advice on how to tackle challenging shots, providing his expertise from years of experience golfing on every type of terrain. 

Drawing upon the skills that make him one of the nation’s top instructors, Fisher shares his wisdom and meticulous thought process with golfers looking to challenge fairway bunker and desert greenside shots: “Playing golf in Arizona presents many challenges that aren’t often found in other regions. Because of the scarcity of water in the southwest, golf courses reduce the amount of grass and rough by replacing it with fairway bunkers and desert landscape around the greens, so it’s often called ‘target golf.’ If you’re not able to keep your ball in play, you’re likely to find either one of these situations.”

Fisher’s golf methodology is one-of-a-kind, spending half the year in Colorado and half the year in Arizona. Explaining posture, backswing, downswing, feel, perspective, clubhead selection, and more, Fisher breaks down every shot into both an art and a science.

It’s a pleasure to have Fisher’s thoughtful and passionate presence on the lesson tee at Glacier, and we’re excited to try out his advice next time we hit the desert.
