Breaking Par with Bernard Sheridan Episode 140 Gary Gilchrist Interview

Gary Gilchrist joins us for this weeks interview. Gary works with Lydia Ko and talks about his approach to coaching some of the top players on the LPGA Tour.

Here is a little bit about Gary

Simply put, Gary Gilchrist is synonymous with junior golf. In a coaching career that spans more than 20 years, Gilchrist has been responsible for recruiting, training and developing more top-ranked junior-level golfers than any other coach in the world.

In his illustrious coaching career, Gilchrist has taught more than 75 American Junior Golf Association All-Americans, six AJGA Players of the Year, two U.S. Amateur champions (American David Gossett and Colombia’s Maria Jose Uribe), two U.S. Junior Girls champions (Chile’s Nicole Perrot and Korea’s In-Kyung Kim), one NCAA women’s champion (Thailand’s Virada Nirapathpongporn) and one U.S. Public Links champion (American Michelle Wie).

Gilchrist also teaches many of the game’s best professionals. Gilchrist coaches China’s first fully exempt LPGA Tour player Shanshan Feng and helped Yani Tseng ascend to No. 1 in the world, who when combined together, have won a combined 6 majors since 2010 under Gilchrist’s guidance — Tseng (4) and Feng (2).

Episode 137 Nick Tumminello Interview


This week our guest is Nick Tumminello fitness expert from Fort Lauderdale Florida.
Nick is not a golfer but understands what it takes to train golfers to play their best. Here is a little bit about Nick.

Nick’s hybrid approach to training allows him to leverage the tools, knowledge and skills of many disciplines and methods to help his clients and to educate other trainers how to deliver results.

As early as his teenage years Nick knew that he wanted to be a trainer. His early influence came from his mother, growing up in a gym watching her prepare for bodybuilding competitions. She’ll tell you that “Nick grew up on iron and sweat.”

As a way to connect Nick and his mother attended fitness events and conferences from the time he was 16 years old.

Personal training is the only ‘real job’ nick’s ever known. But, his story isn’t common. Not being one to fall in line with the crowd Nick never attended college or got a degree. He graduated high school as an average student. He worked hard to accumulate a lot of on the job experience and despite his distaste for structured education Nick was very interested in learning.

After being fired from his first two personal training jobs due to his independent thinking and lack of needing to ‘fit in’ he went off on his own to start a business.

Training and fitness aren’t a hobby to Nick. This is a profession that he’s very passionate about.

It would be easy to confuse Nick as a ‘science guy’ due to his ability to challenge thoughts and ideas, the way he respects the scientific process and critical thinking. However, he’s most excited by the application and end results that the information he learns and the ideas he creates can produce.   “Studies and research are great, but if there is no practical application there is no need”

Nick’s approach to many things can be described in three words…

Hustle and Muscle.

This is applied in training, business and intellectually for Nick.


Nick’s hybrid, mixed approach to training allows for the possibility that you can look great and perform great at the same time with a calculated and specific approach to training.
