First Look: George Gankas Online Academy

Over the past few years, I have watched swing video after swing video of George Gankas’ top students at his, ever so familiar, Thousand Oaks, California driving range. Like most of his 189,000 Instagram followers, I am familiar with the “Gankas vernacular”, but that’s where it stops. Sure.. I can mimick a Matt Wolff backswing or a Johnny Ruiz follow through, but do I really understand what is happening in their swings that makes them so good? Matchups, P1, dumped-under, dynamic loft… none of it really makes sense to me if I’m being honest.
When it comes to understanding the full scope of what George Gankas is teaching, you can get in line for months to get an in-person lesson at that famed California driving range, OR you can check out the all-new George Gankas Online Academy.
The George Gankas Golf Online Academy is a 12-month online academy aimed at giving you all of the tools that George uses with his top students and allows you to “be your own golf coach”. This curriculum is absolutely jam-packed with well-produced video and content that is released incrementally over the entire year. Judging by the sheer amount of videos and content in level 1 of the program (months 1 - 6) George and his team have been very hard at work bringing this program to life. I started with the first few lessons this week, and I have to say that the interface is well designed and easy to use on a phone, which will be key for those using the program on an actual driving range or course.
The George Gankas Online Academy is not exactly cheap at $499 for the 12-month program, but you have to take into account what you are getting with your investment. For the cost of less than two in-person lessons with George, you are getting a “no stone unturned” program that really goes deep and allows you to learn more and retain more. I’ll admit, it’s probably very helpful to have Jake (George’s assistant) squatting behind you and helping you get into the right positions, while George yells “NOW TURN”, but buying this membership is definitely the next best thing.
