Prior to his arrival at Parish in the summer of 2014, Coach Day spent five years at The Westwood School where he taught science as part of the International Baccalaureate Program. Coach Day has worked with a number of student-athletes and sports’ programs since coming to Parish, but the opportunity to coach golf is the one that excites him the most. Coach Day is a scratch golfer and has been an independent golf coach instructor since 2018. He actively and successfully competes in local golf tournaments and leagues.
Coach Day’s Coaching Philosophy:
“All sports have lessons beyond competition but none greater than the game of golf. Golf reveals intrapersonal strengths and weaknesses immediately. My goal as a coach is to improve physical fundamentals but also address the mental aspect of the game and how that translates to everyday life. Golf is a competition against oneself, and I would like to see all my student-athletes strive to be better versions of themselves.”
