University of Houston Coach Jonathan Dismuke and JJ Wood partnered together in 2015 to develop an elite junior golf academy at Wildcat Golf Club. The objective is to offer world-class training programs to all junior golfers in the Houston area.

Junior golf programs start at age 5 with the kids academy and progress up to the Varsity Group for advanced junior golfers ages 18 and under.

Junior golfers need a process and plan to progress and reach their goals. Based on the junior golfers initial assessment, we will place them in the correct group to match their age and ability level. In the groups we use strategic drills and training styles, designed to keep it fun and develop them into the best golfers they can be.

As a player, I proved this process was effective when I was named 2017 South Texas PGA Player of the Year, played in The 2018 Houston Open and qualified for my first PGA Tour Major Championship in 2017.... 10 years after I quit my playing career (quit practicing).

Understanding your game, tracking progress and focusing on the most important aspects of the game keep it simple to ensure progress. The same principles apply to golfers of all skill levels and my passion is helping golfers of all ages and ability levels understand this process and implement into their game quickly.

“I first connected with JJ to receive help connecting with college coaches. I then utilized his player development program to prepare for competitive tournaments. These programs worked, as I won the Texas State Junior Championship and have a golf scholarship to Arkansas, Little Rock!”
