Tour Edge announced that is has signed Top 100 golf instructor Shawn Humphries as a performance coach and teaching ambassador for the brand. 

Humphries is one of the top golf instructors in the world and has become an industry leader in creating digital content for his students and followers. He is the Director and principal of Shawn Humphries Golf Performance and is also the Founder of Elite Performance Systems located in Grapevine, Texas. 

Elite Performance Systems is a sports performance-training program that specializes in developing young athletes & college teams into world class performers. He also consults for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints. 

His performance training has produced over 1,400 individual and team champions. They range from, Junior World, AJGA, NCAA, Canadian, Nationwide, PGA, LPGA, and European Tour winners. 

“Shawn’s innovative approach with digital content has made the game of golf easier for hundreds of thousands of golfers over the past 30 years,” said Tour Edge Vice President of Marketing Jon Claffey. “Shawn will be applying his Elite Performance System to his content for followers of Tour Edge’s social media followers. His system is world class and has led to PGA Tour victories and even to Olympic Gold medals. He spent the entire 2018 training camp with the New Orleans Saints after only planning on being there a few days to present his system. Now look at their record! That goes to show you that Shawn has actually taken what he has learned as a top golf instructor and transcended it to all sports. We want to be able to share this caliber of coaching with all fans of Tour Edge and we plan on doing a video every other week sharing Shawn’s philosophy and teaching methods!”

Humphries will integrate Tour Edge into his NCAA/Elite Performance Systems Conferences, as well as his hugely successful Junior golf programs. These conferences and workshops are attended by top collegiate golf coaching staff around the country. Elite Performance System is currently being utilized and licensed by 25 NCAA D-1 Schools. Humphries also conducts up to four NCAA Coaches Conferences each year training golf coaches in his Elite Performance System. 

Humphries is the keynote presenter in the GRAA Boot Camp Workshops each year put on in different PGA of America sections. He will also incorporate Tour Edge custom fit golf clubs into future instructional material for his recreational golfer training programs.

“I have always admired Tour Edge from afar as an American company that made amazing products,” said Humphries. “When they came out with Exotics 10 plus years ago, I was blown out of the water by the performance it offered. While other manufacturers started skimping on technology, materials and components, Tour Edge headed in the other direction, looking for the best materials possible to make the best performing clubs possible. It was this year when I noticed their explosion on the PGA Tour Champions that I knew I had to get involved.”

Humphries’ teaching experience has carried him across the country and around the globe. He’s taught on five of the seven continents in 12 different countries. Humphries served as the Director of The Byron Nelson Golf School at the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Dallas, Texas and Director of Instruction at Carmel Valley Ranch, Carmel, California, and Dallas Cowboys Golf Club.
