REYNOLDS KINGDOM OF GOLF BUILDS STELLAR INSTRUCTION TEAM

Cain Named Director; Adams, Crosby to Provide Ultimate Performance Staff

Greensboro, GA (March 27, 2019) Award-winning golf instructor Sean Cain has been named the new Director for the Reynolds Kingdom of Golf presented by TaylorMade, the state-of-the-art game improvement center at Reynolds Lake Oconee.

Cain, who joined the Reynolds Kingdom of Golf last year as Lead Instructor, will continue teaching and be joined on staff by former PGA Tour player Blake Adams, who will work as a Lead Instructor as well as in Player Development, and Taylor Crosby as a Lead Instructor.

“With the combination of these three tremendous instructors in place at the Reynolds Kingdom of Golf, we have taken the next step in elevating instruction to ultimate levels,” said Mike Scully, General Manager of The Club at Reynolds Lake Oconee. “We are developing fresh offerings that will showcase our new team’s high level of talents.”

Cain, 44, has worked in almost every aspect of the golf business, at both public and private courses, in agronomy, event sales and coordination, and in merchandising. Hailing from Winder, Ga., Cain was named the 2018 Georgia PGA North Chapter Teacher of the Year, and previously was 2013 Georgia PGA North Chapter Professional of the Year.

Adams, 43, competed on the PGA Tour from 2010 through 2016, during which he played and practiced with the best players in the world and contended at major championships. Adams earned more than $4 million in his career despite left hip problems that resulted in surgeries in 2013 (repaired) and 2014 (replaced). Adams most recently competed on the Web.com Tour from 2017 through spring 2018. He began teaching in 2018 focusing on short game, course management and the mental approach to the game.

Crosby, 35, began his teaching career in the fall of 2011 at the Jim McLean Golf Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Crosby also has served as head professional at Sky Valley (Ga.) Country Club and caddied on the Web.com Tour. An accomplished competitive golfer, Crosby played collegiately at Georgia (2002-2003) and North Carolina State (2004-2005).
