Jud could not be more excited to arrive at KOHR Golf this spring. Jud is looking forward to bringing his experience and excitement for the game to the Boston area. Jud believes in the cliché that “golf is a game of six inches” and prides himself on being able to teach tactical intelligence and become efficient at course management. Since 2015, he has worked with Jason Baile PGA at Belfair Golf Club (Top 100 golf instructors in the U.S.; Hilton Head Island PGA Teacher of the Year) learning how to manage his own golf game. In a teaching capacity, Jud has worked with players of all ages and handicaps—ranging from young children, junior development, to Wounded Warriors with swing limitations but positive attitudes to make up for it! In addition, he has spent a great deal of time working with single digit players, professionals, and college athletes.

Co-Director, Onsite Healthcare Dan Moran
Dan is a certified First Tee Lead Coach and TPI certified instructor. He is a certified club fitter for Titleist, Ping, Taylormade, and Callaway. Once he received his college degree and passed the Players Ability Test (PAT), he started working with KOHR in 2018.View Dan's Bio ⟩
Dan has worked in the golf industry for over 10 years, starting out as a caddie at Wollaston Country Club, then moving over to George Wright Golf Course. There, he gained a real passion for the game and took to learning about course management and the golf swing. Dan was involved in working with players of all ages and skill levels, which has taught him how to be a well-rounded instructor.
Dan believes that there are many different ways to swing the golf club. Everyone has to own their individual swing and get the most they can out of it. He preaches strongly that the game is about being able to strategically maneuver your way around the course by playing to your strengths and creating consistent repeatable golf swings that enable you to get the ball where you want it.
This program is designed for boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 16. The staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. At Nike Junior Golf Camps we accommodate all skill levels; the junior player just discovering the game, the high school player trying to move up on the team, and the tournament level junior looking to improve his or her tournament results. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

Sassamon Trace Golf Course
Sassamon Trace is a nine-hole executive length golf course designed in the classic tradition with the beginning golfer in mind. Following the classic style, the natural terrain was studied and the holes were routed accordingly. The steep side slope of the landfill is utilized as a strategic element, defining the right edge of each of the Natick holes.
