Your Instructors

When players want to work on their game they come to the TOURAcademy®. We’ll start at the beginning. We’ll look at grip, posture and alignment, analyze their swing and watch them practice. We’ll work on developing a consistent full swing by breaking it down. We'll then focus on dialing in their short game, taking them through the TOURAcademy® instructional progressions. The pros receive the exact same instructions in the same sequence that you'll receive with the TOURAcademy® Home Edition. We're excited to bring our instructional program to all golfers and we know it will help you make huge gains in your golf game.

Christina Lecuyer

Christina Lecuyer grew up in a golf family in her hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. Father Tony has been a golf professional for over 30 years, and her two brothers, Steven and Ryan have had accomplished amateur careers. Steven now plays professionally on the Canadian Tour. Lecuyer didn’t take up the game herself until age 18, but quickly made up for lost time. She broke 90, 80 and par for the first time all in her first summer, and won the first three tournaments she played.

Lecuyer earned a scholarship to University of Central Arkansas, where she won five tournaments and was first-team all-conference three times. She turned professional in 2007, and got her first real national exposure as a two-time contestant on the Golf Channel’s Big Break series. After three years of competing on the mini-tours, Lecuyer shifted her focus to hosting corporate and charity golf events, where she plays, teaches and performs emcee duties at more than 25 sites around the world each year.
