The latest issue features Golf Channel Academy lead coach Mike Bender on the cover. Bender, No. 5 in the "Golf Digest" 2015-’16 ranking of the “50 Best Teachers in America,” is also the long-time coach of reigning Open champions and former Masters champ Zach Johnson. In the January issue, Bender gives you three essential full-swing basics to help you achieve an efficient, repeating swing, much like Johnson’s.

In addition to the Bender article, the January issue also features a column from Golf Channel "School of Golf" host Martin Hall on LPGA Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam, and her signature head-turning move through impact. There’s also an in-depth swing analysis of reigning Players champion Rickie Fowler, and how he was able to pick up 10 more yards on his drives, and a Q&A with three former National Teachers of the Year on what you can expect on a first lesson.
