Jason Helman is a leader and at the forefront of golf instruction – a national award-winning PGA of Canada Professional with 20 years in the industry.

Over the past 20 years as a Golf Professional, Jason has made his mark in Canada as a top instructor. His passion for the game, pride in his students, and their willingness to learn and develop as golfers or athletes so they can reach their highest pinnacle in the game are what drives him. He said, “All I want is for my students to succeed, whether they’re 5 years old or a tour professional.” He also stated, “I don’t have a one dimensional method or model that I follow, there’s more than one way for people to swing a club.” If you spend an hour or a few sessions with him, he will be sure to turn your game around, perhaps your concept and even attitude or approach to the game. He truly builds life long relationships with his students and it’s one of the main reasons Jason Helman is the best golf coach in Canada.

Certifications:

I’ve had some very influential people in my life they haven’t just been great coaches but rather great people.  I owe a lot to them for where I am today and for the values, trust and insight they provided me over my years of learning which will continue for the rest of my life.  Thank you to the following amazing individuals.

My Parents

My Mom & Dad for instilling life values and principles that made me the person I am today.

My Grandmother

For believing in me and for her Scottish wit and sarcasm, I miss the banter and miss you ; )

Sports Coaches

My Dad, Gord McLellan (football) Ken Dearborn (football) John Druce (football) Glenn Foster (football) Dave Burt (Jr. hockey)

Golf Coaches

Conrad Rehling, an amazing man he made you feel like you were his grandson and did so much for the game.  His methods were very simple but they made so much sense.  Charlie King, so positive in search to help people enjoy the game more.  I hope I get the chance in the near future to work with him again.   Brad Turner for his short game expertise, a wizard, I never won any Turner cash.

My Students

Thank you for allowing me to teach and instruct you.  You are my learning and proving ground. I hope you get out there and continue to prove it to yourselves and the golf course.
