Eli Haskell

Eli Haskell

Staff Instructor - Phone: (303) 968-9859 - Email: ehaskell@gvrgolfacademy.com

Eli is from Glenwood Springs, Colorado and has over 12 years of experience working with golfers of all abilities. He has an undergraduate degree from The Colorado College, and a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Eastern Washington University. This extensive background in the study of human movement has enabled him to become a specialist in golf biomechanics and makes him an expert at correctly identifying his student’s physical makeup pertaining to golf. At the core of Eli’s teaching philosophy is a sincere coaching and mentoring attitude toward the development of golfers. In the end, this creates an ever evolving and growing relationship between student and instructor. Though this philosophy proves successful for golfers of all abilities, Eli’s true passion and expertise is in developing the competitive junior golfer.

Scott played college golf at the University of Tulsa and the University of Colorado. At Colorado, he was an All-American his senior year and then turned professional in 1993. He was a member of PGA Tour Canada from 1997-1999 and then again in 2012. He was also a member of the Web.com Tour in 1996 and again in 2000-2009. His wins include: 1997 Infiniti Championship (PGA Tour Canada), 1999 Canadian PGA Championship, 2000 Colorado Open, 2000 Inland Empire Open (Web.com Tour), and the 2007 Rocky Mountain Open.

He’s learned a great deal from a lot of teachers, but the one thing that applies to everyone is having good fundamentals, and these should be applied to everyone trying to improve.

Craig Palmer

Craig Palmer

Staff Instructor

Craig is the PGA of America’s 46th Master Professional.  His teaching philisophy involves two principles; first, the use of the golf club because the game cannot be played without it.  Second, what is taught must be easy to understand and simple to do.  Craig’s mentor in his teaching since 1972 has been the great Manuel de la Torre.  Craig’s teaching style has worked for people who have never hit a golf ball to AJGA champions, college scholarship players, state and national amateur champions to winners on the PGA and LPGA tours.  Craig has extensive playing experience, having won over 60 tournaments in the Rocky Mountain, Minnesota and Wisconsin PGA sections, and he’s been nominated 6 times for the Colorado PGA Teacher of the Year.  From this, serious students can take comfort in knowing that there is very little they will face that Craig has not already seen.
