Who Is FGG?


Doug Lawrie & his Focus Golf Group are leading the evolution on how golfers experience learning the game. The experience that each individual golfer receives allows them to access and monitor their improvement unlike anywhere else via the Focus Golf Group 5 step process that builds you “Your Road Map to Better Golf”. The brainchild of PGA  of Canada’s 2012 Jr. Leader of the Year winner Doug Lawrie, his passion, leadership and unique ability to make anyone improve their golf game, make the FGG Academy the Leaders in the Clubhouse. “

It could be that you won’t find anyone who loves what they do for a living more than me. Life is way too short to let the little stuff get in the way of seeing the big picture! Over the course of my nearly 30 years as a member of the Canadian PGA, I have always enjoyed how the learning of golf continues to bestow on those willing to grow. This has guided me to seek out challenges in new and exciting endeavors. It is essential to give yourself a canvas in which to paint a clear picture of your career, so you can continually add to its wealth of knowledge. This is the cornerstone which drives my great desire to help others, build strong relationships and see others succeed at their goals.

This is why I started the Focus Golf Group Academy. Providing amazing, top-level instructional programs while using the latest technology allows us to tap into our 5 step process to helping you find the road map to success. Thank you for visiting our site. Enjoy.
