Tiffany Faucette has had a long career in golf as a player and instructor. She didn’t start playing the game until age 17 but went on to play four years at Florida State (she was the Seminoles’ captain for two seasons) and then played professionally for 11 years before embarking on a teaching career that has lasted 17 years and counting. Her enthusiasm and exuberance have made her extremely popular with students of all ages and ability levels.
Today, Faucette is the lead instructor at the 1757 Club in Dulles, Virginia, just outside Washington DC. A past LPGA Northeast Section Teacher of the Year she has written a book on golf and recently introduced a new teaching aid, The Impact Improver is Faucette’s own invention.
She recently joined me on Women’s Golf Report to talk about her invention, her book, and her theories about golf and the golf swing.

About Rick Woelfel
A member of the Golf Writers Association of America, Rick Woelfel has covered women’s golf for three decades. Based in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania he has covered the LPGA and Symetra Tours for various media outlets and also has an extensive background covering amateur golf in the golfing hotbed of Philadelphia.
Rick is particularly attracted to the history of the sport and credits the LPGA and its players for their efforts to preserve the history of their organization. In 2012, he had the opportunity to attend the Founders Cup and had the opportunity to interview all the then living Founders, an experience he lists as one of the most memorable of his career.
Apart from golf, Rick has written extensively about other sports and had a long career in radio. He has just completed his first book, So You Want to Play Golf, a guide for new golfers, which was a joint effort with PGA professional Kim Verrecchio.
