Understood.  Seems like you have the right approach to these lists.

Oy, I saw this list last week, should have given you the heads up, assumed you knew about it already. Anyways, if that's the case next year, will let you know, congrats!

This is the list for next year. 2017-18. :-)

I love how the lists for two-year periods (Best Young Teachers was 2016-17) come out in late October of the first year. :-P

I was reading the most recent issue of Golf Digest magazine and they listed the top instructors by state. When I looked at Pennsylvania, not really any surprise but Dave Wedzik and @iacas were listed as the number 4 and number 6 golf instructors in the state, respectively. Congrats guys! I think I'll have to make the trip up to Erie this winter or early spring and check out the facility and get a lesson

Yes, I noticed this in the November Issue. i was a little surprized that none of my favorite instructors are on the list, but were discussed at length in the article(s).  Seems like Hank Haney, David Leadbedder, Bob Toski, and others still appear, but the newer young guns bring much more to the game. It is my understanding that the ratings were from other instructors/peer group.  Ratings from students would be more telling, but also not so relevant as the opinions would be so widely varied from so many with different degrees of actual understanding.

In any event, congrats to all who were mentioned.

Congrats yes to @iacas and @david_wedzik.

Disagree-Though-That students would be the better choice. Most do not take lessons. Those that do mostly do not practice and only take lessons from one or two people and almost always right in their very small area.-Might work in Rhode Island, not in many other states.

You only vote for other people in your state right @iacas?

Yeah, and I'm not sure who votes, either. I got a vote after being added to the Best Young Teachers list. Dave hasn't gotten a ballot, though I think he will now. I don't think you get to vote for yourself. But anyway, that's not a huge list of people voting. I'd think they'd want more than 200 or so, you know?

The PA voting is weird. Most everyone seems to be from the Philly area. We know Dunigan and Dynda pretty well. They took 5SK classes. I know of a few others. Mostly we deal with people in NY and OH, though, so it was tough in that sense to crack the list.

Also sucks (and now I'm remembering I already typed this stuff…) that we can't vote for people in NY or OH that we know and think deserve higher spots.
