Ryan "Coach Rusty" Rustand
Known on instagram as @coach_rusty, I am one of the worlds best Golf Trickshot Artists.
My father started me off golfing very young, before I can remember. The game has always been my passion. I knew that I wanted a career in the industry. The original plan was to chase the dream of being on tour. When I was 19 I moved to Florida to train and play tournaments. Sooner than later I realized that I was falling short of that dream. One thing led to another and I ended up teaching golf. I still do to this day. You can ask any golf coach. It can get pretty slow some days on the range. You could go play or get some practice in, but what I did was different. I started juggling the golf ball with my wedge. I was addicted to it. I started coming up with a pretty cool bag of tricks! I filmed a few videos and put them on instagram, then the rest is history. So many opportunities have opened up for me because of all of this.
You could say the best thing that ever happened to me was not being good enough at golf! I now am filming videos with big brands/companies, and am traveling the country! Couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Always follow your dreams and work to make them come true!!
