Cory Amory is the Head Pro at The Flagstick. He has trained under some of the best teachers in the country including Kandi Comer (US Kids Top 50 Junior Instructor), Rob McNamara (three-time All-American at LSU), and renowned sports psychologist Dr. Bob Rotella. The valuable experience gained from these mentors has helped Cory to develop a simplistic approach to teaching centered around solid fundamentals, a dedication to the short game, and a strong mentality. He is not a believer in the one-swing-fits-all mode of teaching but instead helps players to build a swing around their natural strengths. Cory helps his students to set golf goals and is a proponent of making practice sessions more fun and effective through games and challenges that carry over to the course. Cory’s main goal as a teacher is to help make golf more enjoyable for players of all ages and skill levels.
Cory was born and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia where he began playing golf at the age of 7. Golf was a family activity for Cory and he spent many days out on the golf course with his father, uncle, and cousins. His passion for the game grew quickly and he enjoyed a successful junior career highlighted by an individual and team win at the 2004 Virginia State High School Championship. Cory was the 55th ranked player in the country in his graduating class and accepted a golf scholarship to East Carolina University where he was an Academic All-American before transferring to the University of Virginia to study psychology. During his senior year at UVA, Cory became the first undergraduate faculty member in the history of the university when he instructed a golf class that included over 20 of his fellow students.
Cory moved with his fiancé, Annie, to New Orleans in 2014 and was the teaching professional at Lakewood Golf Club for three years before joining the team at The Flagstick in July 2017.
When not teaching golf, Cory enjoys playing sports, reading, and exploring New Orleans with his fiancé and their dog, Tonks.
