Robin Cocq, of Lille, France, has passed the first Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Golf Instructor Certification course and can teach the safest, most efficient swing humanly possible.

Lille, France | June 21, 2011—Robin Cocq became the eleventh instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on May 26, 2011, and is the first person in France who has completed the initial phase of’s golf instructor certification training.

Cocq is an excellent amateur player, currently holding a plus-one handicap and ranking 139th in France’s amateur rankings (an improvement of 69 spots since revamping his swing using the RST system).  Cocq is also a med student who has a keen interest in helping others prevent golf injuries.

“We all want to build a safe, consistent and efficient golf swing,” said Cocq.  “We obviously need to have physics and anatomy on our side to achieve this. That’s why RST is the way to go.”

According to Cocq, at “you’ll find sound fundamentals, a learning program you can use anywhere and anytime, and instructors ready to solve your problems.”

Cocq joins three other international instructors and seven instructors in the United States who have been certified in the fifteen months since the program’s inception.  The speed at which Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Certification is spreading across the globe is not surprising to the company’s founder, Chuck Quinton.

“The bulk of our business originates from our strong web presence at, which doesn’t limit us to any geographic region,” said Quinton.  “Combine that with an online golf instructor certification process for our level one training that meets instructors’ needs for affordability and convenience, and I expect to see RST Certified Instructors everywhere golf is played.”

Quinton indicated that the golf instructor training program has received significant interest since it launched in February 2010 and is excited about the opportunities ahead for his business as well as for the RST Certified Instructors.

“The RST golf instructor certification promises to be a great vehicle for growth, not just for, but also for instructors teaching our methods,” said Quinton.  “The mutually beneficial nature of our certification program promises to drive its success.”

In addition to providing objective, scientific facts about golf instruction and the swing to improve golf coaching techniques, Rotary Swing Golf offers Certified Instructors promotional benefits to boost their revenues.  These golf instructors realize significant visibility through listings on the heavily trafficked, inclusion in weekly email newsletters to thousands of golfers, and postings on social media like Facebook and’s Golf Forums and Golf Instruction Blog.

“Not many golf instructors have websites that pull in thousands of visitors each day,” Quinton said.  “We can help them get their names out to potential students without spending a boatload on web design, search engine optimization, and online advertising.”

Ultimately, though, an instructor’s success comes down to the quality of golf instruction provided, and Quinton went to great lengths to ensure only the most knowledgeable golf instructors will earn certification.

According to the RST Golf Instructor Certification Overview page on, “The information that must be learned just to pass Level 1 requires on average 100 hours of study on swing mechanics, physics, anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and more.”  The website indicates that these fields represent “many disciplines typical golf instructor training neglects.”
