GUPPY GOLF INSTRUCTOR Sally Quinlan, LPGA Guppy Golf Creator, Director and Instructor Sally Quinlan, LPGA is a Life Member of the LPGA. Sally was an LPGA Tour Player from 1983 - 1990 and posted 32 top thirty finishes, 16 top ten finishes and one tournament victory in her 6 full seasons on the LPGA Tour. Sally has been in the LPGA Teaching Division since 1989, giving her over 20 years of golf instruction experience. Sally is the Founder and Director of Guppy Golf, created in the fall of 2011, when after turning too many kids away from the ages of 3 - 6 who had to "wait" to begin organized golf instruction classes, she decided to create a golf program targeted specifically for this underserved age group. Through the C.H.I.P. life skills stressed in each and every Guppy Golf class (Compliments, Honesty, Introducing Yourself, and Patience), Sally feels golf is a sport that teaches important life skills and inherent values that kids of all ages and abilities can use for the rest of their lives.
