TGA of Gwinnett County

Meet the Team

Tenesha Davis
Territory Director

Tenesha Davis began playing competitive sports at the age of 8 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She graduated from Norfolk State University and earned her Master’s in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. Those valuable lessons learned thru sport and education carried over into her life where she worked in Engineering and the Finance industry for 12 years.

Tenesha began mentoring and coaching children in the late 90’s and as a result of her passion for both playing and coaching, it was a natural fit to begin a new adventure with TGA Premier Sports.

She welcomes the opportunity to use sports as a vehicle to teach kids important character building skills, while also providing a positive, fun environment to learn the basic fundamentals of the game.

John Taylor
Golf Coach

John Taylor was introduced to the game of golf at age 9 by his father. He liked it so much that he started competing in junior tournaments by age 11. He started teaching golf to children at age 21 with the Elijah Walker Golf Program.  Between the ages of 26 and 40, he competed in many amateur and professional events in GA.  For the last 4 years, John has come full circle and is teaching golf to kids and adults again. He really enjoys the sport and is very knowledgeable about the rules, competing, golf etiquette and different techniques on the course.

John’s philosophy is to keep it fun at all times.  He brings this attitude to his teaching style at TGA.  He understands that no two children are alike and he tailors his class so that each child has a unique experience that they will long remember in the years to come.

Jared Ross
Golf Coach

Jared Ross is from West Orange, New Jersey and has been a golf coach since he was 16. He started by volunteering at the First of Tee of Metropolitan New York at Weequahic Park in Newark, NJ as a Junior Coach. After 2 years, he had to find an alternative opportunity due to lack of funding and discovered TGA of Essex County in New Jersey. There he began teaching every summer when he came home from college. After he graduated from Morehouse College, he found out there was a TGA nearby in Gwinnett County, Georgia and the rest is history.

Coach Ross has also been selected as Coach of Fall 2018 by his peers and staff. Congratulations!
