Federico Ricci, an experienced tour & academy coach joins us this week! 🇮🇹

Federico is the current coach of Emil Ruusuvuori, but has coached a number of players over the last few years 🔥

We talk about:

  • How his coaching journey started in Florida
  • Moving to Finland to start an academy
  • Working with Emil Ruusuvuori
  • Plans for the future

It was great to be able to chat with Federico about the differences between coaching in an academy and coaching an individual player on a full time basis. It was also eye-opening to hear about the number of weeks each year that he travels for work. Being a tour coach often means that there are very few weeks off! 😯

Hope you enjoy! 💯
