My 25+ years of teaching experience has brought me to a few conclusions:
- Each person swings a golf club differently and there is no one universal way to swing the club.
- It is very important to understand your golf swing and how change can make it better.
- There are a few different ways to teach the same concept. Not all players learn the same way.
- Advances in technology have made it easier to communicate swing concepts.
- Practice is essential to progress. You get out of it what you put in it.
- The future of the game of golf relies on our children playing the game.
- My players teach me more about the golf swing than anything else could.
- Finally, it doesn’t take hours to improve; it could only take a few minutes a day.
My Goals as Your Instructor
- Create a very relaxed learning environment where all aspects of the game can be improved.
- I allow my players to not only understand what they are doing with their swing but how to fix it themselves.
- Get my players to play golf with their strengths and not weaknesses.
- Show my players that a good mental game will help you lower your score.
- To lower your score through our hard work.
What makes me different as an instructor?
- I use the latest technology to help convey what I am trying to teach.
- My use of specific drills and training aids bridges the gap between technology and what it feels like to hit great golf shots.
- I have played golf at the highest levels and can relate that experience to the everyday golfer.
- I am fully dedicated to seeing you lower your score and enjoy this great game!
- I understand that changing your golf game is a process and not a one shot fix for most people.
The Use of Technology to Improve Your Game
Technology has changed the way we coach golf. That’s for sure. Listed below are a variety of things I use to help my players achieve their goals.
