My Teaching Philosophy:
  • First and Foremost – Golf is a game and should be fun. If you are not having fun, we need to figure out how to make it fun.
  • Everybody is different – Each player has a different body, different swing, different limitations and different goals. There is no one swing that will work for all golfers and I will tailor my instruction to fit YOUR game.
  • I don’t buy into the philosophy that when you make swing changes, your game must get worse before it gets better. If I am doing my job, you will see improvement by the end of your first lesson.
  • Any player that wants to reach his/her potential in the game of golf needs someone to help them with their game. 99.9% of Tour players have a swing coach – shouldn’t you?
