How Our Lessons Are Different

One of the main reasons many players make changes to their swing with every issue of Golf Digest is that they don't understand the concept of their swing. Plato once said "Insecurity comes from not understanding the concept" and this applies in spades to golf.

We'll explain why you are being taught what you are being taught during your lessons, so that you will develop a good understanding of your swing. You'll also be educated on ball flight laws, so that you'll have a concept of why your ball is doing what it's doing. That's the only way you'll be able to diagnose and self - correct your mistakes in the future. We'll help you formulate a plan for improvement, and we'll present it in a way that allows you to understand what needs to be done.

Another thing that makes our lessons different is the emphasis placed on ball striking. Being able to compress the ball with your swing is one of the first things a student should learn, it's that important.

Lesson Testimonials

Students that opt for any Fundamental lesson or Fundamental lesson package receive lesson notes prior to each lesson so that they can review what will be covered in the lesson ahead of time. My students have told me that having the information beforehand greatly helps them relate to the drills when we actually do them at the lesson. I also send a brief follow up "lesson comments" email to give the student feedback on what we covered.

Students really appreciate this feature because it reinforces what we've gone over during the lesson and addresses specific strengths and weaknesses.

Who Should Take Lessons

Anyone, young or old, beginner or experienced, that wants to increase their skill level and enjoy the game more should try lessons. Lessons are for anyone that wants to learn, not just elite golfers.

If a student wants to learn, I want to teach.  

I guarantee that all students will feel comfortable during the lessons regardless of gender, race, or social status.

Although there is no "one swing fits all" in golf, there are certain fundamental elements of the swing that do apply to all, and you'll learn them here.



What To Expect From Your Lessons

First of all, you will learn a technique for good ball striking. Then we'll work on an efficient full swing method, as well as putting and chipping if you select those options.

If you are a beginner, or if you are a high handicapper that has been playing for a while without much success, you should probably start with the Fundamentals 4 Lesson Package. After you have completed all of the lessons, you should see dramatic improvement in your short game - putting and chipping - and you should have a basic understanding of how to execute a full swing correctly. Your brain will assimilate the short swings - putting and chipping - faster than the full swing technique, simply because there are fewer moving parts. The full swing requires more practice to become proficient. You will be taught correct technique, and you will learn drills to help you to continue to practice correctly. After that, more correct practice breeds more success.

If you are a more accomplished golfer, you will probably opt for Private Lessons. In this type of lesson, we usually identify areas of your game or swing that need improvement and proceed accordingly. At the conclusion of a private lesson, the student and I will have identified what needs work, and the student will have a good grasp of what he or she needs to do to improve.

Students that take private lessons should be those persons that are committed to improving their game and that are willing to spend the time to do so. It takes repetitions to build a good swing, and it's a process that requires recurring practice. It doesn't necessarily involve going to the range to hit balls every day, but it will require repetitive practice of movements on a regular basis. That's the only way that real, lasting improvement can be realized.

We will work on segments of your swing then put it all together for a finished product. Improvement doesn't happen overnight, it's a process - but it's a process that will last and allow you to develop a swing that you can repeat.
