Everyone is different in their own swings. When someone comes to me for golf instruction, I first ask a lot of questions about their overall game. Then I ask the student what their goals are and the time frame in attaining those goals. If golfers have been playing for any length of time, they already have a swing in their head. I just tweak around the edges to help the student understand why they hit the ball the way they do and make improvements with their game immediately. If a student wants to change their entire swing, I explain the process and the time involved. Practice is the key to a successful outcome in any endeavor. My golf lessons work for everyone.


I use slow motion video to show the students their swings and explain the basic physics that go into striking a golf ball. I explain to the students the "Why" of the golf swing and how the golf swing works. The student must know these concepts in order to self learn and be their own "Coach" on the golf course. I also play one or two holes with the student in each lesson. The student learns more playing on the golf course then just hitting range balls. I follow up every lesson with an email on what we worked on and provide drills for the student to do at home or in their office. The drills are easy but tell the mind how the muscles are supposed to work.
