My Teaching Philosophy

What defines a great teacher? Results, period! A great teacher is able to achieve results with students regardless of their current ability. When a student seeks the advice of an instructor, they place their faith, trust and confidence in the teachers ability to accurately diagnose their problem. I evaluate each student's swing and ball fight. I prescribe necessary corrections and communicate them in a simplistic way.

I do not prescribe to any one specific teaching method or approach although I have studied and understand many methods of instruction. I believe that the foundational pre-swing fundamentals are key to building a consistent, reliable and repetitive golf swing. Instead of tearing down the swings of students and building them up from scratch, I work with each student's current abilities and give them a better understanding of what is going on with their swing and how to improve. I utilize the pre-swing fundamentals to achieve improved swing mechanics for lasting results.

By using state of the art video technology, specific training aids, drills and time tested teaching techniques I have been achieving positive results for over 25 years. It is my belief that the golf swing is not created all at once but evolves over time with the student experiences. Through, hard work dedication and understanding, improvement can be permanent. I enjoy building lasting relationships with my students and becoming a mentor and coach to them.
