Teaching Philosophy

I believe that the most important part of my teaching philosophy is developing a relationship with each and every student. To do this requires a detailed understanding of their golfing goals. Understanding these goals allows me to develop a teaching game plan that gives the student the most return from the lesson.

My teaching philosophy has been developed over the past 35 years. During that time I have learned about playing the game as a player and as a observer from some of the greats. I have spent countless hours studying the best players in the world and continue to do so. Putting these findings into real life situations throughout my 18 year teaching career has led to my current teaching beliefs. The foundation of my philosophy is to always push myself to learn new concepts, strategies, and techniques that will enhance the student’s experience.

I approach each and every lesson with the notion that this is the most important lesson I have ever given. The care and effort to improve my clients is always at the highest level. Understanding how best to convey the message is paramount to the overall success of the student. The goal is to create a more informed motivated client who craves to learn and improve to the utmost level.
