      Teaching philosophy

      “I don’t have one set teaching philosophy, I believe we all have different body types and different strengths and weaknesses, therefore we all can’t swing the same. That being said, there are 3 things we can all focus on every time we practice/play: Grip, Posture, and Balance. Whether you’re a beginner, or a scratch golfer, I believe you should spend 2/3 of your time working on your scoring clubs (the money clubs I like to call them). 100 yards and in. The best players in the world hit the ball well some days, and poorly others, but they always putt and chip well.”

      Teaching Philosophy

      My teaching philosophy has developed through my different teaching certifications, as well as influences from the philosophies of Harvey Penick, Bob Toski and Ben Hogan. The basis for my teaching is to develop sound fundamentals for a repeatable swing. I achieve this through the use of drills and technology suited to each student, developing a combination of mechanics and feel. I strive to take a simplistic approach, while at the same time educating the student on their own swing so they have the confidence and skill to enjoy the lifelong sport of golf.
