    Personal Teaching Philosophy: Ever wonder why you can't improve, or do what you’ve been told to do?  It’s because you are trying to fit a mold or model. There is NO ONE WAY to swing a club; you have YOUR way to swing consistently, based on what YOUR body allows you to do, not what a Tour Pro does. Using the latest technology (V1 video, Boditrak pressure mat, KVest, Flightscope radar launch monitor) everyone, from BEGINNER to ELITE golfer, can learn to play well.  None of my students swing the same way, which is why they all succeed ON THE COURSE, not just the range. We will spend time in the practice area making you swing better.  And then we will take it out on the course - yes, the course - to see if you PLAY BETTER too.

    Personal Teaching Philosophy: While there are numerous ideas on how to swing a golf club, I believe the most effective way is to swing the golf club by its design.  A major part of the golf club's design is its LIE ANGLE.  It's this angle that creates the plane angle of the swing, what the clubhead's arc should prescribe.  When the student swings on the correct plane, the clubhead will swing correctly through the ball and turf resulting in the desired trajectory, accuracy and distance.

    Personal Teaching Philosophy: 

    There are two key words that I will continue to use, “Trust” and “Patience”.  You must always TRUST what you are doing to accomplish a desired result.  There cannot be any doubt or lack of confidence as to what type of shot you want to pull off.  To understand this point you must have a tremendous amount of PATIENCE.  We all want to improve, but we must allow for some bumps along the way.  If a person is going through a swing change they must accept the fact it will not happen overnight.  But through PATIENCE and TRUST a player can improve significantly if hard work is put in.
