As a PGA Professional and Teaching Professional, I am committed to
helping the student achieve a greater enjoyment of the game. It is
my responsibility, as an instructor, to ensure that every student
attain the knowledge and skill level that they are capable. In order
to achieve the best results, I use an assortment of tools and techniques
because not all students learn the same way. Educating the student on the
how's and why's and not just the do's and don'ts is also fundamental to
my philosophy. Whether I am working with a novice just being introduced
to the game, or someone training for high level tournament play, my
experience, knowledge and techniques can help any student realize his/her
Communication between the student and the instructor is essential. In
as much as the student needs to feel at ease and give feedback to the instructor,
I need to assess the abilities and capabilities of each student individually and
teach the student in a way he/she will understand. People learn new tasks
differently and because of that, there are three forms of teaching I use in
every lesson: HEAR IT, SEE IT, FEEL IT. I first talk through the new technique
that is being taught, giving the student of what their hand, arm and body positions
should be and the philosophy of why. Next, I demonstrate the technique as I, again,
talk through the positioning of my hands, arms and body. Lastly, I help the student
get into the correct position, and "move" them through the golf swing as I talk them
through the positioning of their hands, arms and body. The fastest way to improve the
golf swing is to stimulate the student's auditory, visual and kinesthetic senses.
Tools, such as a digital computer video is used to help enhance the learning
experience. What you "feel" like you are doing often is not the case once viewed
on computer video. "Feel and real" must be the same to play consistent golf.
Swing development or change requires practice along with professional guidance
to keep you on the path to better golf. Practicing correctly with prescribed swing
drills will help ensure this is accomplished. Practice creates repetition and repetition
brings about change.
I believe there is no one particular way to swing a golf club. Strength, flexibility,
body type, and athletic ability, along with determination and desire, are important
components that will allow you to become the best golfer you can be. I look forward to
helping you achieve your goals.
