Student - Centered. I work with students as individuals to achieve an enjoyment of the game, while considering factors such as physical abilities/limitations and the student's short term and long term goals.
Understand Your Golf Swing. I give you the knowledge necessary to help you understand your golf swing, and give you the tools to help you help yourself.
Fun. I believe in a focused teaching session, but I always strive to make it fun.
Minimal Homework!I send you home with a lesson summary and a drill to help further your understanding of your swing. (not really homework!).
