My Approach

Teaching Philosophy

I believe a repeatable 10-20 second pre-shot routine is the foundation for successful golf. Many swing errors are the direct result of improper or lack of a pre-shot routine if you have no plan for a shot it will not go well...With proper fundamentals (grip, posture, ball position, aim, positive attitude ) you will have more consistent results. I have no single method of teaching the golf swing. Each student is an individual, and has differing abilities to learn and improve. I will teach you to be a great ball striker...
I will establish a simple 3 part set up 1-pre shot 60% 2-the shot 20% 3-post shot 20% and then work with you to create the ideal swing for your body type...
My instruction is based on your commitment to practice, I will show you how to practice the right way. PRACTICE WITH A PURPOSE... My opinion is this is where I will separate you from others - if you know how to practice you will get better...

I believe that golf is a unique sport if you know "HOW TO PRACTICE" different lies different swings, on the range, I will teach you how thru good post-round analysis, so you will know what to practice before your next round I will show you how to practice your areas you need to be better with a positive mental attitude P.M.A. I will show you how to transfer what you have learned on the practice range and effectively apply it on the golf course.

15 Golf Lessons that just might Change Your Life...

  • Luck doesn’t exist. Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. Prepare yourself to be the best, and then the opportunity will arise. It doesn’t work the other way around.
  • SLOW DOWN. Rediscover your joy. When you feel a deep sense of relaxation throughout your whole body, you’re reminded of why you love what you’re doing, an unlimited abundance of great shots lie ahead.
  • You control what you think. Don’t get stuck in your head. In the event of a bad shot, you can say things like: “Interesting... It’s unlike me to shoot that way.” By not reacting to any “failure,” you’ll keep your center in check and avoid sabotaging the shots you have ahead.
  • Let go. There is always another shot waiting for you. Your score is directly related to your ability to forget past bad shots and let them go.
  • Talent is a myth. Be consistent. Being consistent with your actions is how you maintain the endurance and the strength to carry yourself where you’re going. Consistency will always reap benefits. Sure, talent can help. But it is not enough. Practice makes you a master. At everything.
  • Practice self-love. Become interested in what nurtures and nourishes you and those around you. When your pre-game routine comes from this place it will lead you into a fabulous round of golf, life, anything...
  • Reflect often. Acknowledge your successes and where you can still grow daily.
  • Breathe. When you breathe freely and relax, you’re able to express your natural gifts and abilities. Breathe. Enjoy the moment.
  • Remember the positive “Cs:” clarity, commitment, confidence. Be clear about your next shot; visualize the target and the shot you want to execute. Be committed to that shot; gather all your energy and direct it to create what you’ve visualized. Be confident about your shot; trust your swing and the power of what you’ve set yourself up for.
  • Release the negative “Cs:” compare, complain, criticize. These three Cs are the poison of your spirit. They drain your energy, and are a sure pathway to failure. When you discipline yourself to stop, you’ll be well on your way toward success on and off the green.
  • Take 100 percent responsibility. You are not a victim of the course, of the wind, or of the rules of golf. The more you’re peaceful and centered, the more you will post a low score. Take responsibility for what’s going on in your life and peace will follow.
  • You are AMAZING. Always come from a mentality of amazingness. From this state, you won’t be able to buy into a scarcity mentality, which is especially vital when the stakes are high. You are the best possible player you can be at this moment in time.
  • Play with your heart. Reside in the strength of your heart in every situation. Send the ball to the hole with the intention and energy of your heart. Love the ball, love the clubs, love it all. Be a heart-warrior, and no obstacle will stop your heart from beating.
  • Trust the process. Success is about the process, not the end product. Keep your focus on what you can control, and your score will follow.
  • Smile. Golf is just a game, and so is life. Both have moments that feel very serious, but the reality is, everything moves on. This moment — this game — won’t last forever. If you’re not taking every opportunity to enjoy yourself, what’s the point?
