Teaching Philosophy: 


“My philosophy about teaching golf is pretty simple.  Everyone has his or her own “unique” way of swinging the golf club. I will help you develop that swing through basic fundamentals that establishes a sound and solid basis for swinging the golf club.  It is through the fundamentals of grip, aim, posture, ball position, rhythm, balance and finish, that the student will place themselves in a position for success.  It is these seven areas that all good players are able to repeat, ultimately leading to a repeatable golf swing. The golf swing is a simple motion that needs to be conveyed and taught in simple terms”.
