Teaching Philosophy
“After establishing a basic understanding of grip, posture, and alignment all aspects of the golf swing should revolve around the idea of “efficient motion”.  Every movement in the golf swing needs to have a purpose to improve consistency without compromising the potential of clubhead speed.  As a teacher of the golf swing, my goal is to make your swing as simple as it can be physically as well as mentally.  With the use of teaching aids, individualized exercises and stretches, visualization and establishing a “common language” we will work together to determine steps to help you achieve your golfing goals.”

Teaching Philosophy
“My goal is to enhance my students playing ability and overall enjoyment of the game by teaching a swing fitted to their own unique characteristics and capabilities.  I believe the success of a good swing always starts pre-swing with the fundamentals of grip, posture and alignment.  Next I teach swing path and club face angle that will allow you for the most consistent shots.  Weather your goal is to have more enjoyment playing the game or to lower your handicap.  I give my students the appropriate instruction to achieve their goals.”
