Teaching Philosophy and Lesson rates

IMG_0336

Golf is a very unique game for each individual and I teach it that way.   There is not “one” single way to play the game and many different styles can be successful.  This is true for full swing striking as well as short game techniques.  

I strive to get the most out of each students potential based on their physical stature, athletic ability, student goals and time they will dedicate to the game.   Using state of the art technology and adhering to proven fundamentals, I customize my approach for each student.  The challenge for most students and coaches like myself are to find and prioritize what is best for their game and to filter out the overload of golf information that most golfers are subjected to.  

Among the famous instructors of our time, I would say that my teaching and coaching style closest resembles Butch Harmon.  He has a great way of bring out the best in his students by shaping and improving a player’s natural motion while keeping things simple for them.  I believe this is the key to real, lasting results; keeping things as simple as possible and sticking to the game plan.

    Fran, thanks for all the advice yesterday. I want to build a program with you beginning with a one hour lesson. I need to work on my swing, then the last 100 yards, then putting, then sand. Then next we’ll do a 9 hole live action lesson. Regards, Tom
