My goal is to help you become a better golfer, have more fun, and improve your skills. We will set a game plan to get you playing your best golf. Being a match-up teacher, I will try to fit you into a swing that works best for you and your body, I teach the person, not a certain swing. I don’t want to force a golfer into a position that they cannot physically do, or that does not work with their body type. The more comfortable and relaxed the person is the better chances they have on being successful. Grip, Aim, and Set-up are three of the most important things to me and will help create a good shot. These 3 fundamentals I will press to make sure it is understood by the student and easy to repeat each swing.
