HOW I TEACH THE GAME
Everyone is naturally curious, perceptive, and possesses a remarkable capacity to learn. I work to assist you in reaching deeper levels of understanding and awareness of what you feel and how it affects your golf shots. With that, you develop your ability to hit the shots you desire and effectively coach yourself.
Of course, every golfer can benefit from help to learn faster. I employ an array of tools and techniques to accelerate learning. They are all based on the principle that people use feedback to learn—the more accurate the feedback and the quicker it comes, the faster we learn. That's why I use a collection of tools from effective training aids to video to the industry gold standard in launch monitors, TRACKMAN.
