My teaching philosophy consists of helping each and every student to understand their own golf swing. I make sure each student clearly understands what is going on within their swing, both what they are doing well and what needs to be improved in order to meet the students goals. With this understanding, changing things within their setup or swing motion is much easier. I teach this in a simple and easy to understand process. I will use computer video analysis to show each student their swing and what needs to be changed in order to improve. After understanding the changes that need to be made, we will work on the range or the course to change the actual motion of their golf swing in order to hit better shots.
I have been fortunate to have been taught how to teach golf by some of the best teachers in the United States and the World. When I was just 10 years old I started taking lessons from Ed Oldham (Colorado Teacher of the Year and Top 100 teacher), Ed has helped shape my teaching philosophy into what it is today.
Along with Ed’s help, I have been taught extensively by the PGA. In order to become a PGA Golf Professional you must pass extensive tests on the fundamentals of the golf swing and ball flight laws.
I have also been to several of the PGA Teaching Summits, these seminars are put on by the PGA and consist of the best teachers in the world sharing their secrets to teaching golf. Teachers such as Butch Harmon, Hank Haney, Jimmy Ballard, Jim Flick, and Jim Hardy share how they teach both beginners all the way up to the best players in the world such as Tiger Woods. These summits are invaluable for teachers trying to improve their teaching abilities.
