My teaching philosophy is one that revolves around Balance and Tempo. The golf swing is a combination of motor skills, individual pieces blended together combined with balance and tempo. Balance has far more influence on the outcome of your golf shot than any other factor. I will help you find and maintain your balance and tempo which will give you the best opportunity to enjoy this great game.
Basically I believe that:
• Golf needs to be fun and enjoyable.
• There can be a correct and different swing for each individual and when practiced and developed correctly, it can become repetitive and successful for that individual.
• Practice and swing drills are the key to golf success, however, practice does not make perfect! Perfect practice makes perfect and permanent.
• The mental aspect of Golf is as vital to learning
