About Vincent

Vince Lazar PGA White Hawk Country Club Teaching Professional Bio INTRODUCTION: I have recently completed my 24th season as the head men’s and women’s golf coach at DePauw University. I have returned home this summer to my “Region” roots to spend more time with family. Typically during the summer I am teaching at various camps around the country but due to COVID, the opportunity at White Hawk allows me to expand my teaching to players of all levels. As an instructor, my teaching philosophy is to learn about your athletic background, do a physical evaluation and then help you set goals as a golfer. I will observe you as a golfer either on the driving range or on the course, then use a variety of teaching aids to provide you feedback in an effort to allow for the most efficient means of learning. I use both Trackman and video analysis to help you learn, along with more traditional modes of instruction. As a former NCAA D1 collegiate player and PGA professional I also understand and implement mental strategies used commonly in Sport Psychology.
