About Ben

Here is a little information on how I can help you take control of your golf game:


There is no question that today's technology has helped create a better understanding of the golf swing and gives the every day golfer a better program to track their progress.

Every Student will have access to:

Learning Cause and Effect for Best Results

It is my belief that until a student fully understands what causes certain shots (slice, hook, fat shot, thin shot) they will never be able to make adjustments to play their best golf. I teach by providing cause and effect and a full explanation of why we will work on certain items. I want my students to become self-sufficient and be able to make adjustments when they are on their own. Whether playing in a national competition or a weekend round with their best friends I want my students to play their best!

Purposeful Planning to Achieve Personal Golfing Goals

Whether your golfing goal is to compete at the highest level, win your club championship, stop the slice, increase driver distance, get the ball airborne, impress a significant other or just play this wonderful game for the very first time, I will put together a plan to help you achieve that goal.
