About Chandler

A Bay Area resident for over 30 years, Chandler has 30 years of golf experience with 10 years teaching at the professional level beginning at Green Valley Country Club in Fairfield, CA.

Chandler’s teaching philosophy emphasizes the importance of a correct grip, posture, and setup while incorporating concepts and ideas regarding swing plane and impact position from the minds of Dave Pelz, Butch Harmon, Mike Adams, Bob Toski, Jim Hardy, Martin Chuck, Tim Mahoney, Dave Stockton, and Harvey Penick.

Chandler teaches using TrackMan 4 technology offering dual camera angles with instant replay of your swing from face-on and down the line. Every shot from your session is saved in your TrackMan account along with all of your videos and TrackMan data. Shot dispersion charts, trajectory lines, and voice-over screen-cast reviews are included with every session. Cause and effect is clearly explained using immediate visual feedback.

Had one lesson with Trackman from Chandler. Of the dozens of lessons I have taken over the years none have come even close to the lesson from Chandler. The combination of Chandler and Trackman is awesome!

Carl K


Chandler runs a great instruction session. The information he provides via trackman is very important. The he uses that information to to help you improve your swing. Very good instructor!

Tom M


I have been playing golf since I was young and this was the first time I've had instructions and wish I would have got instructions sooner. The technology that he has is awesome with instant feedback with two cameras.
