My teaching philosophy is to never stop learning from the best teachers in the world. I love going to the PGA Coaching & Teaching summit in Orlando Florida in the Winter and spend as much time as I can going to education seminars to advance my golf instruction knowledge.

Charlie uses the American Athletic Development Model with PGA Coach to coach players throughout the season. Charlie has worked with some of the best Fitness professionals in the nation to help develop a holistic approach to golf instruction.

He has worked with Damon Shelton of Method Athlete in Scottsdale Arizona, Dr. Mark Smith in Palm Spring California, and Ryan Overturf of The Move Project in Dallas Texas.

Some of the PGA tour players Charles had the privilege to watch Randy Smith work with include.

Justin Leonard, Ryan Palmer, John Rollins, Gary Woodland, Harrison Frazar, Matt Weibring, Martin Flores, Colt Knost and a few more.

During his time working with Method Athlete in Scottsdale he got to work out with Paul Casey.

Charlie also had the honor and privilege to observe a 2 day golf school at the Butch Harmon Golf School.
