Dan’s approach to coaching is to seamlessly blend technical skill and swing development with mental, emotional, social, and other key skills that help produce a COMPLETE player. Dan calls his approach TOTAL game coaching and believes that complete golfer development can only come from a blend of the following: group peer-based (team) coaching, extensive on course experiences, regular tournament play, and individual lessons. Dan specializes in helping players learn naturally vs. having them copy endless positions & movements that most traditional golf instruction relies on. Dan’s main objective is to turn his players into their own best coach that truly understand every facet of what makes them great!
Dan also has a growing following on YouTube with his unique swing product called "The PRO", which stands for Precise Rotational Orbit. The PRO is a simple swing device that helps players learn the physics and the "essence" of the golf swing which makes learning the golf swing much, much easier. Dan's growing content on YouTube helps players learn the physics of the swing in a simple and digestible manner for golfers of all ability levels!
