About Sean

Since 1991, PGA Professional Sean McGowan has enjoyed teaching golfers young and old the fundamentals and intricacies of the game and the swing. Teaching the short game has always been Sean's specialty and much of his instruction is on the golf course to help his students understand the importance of how the lie of the golf ball determines contact. Every swing is different, and how you make contact on the slopes of the golf course is more important than making a perfect strike on the flat surface of the range. Impact-based-learning is the basis for Sean McGowan's dynamic swing instruction. By working with Sean, you will have a clearer picture of how to hit your next shot and enjoy playing golf more than ever.
