About Todd

Teaching Bio Philosophy:

Over many years of not only taking lessons; but giving them as well I have come to realize that fundamentals are essential. In golf it is very basic: grip, stance, alignment, posture, and balance. This 5 simple componence all attribute to keeping the game of golf fun and enjoyable.

Golf is not a game of perfect, but perfecting our own individuality as we all have limitations. The better we understand ourselves keeping these primary fundamentals the better chance we have to improve!

Lastly, “the best offense is a better defense”. This means concentrating on the Short Game will only enhance anybody’s ability to play the long game!
