About William

When Will began teaching in 2008, most of his students were asking for him to fix their swing so they could hit the ball farther. But he knew that wasn't what they really wanted. What they really wanted was to shoot lower scores! As most pro's know, the key to scoring well isn't hitting the long ball. It's learning the REAL game of golf with one simple idea...get the ball in the hole in less tries than the other players. Will took a group of players on the golf course, observed each player's game, developed a specific improvement plan for them and taught them how to practice. The results were phenomenal! His players drop an average of 11 strokes in 10 weeks.

Lessons are fun and in a group setting. This real world experience is what has made the biggest difference. A few strokes here, a few strokes there and before you know it, 10 strokes gone. As promised.

There are Will’s unconventional coaching style has pushed me into my “Ugly Zone”. This is place where I try and fail and try again. Will will mentor you in embracing this mindset. This about improving yourself, and being your own coach.

After our course management session, I played nine holes and shot a 39, by far the best nine I have ever played. I played with confidence and with no emotional flare-ups.

I drive 2 hrs for Will's novel approach to teaching. My mental approach was a serious obstacle to my improvement. With Will's help, I understand the importance of working on my game from inside 100 yards .
