Teaching skills have come mostly from own experiences and having associations with some well known PGA Teachers. Jim Lucius and Butch Harmon to name a couple. There are several more. Expertise in teaching is mostly oriented to the average player, but Bernhard Langer remembers, I'm sure, a shot I helped him with. Jim has helped players of all categories, and have no favorites in that respect. Teaching is a very gratifying experience, not only in golf but many other subjects as well. To be good at teaching or anything, you must experience it. You must also be a good listener.
