Teaching Philosophy:
  • It's important to find a natural motion the player can repeat.
  • The fewer changes, the better.
  • My teaching philosophy can be summed up with this phrase, borrowed from my mentor Peter Kostis: "There is no one swing that fits every golfer, but every golfer needs one swing." 
  • Golf swings are like fingerprints, no two are exactly alike. Each player is unique and must be taught accordingly.
  • I need to understand my student's intentions before I can coach them in a positive direction.
  • Trust and mutual respect are key ingredients to a successful long-term relationship.
  • I am not a method teacher
Teaching Principles: 
  • Solid Contact
  • Create Ball Speed
  • Grip of the club is slightly in front of the clubhead at impact
  • Head is behind the ball at impact
  • Weight is predominantly on the front foot at impact
  • For a right-handed golfer, there is no lateral motion outside the right foot during the backswing. The right hip turns inside the right foot.
  • The feet use the ground for resistance and leverage.
  • The downswing begins from the ground up.
  • The legs and arms both straighten and lengthen as a critical part of the striking motion. This extension of the legs and arms is a power source.
  • The clubface should remain square to the swing arc as much as possible. Excessive clubface rotation reduces consistency and solid contact.
