Teaching Philosophy

Once you feel an effortless swing using your body in the most efficient way possible, you'll never be satisfied with anything less. Watching my students experience this is what drives me to continue to understand our bodies and the golf swing to an even greater detail. Being able to help a student do something they didn't think was possible, is the pinnacle of teaching. Once we understand cause and effect, the real learning and enjoyment of the game will take off.
