“My teaching philosophy focuses primarily on the fundamentals of the golf swing. With any new student, I pay most of my attention to their grip, posture, ball placement, and body alignment. It has been my experience that most swing-related issues can be corrected by adjusting one or more of these components before addressing the more complex elements of the golf swing. I would consider myself a feel-based instructor that encourages on-course application in conjunction with equal time spent on the practice facilities.”
