My teaching philosophy focuses on the fundamentals: grip, address, and alignment. Eighty percent of most problems golfers experience are found here. I am also an advocate of green to tee. I will focus on the putting skills first. Why the green? On a par 4, half your shots will be on the green. The most underrated shot is the putt. Once you build enough confidence, we will then move just off the green and work on your chipping skills. Being able to get up-and-down to save par (or at worse, bogey) will improve your score. We will progressively move back to pitch and full swing. The last thing we will tackle is the driver. That club (which most will spend nearly a mint on) is the hardest club to hit in your bag.
I have been using this stragedy for two years now and have seen great results with my students. Contact me if you would like an evaluation and/or lesson.
