TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Keep it simple! PGA—Posture, Grip, Aim

My lessons cover grip, swing mechanics, woods, irons, short game and course management. I encourage each student to play their own game and to stay within their limits. Clubs are provided for lessons, if necessary. Club Fitting and Club Repair is also available at the Pro Shop.

TIP OF THE MONTH:

Driving:  Make it simple.   Keep your head still and stay behind the ball.   Make sure you have good,
light grip pressure.   Don’t choke the club.   Do not think about hitting the ball, think about making a good swing!
