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.
