I was a former Tour player and over the past 10 years have devoted my time and energies to studying and teaching the mechanics of the golf swing. I show my students how to effectively use their body and club to produce an efficient and effective golf swing. I have experience with teaching players of all levels from beginner to tour-level, men and women.
I refine/build a student’s swing on a step-by-step basis using a simple approach to make the task a student is trying to execute very clear. My students have had great success and improvement.
I love helping my students get better at their game but even more, I love seeing how their improvement and the challenge of the sport touch their soul as they improve.
David was very knowledgeable and has an easy going sort of approach - helped me a lot in just one lesson!
Connected well with David. He identified some set up issues that immediately produced positive results. Will reach out in a few weeks for another lesson.
If you really want to improve your golf game and you want more than Band-Aid fixes to your swing faults, David Huffman should be your instructor of choice. In 2014 I took the advice of a young man aspiring to become a professional golfer – I made a leap of faith and travelled from VA to Phoenix AZ for a week of lessons with David. The trip was a huge success as I learned more about a good golf swing and how to execute it than I had ever learned before. David knows how to work a student through a progression of achievements, building all the time toward a better and better swing. Unlike most instructors, he has a knack for identifying root causes of swing faults and helping to correct them in the context of his general teaching – rather than simply treating effects. Through his teaching I have learned to hit a ball more solidly and consistently than I ever have before. I made a return trip in 2015 for further instruction. If you want to improve your game, David is the man to help you achieve your goals.
I started taking lessons with David Huffman a couple of years ago. Right from the first lesson I was impressed with David's knowledge and his understanding of the golf swing. He is the first instructor I have had that truly understands the golf swing and is able to pass that information along. My golf game improved more after a few lessons with David that it had in the previous 30 years of lessons. My golf game is continuing to improve now that I have a much better understanding of the golf swing. I highly recommend David for any ability of golfer.

As a player working on my own game, I found that I had a great interest in understanding the game and a passion for teaching.
I work and have worked with all ages and levels. I currently have men and women ages 35-75 as regular students. I also have 12-18 year olds and professional golfers. The handicaps of my students range from +4 to 30.
Don't look for a "deal". The better, more successful the coaches message and methods, the more value the coach.
