Professional Golf Instruction

4.9Exceptional(53 reviews)


I have been instructing professionally for 19 years. I have instructed all ages and skill levels with great success. My focus is on the fundamentals of golf to ensure the student learns the basics. For more advanced students I work on swing flaws and the proper technique to correct them. I have successfully taught over 3000 lessons in the past 5 years. I have the following skill sets as an experienced professional: Experience teaching all levels of golf skills and ages; Ability to communicate effectively all aspects of the game; Knowledge of the order in which fundamentals should be taught; Experience diagnosing and understanding students' weaknesses and strengths; Ability to make the game of golf interesting and fun.

See a smiling face on a student after a very successful lesson is my ultimate enjoyment of instructing.

Don is very instrumental about teaching the game of golf in such a way that I could fully comprehend and retain the information that he was showing me. His knowledge of the game and his teaching technique was easy for me to grasp. I fully recommend him to anyone of any age that wants to learn the game of golf!

Frequently asked questions

The student has goals and objectives.  My task is to discover those from my initial interview and design the training to meet those objectives.  For a beginning golfer I start with the basics to ensure the student can advance to a higher level. For the more advanced golfer we train to understand swing errors and the process to correct the errors.

I have had a love for golf for many years. In 2003 when I left an Information Technology  management position and retired from  the Arizona National Guard I made a conscious decision to work in a field I loved. I have not been disappointed and have had many rewarding experiences since then.

I have worked with students from ages 3 to 83.  In that range there have been beginning students who never touched a golf club to students who have played for many years and are trying to improve to make their game more enjoyable.

Recently I instructed a student who was a good golfer. On championship courses he would generally shoot in the low 80's.  After 3 lessons he shot a 75 at Seville. It was his best round ever. He then went on to win his flight at the Seville senior championship with a 77-76.  I have been been instructing a junior for 9 years who now has a full ride golf scholarship to a Division I University.

A perspective student should acquire background information on the instructor.  Lessons handles this very well by showing the number of times an instructor was hired on Lessons and reviews to represent the quality of their work. Over the past five years I have taught over 3000 successful lessons.
