About this pro

I am a PGA Professional Certified in Teaching and Coaching. I work with a K-Vest Motion Measurment device which allows me quickly identify problems in your swing and train you to get closer to tour player like positions.

I am also TPI certified. Which enables me to find out any movement issues you may have and how they are affecting your golf swing. This allows me to develop an efficient way for each individual to play better golf each day and limit injury risk. 

I get the chance to help people to enjoy the game that I love. It's always worth the hard work to see a student light up when they hit their best shot ever, or hit their first draw, or shoot their personal best round.

    I am an avid golfer but through the years my game has declined with a loss of club head speed and distance. After 4 lessons with Austin I gained 30 yards off the tee and my irons were back to being crisp and compressed. Austin is very knowledgeable about the swing and he communicates it in a way that makes it simple. He improved my chipping, pitching, putting and restored my POWER!!!!!

    I’ve only had the first lesson but Austin kept it simple picked one thing that would really make a marked improvement on my swing that I could focus on over the next week or so before my next lesson. After 24 hours I played nine holes and hit some balls and the concept is clear in my mind I’m able to execute it and when I do the contact and flight of my ball has already improved dramatically!

    Austin is very thorough and innovative with his golf instruction, and I highly recommend Get a Grip Golf for all skill levels. Austin has provided me with the science and mechanics behind a good golf swing, along with drills, which have allowed me to drop 8-10 strokes in the past 3 months. I would highly recommend Austin at Get a Grip Golf.

  • Fred Tuomi

    Austin is the perfect sports/golf instructor and coach. He is an expert tactician who can find the smallest nuance in my swing and quickly correct it. More importantly, his style is very motivating and effective - he is patient yet leads you to be your best and is friendly but also critical of your performance when you need it.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I work with a Launch Monitor give feedback on ball flight and K-Vest Motion Measurement device, which gives feedback on your body's movements. Once set up with this I go through the TPI screening process testing for movement limitations that are correlated to swing errors. After I have made this assesment I watch you swing to see what compensations you have made for such movement problems. I then determine what is priority to improve your golf swing.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

PGA Certified Professional in Teaching and Coaching. 
TPI Level 1 Certified (Currently working through Golf Level 2 and Junior Level 2)

How did you get started teaching?

I started by being a good player as a young kid and having people ask me for tips. This was then fueled by people having success with the changes I made for students and them resulting in many people shooting their personal bests. From that point on I was hooked. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with virtually every level of player from aspiring Tour players down to the Beginner level player who has never swung a club. I have taught approximately 3,000 lessons over the last 6 years. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a teacher who teaches with knowledge and understanding of how you move, not someone who teaches to their preferences to make a "perfect golf swing"

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about how you are going to practice the changes you are going to attempt. Many guided practice platforms with either biofeedback or video practice are available, and that can be the difference between you getting better and not.
