Ted Davidson Golf Bio


Thank you for the opportunity it's a pleasure to meet you. I'll now explain how my instruction is truly a unique experience. Born in Palm Springs, CA the golf capitol of the world for over 40 years. I learned the golf swing at the age of 13 by Lou Marcouzzo at Reflections CC in La Quinta where they couldn't pay me so Lou taught me the Tour Golf Swing which has benefitted me for a lifetime. He coached numerous players on the PGA Tour which taught me tour player habits at an early age.

I've been playing for 36 years, competitively for 31 and professional for 20 years. I'm now in a fantastic place in my life where I'm injury free and currently working on full-time sponsorship for the PGA Tour. While I was on various tours from 1999-2004 I was sponsored by Dr. Marcus Pride M.D. of the Los Angeles Lakers Organization and LA Sparks, as for also acquiring one tournament win professionally in May of 2001 in Los Angeles.

I turned pro in 1995 at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook, CA where I taught for Golf Digest. I was there for 5 years while I started playing the Pepsi and Nike tour's. I've been fortunate enough to have played and taught at some amazing private clubs. Glenmoor CC in Cherry Hills, Co as well as Plum Creek CC in Castle Pines, Co and have been a member at Canyon Crest CC since 1980.

While being a golf Instructor with John Jacobs, Golf Digest, Nike Golf Schools, Davidson Golf Schools and the other golf facilities that I've taught at and run. I've given over 15,000 golf lessons and each swing is truly different. Working with all of those different people and unique swings it's given me an unlimited database of swing knowledge. With that being said it's those personal relationships and the time with my students that is most memorable. I've been very fortunate in my life with a photographic memory it's enabled me to take instant photos of swings and give immediate feedback to students anywhere in the world.

I love working with people in general and players of all levels. To improve not only there physical game but more importantly their mental approach. A holistic approach that will keep things simple and fun without over complicating the process. A true focus on the basics that will travel with everyone.  Please I invite you to Google me so you can feel assured that you're getting the absolute best instruction as well as first class service.

    I have had only 2 lessons with Ted so far and already have seen amazing changes in my ability to strike the ball with confidence. Ted has a very unique teaching style that not only builds muscle memory but also builds your confidence level which to me is so important in developing a good golf swing. If your struggling with the "what am I doing wrong" question, give Ted the opportunity to evaluate your golf game. You won't be sorry you did. I highly recommend Ted Davidson. A true professional in all aspects of teaching golf

    I live in Trinidad and Tobago and am a member at the toughest country club on the island. I did two years at a golf academy in South Carolina. I'm 23 and I learned more from meeting Ted Davidson, when he came to train at our club, it was amazing watching him work with the younger Olympic Golfers training for Rio . His personality is engaging, he's so knowledgeable wow but he doesn't ever complicate anything, very simple but most of all yes we all in my country got better but the experience was what's most enjoyable. Anyone looking to not only get better but really enjoy the experience, it's not like other professionals. about golf not just the swing but mental approach and

    I'm retired and a member up at Desert Mountain and met ted about 2 years ago up at the club. He started working with me and I'm somewhat new to the game but have an athletic background from professional baseball. I was at the time about a 13 handicap but Ted got me to a 10 in only 10 weeks but more then just the instruction because he's been a professional golfer his mental approach to the game is even more instrumental then the physical. I'm recommending him to as many people during the season as I can, a joy to be around.

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

For over 25 years I've had the same approach with my students and that is to ask the right questions. Come up with a game plan tailored to their specific needs. Keep the process simple with realistic goals and expectations for more game enjoyment.

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

I'm a 24 year PGA Professional as well as a Tour Professional. I've worked for and ran some of the finest golf schools in the world. I'm also a U.S. Army veteran so the structure helps in short and long term planning that's tailored to each students specific talent level and needs.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I price my instruction by the lesson not by the hour with many packages to choose from. Each and every lesson is specifically taylored to the individual student with a focus on that person's own abilities and swing.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in high school when I was 17 in Palm Springs, Ca while on the golf team at Indio High School. I interned at a course and the owner was a world class instructor and was coaching players on the PGA Tour in La Quinta at that time. He taught me the golf swing at 13 years old and I have now given over 17,000 golf lessons in over 30 years all around the world.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all ages, levels, and genders as well as physical talents and learning abilities. I just recently got back to Scottsdale, Az from Trinidad and Tobago where I worked with their Olympic Golfers that went to RIO,Brazil. I focused on mental visualization as well as strategic planning in real life scenarios to help them with full commitment to not only shots but to their visualization of the shot.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Working with and training the Olympic golfers from Trinidad and Tobago in Trinidad for RIO last year in Trinidad. Golf hadn't been in the Olympics for a 100 years. Great honor and experience.

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

Make sure the instructor your looking for for one has a good knowledge of the golf swing. More importantly make sure there's a rapport and chemistry with the instructor. As a student decide wether or not this teacher can help my game short or long term. Please Google me at Ted Davidson Golf, LinkedIn, and Instagram. I look forward to making your golfing experiences Amazing.

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

Definitely check not only knowledge of the game and swing but see if there's a possible chemistry fit. Do some research if a professional has a solid background than start with one lesson before committing to a series. I've been around the best and trained the best all around the world.
