About this pro

Over 20 years working in the industry, I am a golf fitness professional TPI certified professional.  The body affects the golf swing and the golf swing affects the body.   When i first meet a new student i screen their body to find out if there are any limitation that may affect their golf swing as well as analyse their swing characteristics.  I then put together a comprehensive routine that involves swing drills and physical exercises to help you play your best golf. 

I have always enjoyed helping people.  I've been fortunate to have played some of the world's most iconic golf courses and golf has taken me across the world.  Growing up in Northern Ireland I was a member at Royal Portrush and Portstewart Golf Clubs, two of the best links courses in the world.  Golf has given me a lot over my life and i love to give back to anyone who is passionate about getting better.

    This was an awesome lesson. Eddie was very nice and informative and gave me some games or drills so that I can keep practicing when I'm not in a lesson. I hope to take another when I'm back in California!

  • Nikolas Parras

    Eddie is the perfect instructor. He’s already helped me so much with the simple parts of my game. Can’t wait to go back!

  • Robert Komenovich

    Working with Eddie has been a great experience. He breaks things down in simple ways and has the knowledge to help fix my swing. He has devised a plan based on my ability and flexibility.

  • Cheryl Rice

    I began my lessons with Eddie having had about 5 lessons with another golf pro. I had only been on the course a couple of times. He showed great patience as I learned many things that were never explained to me. We worked on all aspects of the game and his goal was not only to enhance my technical ability but my enjoyment of the game. We discussed everything from chipping, putting and driving as I progressed in the development of the game. A couple of things went beyond just the lessons on the range: 1.) He lent me books to help me understand the game better, 2.) He always had time to talk about how my game was after a round and 3.) He always had words of encouragement and positive thought when I would see him.

FAQs


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

1st is the Initial interview to find out your Goals

 - How long have you played? 

 - How can I help you? 

 - Whats your handicap? 

 - What are your goals?

 - How often do you play and practice?

 - What other sports do you play?  

2nd is Golf Swing analysis using video. Two main views Down the Target Line and Face on swing views. 

3rd is Collect some data from the Full Swing simulator like Club Face, Club Path, Club speed, Total Distance and link the video to the numbers. 

When making any kind of changes I consider the studen's initial goals first then I hone in on making 2 maybe 3 key areas to work on. 

I always explain the reasons why we are making the changes and will give the student either swing drills or physcial exercises for the student to go and work on it by themselves.  

Follwing up I will email them their swing videos and will create an initial training program for them to follow.

How did you get started teaching?

I started working in the golf business at Westchester Country Club in New York in 2002, learning from some of the best instructors in the country.  

I gained my PGA membership in 2008, my certifications from Titleist Performance Institute in 2009 and 2011 and have spent the past 20 years working at green grass facilities from East coast to West coast. 

I started playing golf when i was five years old.  Originally from Northern Ireland I grew up playing some of the best links courses in the world namely Royal Portrush and Portsewart Golf Clubs.  

I played competitively in New York and New Jersey.  I belive that a great golfer does not necessarily make a great teacher, however you must be a good golfer to be a great teacher.  


What types of students have you worked with?

All types! From a 2 year old to a 92 year old, from a nuclear physicist to an electrician.  I have taught and met a wide variety of people.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Masters is always one of my favorite events.  It kicks of the golf season every year and is the event i watched growing up that really stirred my interest in playing golf.  


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

See who is out there! I would interview instructors and ask them a bunch of questions to see who would be the best fit for them.  We may all be saying the same thing but deliver the message in different ways.  I try to convey the message in the best way for the student.  There are all different types of learners from left/right brain to visual.  I try to encorporate all forms of learning in an easy to follow structure.  


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

What are my goals? 
How am I going to achieve them?
