Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Helping my student who previously did not make her golf team join the varsity team this year. Watched her work hard for 8 months and it was an honor to wath it pay off.


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

Dont be afraid to get some lessons it helps trust me. it always helps to have a second set of eyes to fine tune the swing i have witnessed big changes from something as simple as fixing posture.


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

Be realistic on expectations and goals. one 6 lesson series will not make you a scratch golfer, so make sure to have your coach look at the foundation of your swing (grip, set-up, posture) a lot of students and instructors dont spend enough time on the foundation.
