I teach in south Orange County, CA at El Niguel Country Club. We are located 50 miles south of LAX and 40 miles north of Carlsbad, CA. El Niguel CC is a private, member owned facility that welcomes guests for golf instruction. Growing up alongside Justin Leonard, PGA TOUR and Harrison Frazar, PGA TOUR at Royal Oaks Country Club in Dallas, Texas, we all had aspirations of playing professionally. In 1993 through 1995 I attempted playing on the Hogan Tour along side Steve Stricker, PGA TOUR. In 1996 through 1998 I had the privilege of coaching Hunter Haas, WEB.COM TOUR while we were both attaining our bachelor degree in Interpersonal Communications at the University of Oklahoma. My last attempt at playing professionally was in 2004 on the Hooters Tour. All of these experiences, and people involved are partly responsible for my love of teaching the game. I have been teaching for over 20 years and have been affiliated with the PGA of America for just as long. I was introduced to RST through a client of mine on March 15, 2013. When I looked at the method and the belief of the program, RST provided me a substantial support structure with proof to back it up. In short, I have been teaching this technique for years, but now I have more knowledge and a better way to present it to my clients in a consistent manner. I am the Director of Instruction at ENCC. Along with that, I am the Director of the Ladies and Junior programs. Having been here for over 10 years, I am very excited about the future of my clients and how they are truly going to understand how to improve their game.
I enjoy meeting people and assisting them with learning the game we all love to hate. The fact that this game is challenging is what keeps me motivated to teach and help people improve in a systematic way.
Wade is an excellent instructor. He has a tremendous amount of professional experience which he effectively carries over to each period of instruction. His communication, patience and attention to each small detail are the traits that were most noteworthy. Additionally, his use of Trackman as a training aid was extremely helpful. I have already begun to see improvements in my game. I highly recommended Wade’s instruction - it’s a relationship that will truly pay dividends!
Wade has an endless enthusiasm and patience when working with students to improve their skills. He has a knack for communicating instructions to teach me how to move correctly to improve my golf swing and welcomes feedback to reinforce what I take with me from each lesson. Wade has also taught me a great deal about the mental approach to the game in addition to the physical game which I find invaluable. I’ve been fortunate to work with Wade in both group and private instruction and am impressed with his ability to communicate with people of all ages and abilities.
Wade is a fantastic teacher.....instead of confusing you with way to much information he has the ability to focus on 1 or 2 issues. This really helped me focus which made my practice and game improve!!! Take a playing lesson from wade ....it really helped me understand the game and how to navigate the course!!
Wade is dedicated to helping you improve your game. He has a sense of humor and patience, both of which are necessary with an elder duffer like me. We have fun while I learn.
I get to know them and make them feel comfortable with the atmosphere and my style of teaching.
I have been affliliated with the PGA for over 25 years. My training is extensive in biomechanics and teaching people how to move their bodies on purpose. I use Trackman, video, Perfect Putter, 4Dmotion and other training aids to assist with my instruction.
My pricing structure is simple: 45 minutes - $150 for a series of 6 lessons for $720. Playing lessons - $300
I work with juniors, beginners, top amateurs and professionals.
Make sure you like who you hire as your coach/teacher. I tell all my students that if you do not like what your teacher is saying or how they are saying it, go find one you do like.
You would never stay with a docter you didn't like, treat this the same way.
Make sure you have a goal and/or a purpose for seeking instruction. This is not a sport that is learned in 6 weeks. It takes years to learn and years to improve. Take your time and enjoy the ride. Make sure you can commit to yourself so that you can be successful.
