FAQs


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

I follow the GASP teaching method. With the proper GRIP, a correct AIM, a solid Stance, And an athletic POSTURE your CONFIDENCE will grow as your scores go DOWN  

Inckuded are short lessons on Course Management and Mental Visualization. By mentally seeing the swing/shot you want to hit and hitting it with determination you will improve your overall game
