Byron has been playing and teaching golf for over 25 years. He is a former All-American, Team Captain, and MVP of the UCLA Golf Team. After a successful amateur career he went on to play professionally for 10 years on the Nationwide, Asian, South American and Golden State Tours Byron has been incorporating his extensive knowledge of golf to instruct his students, of all skill levels and playing abilities, for over 10 years.
Having been a student of golf for many years himself, he enjoys the challenge of communicating his instruction with his students in a way that helps them internalize how to make the right changes to improve their game.
Byron is a great teacher! Not only is he very helpful and professional, he also has advanced technology tools he uses that will make anyone better at their game (beginner or advanced). He is also great with young players.
I am a complete and total beginner when it comes to golf. My husband absolutely refuses to teach me how to play - he tells me that it's best not to have significant others teach each other how to do stuff regarding sports. (I think he thinks that I might cramp in on his guy time). I've been to the range a few times, but I couldn't seem to get the ball past the 50 yd flag. (That, and there have been a few times where the ball will catapult into the little walls that are around the mats...I've had to yell "duck" a few times)...But I digress. Byron has taught me how to actually hit the ball forward. I am now lobbing it clearly over 100 yards, and my grip on my clubs isn't white-knuckle tight. Yes, I know that it's not much, but again, I am a clear cut beginner, and Byron has me wanting to continue to play. He works in a great facility in Martinez called Power Endurance, and his set up is state of the art. I've seen a few of the other people he's been teaching, and they look like they're learning a lot. Looking at his little snippet on their website (trainpe.com), he has quite the pedigree in golf: Former NCAA All-American UCLA Golf Team Captain UCLA Golf Team MVP Teaching lessons over 25 years But what I like about him is he makes me feel comfortable with my game, and his suggestions on how to improve it have really helped.
In a world of mediocre golf instructors, Byron stands out as incredible. I’ve had a lot of different golf coaches over the years and I’ve never had one that could explain the swing so clearly and help me apply simple changes to achieve big results. He’s able to see the myriad of mistakes in my swing, ignore the ones that won’t really help me, and instead identify the one change that will help me the most. The fact that he has a history of performing well as a tour pro means he is not just another “academic” teaching pro who learned the game through classes. And best of all, Byron is a great guy who is fun to work with and makes the process of improving your game fun. Whether you are just learning to play golf or are a scratch player, I highly recommend working with Byron on your game!
Beginner to professional.
I think it’s important to find a teacher that has competed at a high level. There are very few good teachers that don’t have a successful playing background.
