MOTIVATION

INNOVATION

TRUST

You see I am an Artist, the sky is my canvass, the club or racquet is the brush, the ball is the paint, and if you work with me each shot you hit will be a Masterpiece!

I offer encouragement and support to the inexperienced.  I am never hard, punishing or intrusive.  If you've never played golf or tennis I am the coach for you as I have a patient step by step approach.  You'll learn all the core fundamentals, terminology, rules, and of course etiquette.

Outdoors rewarding fun when you see a flower bloom.  Skillful golf or tennis is created slowly and carefully.  The approach I teach is feeling and movement and equanimity all wrapped up in balance.

    Kevin is an outstanding coach who I have been working with the last 4 months. I had stopped playing golf for about ten years and he helped me rediscover my swing and the love of the sport. He is patient, personable, flexible, detail oriented, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of golf.

FAQs


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

Pressure based game simulation training sessions that prep you for competitions.  My goal is to bring cheer to your progress.  You will become armed with a good basic knowledge of your game.  However, you must be tenacious.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Certified Pro with over 17 years of experience playing USTA 5.0 tournaments and pepsitour golf tournaments.  


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

 $45 per hour or discounted 6 hour private lesson package $220, 12 hour lesson package $425.

All Major Credit cards are accepted.


How did you get started teaching?

Competing, playing and practicing daily for two decades has lead to a mastery of both tennis and golf.  Both sports are part of my life.  Warm feelings and closeness with them remains steady when everything else around me is in constant flux.


What types of students have you worked with?

Beginners,  intermediates, and advanced players from 4yrs to 94 yrs young.  Parts of their game has been neglected or needs to be corrected.  We will spend first lesson on completely understanding what you are doing wrong, next lesson on practicing the correction, then we spend the next 4 lessons on alert to ensure the old habit doesn't creep back.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Christmas Corporate Cisco group playing lesson outing for team building at Bridges in san ramon was a Blast!  Everyone remembered to rely on the exceptional ability part of their game.


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

Look for applicable experience, personality, and demo ability.  Hire someone that loves the game and can truly help you regain your confidence so that the wheels don't come off again.  


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

Do they have the perseverance and time commitment to truly grasp two of the most complex sports ever invented.  Have you been leaning on your weaknesses as an excuse for not seeing a professional and finally doing something about your game? This leads to unavoidable trouble treading on dangerous ground, your eventual potential eruption will be quite noticeable and hazardous.
