Hi,  My name is Bryan. I've played competitive golf for the last over 20 years. I'm currently 32 years old and play to a +3. I love the game and am passionate about helping others achieve their goals - whether you are just interested about beginning the game and learning the fundamentals, or a more seasoned veteran player seeking to hone their skills to reach a more competitive level. I've learned the game through my own studying. And, I've been fortunate to have interacted with some of the best coaches and teachers in the world. Fun fact - I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon on the range with Gary Player.  I'm attentive, patie ... View Profile

I will work with your swing while changing it piece by piece slowly, so it's not confusing to the student getting the lesson. I will put in place a pre shot routine, to ensure proper ball placement and address is all in the correct position. I'm really good at analyzing what's wrong in anyone's golf swing. If there is room for improvement I will definitely find it. I don't give advice just to give it, if I'm not willing to do it myself. I will guarantee you will hit the ball more consistently and farther then before.    I am a Head Golf Coach for The First Tee of Contra Costa County and also The Head Coach for Clayton Valley Charter ...

I started in golf at age eleven as a country club caddy.  I was asked to caddy for one of Greatest Women Golfers in the World, she won the tournament and told the Head Pro that she won because I could read the breaks in the greens so well. The tournament was four days long.  Her name was Babe Didrickson Zaharias.  Her kind words about me gave me the inspiration to continue sharing my abilities in golf to others.

"Master" Golf Teaching Professional

Walt Abraham · Walnut Creek, CA


What or who inspired you to start teaching?

I was a very good golfer from the very start, but what started me teaching was when my oldest son wanted to play High School Golf after his Sophomore Year. That Summer I worked with him and several of his friends on the golf swing and it was a very rewarding experience. Then a year later, I was getting ready to play in a Senior Tour Monday Qualifier, when Chi Chi Rodriquez was kind enough to give me a tip on a fairway sand shot without me asking. Those two incidents fueled my inspiration for teaching golf and giving back to the game.

Tell us about your passion for teaching

I studied several prominent golf instructors before settling on a teaching method. While there were many to choose from, Butch Harman was my choice, as he taught a very simplistic swing that was very repeatable. His success with Tiger Woods when he turned Pro and his continued success with Ernie Ells and Ricky Fowler only solidifies that choice.

After Passing 3 playing ability tests, written tests, performance tests as well as shot ability tests for the USGTF and the PGA, I became a Certified Master Teaching Professional for the USGTF (United States Golf Teachers Federation). I love the fact I am able to impart the knowledge I have gained to my golfing students. The variety of people that I meet is a wonderful cross section of America and it keeps me inspired to help each and every one reach their individual goals and potential.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with Students of all levels. The youngest being just 5 to the oldest who had just turned 81. The students have ranged for beginners to those who have had collegiate golf careers and I have helped Professionals as well. I have coached and taught Country Club Champions, a Collegiate Team Capitan and several High School League MVP's. My teaching philosophy is to teach the entire game, from full swing, short game to course management. Once I assess a person's performance level I work with them to improve and to realize their goals by improving on all aspects of their golfing experience. Seeing my students improve and have more enjoyment of the game of golf is a great reward and keeps me wanting to do more. More teaching and even more learning so I can be even a better teacher for those students in the future.

What advice would you give aspiring students?

When I speak to potential students there are a couple of things that I try to impart to them regarding lessons and golf. One is to have realistic expectations and those can be jointly agreed to by the teacher and student and secondly be committed to making the improvements. Don’t take one lesson, but rather take a series of lessons over several months and commit to the work it takes to improve. Set goals with your Instructor and monitor your progress, it's not just about score ( although that is one measurement) but also your consistency and enjoyment when you are on the course.
