USGTF Certified

Easiest Swing in Golf Coach

Golf is a simple game played by complicated people. My job is to simplify the swing so the player can get out of his or her way and just play the game. 

If there is anything better than the look on a students face when they hit that perfect shot I haven't found it.

    I originally posted a request on searching for someone to help me work on my putting for a professional miniature golf tournament (you read that correctly) and Robert was the only person to enthusiastically respond with a YES. As silly as my request may sound, the fundamentals of putting that Robert reviewed with me instantly allowed me to shave around 8 strokes off my game. I was ready to switch putters until he taught me how to properly use the one already had. He is a gifted and humorous teacher who has the ability to coach anyone. I cannot recommend Robert highly enough to anyone looking to improve there game and have a good time in the process. THANK YOU ROBERT!!!!

    Robert is fantastic. He puts tips training into easy terms and mixes in some humor to keep the lesson light. Highly recommend.

    Finally!!! a lesson from someone who doesn't over complicate things, keeps it fun and has a great sense of humor. I've been struggling with hitting off the heel of the club for a while now, and after one hour with Robert, I was hitting it straight and felt confident that I would strike the ball properly. I highly recommend him to anyone trying to better their game. See you next week Robert!
