Chip Inks Golf
I am an award-winning PGA Golf Professional with over 30,000 private and group lessons taught since 1995.
I enjoy helping my students learn how to play better golf. I use the same passion in every lesson with my students as I had when I first started playing golf over 40 years ago. Since then, I have played both as an amateur and as a professional. No matter what your golf experience may be, I guarantee we all have two things in common. We all desire to shoot lower scores and have more fun playing golf!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I have played both as a professional and as an amateur. No matter what your golf experience may be, I guarantee we all have one thing in common. We all desire to shoot lower scores!
I believe the key to shooting lower scores is to learn how to be more consistent with every club in the bag. I have taught over 30,000 private lessons from beginners to professionals. By successfully coaching hundreds of students, I have valuable experience and knowledge in teaching the proper fundamentals and techniques that are necessary to help lower your scores.
The key to obtain this goal begins with understanding consistently cause and effect. The first step in achieving this is to have a good foundation. By learning how to have the proper setup, position and alignment, we will build from the ground up a more consistent golf swing. Which in return will begin the proper foundation in understanding how we need to implement a change with your “cause and effect.”
The next step for consistency is to learn how to “Practice with a Purpose.” If you practice with the incorrect fundamentals of the swing, then you are practicing incorrectly. Learning how to practice correctly with proper instruction is the only way you are going to make outstanding progress and start playing better golf!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make sure the teacher is a PGA Member Professional specializing in golf instruction and coaching. Then make sure you understand their teaching and coaching philosophy that they use during their lessons. That way you can match what your golf goals are with what they personally believe in and use for every lesson.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
How long are they interested in taking a lesson and how does cost effect that.
