About this pro

I have many years experiences in all facets of the golf industry. I have given lessons to golfers of all ages for over 40 years. I am a former PGA Tour player. I owned and operated the Larry Wise Golf Performance Center on the campus of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA from 2008 to 2016. I have recently relocated my golf instruction business to Boynton Beach, FL where I offer private and group lessons at two Palm Beach County courses, Okeeheelee and Park Ridge, contracted with Golf Professional Services Inc.

I enjoy helping people accomplish their golf goals. It is rewarding when a person looks up and sees the ball go where they wanted it to go and a smile comes on their face. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences with my students. I enjoy making the golf game easier for my students and helping them be more consistent.

    I have had a few coaches in my life Larry is one of the best. I will be returning to see him soon. He has corrected my swing to the point im ready to go for more. Thanks Larry!

    Both my husband's game and my own were greatly improved by Mr. Wise's golf instruction during the several years we took lessons from him in Bethlehem, PA. We were so very sad to see him move to sunny Florida. All the best to this great golf instructor!

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

New students complete a pre instruction questionnaire.  The purpose is to record the goals and needs of each student. After the goals are established a plan of instruction can be tailored to accomodate and accomplish the students goals. Lessons are kept simple and non-complicated. Unfortunately, a very high percentage of golfers have far too many thoughts and doubts about how to swing at a golf ball.

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

Played golf in High School. Turned golf prosessional just after High School. Graduated from PGA Business School. Accomplished being Golf Professional/Director of Golf at three different golf facilities in USA. Created three different golf related companies and golf learning centers.

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

I have various price schedules and programs for individuals and/or groups. My price schedules can be reviewed and copied on my website.

How did you get started teaching?

Turned professional just after High School and became an Assistant Golf Professional with PGA training. Starting teaching golfers of all ages.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with any and all ages both Male and Female.  I have worked with juniors. I have worked with PGA Tour Professionals as well as with Special Needs students. I have also worked with Amputee Golf Assoc. for clinics and seminars.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

2016 High School Team in Nazareth, PA won the state team championship. This group was a group I started with in Middle School and they were working for six years with me in Bethlehem, PA.

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

Make sure you can communicate with your instructor. Make sure your instructor is working totally toward your goals and not trying to sell you on a theory or method to strike a golf ball that doesn't have specific justifications or correlations to physics law. Golf is a simple game of simply swinging a club head around a circle and striking the ball as the club head is swung in mid air aroung your body balance.  Keep it simple.

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

Students should think thru what they want to accomplish and what goals they have. They should be clear and attainable. Will the instructor help and train the student based on their goals or just offer tips and suggestions for improvement.
