Lockman Golf Academy


About this pro

Mentored by Jim Hardy, I now expertly teach the one and two-plane golf swings. I have been teaching the game at a high level for 26 years. I have been playing the game since age 3(45 years), I have worked with beginners, amateurs, tournament players and PGA/LPGA Tour players. Have given over 22,000 private lessons in my career. Utilizing a high-speed video system that captures a swing at 1,000 frames per second, it is quite easy to see the flaws in a golf swing. I give all my lessons at Alico Family Golf located at 16300 Lee Road, Fort Myers, FL 33912. A native of Bryn Mawr, graduated from The Haverford School (all-male) where I played golf all four years of high school. Shortly thereafter, I found my calling as a golf instructor.I learned the game from my father as well as the great Jim Hardy (Author, The Plane Truth).

I enjoy enhancing people's lives by getting them to play better golf. I get so proud when I hear about a student's score going down. Getting better at golf makes for happy people. At Lockman Golf Academy, we lower your score plain and simple.

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

The first lesson gives the student an overview of his/her swing issues. We will also start working on the most severe problem a student has. It has been said that you always get worse before you get better when taking lessons. I find this to be false. I always get a student to hit it better in the first lesson.

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

I have worked with multiple PGA/LPGA/Champions Tour players in my career. I have been teaching for 26 years. I was taught the game by Frank Cardi (Former President of the PGA) and Jim Hardy (the Plane Truth author and one of the world's greatest teachers).
