    I am 80 yrs old and cannot move like I once did. The lessons provided by Kirk while informative were not meant for me at my present age. I believe the lessons provided are for much younger people. I wanted lessons for "Senior Golfers" not young golfers!!



FAQs


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

I have a model for teaching beginners and inexperienced golfers that is the most effective in the golf industry.

35 years of experience, multiple certifications, and a long time educator for the PGA of America teaching other teachers how to teach golf.

1 hour $125, three hours for $275, 5 hours for $425, and 10 hours for $750


How did you get started teaching?

People started asking me if I would give them golf lessons when I was an eighteen-year-old champion and top golfer in the Broward County area of South Florida in the late seventies.


What types of students have you worked with?

All types including physically handicapped golfers.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Giving a lesson to a customer who was totally frustrated and plagued with the shanks, he improved so much that a few weeks later he qualified for the United States senior Open. This is one of the top accomplishments a golfer over 50 years old can achieve and for him one of the top memories of his lifetime.


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

Do not shop price or you will be wasting your money. The top teachers teach top golfers and have been teaching for at least 20 years.


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

Does the instructor use the best technology (radar that measures both club movement through  impact and ball flight) and video equipment for teaching?
