    The Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy, Orlando at the Orlando World Center Marriott was a great place to learn. Brian was a very patient instructor, that helped me through some of my weak areas in my golf game. He gave out some great advice on some tips on my long iron game that I am hoping will help me improve in that area. Would strongly recommend a lesson from Brian.

    Awesome. Great techniques and very patient.



FAQs


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

The typical process of working with a studdent is an initial interview about the game and their past history if any with sports and instruction. Then we start with high speed video capture and review the students swing. We determine together with the student these 3 things:

1. What are you doing with your swing today.

2. What is it that needs to change to help you improve.

3. Exactly how are you going to make those improvements.


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

I have been teaching and coaching for over 27 years. I graduated from Ferris State University in the Professional Golf Management program. I am Certified in Titleist Performance Institute, Certified in Swing Catalyst, Certified US Kids Junior Golf Instruction, Certified K-Vest 3-D Training, Gears 3-D Specialist. I have been certified as an instructor through the Jim McLean Golf School and have spent 10 years training and teaching side by side with legendary golf Instructor and coach to Jack Nicklaus Mr. Jim Flick.


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

My standard pricing is typically by thee hour starting at $150 per hour and $120 for juniors and seniors over the age of 65. I offer golf lesson package bundles of 6 and 12 lesson bundles.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching through the mentorship of the late Mr. Jim Flick. Jim was legendary coach of Mr. Jack Nicklaus as well as many other top PGA Tour players through his career. I was lucky to have shared an office with one of the top 5 golf instructors in the history of the game for over 10 years. I started with Jim when I was Head Golf Professional at a resort in northern Michigan and quickly felt the passion I had for helping golfers of all abilities to improve while having fun.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all abilities from beginning juniors to PGA Tour players.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I enjoy watching the best players in the world compete at the Major Championships because you get to see the best in the world succeed and fail which keeps the game real. The 2017 US Open at Erin Hills was a pleasure to witness.


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

Take an intial lesson and you will know within the first 10-15 minutes if the personlaity fits your level of interest and when it does you can make rapid improvements. The instructor should have up to date technology and every initial lesson should include video review as a main communication tool. The teacher should be easy to approach and contact.


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

Students should simply ask themselves a couple questions...

1. What is it that they want out of the game?

2. What part of the game do they feel is keeping them from shooting lower scores and having more fun?

3. Does my current expectations level match my current dedication level?
