FAQs


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

I ask the student about their golf history such as amount of experience, scores, frequency of play and practice.  I ask about their history of golf lessons.  I ask the student about any specific goals for improvement and/or if there is something they are working on at this time.  I ask who their favorite golfer is past or present.  I ask how much time they have to practice and for lessons.  I ask where they play and/or practice.

I ask the student to demonstrate their golf swing and/or hitting various shots for their long game and around the green.  I take an initial short video of their techniques for later analysis and comparison.

I ask if they are currently working on some aspect of their swing or skill at this time.
