About this pro

 As a PGA Teaching Professional, I see golfers at our golf schools put a lot of emphasis on swing purity. Let's make no mistake, there is nothing in golf like a perfectly struck tee shot that arcs high into the air and lands far down in the center of the fairway. The problem is that it doesn't happen every time, and in their search for the perfect swing, many golfers forget to play the game.

So if you want to make a serious effort at improving your game then learn how become a great golfer, by using the correct address fundamentals; grip, posture, alignment. By Using these address fundamentals your naturally sound and effective swing will naturally develop. Plus learn how improve your short game from 125 in from the green

I fell in love with the game of golf at age 6 and quickly realized this was not a game I could master without professional instruction.

My golf teaching education comes from Grandfather Frank Saccone,PGA . (After many year of playing I decided to give up golf on tour and to become a instructor helping people improve their game. Soon I was ranked in the top 20 of California’s best teachers) and G.S.E.D. Instructor of the book The Golfing Machine by Homer Kelly. I was also taught by Bruce Hamilton PGA (ranked in the top 100 best teachers in the USA by Golf Magazine). I am a member of the National Professional Golf Instructors Association (whose sole purpose is to teach golf) and an Instructor for National Golf Schools who run over 50 golf schools in America.

    Had a great experience working on my short game, Wayne help me hit more consistent short around the green and bunker shot, we also practice wedge shots from 50 to 100 yards. It was truly a new experience for me, and how easy it was to learn the proper technique

    I'm a older man in my middle 60s wanting a little help with my golf game, I heard a lot people talking about Wayne and how he helped them improve their game. After awhile of trying to improve on my own and wasn't getting any better I decided to ask around how I could contract Wayne and get a lesson. After we meet and talk awhile as ask him if he had time today. During the lesson Wayne gave me some drills to do and work on. It was a pleasant lesson with improvement I do recommend Wayne if you need help

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

Depending on your level of play, my teaching methods are simple and easy to understand for any beginner,or advanced golfer. By using the correct address fundamentals; grip, posture, alignment. By Using these address fundamentals your naturally sound and effective swing will naturally develop, plus understanding the basics to golf course management 

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

I'm a retired touring Professional and Certified instructor on all aspects of the game, I work with a lot tour professional on the LPGA, Plus I'm rank 20th in the top 100 teacher of the short game and from 125 years in. I will teach you the proper technique for the long game to the short game.

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

I do have a standard fee, but I do make exception for beginners because when starting to learn how to play golf can be expensive, with clubs, bag, shoes, etc.

How did you get started teaching?

After my career was ending as a player, I wanted to give back to the game that I love, so teaching others how to play the game gives me total satisfaction 

What types of students have you worked with?

This question is very simple, I love to teach anyone the has desire to learn golf, from beginners, intermediate, to tour professional. I do work wth a lot of women on LPGA tour, and college students trying to reach the next level.

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

Here are five aspects to consider when searching for the right golf coach fit:

1. Know what you want or need — Before you even begin looking at instructors or coaches, you need to determine what it is you are hoping to achieve through lessons or what is is exactly that you need help with by starting by asking yourself what your own goals are and what you expect from your coach. It’s important to be honest with yourself at this stage. 

2. Teaching methods — coach’s teaching philosophy is almost as important as compatibility. you don’t want a coach who is determined to only teach one method, but you do need to find out if their teaching philosophy will be comfortable for you, a bad coach might address the effects of a bad swing, rather than dealing with and correcting the root cause.

3. Compatibility — Let’s face it, you’re not going to be enjoying your lessons if you don’t get along with your coach.

Hughes believes it’s a golfer’s responsibility to ensure they can build a relationship with their coach. This means figuring out if you have common ground, your coach’s personality type, and whether you share beliefs about the game and how it should be played.

Golf News Net adds that the relationship between a student and teacher is a personal one, and if you can’t communicate with each other you aren’t going to get anywhere.

When it comes to compatibility, it might take a couple of lessons to determine if you’re with the right coach, but You can shortening this process by starting with coaches recommended by friends, family, or colleagues.

4. Accreditation and experience — Once you’ve determined what you expect from your coach, you can start looking at the accreditations you expect them to have, That’s because these associations offer training and expect members to maintain their certification. 

"The programs these men and women complete are intense, include first-hand experiences over a longer course of time, and are constantly required by the organizations to re-educate themselves on a regular basis,

5. Keep an eye out for bad habits — When you begin trial lessons, you can keep your eyes open for tell-tale signs that your coach may not be a good fit in the long run.

I recommend  watching out for a coach who’s always checking their watch; it’s a sign that they don’t really care. The same can be said for a coach who is always checking their phone.

I also warns golfers to be wary of coaches who bring too much technology into the lesson as it takes their focus away from you and your swing. It’s worth mentioning that you won’t have this technology with you on the course, which makes it unpractical 

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

Considering the cost before hiring any Golf Instructor should be your first priority as it can save you a handsome amount. If two instructors are of same level having the same facilities, a wise person will always go for the one who offers cheap rates and so should you. As every golf instructor has their own way of charging, some charge for every hour they teach while others charge for every single lesson they teach and there is price variation too so, you should always go for the one you can afford.
