    This past winter my wife and I decided to take golf lessons. I had played a few times but my wife had never picked up a golf club. We are both in our sixties. We contacted Eric Hinman and feel we could not have found a better fit. Eric has incredible patience and knowledge. His love of the game is infectious. He was able to give me strategies in correcting my swing and helped my wife make good contact with the ball. At the end of the season we actually went out with Eric and played 18 holes with his analysis along the way. When we return next year we hope to contact Eric and pick up where we left off.

    My son is 15 and left handed. Eric has great patients as my son is a beginner. First lesson Eric had my son hitting the ball in the air and my son is eager for the next lesson. I'be decided to continue with pitching, bunker, chipping, and putting. My son as never been more excited. Thank you, Eric Regards, David

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

I demonstrate ball flight and there are nine different types of ball flight. Then the GASP. Grip, Aim, Stance, Posture. Video their swing and diagnosed there's swing fault or there could be more than one than one swing fault.

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

Attended the golf Academy for Instructor's in  Scottsdale Arizona John Jacobs Golf. Lessons are determined as to how many lessons will be needed to correct your particular issue.

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

Former students are always at a discounted price. We will discuss if more lessons will be needed. Drills will be discussed as to what particular fault you may have. Of course if more than one lesson is needed then we will discuss that at that time.

How did you get started teaching?

By meeting John Jacobs in 1985 in Miami Florida.

What types of students have you worked with?

From teenagers to people in there 80's. From one handicappers to people that are just beginning.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

It's always fun when a student recognizes me from television and they say that they like hearing the stories that I have about working with tour professionals. They said it always adds a little extra fun to there instruction.

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

Always talk with them first and see if you connect with them. Ask what makes them different or better than someone else.

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

The fundamentals of golf are the bases of delivering the clubface to the ball squarely at impact. This is referred to as the GASP. Grip, Aim, Stance, Posture.
