  • Jana H.

    I have been a long time student of Jay. He is the best teacher I ever had. He will be able to give you all the tools you need to take your game to another level. His 15 plus years of teaching and knowledge of the latest technique will make your lesson one of the greatest experience.

  • Jerry S

    Among his many talents, Jay Lee is an exceptional golf instructor, with a knack for quickly analyzing your game, identifying your strengths and weaknesses, and applying appropriate remedies from a "quick fix" to a long-term strategy. He has a way with mnemonics to help the key points stick in your head so that you can continue to work on these areas long after the lesson has ended. He is a great player with boundless energy and enthusiasm, but not all great players are great teachers. The key to being a good teacher is bringing out the best in you, not trying to make you into something you're not. Jay has that ability, and best of all you have a whole lot of fun with a terrific guy! My sessions with Jay will always stick with me and the pointers remain in my sub-conscience. Thanks Jay for your help, your friendship, and your encouragement.

  • Mia A.

    Jay Lee is an outstanding instructor as well as a coach. He cares about each and every one of his students and has the unique ability to customize students individual needs in order for them to make the best possible improvements in their game.

  • Richard Berman

    Jay is a real student of golf. His keen eye, focused concentration not only helps him quickly identify problems but also helps him develop and clearly communicate a real solution. But it his enthusiasm, dedication, and drive that motivates you to push yourself beyond your own targets and expectations.



FAQs


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

• 5-10 minute conversation to get to know you so we can formulate the best plan and time frame for your goals
• Review of any previous experiences in matches, lessons, rounds, etc....
• An on-court/course lesson to go over these goals and assess your abilities
• Discuss and agree upon a plan to execute over a period of time


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

100% of my training for teaching has come from on-job work, from private lessons, school coaching, private coaching, physical training, and studies of biomechanics and physics.


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

Pricing varies from $50-$100/hour depending on golf or tennis, frequency and total number of lessons, including the long term plans.  Group lessons wiill be lower prices per player.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching tennis while working as a professional hitter at my high school's summer camp.  I gave a couple of lessons filling in for another pro, and after that, the club wanted me to teach officially on their staff. 

I started teaching golf shortly after some injuries in tennis and focused more on moving to Florida and becoming a golf professional.


What types of students have you worked with?

Almost every single one you can imagine.

• 3-5 year old beginner playing for the first time
• Junior kids just starting to play tournaments and those that were nationally ranked, and everyone in between
• High school team boys and girls
• College players
• Adult recreational and competitive players
• Local tournament players
• Satellite/ mini-tour players
• ATP tour players


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Just 2 days ago, I finished up a series of 3 lessons to one of the visiting members of my club, who was desperate to improve her net game before this double testing match for the next season.  After a few tips, she executed and learned things she never new existed before, and she confirmed she will takes notes on these concepts and try to execute them this weekend.  Seeing someone in dire straits be courageous enough to learn something new and be ready to execute them so quickly is always a joy.


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

As a student of anything, you first have to decide on your goals.  Hint: My first question to you will be: "Why are you here"?  If you're answer is "To learn/become better" we have a lot of work to do.  I would advise you to think about your game and life and let me know why exactly you wish to play as opposed to go running, go to the gym, play billiards, Nintendo Wii, or take a martial arts/cross fit class.  I have come to find that EVERY potential student has a very specific reason, but they just need to know and find it before starting lessons.


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

Students should think what exactly are your future goals, i.e., after taking 10, 20, 50 lessons, what type of player would you like to be?  The better goals you have, the more quickly I can get you there.  Is it to simply make your high school team?  Be #1 player on that team?  Get a college scholarship?  Finally beat you weekend buddies?  Be #1 in the world in 5 years?  We will determine when and how that goal will be achieveable but it has to start with your clarity of mind and desire.
