I get the most enjoyment out of seeing someone do something they didn't think they could. There is nothing better than the look on a beginners face when they first hit it high and straight, or an advanced player when they break through with a new low score.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My process begins by really trying to get to know my student. Things like occupation, how you learn, hobbies, other sports you play, injuries, etc will all help me formulate a plan of action. With beginners I will maintain a very simple approach, showing you how to play golf and score with an emphasis on short game. With more advanced players who are comfortable with their technique, I emphasize more coaching and course management.
