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.
When you have a multitude of things wrong with your swing, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with instruction. Pat has a way of breaking down certain parts of your swing, and once each fundamental is mastered, he’ll move you forward to the next. His methods certainly prevent an information overload and I was hitting the ball farther and straighter within an hour. By my second session I could consistently chip in various ways around the green (something I couldn’t do) and even hit a proper fade. Pat knows what he’s doing and keeps it fun. Quit hitting into the woods and give Pat a call.
Fixed my drive and worked on chipping. Explained the fundamentals of path vs. swing plane and how it affects ball flight. We played 18 and hit balls afterwards. He would have stayed out longer but I was exhausted. I walked away with confidence off the tee and around the green/bunkers. Consistently shooting 8-10 strokes lower now. Would recommend time with Pat for any skill level!
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.
