I've been teaching for 22 years and am a PGA Master Professional. Visit my website for more information. I specialize in playing lessons which take place on the golf course.
“My son has been with a multitude of instructors and without question feels Rafael is by far and away, the instructor that does the most for his game”
“Rafael has unmatched knowledge not only of the mechanics of the golf swing but more importantly on how to play the game, I am lucky to work with him”
“Just a quick note of thanks….You did a great job of locating my “biggest” problems. I really appreciate the individual attention.”
The most important part of the process is to determine what the golfer's goals are. After clearly establishing these goals, I determine the current skill level of the golfer by having them go through a series of assessments.
I've been a PGA of America member since 1999, and became a Master Professional (2 % of all golf professionals) in 2014.
I charge by the hour, whether lessons are on the course or at a practice facility.
Between the Golf Operations side of the business and the Teaching and Coaching side, I always was more attracted to the latter.
All skill levels and ages. All formats, from 1/2 hour privates all the way up to 4 1/2 day golf schools.
Helping a client from the San Fransisco Bay area that was in Florida on business. He stayed a few extra days to train with me and I happened to have a good day on the course during our playing lessons. I shot 66 and he told me that he really learned how important patience and pre-shot routines are on the course.
Make sure to ask a lot of questions and participate in the learning process. It must be a relationship that involves trust and open communication.
They need to ask themselves how they best learn, and what qualities in a golf teacher they are looking for.
