How Does Brad's Teaching Stand Out?

With many Sarasota golf courses offering golf instruction, how do you know where to go and who do you ask for help? Why not just go online and read an article or watch a couple of videos to fix your swing problems? This idea is free and should fix you... Right? Is that not what you are currently doing? How is this working out for you? If it is not... Stop doing the same thing... over and over.

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein

Here are 5 reasons that Brad can help you stop the insanity and enjoy playing the game whether you are just starting or have played for a long time...

1. TPI Certified

Brad believes in building functional swings that provide a predictable ball flight. Since we are not all built the same, we all are going to move differently and make compensations to make the ball go at our target. Being TPI Level 1 Certified, Brad has the ability to perform a TPI Screening that will tell you what your Body-Swing connections are

2. Trackman Certified

Trackman technology measures 27 various points of impact. These include club head speed, ball speed, angle of attack, face angle as well as give you a face to path ratio to just name a few. By utilizing this technology, we will know exactly what your club and ball are doing through impact. This is important as this interaction determines how the ball will fly in the air. Brad has a Level 2 certification with Trackman.

3. PGA Education/Certifications

Brad is always trying to improve his knowledge of the game. He has been certified by the PGA of America in Instruction and is currently enrolled in the PGA of America’s Master Professional Program in Teaching and Coaching (187 in US at this writing)

4. Personalized Playing/Practice Plan

No matter if your goals are to play professionally or to just get out and enjoy the game with family and friends, together, you and I will determine the best playing and practice plan for you. You will not leave one of our sessions without having a clear understanding of what to do, how to do it and how best to learn each piece.

5. I Care

As a student of mine, I will get to know you. You will not just be a time on my calendar. My role as your instructor/coach is to facilitate the improvement of your game and in order to do that, I will need to know how you tick and build a relationship with you.

Due to his passion for education and the game of golf, Brad has taught at some of the finest facilities in the US including the TPC at Sawgrass, The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, The Woodlands Resort, The Woodlands Country Club as well as the TPC at The Woodlands.

Brad has worked with all levels of players from beginners to professionals. While at The Woodlands Country Club, Brad oversaw the junior program which produced two boys teams as well as two girls teams from the same high school finishing in the top five in the state of Texas. Brad has also worked with multiple Club Champions, men and women. “I really just like working with anyone that is willing to learn.“

“When I first met Brad, I was a 17 handicapper who slapped at the ball and my misses were in multiple directions. Within 3 lessons, I was no longer slapping the ball and by the 10th lesson my handicap had dropped to single digits. I can't say enough good things about Brad and his teaching techniques.” John Landsbaum – The Woodlands, TX - The Woodlands Country Club Member
