About this pro

I have been teaching golf in Atlanta for 15 years and I have worked with every golf level from beginners to Tour Players.

In every golf lesson, I use high-speed video with reference lines that help me and the student see the areas that might need improving to help their game.  I also use a technology called Boditrak.  This technology allows me to see how the golfer is using the ground in their swing for maximum transfer of power. 

In the first lesson, you will see the route that we will take to make your golf swing more consistent and you will see results in the first lesson.

No matter what level of golfer you are I know that I can make you better in a short period of time.

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

First, I like to know what the student's goals might be in golf. I have students with a wide range of goals.

Then depending on the student's goals and where they already are in the game of golf, we might work toward those goals in the first lesson.

I always use video in my lessons no matter what level the golfer is at during the first lesson.  This not only helps me, it helps the students to see where and why the changes need to be made.

I map out a road plan of what it will take to reach the students goals and the fastest way to that goal.

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

In the first lesson, I have a reduced price of $65 for the hour lesson.  My standard rate after the first lesson is $80 per hour.

A popular series of lessons that I have is 5 One Hour Lessons for $350.  This saves the student money in the long run but also allows the student to take a lesson at a consistent rate.

How did you get started teaching?

I started working on my own game with George Kelnhofer in 1995. In 2000 I began studying closely under George and learning the science behind the golf swing. He not only became a mentor to me but a good friend.

After a few years of working with George, I became a part owner of a technology company in Atlanta. During this time I not only started teaching but I also trained other instructors in teaching.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all levels of golfers over the years from beginners to tour players.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

This is a text message that I recently received from a student. 

Hi Chris.  I am doing well. How are you?   Yes, I am getting about 7 rounds in a month.  In fact, I was in route to play a round yesterday when you texted.  

Things are MUCH better thanks to you.   Specifically, I am much more accurate consistently with my driver and typically hitting my other woods and long irons a lot better.   I am moderately better also with chipping. Frankly, I Think that issue is insufficient practice because the technique is better thanks to your help. 

The most inconsistent parts are my approach shot and putting.  I shot an 89 yesterday and it could've been better if I had putted better.  To view the detail for my round, including scorecard, stats, and my exact path around the course, click here:  

Thanks again for your help. Your instruction has made a great impact on my game. I'm looking forward to continued improvement

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

I would make sure the teacher understands your goals in golf and do they use technology in their golf lessons.

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

What are they trying to accomplish with help from a golf instructor? Is it contact, lower scores, short game, full swing or any other areas that are important to you.

How many lessons do you think it will take to reach your goal?

How many times a week can you practice?
