I possess a tremendous passion for the great game of golf! I keep my instruction simple, fun, and work hard to get you hitting the ball consistently!
I work with players of all abilities, from the seasoned players that just need to "tweak" their swing, to a newbie just getting started.
The smile on a client's face when they hit it great is what I enjoy most.
He tweaked a few small things, starting with my stance, using a lighter grip, & finishing with my follow through, which gave me better control & helped me gain more yards! Looking forward to my next lesson with Rich!
Very nice guy, who is easy to communicate with & explained what I was doing wrong & with a couple adjustments had me hitting the ball straight towards the target! No more playing my slice! Thanks Rich, looking forward to my next lesson!
Knowledgeable, friendly, excellent teacher.
I feel it is important to understand why they are taking a lesson(s). Is it for work, fun, to play with family, etc. I also ask if they have any physical limitations that would prohibit or limit their swing. Also want to know if they have played any other sports so I can relate similarities to them.
I started getting golf instruction at the age of 8, yes, long ago, so not only through experience, but then through becoming a PGA Professional.

Part of the job as a golf pro at a club.
The full gambit, beginner to pro athlete.
I coached middle school golf for six seasons now, both boys & girls. Seeing 3 girls I coached win the high school state championship was pretty cool!!
Now 2 of them are on Butler's team! Having one win their flight in the club championship.
Like anything else, look at the reviews from other students. Go and meet the golf pro/instructor, ask them questions, what their teaching philosophy is, etc.
It's also like a teacher in school, the more you like them, the better chance you have of learning.
The "why" of taking lessons. It is not a quick fix! What are you truly trying to accomplish by taking lessons;
* To be good enough to play in a work event
* Trying to make a school team
* To play with relatives or friends
* Better enjoyment of the game
