About this pro

As a passionate golf instructor I have been able to help thousands of golfers enjoy themselves while improving their game. I believe in helping people improve through a variety of methods but always based on sound fundamentals first. I have been fortunate to have learned from some of the best people in and out of the golf industry and it is truly a pleasure to share what I know in fun and creative ways. I have been fortunate to assist PGA Tour Players and beginners alike throughout the United States. Learning is learning but teaching is an art and a science. I have devoted my entire career to help people enjoy their lives more through the recreation activity of golf and I am sure I can help you too.

    Sam does a great job personalizing the lesson to your skill level and golf swing.

  • Tyrus Joseforsky

    Sam knows his stuff. Came to him was a nasty Driver Slice. We quickly eliminated the slice, and then addressed other issues within my swing to consistently drive the ball straight.

  • Jake Beck

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

First Question : " What exactly would you like to accomplish?"

The answer determines the planned approach. A series of lessons is almost always recommended. Golf and all of its aspects usually requires more than one lesson. Although I have been known to add 20 yards to someoes drive in 30 minutes.

Second Question: " What is the committment to improving? "

If someone is not going to practice what I suggest then at least we are being honest. I'll limit my instruction to a "quick fix" approach.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Experience! 34 years as a professional instructor and thousands of happy clients has to account for something :-)
