The thing that I enjoy most is watching my athletes achieve their goals. Everyones goals are different, but I pride myself on helping you along the way in accomplishing what you didn't think you'd be able to accomplish.
Ryan is a great teacher - he clearly loves the game and helping his students get better. I liked his approach as it was accessible and not overwhelming. I got better from working with him!
Ryan takes into account the specific goals and physical circumstances of his students. He is patient and encouraging while delivering his lessons.
Almost immediately you can tell that Ryan has been working on his craft. He possesses plenty of knowledge about the game, yet unlike coaches who were simply excellent players, Ryan has studied how to most effectively communicate his feedback. His directions are clear and simple. He quickly diagnosed the issue with my swing and gave me specific corrections that have made a marked improvement in my game. Moreover, he often will check in while I am at the range to offer free advice or suggestions. Finally, Ryan is smart, interesting, and has a good sense of humor, so time spent with him is enjoyable.
Ryan was fun and easy to work with. I saw a serious improvement in my game this past golf season after taking lessons with him.
First and foremost, I want to develop a connection with my athletes. I always start with an evaluation of what YOU want out of the process. Not everyone has the same goals, so I want to know what YOU want. From there we will evaluate your initial swing flaws, and come up with the best course of action moving forward.

I was a high school baseball coach for 6 years and really developed my love for coaching there. I was always a better coach than a player, and then took that same passion to golf.
I work with juniors and beginners to college athletes and club champions.
Find someone you connect with on more than a golf level. You are putting your trust into this person, you need to feel comfortable. Someone could be the most knowledgable golf person on earth, but if they can't relay the message to you, what good are they?
What do YOU really want out of the expereince? Be specific, don't just say "I want to be better at golf." Evaluate your game, and think about where you have the greatest area of improvement.
