Michael earned his PGA membership in 2008 and has been teaching for more than 15 years. His background includes teaching alongside a Golf Magazine Top 100 instructor and multiple MAPGA Teachers of the Year. Michael's students range from beginners to national competitors, all of whom enjoy how he simplifies the swing and the game to lower their scores. His teaching philosophy is to help players get better in their own way by improving their weaknesses, harnessing their strengths, and managing their abilities on the course. Rather than chasing a "perfect swing" Michael helps students work within their physical abilities to understand impact and ball flights based on what the player feels. In an effort to keep the game simple for the player and focus on what is felt during the swing, mechanics are only discussed as necessary to achieve the desired ball flight and playing results. He teaches players not only how to improve their technique, but also how to practice and then implement those changes on the course while managing a strategy for their lowest score.
Great instructor, nice facilities
Our first lesson will be a review of what you have been trying to accomplish with your game as well as discuss some future goals. We will discuss the dynamics of impact and how to efficiently get the balk toward its destination. We will discuss feelings and patterns more than complicated mechanics. Lessons will grow on each other as we develop the swing and game to help you shoot your lowest scores.
Playing lessons, 1/2 & full day schools, group instruction, and long-term coaching plans are offered.
Michael has worked with students of every age and ability from beginners ages 5 to 50 and advanced players competing in national events.
