About this pro

25+ yrs Golf Instruction

15 years Collegiate Golf Coach

Clay Ballard Certified Golf Instructor 

Swing Catalyst Certified Instructor

Played in several U.S. Amateur Championships, British Amateur, National Publinx Championships.  Won local and state golf championships. 

I make learning the golf swing enjoyable, not a chore.  I use Video Analysis with my lessons to assist students in the learning process. Specific golf drills are given each lesson that reinforce what was discussed and shown during the lesson to help the student build a sound golf swing. 

I truly enjoy the students as they get that aha moment when the learning really hits home.  Having a job where you get to see the student improve  right before your eyes is really cool as well.  It is tremendously satisfying knowing that the thousands and thousands of hours that I have put in view golf swings enables students to reach their golf goals.

    Kevin is an excellent teacher. He is very hands on, it is a very interactive lesson. I came into the lesson after taking 2-3 years off of golf because I could not figure out how to get rid of my crazy hook. Within 2 lessons my hook was almost gone... it is amazing. To give even more context, I am in a golf simulator league this winter. I played my first 2 rounds before lessons and I shot a 100 and then a 91. I took my first lesson and then immediately played my third round and it was a 93. This is expected because some of the changes we made to my swing were significant and still were in the unnatural feeling phase. After my second lesson I immediately played my 4th round and I shot an 89. Again, I was still trying to adjust to and practice some of the big changes we had made. I played my 5th round before my 3rd lesson and shot a 75... A SEVENTY FIVE! Everything is starting to feel more natural, I can hit my woods now and my hybrids, and my irons have a subtly draw or are straight. This was after 2 lessons! I have had 3 lessons now and plan to continue working with Kevin for many more in hopes that I can continue to hit in the low 80s and 70s consistently... I can't wait to see what Kevin can do for my swing after 9 or 10 lessons. He has brought the joy of the game back to me, I only wish I had began taking lesson from Kevin years ago.

FAQs


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

After the student has warned up, I Video their swing so we have a baseline of where the student started.  After a quick review of their swing I formulate a lesson plan. I work with the student to set a few goals and based on that, we work on the area of the students swing that will bring the student the biggest benefit.

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

1.  Make sure your instructor has a sound understanding of the fundamentals of the golf swing.

3.  I meet those criteria and so much more.

Students should think about what they would like to achieve from their lessons.  

Ask the instructor about their teaching  Philosophy.
