About this pro

www.lotsobirdies.com

I am Jim McLean Certified & Lynn Blake Certified, I offer video analysis for every lesson. My passion is coaching, not just teaching. I love seeing my students grow and enjoy golf more. Golf is not the easiest sport to pick up or play but with the right coach, students will enjoy golf more! Let me help you enjoy golf more!

Seeing the smile on my students face and watching them grow in their golf game is the best feeling! I get the chance to take my students from the driving range to the golf course and put their game to the test.

Keeping track of statistics on the course is huge for game improvement!!

FAQs


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

I will ask a few questions to get to know my student and what they are wanting to improve on, goals they may have. What kind of shot they want to hit, some strengths & weaknesses are while playing.

Keeping track of statistics while playing helps this out a lot!


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

I am a PGA member, Jim McLean Certified & Lynn Blake Certified. I've had the opportunity to learn under some awesome teachers and have learned invaluable lessons from them. Everyone doest not have to swing one way, I will work with my student to make their swing more effecient. I am not a method teacher! There are 5 ball flight laws:

1. Face

2. Path

3. Angle of attack

4. Speed

5. Centerness of contact

Fix those and you will enjoy golf lots!!


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching my younger brother when we first started playing golf, I was 16 he was 12 (he is left handed) he is also a PGA Certified Professional now as well. I love seeing the growth of my students!! Seeing their love of the game grow and become more passionate about golf is an amazing experience!


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with beginners all the way up to tour players, juniors, ladies, men, seniors...I have taught them all. Every student/lesson is different and I love the opportunity of something different every time!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Masters is like Christmas in April for myself. Nothing compares to The Masters! 


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

Ask them what the Ball Flight Laws are??

1. Face

2. Path

3. Angle of attack

4. Speed

5. Centerness of contact

Any good teacher should know them, also a PGA Certified Professional doesn't hurt either! Video analysis is not a must have, but it always helps out the student and coach to have it!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your goals? How much time do you have to practice? How bad do you want it? What drives/motivates you? Are you a good listener? What is the best way you learn? Do you have access to the things you need to achieve your goals?
