My goal is to make sure that while you are with me I provide an enjoyable, nurturing environment that will allow you to gain the knowledge and tools necessary to improve your golf game.
The structure of my teaching uses a "building block approach." I provide useful information that is easy to understand and builds upon itself in a logical progression. Building a golf game is similar to a house. You must first create a solid foundation to enjoy any success. The foundation for all golf shots is the set-up. Once you are set-up for success, it's time to build. In building a full swing I like to start with small swings which allow a player to learn the proper technique in the impact zone. As the swing gets longer, you will learn the importance of the pivot in generating consistency and power.
My students are important and helping them attain their goals is the paramount reason I teach. I believe that helping students attain their goals and enjoy their golf game more will also help to "grow the game".
I've been giving golf lessons for three years and have seen my students improve on a regular basis. But honestly, their improvement is centered around them putting in the practice time working on and implementing the techniques, drills and principles they learned on the lesson tee.
There is no greater joy than watching a student's face light up when they see their hard work and effort come to fruition while executing a pure shot!
customized approach. lot's of tools to tweak my game that were appropriate for me.
I highly recommend Earl! He is very knowledgeable and pleasant to have as a coach. I finished 3, 1-hour lessons with him last month and plan on resuming lessons once I have the availability. I was completely new to golf and now after 3 lessons, I feel confident enough to play a round.
Earl is a great instructor. I had 4 lessons with him, which were all very productive and helpful and also very affordable. I was definitely able to get a lot out of these lessons, which I will carry with me forever.
Earl was amazing with our daughter. She looked forward to each and every lesson. It is amazing how fast her game improved. Earl made it fun and challenging at the same time. Our youngest daughter will be his next student!
First, we do a physical assessment to ensure that the student can perform the movements necessary in the golf swing and determine if any previous injuries need has caused any limitation and therefore need take into consideration.
Second, we do swing evaluation to determine what needs to be corrected, improved or changed.
Third, we talk about the desired goals both long term and short term of the student.
Fourth, we lay out a effective and efficient lesson plan to accomplish the desired results and goals.
I've in the golf industry for seven years and have worked with all level of students from kids, teenagers and adults. I've also worked with various skill levels as well but mainly with beginner and intermediate golfers.
I have worked alongside multiple Golf Professionals in providing instruction.
I am currently enrolled in PGA of America and working toward obtaining my PGA Class “A” Certification.
I do not have a standard pricing system but will discuss each partnership on an individual basis and adjust according to age level and goals. I will often run specials where the more lessons you take there are greater discounts. It also varies on whether it is a group lesson or individual.
I fell in love with the game of golf and just developed a great desire to see the game grow and help those who take up the game have more fun and develop their skills and abilities.
I've worked primarily with beginners and intermediate students of all ages including kids, teenagers, young adults, adults and seniors.
I would say that the most important thing to look for is a student’s connection/chemistry with the instructor and his or her ability to communicate.
Students should think about what their goals are when looking to take lessons and how much time they can actually commit to practicing and working on the developing their game and implementing the principles, drills and practice plan given by their instructor.
My job as a golf instructor is to teach students what to do and their job is to learn how to do it. The only way a student will improve is to spend quality time working on and implementing the practice drills provided by the instructor.
