100% of my clients have shown tremendous improvement after just one lesson. From beginners to advanced players the improvements have all been substantial. I know a number of different swings that can help students of all body types. Whether your goal is low scoring or long drive I can help you get there. I have been teaching golf for over 9 years to people of all ages. I believe that anyone can achieve greatness as long as they put the effort in. I believe in my students and myself which leads to success. The proof in what I teach can be realized after just one lesson.
I enjoy everything there is to enjoy about teaching golf. It is in my opinion the best and most enjoyable game ever played. I love working with children, young adults, and adults. I also love helping people. I truly consider myself a people person and bring that personality to the lessons I give. There is in my opinion no better way to take care of my wife and our two young boys than teaching this great game to as many people as I can.
When it comes to hitting golf balls I know how frustrating it can be to feel lost out on the golf course or driving range and that is why I have made it my business to help as many golfers as I can feel confident and comfortable while participating in this great game. There is nothing like watching a student hit their first great shot, or watching them break 100, 90, 80, or 70 for the first time. This is why I love teaching golf.
One short-game lesson with John shaved 2-3 strokes off my round! Affordable and effective.
Jonathan knows so many different ways to explain the same concept. I was a brand new player on the day of my first lesson. Jonathan taught me how to putt, chip' and pitch the ball all in the first 40minutes. By the end of my lesson we played 9 holes of pitch and putt and I hit 7 greens from 60yards and under and had no more than 2 putts on each hole. My results made me think that golf is easy. I was hitting 3irons and fairwaywoods consistently after my second lesson. After 10 lessons I was hitting all my clubs long and where I wanted. I still think golf is easy thanks to him.
I didn't play golf or know anything about golf until I started getting "lessons" with him. So I came as a complete beginner. I can tell you that he is an amazing teacher! I've only had a few lessons and I already feel comfortable with my swing, and understand golf a lot deeper than a beginner should. He goes in depth about everything and overall my lessons have been a great experience and I would recommend him over anybody.
From my first lesson to my tenth I made consistent and rapid improvement under Jonathan's tutelage. He is worth the money I spent and more because now I can beat all of my friends. I went from a 27 handicap to a 14 in 3 months and that was 2 years ago. I'm currently at a 7 handicap and it's thanks to his methods.
This varies depending upon the experience of the student. If it is a student who has never swung a club before we start from scratch with some stretching to figure out physical limitations. During this time I take the opportunity to discuss the golf swing and what we are going to work on during the first lesson. In all cases where the student has hit balls before I like to take a look what they naturally do well in the golf swing after stretching. From then on I formulate a plan of action to improve upon their understanding of what is necessary to be a consistent ball striker. I also decide what drills to work with that will best benefit the student on different aspects of the swing. I work backward from the green in my first ever lesson system. I usually like to do a full two hour crash course for all beginners working from green backwards through the hole to the tee box. I do this for par 5s, par 4s, and par 3s. We discuss and learn about putting, chipping, pitching, half swings, three quarter swings, and full swings all on the first day. Including a introduction to greenside bunker and fairway bunker ball striking. Depending on how much a student can benefit from a longer first lesson I am willing to go over two hours at no additional cost other than the cost for the first hour providing my schedule permits it. No matter what the case the second hour of the students first lesson is guaranteed free and fully scheduled into that days schedule.
I was a head coach for the TGA in union county for over 3 years and completed all of their training courses with prefect scores. I have studied over 30 different professional training courses on teaching the game of golf. I am also a personal trainer so I am very familiar with the human body. I have been playing the game over 13 years and teaching for over 9. I have proven results with over 400 students in Middlesex county alone. Over 900 total students in both clinic and private settings. I am the creator of my own guide to learning and teaching the game of golf that took me over 5 years of research to develope.
The price for each lesson depends on the clients location and distance that one of my associates or myself has to travel to reach them. The price for each lesson may also be determined by where the lesson will be held. Each practice facility has their own price for range balls and a fee for teaching students. There is usually some necessary information before giving a permanent price for each lesson. Our most economic lesson is the back yard lesson. This is where I set up a driving range practice net, mat, and putting strip in your back yard. My quotes through lessons.com first lesson is always at a discount. I do this to give clients the opportunity to get to know me and what to expect from future lessons with me.
I started teaching guitar at the age of 15 and I realized that I had quite the knack for it. I started playing golf at the age of 20 and by the time I was 25 I realized why not take my teaching talents and apply it to a game that I had learned quite well. After my first student I realized that I had quite the gift and thought that it might be a fluke so I took on another student at which point I realized that either I had two flukes in a row or I was really on to something. About 10 students later I realized that I am a very talented teacher and I should keep doing this. I learned that children and adults learn in totally different ways during my experience teaching guitar to many different age groups. After applying some of those teaching principles to golf I have found that I can teach all different types of learners quickly and effectively. Part of my key to success is my belief in any new students ability to be great and learn quickly. This helps us achieve what we believe.
I have worked with children between the ages of 5 and 12. I have had great success with those children while working with the TGA of Union County. Teenagers between the ages of 13and 19. I've also worked with a number of men and women over the age of 40 and a number of men and women over the age of 60. I have also worked with younger individuals both men and women in their teens, twenties and thirties. I have found that individuals have special needs due to physical limitations that are sometimes based on age, or circumstance. Each person's individual training regiment is totally based on what they're capable of in my opinion.
I was playing a round with a client two weeks ago who has been a student of mine for 5 months now. Five months ago this man of 62 years of age could not break 100. One could imagine my pride to witness him shoot a legit 83 on a 6,800 yard par 72. Jim is driving the ball a solid 250yrds on average and shaping the ball both ways. He is flushing his long irons and fairway metals. The most important thing is that he is having fun out there. I believe it won't be long before he breaks 80 which is our current goal.
Make sure that they can definitively answer all of your questions and concerns. Also be wary of instructors that tell you that real improvement is going to take a very long time with tons of lessons. They might be holding back on some information that can help you improve more quickly.
Equipment "what do I need to play this game that fits me and my swing?" desired scores "what are my realistic goals?" understanding of the game " what do I need to know to improve my understanding of how to play this game properly?" Health and Longevity "will this swing motion in particular hurt my body over time?" "Do I have any health conditions that I should share that may affect my ability to perform certain exercises that may be involved with my golf training?" these are just a few examples.
