I find out what goals the student has for the game and make sure that is a reasonable goal. All new students begin lessons with stretching and strengthening exercises to prevent injury and to prepare the student for the golf swing. Then I work on the fundamentals of grip, address, body mechanics. I start with the full swing and then work on the short game (chipping, pitching and putting) The goal is to eventually learn the skills needed to play a round of golf. When a student has enough skill to play a short par three course, I also go through basic rules and etiquette.
I have been certified by the National Registry of Professional Golf Instructors to teach golf. I have also worked extensively with a professional golfer who has helped me in the mental aspects of the game.
I started teaching golf because I had a very great need to know the entire mechanics of the golf swing. Learning to teach golf showed me each part of the swing in a manner that was very clear and then I was able to transfer that information to my students.
I have worked with students that have absolutely no knowledge of the game of golf to students who are fairly accomplished in the game and needed a tune-up or advice in a certain part of their game.
If you are a beginner student, make sure that the instructor has lots of experience with the beginning fundamentals.
