2017 NOPGA Teacher of the Year
2017-2018 Golf Digest Best Teachers in State (no.9)
Premier golf instruction and coaching for all ages and skill levels
Helping others achieve the goals with golf is very satisfying.
Todd is the best teacher I have ever worked with. Not only is he a great person, but his knowledge of the golf game is truly remarkable. What impresses me the most is his ability to work with all levels of golfers. Whether he’s working with me who plays college golf or a beginner he uses the best technology in the game to monitor your swing, yet explains it in ways that eveyone can understand.
You understand what he is trying to teach. It’s easy to translate in your own swing
Todd is a patient teacher. He’s given my son Jay a clear big picture plan of how he wants to develop his golf swing and every lesson is designed with the plan in mind. Todd also has an excellent way of communicating his teaching points with interesting stories about how the guys on tour work on their games. It’s been a real golf education thus far and we hope to continue it for years to come.
Todd is extremely knowledgeable and uses the perfect blend of teaching techniques. He stays ahead of the industry with state of the art technology as well. He has helped my son excel his game far more than I had ever expected. My son looks forward to his lesson every week and uses Todd’s video app, Edufii, to review what he needs to work on between lessons.
I first find out what the students is trying to achieve and what they desire to get out of the lesson. I video the student and gather other information I may need to diagnose the best course of action for improvement. I explain and show the student what they need to do to improve and then help them through the steps for improvement. All of this is documented on their personal Edufii training space for future, repeated review.
I was an instructor at the Mike Bender Golf Academy in Lake Mary Florida before my position as the Director of Instruction at Barrington Golf Club. The MBGA is recoginized by Golf Magaizine as one of the Top 25 Golf Schools in the United States. Before that I wa the Lead Instructor for the Golf Digest Schools at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida. I am a member of the PGA since 2000, and certified by numerous golf organizations such as the Tileist Performance Institute and Penn State Universtity Biomechanics of Golf.
My dad was a golf club professional for 40+ years who played the PGA Tour in the early 60's. He instilled in me a love for the game of golf and a passion for learning all the complexities the game provides.
I have worked with literally ever type of student imaginable, young kids and adult beginners to players competing competitively, even on the PGA Tour.
My student Chris expressed her desire to win the Cleveland Women's Golf Association's Championship last summer. We put a plan in place and went to work. Right before the tournament began we played a practice round identifying the best stratedgy for a couple of holes she had trouble playing. I am proud to say she won the tournament!
It's true, you get what you pay for... A bad golf lesson will end up costing you a lot more than the money.
The best question you can ask is "how many lessons do you give per week? and do you teach full time?" A busy teacher is good teacher.
