If you're a beginner so what! All that means is that you probably have less bad swing habits!

I am a feel type of teacher. If you know what a good swing feels like and how to work with your  body and make that repeatable you can eliminate all that extra thinking and finally start swinging!

Lessons are typically one hour but I usually end up spending more time with my students

My rates are lower because it's not about the money it is about the many! I believe golf teaches us all the good qualities in life including patience, peace, tolerance, respect and accountability while giving us a means to become fitter, healthier and more loving of the game, ourselves and others.

Golf better, feel better, swing better, have fun and repeat!

    Dominic is a great instructor, and he holds you accountable to your learning experience.

  • BILL KUCZERYN

    I had an appointment on March 15th at 2 o'clock and I was at your Broadview facility and no one was there it was locked and closed. So what do I do now.

  • Nancy Paniagua

    Dominic is very patient and has taught me how to do things the right way after years of just taking classes that provided no added value. I would recommend him wholeheartedly

  • Joy Roller

    Very specific advice. Helpful drills

FAQs


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

Consultation, Evaluation, Foundation and Application

 

I look at where you are now fundamentally, physically, genetically and mentally, and then focus on how I can get you there economically, effectively and efficiently!

 

The first four are important and the last three are just as important! Everybody is uniquely different, the best part of you is that there's only one of you and nobody has your swing it's yours. You can always improve it and you take it everywhere you go!

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in college when I realized I had an outside of the box approach to the game and helped a college teammate shed six strokes off of his game. At that point the coach was asking me for advice then I knew!


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with 1000's of students, all ages, all handicaps, all genders, all injuries, all medical conditions, all disabilities and limitations. Left-handed right-handed one-handed I can work with anybody


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

This year I had gone to golf myself as a single and they paired me up with two high school freshmen girls and during the round I had noticed that the one young lady was struggling and I told her that I was a golf professional and she had told me that her coach had changed her grip one week before tryouts and she couldn't hit the ball straight and she was suffering so bad with confidence. Well being a teacher I asked her if she didn't mind if I gave her a few pointers and actually videotaped her swing because I carry my software on my phone with me and by the end of the round. I put her grip back the way it was and she was hitting her driver over 200 yards down the middle of the fairway. After the round she thanked me and I gave her mother and my card and that following week they fired her coach and hired me and two weeks later she made the senior varsity team as a freshman


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

I would say there is a lot of bad information out there especially YouTube videos, the problem is everybody is unique there is only one of you, everybody has different mobility different flexibility and a different way of thinking, you have to address all those things and address how the human body moves in general that is where my specialization comes into play because I am also a doctor of clinical exercise physiology and I know how the body moves. 

For example there is no rotation in the hip area let me correct that no major rotation in the hip area as you would be led to believe, but the most important rotation is your shoulder rotation and sometimes that comes with flexibility training


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

Honestly what you really want out of the game. Is it the lower your handicap is it to strike the ball better is it to have more confidence is it to think less and swing more. Sometimes it is not just about asking a question it is asking the right question.
