Teaching philosophy: Teach each individual differently according to their strengths and weakness while eliminating any unnecessary moving parts of the golf swing – this allows the swing to be as simple as possible and instills confidence in the student. Teach the student to use the big muscles to create power with minimum of effort, also allowing for greater consistency. Priority is put in center face strike the learning club face management. Then create an effective training method according to each players' goals to make required swing changes in the most efficient possible way.. Boykin understands that everyone learns differently and there is no one "perfect swing". He will work with your learning style and help you build skills that transfer to the golf course.
I enjoy teaching a lifelong game/activity to everyone. I have really enjoyed building one of the biggest youth golf programs in the state over the last several years. Helping people with their golf swings has allowed me to meet so many different kinds of people, wonderful people who have taught me many different things along the way.
