About this pro

My lessons are an informal approach to learning to play and enjoy golf based on little formal training. A lesson or two here and there, almost 60 years of playing the game, building my own swing, and turning myself into a 2-handicap at one time by watching and listening to teachers like Hank Haney, Sean Foley, David Leadbetter, Rick Smith, A.J. Bonar, Dave Pelz, and countless others.  I have over 200 traditional golf lesson videos on my computer.  I'm also a Master Club Fitter, certified by Callaway, TaylorMade, PING, Mizuno, Cobra, and Titleist.  And I believe I have a knack for teaching the golf swing.

Most recently I've been certified as a Movement Specialist for Tahatagolf.com, an online golf training program based on ancient martial arts movements involved in swinging  swords and babmboo fighting sticks.  I have to say that in my 50+ years of golf swing study, Tathata is most unique and effective method I've encountered for understanding and teaching the simple essentials for delivering a golf club to the ball with maximum efficiency.   If you decide to subscribe to Tathata online training, use the promo code squiresgolf to receive a discount on the 60-day training.  I am available to reinforce their methodology and apply the training to your golf swing.

Seeing people progress and enjoying what I'm showing them how to do.

  • Benjamin Franks

    Incredible insight and instruction. He teaches you how to listen to your body’s movements and adjust them. After one lesson my swing feels more aligned and comfortable. I am aiming the shot instead of swinging at it.

  • Michael St. Pierre

    Very knowledgeable and patient, knows the game but more importantly knows how to teach it.

  • Jimmy Ott

    Raleigh is very personable, knowledgeable, has a keen understanding of the fundamentals and works to understand your needs so that he can design training that best best suits the clients need. Would recommend Raleigh to anyone, whether just starting out or someone who has played the game for years.

  • Dean Diehl

    Raleigh is patient, explains things well, and works with your swing, not some "one size fits all" formula. His approach is exactly what I was looking for.

FAQs


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

Depending on what skill level and experience a student has, I try to incorporate a swing training regimen to my lessons that involve the proper movements necessary to make a good golf swing.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Years of experience working on my own golf swing, studying the techniques of teachers like Hank Haney, Sean Foley, David Leadbetter, Dave Pelz, and numerous others, with over 150 downloaded instructional videos to reference.  However, my methods are different than most, based on a martial arts "striking" training program adapted to golf.  Very simple.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My fee is $40 per hour but flexible.


How did you get started teaching?

My 8-year experience and successes I've had as a certified master-club-fitter has proven to me that I have something to offer any golfer and instilled in me the confidence to do it.


What types of students have you worked with?

All skill levels.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A customer I fitted for golf clubs approached me recently and said, "I just want to shake your hand because what you taught me has taken 5 to 7 strokes off my game."  The person with him, who I assume was a frequent golf/gambling partner said, "And I'm not speaking to you."


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

Don't expect miracles and focus on the fundamentals and give yourself a reasonable expectation and give yourself time to progress.


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

How much patience and tolerance for frustration do you have?
