About this pro

Certified International Master Teaching Professional Karl Fischer is a retired heavy category airline captain, 'Professional Flight Engineer' ('PFe'), 'Airline Transport Pilot' ('ATR') with years of experience as a very specialized ground instructor ('CGI-A'), flight instructor ('CFI-CFII-MEI') and a specialized 'CSIP' with RCH, SES-MES and twenty-three additional 'Flight Certificates'. His accomplishments include both commercial floatplane and helicopter among many other ratings. He is passionate about flying and is fortunate in having the opportunity to teach others how to do so ... two baseline characteristics that daily carry over to 'His Other Passion', teaching the 'Great Game Of Golf' to so many good people. Fischer, a Canadian American, has now spent some thirty-five plus years teaching golf nationally and internationally earning the title of 'IGAD - Doctorate', 'CIMTP - Certified International Master Teaching Professional', 'CMCB - Certified Master Club-Builder' and 'CGC - Certified Golf Clinician'. Working in conjunction with the University of British Columbia, Kwantlen and Douglas Colleges as well as the IRGO Golf Academy, Dr. Fischer has been very active in the operation of wholesale and retail golf operations in both Canada and the United States. It is estimated that the number of 'Junior Lessons' during Karl's career, years ago, totaled in excess of 30,000. Every year Dr. Fischer organized golf clinics for bright-eyed youngsters helping them to better understand the 'Golf Swing' and thus have more 'FUN'. Seventy to eighty students per day, four days a week for ten to twelve weeks every summer adds up. His personal clients number well in excess of 10,000 students, a third of whom are still on his mailing list and contact him regularly for advice! He says emphatically, "A good golf lesson is simple and always helps as long as the student and teacher are on the same page and doing smart work. 'Fitness' is a primary factor as well! My students are living testimony! The '555 TEAM' has an unusual and sincere 'Satisfaction Guaranteed' policy. What we do every day truly works wonders!" Dr. Fischer, who formerly worked with top 100 teaching professionals such as, Jim McLean and Scott Sackett goes on to say, "The 555 Team's unique 'Airline Method' of 'Brief-Teach-De-Brief' separates us from our competitors. We never move on until we specifically detail personal improvements and understand how and why they occurred. The 'De-Briefing' is summarized 'In Writing'. If we cannot get the core information through the student's eyes and ears, it will never come out of the clubhead. 'High Speed Video Capture' is a big asset. This is where the '555 Value' really shines!" Karl tells us that "Golf is a 'Life-Long Leisure Skill' that warrants our dedication! It is a wonderful endless 'Journey'. It is never too late to start improving and having more 'FUN'. Don't miss one more moment!"

We are very good at helping people better enjoy 'The Great Game Of Golf'. Accomplishing that is a real thrill and pleasure. Amazingly we have clients who have been with 'The 555 Team' for twenty years and more. Why si that? Our proven '555 System' really works permanently and affordably! Satisfaction Guaranteed'!

How did you get started teaching?

My start, Dr. Karl Fischer, came without any instruction. I quit after a very short time. I was 14 and done with 'Golf'. My father was not at all pleased. About 19, in PFe school, I had a little time to dabble with my 'Putter'. She taught me the real ground floor basics. I was bitten and sought out the absolute best teachers I could get to. That was key to my decades of experience and performance.

Now you can avoid the 'Going it Alone Syndrome'. 

Give 'The 555 Team' a call without delay.

What types of students have you worked with?

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

Do a lot of 'Due Care & Diligence'. Ask around. Demand to see the instructors successsful clients personally. How students feel combined with how they actuall perform is the 'Keystone' upon which your decisions must be made.

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

Get references and read testimonials! Make sure your prospective instructor talks more about you than about him or herself. The lessons are about 'YOU'!
