Been playing golf for over 40 years w/ a single digit handicap and I understand the mechanics of the golf swing to help amateurs achieve their goals. I work with single digit handicap to beginners.
Have played in US Open Qualifiers and enjoy teaching the game to those who want to have an enjoyable golf experience. I've been teaching since last decade where students learn to get better at their own pace. Hit 'em straight, long and learn the game to lower scores. My goal is to teach students a simple, repeatable golf swing.
I love teaching students to understand the knowledge of basic techniques of grip, stance, weight shift, backswing and downswing. I make sure my students understand where they are and where they need to be in all aspects of the game, especially their swing mechanics. It's a game you can play for the good part of your life. Golf is a work in progress that takes time and commitment, but can be extremely rewarding.
First of all, I am as beginner as it gets! I picked up a club for the first time 3 weeks ago and the consensus of everyone I ran into was build a foundation through lessons since I don’t have years of bad habits to break or change. Right off the start, the message sent to me from Bill told me exactly what he wanted to work on before we even stepped on the range. His communication before, during and even after was and has been top notch! One of the things that personally hit home for me was Bill isn’t a sit back and tell you and expect you to figure it out. He doesn’t just coach, he can play, he will show you exactly what he is asking you to do! Not only was he hitting the ball further with his 5iron then the guys hitting their drivers. He was calling his spot and drawing and fading on demand. Point being, I felt he was there teaching me because he genuinely loves the game because from what I saw he is more then capable to compete in tournaments where I am certain the payout is more then his affordable hourly rate. That being said, on top of the communication he actually got there 15 mins early to get started with me and stayed over the hour. This session produced my best hitting since I picked up the clubs. He left me with plenty to work on before our next session! Thx again, Bill!
I had the recommendation and opportunity to ride with Bill for a round of golf last week. I recently retired and now had the time to pick up the game again after rarely playing for the last 30 years. Over that time I’d lost much of the core fundamentals. I asked Bill just to observe my game so that when I took lessons from him he would be aware of areas I needed to improve upon. After a few holes, he offered some simple suggestions which I tried to apply the remainder of the round. They involved loosening up techniques, grip, stance and swing plane. It was a little difficult to follow at first as I felt that my swing was totally changed. I continued the round and worked on concentrating on the changes to my swing. I played again four days later and continued to do the same with my swing changes as recommended. I slowly started to feel more comfortable and that I was making a better connection with the ball. A subsequent result was I scored my first hole-in-one in that following round after more than 50 years of playing golf. I plan on using Bill to further improve my game and would highly recommend him. His knowledge of the fundamentals and techniques are incredible.
Bill has been great to work with. He has been patient and helped improve my game quickly. I highly recommend Bill to help improve any aspect of your golf game.
I like his personality, style and willingness to make small changes to make consistent improvements. He does not over load you and works with your ability and current swing. I will continue with Bill.
I ask their experience w/ the game of golf and then their individual goals. Everyone is different in the knowledge and experience. I can very quickly analyze their swing and make changes for immediate effect.
Many years of mostly self taught getting to a low single digit handicap.
I was asked last decade to start teaching since I played many rounds and have a practical approach to the game. During this relationship w/ Lessons.com, I have learned that my teaching techniques are simply communicated and understood by my students.
It gives me great joy to see this progress and to hear from my students their successes on the range and on the course after our sessions.
From beginners to low handicap players.
Look for someone who has passion for the game of golf.
Depends on where one is w/ their game. That's why I want students to tell me their experience and goals.
