    Steve was very knowledgeable. He had some great drills ang had a great way of explaining what I was doing wrong and how to improve. I will hire Steve again soon.

  • Max Dolder

    Great drills. Lot of patience. Highly recommend for all levels.

  • Alec Vicknair

    Steve is great to work with. We covered a lot of ground on one lesson. Steve had simple to understand and effective tweaks that helped get my swing in shape. He left me with several drills to practice on the range that I found to be useful. He is very passionate about the game and it shows in his lesson. Will take more lessons with Steve in the future.

  • Stuart Kapp

    Steve is a very good golf instructor, and I very much appreciated his approach. He is very patient and skilled teacher that can employ many drills to help with overcoming any issues you have. I have had two lessons with Steve and have seen measurable results in my confidence and consistency. The part that I am most happy with is that in my lessons with Steve he is teaching me what I am doing wrong and why the ball is doing what it does. I now know why I miss shots, and have the drills to address those misses when they occur to ensure I am getting better when practicing alone. Steve has given me the tools to be as good a golfer as I want to be, and I am very excited to see how I continue to progress while working with Steve in the future.

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

We will discuss what your expectations are and what will be involved in reaching those expectations.

We will then insure you have a solid grip and a sound practice routine.
I believe in starting where you will need to be the most consistent which is 3 feet from the hole and working back to the driver.
But if you have a specific problem area to target we can do that as well.

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

Studied under Harvey penick.
also studied Ben Hogan, Sam Snead,Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus,Tom Watson,Dave Pelz, Lee Trevino and Johnny Miller.
I have been a student of the game since I took my first swing.
at 65 I am still a single digit HDC.
Shot 67 last  year.
This is because I have sound fundamentals,a repeating swing,superb course management,and a great short game.
all of which you can posses.

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

60.00 per session
9 hole on course sessions are available.
Group sessions on a per case basis
very affordable if you are commited to your child's progress.
arrangements will be discussed with parents

How did you get started teaching?

Became a student of the game, turned professional, started giving advice to fellow competitors on the practice tee and quickly realized that I was a much better teacher than I was a player.
So here we are.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all types and levels of players from 
Special Olympics
Senior citizens 
Aspiring professionals 
There are no bad students, only bad teachers.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Operation Military Embrace annual golf tournament.
Created and run by one of my former students (and scratch golfer) who is now ASSISTANT PROFESSIONAL @  Jersey Meadows Golf Club in Houston Texas.

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

Pick a teacher you can relate to.
someone that is approachable and a good listener.
ask to see his training aids and ask if he can hit a few balls for you.

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

Students should ask themselves how much personal time they are willing to dedicate to becoming a better golfer.
golf is not a difficult game to play if you have good solid fundamentals and take the neccesary time to ingrain those fundamentals.
Once you "get it" you got it.
