I enjoy showing people of all ages how to play better golf. Also this is a great way for me to give back to our community as I ask the student to bring a item or two for the local food pantry.
Its fun to see improvement in a student's game. I like it when a ball is hit correctly and the reaction. Its fun!
Brent watched my swing and gave me a few clear, simple instructions. I feel much more confident and I'm hitting the ball more consistently.
I like to find out what the goal of the student is first with their golf game. I will watch the student hit a 7 iron a few times and then go from there. I usually give 1 or 2 things to work on per session. Students need to understand that it really takes about 3 or 4 lessons to get on the right track.
I was a Jr. College All-American at Temple Jr. College and then played for Houston Baptist University (NCAA Div 1 at the time). 1980-1983. It paid my way thru school and I had a great time. My daughter was the #1 player for Round Rock HS and I taught her how to play.
I usually charge $25 for a one hour lesson and ask the student to bring 1 or 2 items for the local food pantry as a way to give back into the community.
I just have a knack for seeing the flaw instantly and making the correction in someone elses swing. Its a gift that good teachers have.
All ages. I really want to work with kids who want to go on and play for their HS team and then on to College and if good enough try the tour.
I helped my wife's friend with her swing and she is really excited about learning and playing the game on a regular basis.
Find someone who has been around the game for a long time. I started at age 8. Also find someone who can keep it simple and communicate well.
What are your goals? What kind of grades are you making in school? (If you want to play at a high level coaches are going to want good students in the classroom as well.)
