Shane was very helpful!
Super cool instructor, very patient and helpful! I learned so much, high tech stuff! I highly recommend Shane he was amazing, taking another class next week.
I like to get to know my students. I'll start with asking some questions about thier goals, theories/ideas about the golf swing, and if they have any previous injuries.
Once I learn a little avout them I let them know what I think about the golf swing and the way the body move throughout the swing.
From there I like to gather data on their ability to move via a TPI golf fitness assessment. Finally, I get a MRI view of their swing by using the biofeedback system called K-Vest.
I went the Golf Academy of America were we focused on all aspects of golf including teaching, club fitting/repair. I am a level 2 K-Vest instructor as well as level 1 TPI.
I am also going through the PGA certification program.
I charge $100 per lesson. This includes a K-Vest evaluation to help the me better understand where to start focus and help the student understand why.
I also have a package that consists of 5 lessons and 1 9 hole playing lessons for $500.
As long as I can remeber I have had a way of building people up, as I am a very postitve person. It wasn't until I went to the Golf Academy of America and gave a handful of lessons to my peers that I really fell in love with teach/helping others. I get a huge kick out of seeing people do something that they couldn't do before or didn't know how to do.
That is why I teach, to see the wow in my students eyes.and theit smiles when they hit the ball better than they did before.
I focus on men, women, and children who are beginners to high single handicap players.
I have a student Scott W. who hadn't swung a club for 2 years, had a couple of injuries to his neck, shoulder, and lower back through oit the years.
Needless to say he didn't have high expectations for himself and was a little skeptical about what I was offering.
After making a couple changes to his posture and one lesson he went from topping the ball with his irons to getting it airborne and relatively straight.
It was the look on his face when he hit the ball high and straight that made my day.
Don't be afraid to ask questions and give feedback. If the instructor asks you to do something and it doesn't make sense or feel right, ask for clarification.
Also, if something hurts let them know. We are here to make you better, if we hurt you that is bad for both you and the instructor.
What am I looking to do with golf? Play with friends, win my league, etc
How do I learn? Visual, Doing, Thinking, etc
How much time am I willing to commit to practicing what I have learned? If you don't set some time aside to practice what you have learned, you might as well just save your money, as thr 1 hour a week will not allow for lasting changes, therefore wasting your time and money.
