About this pro

Do you want to hit better shots, shoot lower scores and have more fun on the course? Frank will make that happen!

As one of Golf Tips Magazine's top 25 golf instructors, PGA Teaching Professional, Frank O'Connell will take the complexity away from learning. The number one issue golf instructors hear from students is "I would like to be more consistent". Frank has a simple philosophy, "The Basic Four Golf Groups", grip, posture, alignment and balance. These four fundamentals are essential for making a good athletic move. The positions that we have at set-up will tell us what we can and can not do in the golf swing. Frank feels that every golfer can start like a tour player and finish like one by correctly utilizing "The Basic Four Golf Groups."

I now teach and do club fittings with TrackMan4, which provides 3D imaging of ball flight, club face, face angle and so much more. TrackMan4 also offers the TrackMan Combine Test which is a standardized test that enables golfers to identify their shot making skills as well as benchmark their performance with players of any level. I'm also a certified club fitter for TITLEIST Golf.

  • Heinz Roth

    He was able to quickly diagnose my problem and give 2 concrete things to work on in my swing. Additionally he told me about my need to improve flexibility

  • Larry Penfield

    He listens. The changes are not easy but they aren’t meant to be. He gets it.

  • Jeff M Savannah Georgia

    His communication was excellent! He improved my golf scores and with the TPI program I feel better. Thanks Frank

    I have taken lesson from about 5 other pros to help me hit the ball in the air, none of them could do it. I decided to take 1 lesson with Frank to see if he could help. In the end of our lesson I was hitting the ball in the air. I have talked another 4 lessons from him, and I am so happy, finally hitting the ball in the air regularly. Thank you Frank you have saved my game. Grisell
