How to Sucker your Students into taking more lessons…

13 August 2014

I used to play golf with my buddy Toby. He was probably one of the best ball strikers I’ve ever seen. Couldn’t hit a driver straight or putt very well, but his irons were better than any tour player I’ve seen. One day I am caddying for him in the New Jersey Open Qualifier and […]

What is our job as a Golf Teaching Professional?

12 August 2014

I don’t know how many students I’ve had over the years but it has been many. I have gotten good players to be better, poor players to be competent. Each individual golfer is unique. I wouldn’t even attempt to instruct different people in the same way. We all have our strengths and weaknesses; some physical […]

I played with normal people….

05 August 2014

Last Tuesday I played with normals. Normals are people who have a life other than golf. They do not live, drink and eat it. They play when they have off to have fun. Imagine that…, to have fun. Anyway, one of my playing partners was hitting the ball in the woods to the right. She […]

What is your question, ask and I will answer the best I could…

12 May 2014

I recently gave a series of seminars and before I begin I always ask my audience if they have any comments or questions.  Here are just a few.    How many of these things have you ever said to yourself?   “I have too many thoughts before I hit the ball.”   “I can string […]

Just another lesson:

10 May 2014

Josh came to me all messed up. He’d taken one lesson from me last year and then gone out and shot his lowest score ever. His best previous was an 88 and the week after the session he shot 82. The winter we had was a hard one and so he came back and you […]

My Fate…

04 May 2014

Lately, I have come across the most difficult people to instruct golf to. Don’t get me wrong I like the challenge, but not the hike in blood pressure. I promise I am giving them good advice, leading them to make their own discoveries and testing them the best way I know how. They seem to […]

Name me another sport where you are told you get worse before you get better…

21 April 2014

What kind of cock and bull is that for a way to begin a sport. The sport is in trouble for a reason, the main reason is the antiquated teaching methods most golf pressionals use. Not every one has this issue, I’ve seen some pretty darn good work out that but from mostly dedicated students. […]

Spine Angle or Center of Gravity? (will edit later)

17 April 2014

It’s come to mind golf instruction is more about communication than anything else. Misidentification or misdiagnosis of a swing are two of the issues concerning me all the time, which is why I focus on the five basics: The Ball Bounces The Club Does the Work Wherever your Center is, is where the club is […]

What If I could prove the golf swing is a natural act?

16 April 2014

What if I could prove the golf swing is a natural act? What would that do to the industry? What would it do to the teaching industry? We, all of us, get so bogged down with the mechanics of the swing, even the touring professionals, we forget it’s a game. Bubba knows it’s a natural […]

Golf Lessons or Prison Sentence?

15 April 2014

I know guys who’ve been taking golf lessons from the same guy for over thirty years. What kind of BS is that? A guy innocently signs up for one lesson and the next thing you know they are making monthly condo payments. Nice work if you can get it, eh? So a guy comes into […]
