I’ve got to start charging more, or less…

19 October 2014

Last week was a wild ride. I had a few very good sessions with several new students and complete failures with others. My mother told me if I try my best and are sincere that everything would be fine, but when you are a perfectiionist, not in writing or spelling, but in golf and teaching […]

If I had a dime everytime I heard, “I want to quit the game..,”

22 September 2014

Tom is a good guy who hits balls at the range a couple times a week. He’s not what I would call a great golfer, high eighties, low ninties shooter. Good guy, though. He hits the ball okay. A few months ago I gave him a book to read, Why does the second putt always […]

How to teach your kid how to play golf…

20 September 2014

The majority of my time instructing children how to play golf is first to deprogram them from other shoddy instruction.  Let me tell you this loud and clear, there is no reason to give a child specific instruction. I will say it in another way, there is no reason to give a child specific instruction. […]

Three eight year olds in a row, then a 5 and a 7 year old.

15 September 2014

No.., I’m sorry I don’t give golf lessons to kids. No. They are too much work.., I am sorry.   That is what I would usually say to someone calling me to teach kids. They are certainly a good source of income. That’s the truth. If they like me they will be with me until […]

Sumit and Semeer, my favorite father son duo…

31 August 2014

During the last couple years I’ve been instructing golf to two of the more pleasurable students you can have,  Sumit and Sumeer. Sumeer started with me when he was seven years old and now he is at the ripe young age of eight. He’s a bit of a golfing genius. He picks up whatever I […]

Two of the same lessons with different results…

28 August 2014

In the past two weeks I’ve had two students encounter the same exact thing when not hitting the ball solidly and once the same thing was told to them they began to hit the ball much better.   Chris asked me to help him with his driver. On a driving range the tees are those […]

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 […]
