Teaching Philiosphy & Fitting Plan
-I believe everybody is different and everybody's swing is different, but we all have the same goal-to play better and have fun. Before the learning process starts, I want to know my students short term and long term goals and what they would like to accomplish. Once I learn this, I now have the ability to help them achieve that goal. A successful teacher is someone who is a great listener and learner. During my lessons, I like to use technology (V1 Software) to gain an even better understanding of what my students want to accomplish. I firmly feel, "seeing is believing".
-Just like a lesson, everyone is different and should be fit for their equipment. The slightest tweak in equipment can make a large difference in someone's golf game.
