Why I Teach: I love nothing more than to open the “next door” to game improvement for any student that comes to my lesson tee. Teaching sound basic fundamentals of the “launching pad,” grip, stance, aim, posture, and spacing are often overlooked in the complex world. Without those fundamentals in a perfect condition, a successful “blast off” is highly unlikely!
