Why I Teach: I believe the art to teaching is knowing what to change and what to leave alone. I pride myself in understanding all the factors in one’s golf swing and understanding those that steepen impact and those that shallow an impact. Understanding that is key to being able to pick the one or two items that will help the player play better golf immediately and not have to overhaul their golf swing. People quit because thy are not improving. Our job as instructors is to help a student play better golf right now, not months from now.
