Of all the hazards, fear is the worst.
- Sam Snead -

Success in any pursuit requires a growth mindset. The greatest golfers are curious explorers, not critical judges. Golf lessons are about discovering the ideal swing for you, given your goals, your body's strength and flexibility, and your available time. There is no one way to play golf or swing a golf club. Approaching golf with a narrow mindset only serves to generate fear. Fear of swinging the wrong way. Fear of looking foolish. Fear of never getting it. Fear is counterproductive to learning as it puts your body in a physical, mental, and emotional state rich with interference. Golf lessons are about increasing your awareness of your current swing/game and empowering you to make the necessary adjustments to meet your desired goals.
All of my golf instruction is given at Tallwood Country Club, a championship 18-hole golf course with an exceptional practice facility. Enjoy two large putting greens, a chipping and pitching area with a target green surrounded by three practice bunkers, and a large driving range. On course lessons are available, but must be scheduled directly with me to assure coures availability.

For your convenience, you can schedule a private lessons online or you can call me directly at 860-334-2080.
