The Most Used Club in Your Bag!

Posted on: 06 Jul 2022

As a golf pro I have many people ask me what driver they should get, when they should be asking about what putter they should get. It’s really a math question, how many strokes did you take using your putter vs. all your other clubs? Look at this example; On a par 72 golf course […]

Interview them!

Posted on: 06 Jun 2022

When you were in school, what classes did you get good grades in? Not just the subject, but probably because you liked the teacher. First, you can search for reviews. Then through a phone conversation, email, or in person, ask questions. Such as; What is your teaching philosophy? What type of learner are you? Analytical […]

Use your imagination!

Posted on: 11 Apr 2022

So many players choose that “favorite” club that they almost always use to chip. I feel if they use a little imagination visualizing what they want to do, it will help them choose the right club. First, is there any obstacle between you and the hole? If there is just green, you have many options. […]

Easiest Shot in Golf

Posted on: 07 Mar 2022

The reason it’s the easiest shot in golf, it’s the only one you don’t hit the ball. Typical “rules of thumb”, on fairway bunkers, all ball, no sand, green side bunkers, all sand, no ball. My choice is my 52 degree wedge opened up using the same swing I would with a 56 degree wedge. […]

Follow the stream…

Posted on: 28 Feb 2022

I imagine holding a garden hose with a steady stream of water to “see” the way it would flow to the hole. You can put your putter down simulating the hose. Another part is looking for the lowest point of the green, or around the section of the green you are on. I hope this […]

Swing with the hill!

Posted on: 21 Feb 2022

First thing is the ball is going right. Second, align your shoulders with the slope. Third, stay down & swing with the hill.

A little butterflies are good!

Posted on: 15 May 2020

Being a little nervous is usually good, it helps you concentrate & perform better. Take a deep breath, “see” your shot in your mind & take your swing. Trust it, you will do fine!

Major Changes!

Posted on: 10 Apr 2020

Two of us have moved from the golf shop to the grounds crew, also going from salary to hourly. Clubhouse is completely closed, no pull carts or carts, ball washers are covered with trash bags, practice range is closed, yet Wednesday, we had 110 members play! They want to get out of the house! It’s […]

I use easy to understand terms & items, such as the range ball basket

Posted on: 07 Dec 2019

I love this topic because I like to keep it simple & not overwhelm my students. I use easy to understand terms & items, such as the range ball basket. I have the student hold the basket with hands open & toss it to me like it’s their golf swing. I don’t want them to […]

I use Hudl Technique app.

Posted on: 10 Oct 2019

I use Hudl Technique app. It is for many sports, but records in slo-mo. Can do all the normal lines, etc. I like it!

I do not use it at all. I would only do so during a fitting.

Posted on: 26 Sep 2019

I do not use it at all. I would only do so during a fitting. The average golfers has many other issues he/she has going on & ball flight is not one of them, (except getting the ball in the air)!

I just got fitted for an Evnroll by Guerrin Rife

Posted on: 01 Aug 2019

I just got fitted for an Evnroll by Guerrin Rife. I was using a Rife answer type blade before & am now in a mallet. Why? Because we discovered during the fitting I was aiming high & left, but then switched to the mallet & wow, right on line & making more putts! In the […]

I would put Firestone CC up there, Cherokee Ridge CC in Alabama, and Lake Nona in Florida.

Posted on: 18 Jul 2019

I have played many, from Michigan to Georgia, Florida, Utah, Indiana, Ohio and more. I would put Firestone CC up there, Cherokee Ridge CC in Alabama, and Lake Nona in Florida. There are so many great courses out there, I do not have one particular favorite!
