Golf swings are like fingerprints with no two swings identical. I have the background, knowledge and ability to marry that uniqueness with instruction patterned for each individual. I have studied the swings of Hogan, Nelson, Snead, Palmer, Nicklaus and last but not least Woods. I have studied the teachings of many of the top teachers, and have been certified by Hank Haney as a TOP instructor and studied with his number one assistant and partner Steve Johnson who is ranked as one of the top 20 teachers in America. We can get as technical as you want to get, or we can keep it as simple as you need to have your instruction. I know there are many ways to get to where you want go, whether it seems conventional or not. The bottom line is how can we change or improve your ball flight and I have the answers. All you have to do is follow the plan.
