My Experience & Philosophy
I have over 30 years of experience as a PGA of Canada Professional. Over this time I have crafted his teaching skills at some of countries top facilities most notably as the Director of Instruction at Arnold Palmer's Whistler Golf Club, Clublink Academy at Glen Abbey and Glencarin Golf Academy. Along with my extensive teaching background I have been club fitting and club building as long as I have been in the golf business.
I am a true student of the game and am always learning, my library is full of books and videos from the most noted names in the game. I have taken many lessons and attended many seminars to learn every thing I can, but with this game of golf it is hard to figure it out and there is always more you can learn to offer my students the best situation to learn and get better.
There are three main parts to golf. The golf swing, the short game and the mind game. It is important to learn not only the swing but the mechanics and inner workings of the body and mind.
I find that most people can grasp the mechanics of the swing and short game the real trouble I see students struggle with is taking it from the lesson tee to the course. That I believe happens because they are approaching the course with the same thoughts as the range. Golf is broken down into two games. One is "golf swing" which we learn and improve their technique. Then there is "Golf" in which the object is to get the little white ball in the hole in the least amount of shots as possible. Far too often players end up playing "golf swing on the course and not golf. This is where I try to get my players thinking different things in different situations.
My philosophies are rooted in fundamentals and working with what people have to make them better. There are many ways to play the game of golf and each person is different, so the my approach is not a one size fits all. So if you are looking to get better I am here to help.
