Teaching Philosophy

I believe for a player to play their best, they must have an understanding of cause and effect of their ball flight.For a player to be successful, they must understand their swing tendencies, recognize that they are occurring based on their ball flight, and know what they must do to correct them. Once a player understands their swing and the resulting shots that it produces, they must learn how to practice for effective transfer to the course.
