Today, Katie Robinson is answering 10 questions in our Get to Know Your Pro Series.
Katie Robinson was born and raised in Southern California. At the age of 10, she started playing golf as a way to spend time with her dad. He instilled in her the importance of honesty, respect, and good sportsmanship through this great game.
When it comes to teaching, her approach is to build her lesson plans to meet the player’s individual goals. A player’s swing can vary depending on the player’s physical ability so it’s important to take all criteria into consideration when designing a lesson plan. Fundamentals are keys to the start of a good golf swing and correctly practicing the fundamentals is the best way to improve a player’s game. It’s also important to sharpen a player’s fundamentals while building new skills. Katie’s goal for students is to improve their game so they can enjoy this wonderful game all their life.
