He believes that fundamentals, learning to coach yourself, and designing a practical practice for his students will maximize their improvement over time. He creates his approach for each student after getting to know the student’s traits and sports background to customize and individualize his approach. Lastly, he understands the importance of having fun plays in productive lessons and continued improvement in the great game of golf.
