"I'm not for everybody, and I don't pretend to be " -Michael Dutro, PGA

Have you ever heard that you have to get worse before you get better? I assure you that the person that said that was a great salesman and a lousy golf coach. I believe that you should get better with each and every lesson, and as well as seeing the ball fly towards the target more often, should understand how you created that ball-flight so you can reproduce it, or alter it if the ball-flight isn't what you desired. 

There are exactly three different directions you can point the Club Face at impact, Left, Right, and Straight. There are exactly three directions your Club Head can travel, Left of target, Right of target, and Straight at the target. This means that there are nine different possible outcomes. These are the 9 possible ball flights. Understanding how to create these ball-flights is the key to understanding your swing on a deeper level. 

I believe that every student deserves my very best, and this is why I employ all of the latest technology and training aides available. The more ways I am able to deliver the same message to a student, the more likely they are to understand what they are trying to accomplish.  I hold myself to very high standards which is why I am a Class A PGA Member and Trackman Certified Level 2. I continue to develop my understanding of the human body as well as learn new technology to be able to meet the every changing demands of my students. I truly believe in being the best instructor possible, are you ready to be the best student possible?

Trackman 4 Is Here

Golf practice and player development are going through a period of tremendous change, and technology is a central component in that transformation. The mapping of swing DNA is now possible, as is the quantification and comparison of swing feel vs. real. Technology also empowers us to monitor granular swing changes over time. These are just a few, compelling examples of how to unleash talent more effectively.
