Teaching Approach
I try to teach students at their own pace and their own rate of understanding. Therefore, I prefer to schedule a series of lessons for beginners so as not to confuse them with too much information at once. With new students, I start with chipping and putting to emphasize to them the importance of the short game in shooting a low score. This method also keeps them from getting discouraged when they graduate to the golf course. Too many new golfers get proficient at hitting full shots only to throw strokes away around the greens resulting in high scores. By the time my beginners reach the course, they understand how a good short game can actually their score on days when they might be spraying their tee shots or are not being as accurate as usual with their irons.

Success Stories
Several golfers in my past junior golf programs went on to be excellent adult golfers, some doing quite well at amateur state tournament levels. My most successful students are those I take on as beginners who follow my teaching program in a series of lessons all the way up to the advanced level. Several of my junior students have received college golf scholarships, and I also work with age 50+ golfers who have played professionally at some level.
