Do you teach any professionals?
I teach other golf professionals the skills related to teaching such as motor learning, motor control, teacher effectiveness, and other topics behind skill acquisition.
What is your favorite golf memory?
The most thrilling experience in golf for me was playing with Vice President Biden.
What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy for teaching is to deliver simple and effective instruction to improve students’ performance. I use a combination of core principles from biomechanics, scientific research in motor learning and educational psychology as a framework. My goal is to maximize the time I spend with students to help them learn efficiently.
What is the most common error you see with a new golfer?
New golfers don’t know where to bottom out the club. They hit behind the ball, in front of the ball, on top of the ball. A new player should spend time hitting a specific spot on the ground to learn where that club makes contact. When the player learns this, the contact with the ball will drastically improve.
What do you want players to get out of your lesson plans?
The lesson plans aren’t going to solve every problem for everyone, but they have enough good information that everyone can pick up at least one or two important tips to help you go low!
