Teaching Philosophy

Three principles guide our lesson programming.

1. Each individual’s physical capabilities.
2. Each individual's understanding of the golf swing and their learning style.
3. The golf club's influence on ball flight.

Clubfitting

We can use the technology of Flightscope as the science in our clubfitting sessions, recommending only the clubs that enhance your enjoyment of the game.

Flightscope is a technical tool that measures two important factors that help us understand your golf swing. First, it measures the entire ball flight, right from impact to landing. It gives us readings on ball speed, spin rate, spin axis, distance, height and true distance. Second, it measures the club head through the impact zone and tells us your club face angle, path and speed. Flightscope is a staple in our clubfitting service and serves as a handy tool on the lesson tee.
