Golf Instruction Philosophy:
"In order to create a proper golf swing, the basic fundamentals of golf must be built first (grip, ball position, posture, alignment and stance). It's important that the swing is built around a person's needs and abilities; no one swing fits all. Furthermore, keeping the game of golf fun and light is and will always be the most important aspect."
