About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am a PGA Member with over 20,000 lessons taught since 1995. By successfully coaching hundreds of students, I have valuable experience and knowledge in teaching the proper fundamentals and techniques that are necessary to help lower your scores.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy helping my students learn how to play better golf. I use the same passion in every lesson with my students as I had when I first started playing golf over 35 years ago. Since then, I have played both as an amateur and as a professional. No matter what your golf experience may be, I guarantee we all have one thing in common. We all desire to shoot lower scores and have more fun playing golf!

    Kept it simple so I could concentrate on 1 or 2 things since I've been out of the game a long time.

    Wordy review! Chip was exactly what we needed!!
    Was an amazing experience from start to finish! Responsive: responded with quote within an hour of my post, Rate: quote came in lower than almost everyone (made me hesitate briefy but continue reading! Thank God I didn't pass this by!) Accommodating: delivered gift certificate for my husband and scheduled lesson, last minute, exceeding my expectations Superior Credentials: uses the latest technology to provide absolute top-notch learning experience, along with take-home video so new skills are not lost after lesson Charismatic/friendly: while I was very comfortable on the phone, I did not meet Chip in person- this was for my husband, so the following feedback is from him. "Chip made me feel at ease and was extremely professional, yet I felt like he was one of my friends. Excellent teacher and the time went by quickly, with clear improvement where I needed it most. I will definitely continue lessons and would recommend him to anyone needing to improve!" I realize this is a bit wordy, but warranted. Chip is top-notch!!!!

    I Have worked with Chip multiple times over the last 10 years, he's very smart and can explain his teachings in many ways to make it make sense to a scratch golfer or a beginner. Highly recommend to anyone and he's great with kids.

    Outstanding Golf Professional
    Chip is a great teacher. He really focuses on the fundamentals of the golf swing and gives you several easy drills to reinforce what you've learned. Receiving real time video feedback is very helpful too. I highly recommend Chip as a golf professional and teacher. Tony Miceli

    Stay with the plan-- it works
    I have been working with Chip for about six months now. Chip has extensive experience and knowledge of the modern day golf swing. His use of video offers immediate feedback and allows the student to learn from visualization. I have been playing golf on and off for years and never had many lessons-- so I was one band aid after band aid to try to play golf. Chip went back to basics; aim, alignment, stability, balance, rotation and such. I have total confidence in what Chip is saying and his teachings. My swing is markedly improved from when we first met, scores are dropping, and will continue working with Chip for years to come. Many kudos!

    Best Youth Golf Coach in Palm Beach County!
    Chip is a great coach for my son. My son was taught the skills he needed to play in tournaments in a professional and fun way. All the kids on his league benifit from Chips knowledge of golf and how to teach youth. My son has been going to Chip for lessons,camps, and Laurie for years and will continue to. Great guy and great coach! Can't go wrong with Chip!

    Golf swing master
    Chip is an excellent golf coach. He provides a number of tools that are essential to the success of his students. I have been able to not only benefit from the numerous drills that he has given me, but I have also benefited from the videos lesson that we do. He is always willing to go above and beyond for his students, and has been able to get me to a point where I feel confident with my swing every time I step onto the course.

    Review of Chip Inks
    “I have known Chip for over 15 years. He is a great instructor and an even better person. When I first worked with Chip I had not been playing golf regularly due to an injury and my handicap was about a 15. In one season, we brought my handicap down to a 10 and I have been as low as a 5 during our time together. Chip’s instruction is not limited to just the golf swing, he has help me with all aspects of my game. Additionally, to having extensive knowledge of the full swing and short game, he is skilled at using today’s technology to further help someone improve their game. I highly recommend Chip as a golf instructor” – Fred R.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I believe the key to shooting lower scores is to learn how to be more consistent with every club in the bag. By successfully coaching hundreds of students, I have valuable experience and knowledge in teaching the proper fundamentals and techniques that are necessary to help lower your scores. The key to obtain this goal begins with understanding consistently cause and effect. The first step in achieving this is to have a good foundation. By learning how to have the proper setup, position, aim and alignment. We will build from the ground up a more consistent fundamentally correct setup, which in return will begin the proper foundation in understanding what is needed to implement a change with your “cause and effect.”
