Mike is a true professional. I started with Mike a few months ago and will continue to work with him as I've seen results in my game almost overnight.Sep 19, 2017Verified
Mike was great in addressing the issues with my putting (the focus of our lesson). I liked his approach/philosophies as well as his delivery. Also, his follow up, detailing my homework with pictures taken during the lesson will allow me to execute his suggestions until I'm a great putter! (A girl can dream.)Sep 16, 2017
One of the best teachers I've had, can work on a short notice and is very flexible with his schedule. He really knows his stuff and has me hitting the ball fantastic. Huge improvements in a short amount of time!Jul 7, 2017
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Teaching is two-way communication between the student and the teacher. Not just the instructor telling the student what to do and expecting them to do it. The more feedback from the player the more progress can be made. Building a golf swing is like building a house or anything for that matter. You start with the foundation and build up. The golf game starts with the grip and stance and goes from there. I also like to simplify the swing. It's not rocket science as some might try to get you to believe.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a PGA Member for over 30 years and had the good fortune to work for Randy Smith in Dallas. Randy was rated by PGA Tour pro's as the second best instructor behind Butch Harmon. I took what I learned from Randy and developed my own style and rapport. I spent a great deal of time in workshops with Harvey Penick, Jim Flick, Paul Runyan, Phil Rodgers, and several others learning the golf swing and the best way to communicate.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have worked with hundreds of players. Everyone from a raw beginner to tour players and aspiring tour players. Men and women alike along with juniors.
