- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I have been teaching as a PGA Professional since 4-1-1970, almost 50 years. My published rate is $140 per hour $70 per half-hour. I teach all ages and skill levels but like my youngest students to be age 8 and up. My thumbtack rate is discounted to $90 per hour and that includes $20 for the Del Mar Golf Center for range balls per hour of instruction. I have discounted rates for series of six 1/2 hour or hour series of lessons after your initial lesson. I use JCVideo computer software system with a high speed camera that processes 170 FPS. Frames per second. This is live on the range and during your experience you will use your smart phone to take pictures of your swing off my computer. As well as a video where I do voice over. This gives you absolute clarity on where to bring your mindful focus.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
They initially warm-up for a few minutes and then I video them from two positions. One is face-on view and the other is target line view. Then we review their swings and give comparisons with Touring Professionals. Both men and women. When we start back posture is always first, followed by grip, stance width, ball position and alignment from ground up. During this process I start talking about my core-breathing approach - key to pulling stress out of your tight and up shoulders. I then work on getting your feet and then knees and then hips to sequence your swing movement correctly. I then give drills to enhance weaknesses and from the ground up.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a swing coach for 50 + years and a core energy-breath performance trainer since late 2007. Ten plus years. As human beings we are what's called aerobic creatures. Meaning we rely on oxygen. My business partner Scott Bartley has 45+ years of qi-gong. This is a martial art - and is the breathing process. He trained me on the in's and out's of core-breathing. We started a program and you can access it on my website - address listed above. I also have attended PGA seminars on teaching golf my whole adult life. They teach you to swing but not how to engage your body through core developed breathing. This activates proper muscle function and supports your lower back.
