Introduction: I teach golf instruction to beginners, intermediate and advanced golfers. As well as Touring Professionals men & women. Where a swing coach teaches you to swing I add an approach called CORE-BREATHING 4 GOLF. This teaches you how to physically energize your bodies core with an inhale breath and then direct this force-power into your gluts and next draw that energy down to your feet to create the highest level of ground force. This process absolutely reduces stress tension and tightness in your shoulders. That is key to building a repeatable swing. This is the "missing link" in learning how your body works. Very important...Every human breathes for life. How many know how to breathe for health. Then and only then can you apply that re-learning process to your golf swing and game. I enjoy the interaction with all my clients. They are here to learn golf. I enhance that experience to give them thorough knowledge on how to breathe healthier and applying that concept to golf. When you energize your core to gluts you support your lower back. You want your lower back to last a life time and I have the techniques and methods to achieve that goal. If a client spends enough sessions with me they will get better.

Bill is such a joy to work with! I am a beginner and in just a few lessons I have learned so much not only about golf but how important breath and body mechanics relate to it, an approach that really appeals to me also watching the video recordings back really help me implement what he is teaching.. if you want some quality feedback for your golf game I highly recommend Bill. Scheduling was easy, he is always on time and I leave every lesson with so much information.. I am looking forward to continuing lessons and improving my game.

Thanks for your review. Understanding how to pull the stress - tension - and tightness out of your shoulders with my core-breathing approach is key. My physical test are key to understanding your bodies issues to create appropriate muscle function from the ground up and not shoulders down which is the norm. All the best - see you soon...

Golf newbie’s welcomed here! If you’re looking for instruction that is easy to follow, educational, and will dramatically improve your golf game keep reading… Prior to my first golf lesson, I was a little nervous as I didn’t know what to expect. As a women who wanted to take up golf, I wanted the proper instructor and environment that would allow me to feel comfortable and not judged for being a beginner. Scheduling a lesson with Bill was very easy! I simply called and set a time that worked with my schedule, and he was very flexible with dates and times. Bill’s setup is very easy to spot at the driving range. Just look for the black tented setup with camera and signs that say “Bill Westerlund’s Golf Instruction”. Helpful Hint: The first time I drove to Mission Bay Golf Course, Google maps dropped me off at the back of the golf course by the tennis club. Be sure you are at the entrance by the Mission Bay RV Park and not the tennis club. Bill is very patient and educational. He focuses on teaching the power of core breathing techniques and using that breath as energy while playing. He gives you step by step instructions on position and angles of what your body should be doing while swinging. He also films you and will analyze the tape right there after you swing. This is so helpful, as I am a visual and hands on learner and this allowed us to see what I was doing right and wrong. Bill would compare the film to a pro like Tiger Woods or Michelle Wie, and then I could apply what he instructed me to make changes. His breathing technique really works! After my first golf lesson, all of my initial nervousness turned into a new found passion for golfing. His instructions are not only for the advanced golfer, but for a beginner like me. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn or improve their golf game. I’m grateful to have found Bill, and look forward to the many lessons to come. - Farrah

I took a weekly golf lesson from Bill Westerlund for about two months and greatly enjoyed the experience. Bill is very professional, an excellent teacher, and a wonderful communicator. He greatly helped my golf game, my confidence, and my breathing which helps me relax on the golf course and in other situations such as giving a presentation to the President of a Fortune 100 company. I highly recommend taking golf lessons from Bill - spend some time with him and you will agree this is a terrific experience.

I have been going to Bill for 4 years now and he has really helped me understand not only the fundamentals of the golf swing but the energy the body should create to achieve the most consistent results a player is looking for. Using the energy your body creates will help re-shape your golf swing from the ground up, and Bill has been instrumental in this way of teaching. Adam 6 handicap.

Quality Golf Instruction Bill combines a wealth of personal golfing experience with breathing techniques from martial arts and meditative disciplines, affording his students not just greater control and distance but also a deeper understanding of their body and clarity of mind. With Bill's help I have really been able to make improvements in my game. It's not easy, it's not fast, but now I hit a 220yd 4-iron and can suck back a lob wedge. Your mileage may vary, but I truly believe this is a good road to travel. - mae
