Introduction: I am a very patient coach and I always keep it simple for my students. I try to give you the least amount of information and thoughts as possible, but that information I give you will make the biggest difference in improving your game. Too many thoughts about a motion will interfere with the effectiveness of your swing. I will always follow up with notes after each lesson via an app called CoachNow. This message may include video, images, or just text. This has been proven to be more effective in retaining information after you leave the lesson tee. I also incorporate the latest coaching techniques in golf, technology including a FlightScope Launch Monitor, BodiTrak Pressure Mat, and other training aids when appropriate. I really enjoy working with students who love the game as much as I do and seeing the improvement in my students. When someone shoots their best round ever or just has a breakthrough moment during a lesson it is so rewarding! Let me share my passion with you and help you to enjoy this great game even more!

I had my first lesson with Mike yesterday and was quite impressed. He was affable, making the evaluation and initial recommendations comfortable, easy to understand and helpful. I went to the range today to 'practice' and although it is always uncomfortable to implement changes I could already see some improvement in my most glaring swing problems. I am looking forward to my next lesson!!

Great intro session with Mike. He accurately diagnosed my swing issues and guided me through a few fixes and swing thoughts to correct. I also have a great practice plan in place. Looking forward to the next session!

As a beginner, I had no idea what to expect with my first lesson. Mike was super friendly and encouraging right from the beginning. I think what I was most impressed with is how Mike is able to make a quick assessment on your ability and then immediately structure the lesson accordingly. In other words, he adapted to meet me at my starting point. By the end of my first lesson, I was comfortable with my set up, my swing, using 3 different clubs, and I was already trouble shooting with his guidance. This lesson far exceeded my expectation because of how he adapted to me. He clearly is an expert, and I am confident that he will be the perfect coach for me. I would recommend Mike to beginners but also to seasoned golfers who want to optimize their potential.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Every student's ability and goals are different. My process when working with a new student is to begin with an interview of the client. I will ask about the current state of your game, what your goals are for improving your game, your past experience with golf, and your expectations for our lessons. I try to get to know my students on a personal level prior to the instruction even begins. It is necessary to establish a certain level of trust between the student and the teacher. Our first lesson will usually begin on the driving range, but it may begin on the golf course if possible. I like to conduct an overall evaluation of a student's game rather than proceeding with the typical faults and fixes type of golf lesson. I will come up with a game plan tailored specifically to the needs of the student after determining the student's priorities for improvement.
