Introduction: Michael Lortan, USGTF Golf Teaching Professional, views teaching as a passion first and an occupation second. Committed to helping students improve whether they be a beginner, intermediate or a skilled golfer. Offering a full range of lesson options that will improve skills from tee to green. All lessons are held at Coyote Ridge Golf Club in Carrollton. LORTAN GOLF has been selected as a 2023 winner of the "Best of Carrollton Award" in the category of Golf instructor. Golf is, by universal agreement, a difficult game that can be made even more frustrating with COMPLEX INSTRUCTION and FIXES THAT ADDRESS THE SYMPTOMS AND NOT THE CAUSE. From personal experience, the best teachers I had starting out suggested the most fundamental changes, and were able to easily explain the key movements that make up a good golf swing. The average golfer is not seeking swing nirvana but rather greater consistency. They are looking to make their game more manageable and repeatable, so that they can more enjoy their time playing. The goal is to work with the student's own unique swing, and to apply the fundamentals of address and the swing in a simple manner that produces that increase in consistency and enjoyment. Identifying the root of the problem, and making small adjustments, can quickly result in noticeable improvement. For the new or rookie golfer, a simple core of fundamentals, and a logical progression through the movements required to play, establishes the platform on which to rapidly develop the basic skills and etiquette to progress onto the course, and into group play.

Michael was an excellent golf instructor. I had played for a few years but had never gotten a lesson before, he helped me change my swing from fast and erratic, to smooth and consistent in only a few sessions. He was patient, knowledgeable and easy to follow. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level.

Michael was a great instructor! I went through a 4 lesson beginner package with him, having never played golf before. I was invited on a golf trip, and took these lessons going into it. I didn’t have wild expectations of being great, I just wanted to hold my own with friends. I ended up exceeding my personal expectations and the group was surprised that it was my first time playing. Michael’s process of building the swing from small to large built good fundamentals that I was able to rely on when I was on the course playing! I’m very excited to continue to pick up the sport and will be returning for lessons to bring my game to the next level!

Michael did a great job evaluating me and knowing exactly what to do to help my golf swing. I truly believe we got the most out of our lessons and he took me from trying to figure out the golf swing to playing now!

I had the pleasure of finding Michael on Thumbtack while preparing for my first proAm golf tournament, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the moment I reached out, he was incredibly responsive and guided me through the process of learning about the game of golf. What truly stood out was his unique teaching approach using the analogy of the Game of Cricket, which resonated perfectly with me as I had a background in cricket. Michael's punctuality was impeccable, always arriving at the golf course before me and ready to start the lesson. His dedication and professionalism were evident throughout our time together. I wholeheartedly recommend Michael to anyone in search of a golf instructor. His expertise, teaching style, and commitment to his students make him an exceptional choice for golf lessons.
