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. Golf is, by universal consent, 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. 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.

I use to be a 9.9 handicap, I went to Mr Lortan because I started to struggle breaking 90. I watched a lot of golf lessons on YouTube and it just made me worse. Mr Lortan is an awesome instructor, I’m more of an advanced golfer and he was incredible at explaining to me the reasons he was making some changes in my setup and takeaway, he spends time talking to you about what he’s trying to do; it’s a back and forth conversation. I’ll continue to work with him because he’s great!

Patient, knowledgeable and passionate about golf. I had a fantastic time learning golf fundamentals and seeing myself progress after every lesson. He‘ll work with you at whatever level you’re at and break down every step for you. There’s even a bonus when you sign up for one of Michael’s classes. He gives you access to learning resources on his website. This helps you later when you can’t recall something he taught and you’re trying to have the correct posture, swing or technique. Thanks Michael for teaching me lifetime-long lessons that I can apply to golf anywhere I go.

I was very pleased with Michael's professional and affable approach to golf instruction. His knowledge on golf and the golf swing is extensive. He listens to his pupils, and tailors his teaching accordingly. Michael provides excellent cost-value lessons, which will noticeably improve your golf skills.

Golf Lessons

Highly recommend Michael to fix what ails ya! I was struggling with chipping, and hitting my mid irons straight. Within the first lesson, Michael had me back on track and happy again with my golf game. The other 2 lessons reinforced the changes that we made. Michael explains in very simple details the mechanics of the swing and ball position to help you visualize how it all connects. Extremely happy with the outcome and my investment with Michael. I feel like I have my own personal golf coach and friend!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    HOLIDAY Specials are listed on my website now with multiple lesson options, ranging from individual to group, as well as packages and clinics. Personalized gift certificates are available. Students may book directly on the website or call with any questions ahead of booking. The scheduling tool on the website enables you to match my availability with times that are convenient for you. (This method is quick and easy, and eliminates back-and-forth texting or emailing) I have two offers for new students - 1. Private Golf Instruction at $85 for the first lesson. Range balls are included. (Request Coupon Code). 2. An Introductory Offer for new students with three 60-minute lessons for $210. This offer, (which also includes a phone consultation) works out at $70.00 per lesson.

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

    I typically have a phone consultation to discuss goals and understanding of issues. It's an opportunity to share my teaching philosophy and methodologies, and for you to gauge if we'll be the right fit. I can also evaluate your golf swing from a video prior to lessons.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    USGTF Level 3 Certification I am an avid student of the game, constantly reading books by the best teachers, as well as any other approach that will enhance my ability to address and improve weaknesses in a golfers game. I have studied extensively from McLean through to Leadbetter, Pelz to Stockton, Rotella and Alred. There are so many facets to golf from putting through to driving, but also course management and the mental approach, that if you are not continually evolving as a teacher, you start to lose effectiveness. Master Teacher Certification in progress, to be completed early 2021
