    While I have not been able to implement all of Ben's suggestions, he is clearly very knowledgeable about the fundamentals of the golf swing. I have shown some improvement in my ball striking since our first lesson. I am looking forward to future lessons.

    Brad, keep up the work and remember that I want you hyper focused on one drill at a time. Then switch it up with another drill, then another (etc.). Don't try to combine all the drills at once, you'll hurt yourself! Keep me in the loop with your progress.

About this pro

My name is Ben Hogan and golf has been part of my life since I have been able to walk. I have been playing competitive golf since the age of nine and have played in professional tournaments for the last seven years. I played NCAA Division I golf for George Mason University and was a team captain. As a highly accomplished amateur, I was fortunate enough to have worked personally with Kirk Lucas, an instructor to PGA and LPGA tour players, for over ten years. As a student of the game myself, I teach what I have learned from other great instructors and players such as Ben Hogan, Hank Haney, Butch Harmon, Jim Flick, Jonathan Byrd, Steve Marino, Quin and Jim Sullivan, and other fellow PGA members). Through their knowledge and wisdom I have been able to develop my own teaching methodologies. Through ten years of teaching, I have extensive knowledge in techniques and drills to help achieve you achieve your goals. I receive great satisfaction in helping students improve and enjoy the great game of golf. Honestly, getting a thank you or success story from a student a week after a lesson. If a student hasn't improved after a lesson, I want to them to tell me just the same.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My fee is based of time spent with students. With nearly 30 years of knowledge, my job is to save you an enormous amount of time and give you immediate answers. Think of my service as your own personal "Google" of golf instruction - and you only get the top results.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I don't rely on the typical cookie cutter lesson strategy. If I used the same scripted dialogue with every student then I'd be wasting their money and my time.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I'm a sponge for new data and research. I enjoy spending the time to study new facets of the game and incorporating them into my Instruction. I love playing the role of the nerdy guy in class who has the answers to the tests who everyone cheats off of. That's all golf instruction really is, an instructor that is essentially just saving you the time from having to spend endless hours studying. I believe the best golf instructors throughout history take the more challenging road and do their own homework. I don't see the point in sitting in a class to stay on top of some trendy method. Let alone PAY someone thousands of dollars for the right to slap another worthless "Level I" or "Level IV" next to my name.
    Coverage Area for Golf Lessons with Ben Hogan, PGA is about 30+ miles of Springfield, VA.
