I am 28 and I work in the marketing and PR industry. I went to Prisco after recovering from some back spasms and tightness when I wanted to begin swinging golf clubs again. Beyond getting me back onto the course quicker than I anticipated, his regiment has helped my back grow stronger and when I have any issues he's always available via phone or text. Going above and beyond, he also helped me with my golf swing, which has made a difference for my game as a slowly get back into playing.

    Working with Daniel and SGF really helped me improve at golf. I was having a good amount of pain around the last few holes of a round. After a few weeks of sessions I was able to get rid of that pain completely.

    About

    Sharing my passion for golf through instruction has been a longtime professional and personal goal of mine. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginner, I provide personalized lessons to players who are interested in enhancing their golf game. I firmly believe that golf offers important life lessons, and as a PGA member, my goal is to promote the game and help others appreciate the values, traditions and history of this lifelong sport. I think the best way I can rise to that challenge is through teaching. With the use of PGA Tour proven technology, my specialization is video swing analysis that lets you view your swing frame-by-frame, breaking down your golf swing's every movement and nuance. We can even compare side by side your full swing with your chosen LPGA and PGA tour professionals, matching each position of your swing against the world's greatest golfers. Now, you have the ability to get my instruction, even without me being there! You can get a lesson from me from anywhere in the world. With the internet and mobile devices' rapid advancements, a simple video of your swing, shot from any video camera or your iPhone, can be sent to my email. Then, I will analyze the video and within 24 hours, you will get a 20-minute video of your swing and ways you can improve it. If you're interested in learning more about my services, teaching philosophy, or to book a lesson, do feel free to contact me. Alex Dunlop

    About

    I help golfers personalize their golf swings. I do this by explaining the "what, where, when, and why". Students can then execute golf shots confidently and predictably. After five lessons, my students know exactly the cause of a draw, slice, push, pull, and straight shot. "How" they execute each of these shots is negotiable and up to them. Every individual is unique anatomically and mentally. I do my best to draw out of my students their personal insights to striking the ball. I do not believe there is a "secret" nor a right or wrong way to striking the ball. Once you know the "what, where, when, and why", "how" to strike the ball the right way is in fact "your way". I believe copying someone else's swing may ruin your skills.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What makes a good golf instructor?

    A good golf instructor is someone who has the playing skill you’d like to achieve, is qualified to teach golf, and is someone you can get along with. Some experts recommend you only take golf lessons from coaches with active accreditation from reputable associations such as the PGA, LPGA, or similar organizations that focus on continuing education. You’ll be spending hours out on the green with the pro during lessons, so a good rapport, strong communication and the right personality fit are key. A proven track record is also important. Read reviews from their current and former students to make sure they have helped people achieve their golfing goals, and always ask about the instructor’s experience before signing on for lessons. Years of providing lessons can contribute to a deeper understanding of how to teach the sport. Just because your friend or partner is great at golf doesn’t mean they’ll give good golf lessons. Invest in a professional golf instructor who knows how to teach the sport from short game to full swing.

    How much are golf lessons?

    Golf lessons are a great way to break into the sport or take your golf game to a new level. The national average cost for golf lessons is $50-$60, but prices will vary based on what type of lessons you want. The most expensive golf lessons will be private instruction with top-tier coaches. These are golf instructors who have held high professional ranking and have a good reputation. Regardless of who is teaching, private instruction is always more costly than couples’ lessons or small group lessons (usually up to four people). Teachers often offer a lower price per lesson when you buy a package of several lessons at one time. Here are some examples of average golf lesson costs:

    • Individual lessons:
      • Standard pricing for 60-minute private lesson: $60.
      • 60-minute lesson with renowned golf coach: $100.
    • Couples’ lessons:
      • Standard pricing for 90-minute duo lesson: $100.
      • 60-minute lesson with renowned golf coach: $125.
    • Golf lesson package pricing:
      • Purchase six individual lessons at one time and save $10.
      • Purchase 10 individual lessons at one time and save $40.
      • Purchase six couples’ lessons at one time and save $40.
      • Purchase 10 couples’ lessons at one time and save $200.

    What age should you start golf lessons?

    Golf lessons for kids can start as early as age four or five. They’re too young for formal training, but you can keep them interested and engaged and give them a feel for the game. U.S. Kids Golf recommends starting formal training for junior golfers at six years old. It’s important for young golfers to swing clubs that are the right length and weight for their body; U.S. Kids Golf provides a fitting guide.

    Golf lessons for kids, especially young kids, should be about encouraging success rather than correcting mistakes, according to U.S. Kids Golf. If you want your child to love golf for life, you want their early experiences to be positive. Golf lessons for kids are less expensive than golf lessons for adults. A monthly rate (including four lessons) for group golf lessons for kids may average $100. Semi-private golf lessons for kids may range from $150 to $200 per month. Location and instructor reputation can also affect cost. Often, discounts are provided when multiple months are purchased at one time.
