Golf Lessons in Rochester, NY 2

April 19th, 2010

In my continued effort to build my business and my brand, I have signed up to attend the Level 1 seminar to become a TPI Certified Golf Fitness Instructor.  My goal is to be the person that can provide the most well rounded golf lessons in Rochester, NY.

I’ve talked about my desire to include a Trackman to my technology offerings.  This is still in the works and my very first priority at this point.  I’ve become an AimPoint Certified Instructor to help teach people how to read the green with the best information out there on the topic.  I’ve spent time trying to learn the physics behind the club and ball collision and the resulting ball direction.  I’ve started networking and talking with some of the most brilliant minds in golf instruction throughout the world.

I have learned so much in the last 2 years, it’s hard to believe I was able to help as many people as I did.  Luckily, without knowing the ‘why’, a bunch of what I was teaching was right on with cutting edge thoughts on golf improvement.  I certainly feel as I am able to help player’s get better faster than ever before.

More of my golf lessons are from students looking for a more wholistic approach to their learning.  With the TPI information, I’m hoping to be able to offer another reason why golfer’s from Rochester, NY will choose me for their next golf lesson.

As always, I will let everyone know how it goes.

Golf Lessons in Rochester, NY

April 2nd, 2009
I’ve been teaching in Rochester for almost 10 years now and it still amazes me how good some players are from this area. This is a short season. There’s no other way to look at it. Still, some very good golfers come from this area. Jeff Sluman being the only major champion but mulitiple players at SEC powerhouse golf schools, NCAA Player of the Year and some great junior players have come from this town.

I wish I could teach year round as I’m sure you wish you could play year round. I’ve made it a goal to try and be the best teacher in a 20 mile area. I want my students beating everyone else. I will always be searching for better ways to do things, say things, show things and teach things. I don’t think it is a bad thing to learn from mistakes. I have never had a hard time admitting mistakes. I’ve always felt it showed how much I cared to tell someone I did it wrong and here’s how we fix it.

Every year, I feel like I learn so much in the offseason that I wonder if I wouldn’t be as good a teacher if I taught all year. Would I have enough time to find out all the information coming down the pike? I don’t know and I don’t see me moving in the foreseeable future.

So, if you are looking for golf lessons in Rochester, you have come to the right place. I don’t believe there is one best way for everyone and I have just as much fun teaching a beginner as I do helping someone try to make golf a career.  You can find out more about me and how the schedule a lesson at my home website.

Hopefully, one of my students will reach a point in their life where they can play the game they love and raise a family from the money earned on the course.
