Teacher and Coach 
My goal as a teacher is to help my students achieve a good, consistent shot.  The student must be committed to improve their game and take the necessary steps to get there. 

It is not an easy process, but with time and commitment anyone can learn.  To me being a good coach means, “…taking it to the course with confidence.”  And you can too!

Thank you Mr. Sheftic, I wanted to let you know that your lessons have already began to pay huge dividends in my game. My ball striking is so much better. I am really having to get used to hitting the ball so far with my irons. My first round, post lessons, was at Crossgates last weekend. I shot a 78, but felt that I left some shots on the table because of my short game. I took off work today and went over to Fox Chase in Denver. For the first time in my life I shot PAR. I couldn't believe it. I just feel so confident in my game right now. I know what you're thinking: This is a nice way of me saying I'm not taking anymore lessons. I assure you that is not the case. I know that I still have room to improve. I would like to work on my driver and short game with you more. I am not satisfied where either of them are. There is always better. I will contact you in the next couple weeks to set up another lesson. Thanks again. For everything.  Jeremy Carteer

Ted Thank you for today’s lesson.  It was one of the best I have ever had.  I am even more motivated to practice and improve than I was before.  Very good stuff.  I left you and spent 1 hour at Hayfields hitting short chips to close pins from the nastiest lies I could create.  Very satisfying to be able to finally have a plan and some confidence on how to hit that shot. Please forward to me your round Analysis Form for me to track statistics for every round I play.  This analytical tool will be very helpful in isolating specific areas I need to focus upon to improve. I have played golf for over 50 years and know it is very difficult and full of constant ups and downs.  I have never been a natural talent at anything.  Rarely has anyone out-worked me.  I will keep grinding on this until I either get it right or improve significantly. Thanks for your help and direction.   Bill

Joe Parrini Runner Up AJGA Tournament

 Posted 2 weeks ago
Ted, Joe played in his first AJGA Junior All-Star tournament this weekend.  He shot 73-69 and was tied for the lead after two rounds. Unfortunately, he lost a sudden-death playoff. He finished 2 of 51 and also received the award for today's low score of 69. All in all, a great tournament for Joe!

Ted, Thanks for your help. Richard has put together 5 straight rounds in the 70’s in IJGT tournaments, with a low of 72 this past Sunday. He shot 79 on Saturday with 39 putts! We will be in touch shortly to schedule a lesson with William as well as discuss a plan for Richard on if he takes a year off (which I think he will do), what will our training plan and tournament plans be on a week to week basis. Thanks,  Rich
