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!

Rip it and Chip it

12 Feb 2016 00:32:34 Z

Golfers with great long games tend to be weaker around the greens, and those with terrific short games often struggle with ball-striking. Why? Because a full swing and a chip or pitch are fundamentally opposite motions, yet many of us approach them the same way. The fix begins with understanding "kinematic sequence."

Great Email from Bill Fries

 Posted 4 months ago
Ted, Some feedback and a reminder for me: After last week’s lesson, I felt great. I entered our Member-Member 4 Ball Tournament at Hayfield’s. I quickly lost all recollection of our last lesson. I really struggled with every shot. I overanalyzed every shot. I became more and more anxious and did worse. Then I became frustrated and more agitated. Then I remembered Tip/Drill #1: 1.

Elbows In to Thighs- Load Hard to Right Side-Swing Past Left Side With Left Side Stationery I immediately began to hot every shot exactly how and where I wanted to. We went on to win our Flight and enter the Playoffs. Though we were eliminated on the 2nd playoff hole, we played well in front of a huge crowd. You gave me the tools to do this through your tips, drills, insight, hard work ...
