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!

2nd Place for Richard Riva IJGT Jr Tournament

 Posted 1 days ago
Hey Ted I just finished in 2nd place in the IJGT at Hartefeld National with a 74-74 (par 72, 6700 yards).  I played well and hit the ball pretty well.  I just made a few mistakes here and there or else I would've finished in first.  I lost by one stroke. I think it would be good to let all the coaches know about this.  Thanks and see you on August 8th. -Richard

Jr Tournament at Ledge Rock

 Posted 3 days ago
Mohnton, PA – A cloudy morning turned out to be a sunny day for 48 players at LedgeRock Golf Club on Monday, July 27, 2015. With its rolling fairways and many elevation changes, the Rees Jones design played at 6,243/5,788/5,072 yards for the Philadelphia Junior Tour competitors. David Herbst (Mechanicsburg, PA) put up a strong round and carded a 75 (+3). An even par back nine guided Herbst to a smooth finish. Andrew Forjan (York, PA) was only a shot behind to take home second place in the division with a 76 (+4). Ethan Murphy (Mechanicsburg, PA), Davis Clarke (Mechanicsburg, PA) and Joe Del Franco (Broomall, PA) tied for third place with rounds of 79 (+7). Another close race took place in the Boys 13-15 division with Jacob Macinati (Lancaster, PA) emerging victorious by one stroke. Macinati’s one-under-par front nine propelled him to a round of 77 (+5). Just behind and tying for second place was Ryan Tall (Collegeville, PA) and Alex Seelig (Birdsboro, PA) with rounds of 78 (+6).

Email received from Richard Riva

Hey Ted this is Richard.  I just played the junior PGA championship qualifier (36 holes in one day) and posted 73-73.  It was kind of a boring two round performance though because I hit nearly every green and two putted.  I had 5 birdies and 1 eagle overall between the two rounds.  I finished at T6 out of 71 players.  I'd give it a B+.  If I dropped a few more putts I would have been the 60's but I also wasn't hitting my approach shots close enough to have consistent, solid looks at birdie.  My overall shot shape was a little too much of a draw.  Would be nice to come and dial it down a little.  Maybe Will and I could come up for a lesson around July 30-August 1.  I have back to back IJGT's soon, so I'll keep you posted.

Thanks Ted.  I must have hit 300 golf balls since our lesson on Saturday.  I’m getting a feel and really enjoying the benefits of a the new backswing!  I got to play 9 holes on Sunday, and struck the ball pretty well.  Shot a 41. I’m amazed with the additional distance (of about 1 club), and the accuracy from such a compressed swing. Looking forward to our next session on the 23rd!   Jason
