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!

US Ladies Team win Bronze

 Posted 2 weeks ago
Day 5 from Cape Girardeau Today was the final round of the USGA State Team Championship. Team pa started the day tied for 9th place and finished in fabulous form. Aurora Kan and Brynn Walker started the round out with a birdie each on the first hole. Ellen nearly had birdie but tapped in for par. Team Pa would log two more birdies on the front nine to finish the front 9 with a combined Q score of 1 under par. The team proceeded through the difficult back nine logging 3 more birdies until reaching the par 5, 18th hole. Brynn Walker knocked a 7 iron onto the 18th green in 2 shots and made the putt for eagle!!  This allowed Team Pa to finish the day with a combined Q score of 1 under par. This score was strong enough to propel the Pa girls from T9th to 3rd place alone winning the bronze medal for our state. Congratulations to a wonderful team of gracious, lovely young women.   I couldn't be more impressed and proud. It has been a pleasure being captain of this team.  Signing off, Capt'n Kennedy

Hi Ted---thanks for your great instruction!  Played the best golf from a consistency basis this year.  Usually only play 9 holes (to spare time so I can play regularly)---shot even par yesterday and have done that multiple times this year.  Shot under par a couple times too.  And never exceeded +6.  You might like this---a very rare event--a couple years ago I had my first (and only hole-in-one) while playing with my three boys-- on Father's Day no less--imagine that!  :) The take-away drill (with the rod attached to the shaft) and the lag drill have been wonderful, as have the impact drills.  Please continue with the mental-game updates---good stuff.  Read all Rotella's books and they've also been very helpfull Tx again!  Hope all is well, Mike PS--I know you think I've been a difficult student (you think I don't listen because I ask so many questions), but I revisit the DVDs and have soaked in everything you've taught!  And I'm loving the game.  All my boys play (and they get better by the day---my oldest, a D1 baseball player (who had a very good season last year for a team that won 40 games), can shoot ...

 Julianne Lee of York, Pa., and Charlotte Simpson of Towson, Md., finished tied with tournament scores of 156. The playoff started on hole No. 16 at Hershey Country Club, where Lee and Simpson tied with bogeys. On the second playoff hole, Lee was able to get up and down for par to secure the victory, the first of her IJGT career. Lee started the final round only one stroke back of Simpson after an opening round of 78. Lee put some pressure on Simpson early making two birdies in her front nine. At the turn Lee and Simpson were tied. Simpson grabbed control of the lead with a birdie on hole No. 14, but Lee was resilient and stayed calm making a par on her last hole to send it to the playoff.The greens at Hershey Country Club were rolling very fast and troubled many of the competitors including Lee.“My putting was not very good this week, but my iron play and driver made up for it,” said Lee.
