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!

Email from Jack Sheaffer

Ted, Great lesson! I feel much more confident over the ball & feel as thought I need to concentrate on fewer things since my stance forces me to make a good turn. I need to reschedule the follow-up lesson until after the 4th if for no other reason that I have a hearing that morning. Also, I want a couple of solid rounds in to get a better feeling of how I am striking the ball.  Also, the chipping instruction is most helpful. Jack Sheaffer
