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!

Golf School emails sent to Ted

Ted and Mark, As I stated to Mark, this camp was phenomenal.  Aside from the great teaching and a thoughtful structure, the chance to meet you, Rick, Roy, (Mark again) and a number of Philadelphia players led to a wonderful three day experience.  Exhausted, blisters, a sore knee, and perhaps too many swing thoughts may be the immediate take home.  But the longer view will be applying many of the swing corrections, course management skills, and other tips to the game back home. Appreciate your many kind words of encouragement and look forward to doing this again in the future.  Please extend my special thanks to Roy.  We had two great days of playing together.  There could not be a nicer gentleman, one who is so gracious and kind.  I really enjoyed watching him play.  He can still smoke it.  Best regards Tom
