2021 Golf Schools are Here!

2021 GOLF SCHOOLS hosted at TPC Toronto – Osprey Valley   2020 was booming for golf and for golf lessons. I have never had so many beginner players attend the golf schools!  The feedback from the participants was incredible with over 100 players sending messages about personal best scores within a week of the school and over 9 club champions used this school to prepare for their wins.  This feedback is something I have never had in 20 years of teaching and I attribute it all to the format of these schools   There are 2 options for schools: […]

Indoor Golf Instruction: 2020-2021

Winter Indoor Golf Coaching Toronto: 2020 got a really bad bounce, right into the hazard, but we’re playing on carefully not to make a big number.  Good analogy?  The courses were full all summer, just like the golf schools at TPC Toronto, with over 280 people taking advantage of Canada’s most unique full swing and short game programming.  Can you believe this is the only one like this in our whole country?  The results were off the charts and the feedback was outstanding. But now it’s time to transition inside… With online golf instruction taking off as it has, […]

Roll It Better In November

PUTTING COACHING If you’re reading this post then you’ve seen the ad for putting better in November, and the Unlimited Coaching probably caught your eye.  What is better putting worth to you but an even better question is, do you actually know you’re statistically “good” or not? What this program will help you do is self measure and self correct.  We’ll go through the ways that the ball can start off line, the ways that the ball doesn’t have the right speed, and the ways to practice this winter at home.  Combining state of the art technology in the […]

Winter Golf Coaching Program

  UPDATE: LIMITED SPACE REMAINS FOR WEEKEND TIMES ONLY I’ve had success coaching golfers using indoor studios for over 20 years, guided by the latest technology to help get results.  As the saying goes, “we are only as good as our best miss” this off-season individual coaching program is built around your needs, your goals and your time.  The history of The Program shows golfers improving their handicap by 30%, over the winter, without playing on the course.  This means that all facets of the game are evaluated and challenged so that when the opportunity to play returns in […]

The 3 Questions

If you’ve ever played competitive sports, you go through a stage at one point of wondering “Is this for me?”  “What do I have to do here?”  “Why am I even here…” Regardless of what sport you’re playing it works the same and this will be about golf.  I recommend writing out your answers to these 3 questions and maybe even get them on the wall for people to see.  This is about YOU and if you can’t get it out and you just want to say “I dunno, I wanna hit bombs and stack money” then you better […]

putting mechanics part 1

  As a Coach I’m fortunate to watch a lot of golf and a variety of different methods of getting the ball to roll on the green.  Today I’m intrigued by putter length as the 3 junior boys I’m watching have 3 drastically different lengths.  I’d say 30” 32” and 34.5”. The longest one sits a little toe up and the putter swings nicely The mid range one fits well for the 5’4” player who stands tall and let’s the spider hit the ball with a thump   The short putter is used by the tallest kid who also […]

Golf School – Practice for Performance

With the weather being a challenge this Spring, it has been important to focus on what needs to be done rather than what can be done.  It’s tough practicing short putts and little chips when its 8* and blowing sideways and then attempting to hit drivers in 4 layers of clothing but those are the things we need to work on now for those with qualifying events or just to be ready for the sunny season – if it ever arrives.  By placing a focus on the purpose of practice and executing a number of shots with a given […]
