Philosophy: My Philosophy reflects the study I’ve made of the golf swing.  It seeks to marry the maximum efficiency of a golf swing and the physical well-being and longevity of the golfer.  Having an interest in how to cultivate a repeating motion, I’ve found that there is an interdisciplinary progression from pure potentiality in the beginning to mastery at the end.  As a result, I now believe the more specific the golfer’s intention with their golf ball, the more potential there is for improvement.  My job is to show my students, from the youngest to the most experienced, what is possible within this documented and measured progression. My philosophy is the Open Stance set-up, and it is has been employed by the greatest ball-strikers of all time.

[Founded to expand the discussion on playing golf, teaching the golf swing, and learning how to swing a golf club and play expertly]
