Teaching Philosophy

“I believe golf is a sport people of any shape, size, gender, age, or physical ability can play. Lessons are designed to complement the student’s strengths, and concentrated on aspects the student would like to most improve on. Lessons are centered around the student’s own unique physical characteristics and capabilities, personality, and understanding of the concepts. In a relaxed and uncomplicated manner, the student will acquire the knowledge and tools necessary to improve their golf swing, their score, and most importantly, the enjoyment of the game.”          ~Laura
