"My objective is to bring out the best in each golfer by increasing their awareness about the game of golf and themselves. I help golfers learn to trust their swing, be free, and to "just let go". Instead of just transferring knowledge to the golfer, I actually help them understand what they are experiencing so they can learn each time they play or practice. I use state-of-the-art technology to evaluate, equip and help them acquire knowledge needed to excel and have fun in the game of golf. "
