         How Can This Website Help You?

Begin by asking yourself, what does golf mean to you?  Is it a casual round with some friends for exercise or fresh air with no bearing on the score?   Or is it working towards your highest level with the intention of walking inside the ropes in tournament play?

Everyone will answer the proposed question with a different answer and express a personal view on why and how golf should be played.  Some players are more serious, some are more scientific and some play for business and/or social reasons.  All responses are correct and share one common goal… everyone is striving to get better.

That is the key to this website… improvement!  This website will help you as a golfer get organized, map out a plan of attack and guide you along the way with long and short term goals.   Each student will receive a locker to track stats, measure progress, store video lessons, capture pictures and moments (most people are visual learners), and analyze equipment.  The locker system will offer each student a different perspective on his/her golf game but ultimately show growth in everyone’s game. 

In addition, this website will provide current golf news, information on events, equipment, golf schools and instructional support.  By utilizing all aspects of this site, your overall game will improve and I will be accessible for support!

About Me
Besides driving the ball and working with students to improve their golf game, I enjoy spending time with my family.  Nicole and I met seven years ago and have enjoyed the theatre, music events, outdoor activites and our car ride conversations.  Ty was born in 2009 and opened my eyes to parenting.  This young man is humorous, athletic, witty and is the "candyland champion" of the Sheftic house! I was blessed with a daughter, Taylor, in 2012 and she wins the cutest kid award with her three dimples.   Life has been busy and exhausting but extemely rewarding!!  

Kudos to all the grandparents for their help and support!!
