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!

    Needed to share with you that today on the 15th hole at Rolling Green I hit a drive and had 74 yards to the flag then holed out the second shot for eagle. One hop and into the cup. Drive was hit 300 yards. And it was majestic. Nice job teacher!!

    Mark, Played the practice round at my friend's member guest yesterday and 3 nine hole matches today. I love how I hit the ball with your fixes; more truly flush shots in the past two days than I've hit in the last two years.  Thanks!! John

    Mark   Can't thank you enough for a great few days. I feel much more confident and clear about my swing and the triggers/keys to keep in mind. Played Jupiter Hills yesterday with a 2 and a 9. Tough course and the conditions were tough - think Oakmont with greens running at 13- very hard to keep the ball from rolling off. The 2 shot 83 and the 9 and I shot 89. I hit 12/14 fairways had a birdie on the 3 handicap hole putted well and got out of every bunker except a difficult downslope shot. The 9 is a good friend who is usually 20-30 yards by me off the tee. I was either even with him or less than 10 yards back. Overall I hit the ball solidly and played well. You are the man! Thanks ED

    Mark, Just a quick note to thank you for a great three days. I'm always amazed at all of the "little things" that aren't so little that are seen and corrected during the school. Please pass on my thanks to Ted and Rick for their help also. The combination of the teachers and the stations is hard to beat. Thanks-G
