“Brian is an exceptional golf instructor, one of the small percentage of instructors, I suspect, who are equally personable, technically skilled, and highly effective in steadily producing positive change in students.  His experience and teaching ability is particularly evident in his remarkable skill at movement analysis.  His lessons build well on previous ones, and his capacity for keen observation and identification of the next step in the developmental process has surprised me often. He has established a solid foundation of fundamentals with me, helped me to learn to self-correct, and has instilled in me a commitment to regular range practice and a genuine affection for the game. My ball contact has steadily improved, as has my general shot-making, and my comfort level on the golf course. I have recommend him to friends, and each of those referrals has reported similar experiences with him to my own.” – Bob M.

“I had 20 lessons with Brian last year and my handicap went from 42 to 26. I’m having so much more fun on the course and I no longer feel embarrassed about my lack of skill. Thank you for all your help.” – Katie B.

“Brian is a talented, focused, delightfully humorous, and very effective golf instructor, who quickly establishes lasting rapport by understanding his student’s goals and aspirations accurately and quickly.  He then becomes a valued partner in a continuing evolutionary process; one who takes as much pleasure and satisfaction from his students progress in golf as the students do themselves.”  - Mike G.


Is this you?

You should only have ONE thought during a 1.5 second golf swing. And that one thought has to be something that will help you hit a good shot. Improving the mental side of your game is as important as the physical side.


“Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.”

 - Arnold Palmer
