I teach golf. This may sound like an obvious statement but for me it is something that I get to do and I really enjoy it. When I see some of the reviews that have been submitted lately, I find myself honored and humbled. Just yesterday, a student posted that they had learned more in one lesson with me than they had learned in 10 lessons with other golf professionals. I have a hard time understanding what was happening in those lessons.
When I teach, I enjoy helping my students escape from their everyday lives to learn golf. I am direct in my approach and I do not hold back my comments. If a student pays me money to learn golf, I want to teach them golf. I want to see them succeed and achieve their goals. I want them to get out and play.
Truly, I do not take myself that seriously. I am simply thankful that I have a place to teach. This pandemic has made it difficult to find a new home at a golf course but I have continued to coach my students to success even at the Golf Practice Center at Commons Park in Royal Palm.
I am receiving texts and pictures of scorecards frequently from adult students who have improved their scores consistently and are enjoying the game on a new level. More of my junior students are playing tournaments. While some finish first, others do not but they are coming back to their lessons with a renewed desire to keep pressing ahead to improve their skills. I have even witnessed an increased level of energy and joy in my homeschool students that fills me with so much hope for the future of golf.
All that to say, I am thankful for the opportunity to teach golf, to have awesome students and to do what I love to do.
