Golf Philosophy

My goal as an Instructor is to listen first to what the student wants, needs and doesn’t want. Then my job is to help them obtain these goals. There are three things I am looking at to start .

And as you’ll soon see, fly-fishing and your golf game go hand in hand… The two sports share more than their ancestry. Both tend to appeal to those who like being outdoors and like challenging themselves.  Both can arouse a powerful, even obsessive, fascination among the faithful, as well as a never-ending accumulation of gear. Fly fishing like golf is commands complete focus and skill to perform at high level. The connection between golf and fly-fishing first struck me years More >
