Coaching Philosophy

In About, posted by Virginia on - Comments Off on Coaching Philosophy

No matter how much you know as a coach, the information is only effective if you can get the message across. Being able to tailor my coaching style to suit the individual athletes will create an effective coach athlete relationship. Engaging the athlete is my responsibility. Investing time in communicating and understanding the needs of the athletes will see them achieve their best results.

I am committed to setting a higher standard as a Golf Professional by:

  • Training essential golf skills not by model or method.
  • Measuring and challenging the short game.
  • Train mental toughness.
  • Tailor practice for improvement.
  • Clear and effective communicator.
