Tim Hart - PGA Apprentice Instructor

So often we get bogged down with too much thinking while trying to make a golf swing, usually this means too much thinking about things that we don't need to concern ourselves with.  Tim tries to help his students focus on just the causes of why their swings break down and filter out everything else. Once they know the causes, it is much easier to develop a better image and a better golf swing.

Matt Clay - PGA General Manager

Matt's passion is to introduce the game of golf to young athletes in a fun and exciting manner. He loves the smile a young athlete has when they hit a great shot or make a tough putt.  Each player is different, each swing is different, and every player’s goals are different. Matt will create a personalized program that will address your player’s physical movements, technique, equipment, practice regiment and how they handle themselves on the golf course. Matt's goal is to help young athletes understand the cause and effect of the golf swing. As their knowledge increases we can evaluate their swing as a team.

Chris Lesson - PGA Operations Manager

Each student is an individual with a different body type and a different level of flexibility. They have different goals and different learning styles. This is what makes teaching so exciting. Being able to help someone improve their game is very rewarding to Chris. He wants to get the best out of his student without changing what they can do naturally. Chris will take what they have and improve on it. A key component to his philosophy is video swing analysis. It helps the student see instantly what you are trying to tell them. Chris also has a strong passion for equipment and club fitting.

I specialize in tournament preparation and in managing your game in addition to the mechanics of the golf swing.
