Teaching Philosophy: My approach to teaching golf is to make the game fun, especially with children. I use game-based teaching methods to reinforce the “fun” element of golf. Games trigger an energized learning environment and motivation to participate. In addition, they provide structure, kid friendly competition, immediate feedback and confidence-building early on in the learning process.
