Welcome to “The Stable”@creightonfarms ! I think I died and went to golf heaven 🥰🏌️‍♀️!

This is the icing on the cake of an amazing year and best birthday/ Christmas present I could have asked for - the official opening of our gorgeous new learning and performance center! I have dreamed of this day for a longgg time- even before my tenure at Creighton. You cannot wipe the smile off my face😁😁😁😁 and yes it was worth the wait!

The Stable features:
2 large temp controlled indoor-outdoor hitting bays, trackman, video capture, 3D Motion analysis, fitting carts, club workshop and PuttView system (very soon)! Our outdoor space will be remodeled to include a larger fresh grass tee, an uneven lie zone, shortgame area, practice fairway bunker and more !
Thanks to our rockstar team for pulling this together in time for winter. Especially @robert_blumer and our GM Larry Spielberg, Tyler @trackmangolf and our Superintendent and crew. More work to do, but so much done these last few weeks🙏
Can’t wait to start coaching consistently in this space and add more cool things as we go!
@callawaygolf @titleist


❄️💨🥶 What’s your fav outerwear ( that’s comfortable for swinging 🏌️)? I’ve been wearing this piece a bunch lately and I love it @lululemon 🤍 Hoping it stays white 😅. I usually go baselayer, turtleneck , stretchy thin jacket and puffy vest if needed so I can still turn and swing my arms. I hate feeling restricted. Who’s playing this weekend?


Long shadows and short days 🧡💛🤎🌅 Sunset over hole 12 @creightonfarms


Give yourself a high five 🙌… I present to you - the High Clap 👏🏻 drill! Keep that engine moving 😃 @golfdigest


What side of the fairway would you hit ? Light green (right) or dark green (left) ?

⛳️I love when fairways aren’t mowed like this especially on doglegs.💚


Pivot! Your full swing foundational movement! 🏌️
This is the first in a series of vids on @golfdigest 💚 stay tuned for more !


Couldn’t resist a few swings before I left work yesterday… just a few easy half wedges. Connected, crisp, smooth, pivot, balance. Simple, satisfying. But seriously I need to make time to PLAY while the weather is still sooo good and the course is in perfect shape right now! Early Fall in VA ( all 2-3 weeks of it 😉) is why we live here, right? friends? Absolutely perfect. The sky has been clear and blue for dayssss now. Who else loves Fall?

I am so honored and excited to show you my first big feature article in this month’s @golfdigest 💚! I’ve contributed print articles before but not as a member of the GD Teaching Staff ☺️and not on this scale - 8 pages🙏! I hope you enjoy reading it and that it helps you strip away compensations and reset your swing for better for the long-run!
I’m thrilled with how this piece came together with this great team working their magic! Big thanks to @maddimacclurg ( congrats on your first feature 👏🏻 GREAT job!!) @peter.morrice @kaspriskeron @johnloomis @nicole.rae_ Lots more in the queue - IG vids, GD Schools video series ! Stay tuned!
Thanks to @creightonfarms for the amazing backdrop for this shoot and making me look good @foraygolfusa ( shirt) @ggblueluxesport ( skirt) @johnstonmurphy (shoes) @callawaygolf ( clubs)

It’s the 😎✌️! Definitely clocked some hours this week! What day does your weekend start? For me it’s usually night after 🏌️lessons 💚 ! What are your weekend plans? Btw- this outfit 💙💙💙💙 gorgeous color but wish you could feel this fabric !!! It’s like a quick dry crepe. Sooo nice !!! I feel like a mil bucks in this look 💰thank youuuu @ggblueluxesport ! @johnstonmurphy 👟and of course nicely accessorized by @trackmangolf and @tifosioptics 👏🏻💪


Student: My wedges are so inconsistent!…I have no distance control and I used to hit my SW 80 yards now I only hit it 60.
Me: Well, you have plenty of speed… more than you need… but no SMASH….
Student: I don’t understand.
Me: When your ball speed is less than your club head speed you’re not compressing the ball at all. We need at least 1.0 ration on these wedges. You’re at .81 ….Try a shorter backswing, back up the ball position a touch and limit wrist hinge.
Student: ( hits a flighted wedge, sees numbers) wow, I just too a half swing and the ball went further and back to my distance.
Me: yes, less speed , less effort , steeper angle of attach ( shaft lean) , less ballooning, more smash!
Student: ahhhhh ok.
Me: There is no prize for how far you hit a wedge… so don’t forget about your gap and pw. Easier to control your distances without muscling it … just switch clubs.
Student: Won’t jt roll out too much?
Me: Not if if you pinch jt correctly you’re gonna have plenty of spin/stopping power.


Want to unlock your ? Spend the day with me @creightonfarms ! I host one day golf schools where we explore my teaching concepts and drills … Fall dates listed on my website !
This was my most recent group of swingers … they did amazing and I had a great time with them!


*PSA*: If you’re hitting a long hybrid or fairway metal into more than 4 greens per round… you’re playing from the wrong tee box! Tag someone that needs to 🏌️‍♀️🏌️🏌🏿‍♂️
Don’t make this game any harder than it has to be- consider playing up and have fun being able to score lower with shorter clubs in your hands- and boost your confidence !


Thank you @golf_com for the recognition! 💙 I’m thrilled you’re enjoying “watching” me and all my antics on social ⛳️😀😉 @lkerrdineen @lifeoftimreilly 🙏🙏
I’m honored to be in the company of @mikeburygolf @stonegolfsense @johngrahamgolf @alisoncurdtgolf @paxtonoconnor @patcoynergolf @davidprogolfer @johnbierkan @mdicksonpga @jameshonggolf @ricksessinghaus @msheftic @jsr_golf @clundberg @devan_bonebrake @jasonbirnbaumgolf & several more!

With Driver, keep your head…..

✅behind the ball ( pic 1)
❌in front of the ball ( pic 2)
Until impact🏌️‍♀️
Try this dry drill in front of a mirror to see where your head is … also to practice that great unwinding sequence of lower body before upper while still building pressure on the lead leg. You should feel a big stretch down the lead side of your body!

How to set it up: Place the clubhead on ground at ball position. Take golf posture stretching arms out to touch top of grip. Shift and twist pelvis through leaving head slightly behind the ball position ( which is forward in the stance).

So how far would my driver fly at 5000 ft?…. What’s the slope adjustment ? +200 yards?? ⛰🏌️‍♀️😁💪 Swipe LEFT to see the tightest fairway of the day!😉🏞⛳️.

You know you’re a golfer when you travel clear across the country to go to a wonder of the world and thing about your 🏌️‍♀️⛰😎😂. Who else has done this ? ( or wanted to?🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏽).

Are you like me? I can’t get away from ! Actually —— It has been an awesome few days with my family at @grandcanyonnps and @zionnps lots of pics on my story/ highlights . More adventures in store then next few days!

How many steps in your pre-shot routine? Heres a checklist…

⛳️Aim and visualization behind ball
⛳️set clubface before body ( *see my latest reel to understand WHY!)
⛳️commit to your shot and swing thoughts
⛳️when you practice … next ball placed on ground behind previous divot😉

Also, Do you take a practice swing? When where and what is your focus. Are you actually transferring and committing to your practice swing feel in your real swing or losing focus? Staying present and intentional with your routine is important and underrated part of playing better golf.

I just had this convo with a student yesterday. If you click to my story you will see a screenshot of her whole routine laid out because she didn’t have one as a new golfer. Gotta start somewhere !
