“Champions keep playing until they get it right.”
Billie Jean King

With a good process you will learn more from your mistakes than success. Do you or your team have a process designed for your goals?


“Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out.”
John Wooden

How many ways are learning to learn and practice?

Is your team of coaches full and full of experts?


“A coach should never be afraid to ask questions of anyone he could learn from.”
Bobby Knight

Does your coach work with or calibrate with other expert coaches and players?


“It’s what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.”
John Wooden

How much education and certification do you think your coach should get every year?

Give me your thoughts I’ll give you mine.


“Most people get excited about games, but I’ve got to be excited about practice, because that’s my classroom.”
Pat Summitt

This year I am going to focus on teaching more coaches and players how to practice to accomplish my goals that are listed below. To talk more about the why we should practice than the how and the what. The when is the easy part.

Can you honestly say you know how to practice in golf? After the last three years being on all the major golf tours of the world, running a six location golf academy and teaching my students the answer is “no”!

I teach 5 different level of practice to help create “engrams”, confidence, skill, trust and proof. I teach those levels four different ways to allow for each personality to have a way to practice what works for them. Yet only a few student truly grasp such a simple thing.

Oscar Coetzee, who I believe is the smartest man in golf , , , , , ,
has helped me so much over the past five years to get down to my final few goals as a coach.

My goals for 2019 for the players I coach:

Dream goals for my students
1. Have a student win on the PGA tour/ LPGA
2. Have a student win a major
3. Have a student win a USGA national amateur
4 Have a student win the NCAA national championship
5 Have a #1 player in the world

Dream goals for my Academy
1. Have each coach who works for my Academy increase their student base by 50 students.
2. Have the students that takes lesson from those coaches accomplish their goals
3. Launch group programs that give people a better introduction to the game
4. Get 600 people to start to play golf through our men’s women’s and junior programs.

Dream goals for Flightscope University
1. Get 100 coaches certified in FSCPC L2
2. Get 400 coaches certified in FSCPC L1
3. Educate 10,000 coaches and fitters online
4. Inform 100,000 golfers coaches how to get better

Dreams goals for me
1. Do my job
2. Make a difference
3. Be an asset to the game of golf
4. Take more than one week off
