The golf instructors at the Institute are all trained on the same teaching platform. We believe that each person is built differently and should swing the golf club according to their body type, physical strength/flexibility, and mental makeup. They are all trained in teaching the same techniques from putting to short game to full swing. Personalities may differ but the research and tested techniques stay the same.
