About Chad's Teaching:

Chad's instructional philosophy is not only based on sound golf practices but also on reliable learning principles. Chad believes it is important for every golfer to

  • EXPERIENCE instructional techniques through direct play with more action from the student and less talk from the instructor

  • COMPARE what the student "thinks" is happening to what is really happening through the use of multiple camera angle videos because the camera tells the truth

  • PRACTICE new and modified golf techniques while receiving immediate feedback to see real-time changes

Chad is certified to use the V1 Professional Video System and the V1 Visual Putting System. He is certified by the Titleist Performance Institute as a TPI Certified Golf Fitness Instructor. Chad's commitment to golf instruction can benefit all golfers, regardless of the level of experience.
