Adam Betz, PGA
Owner/Teaching Professional

Adam's Training Philosophy

I teach the game to golfers on every level from the beginning golfer to the skilled tour player. I believe success in the game of golf can always be linked back to the fundamentals. My biggest strength as an instructor is giving the student an understanding of "what" needs to change for improvement while connecting "how" the student will feel that change to accomplish his or her goals. Once a student can transfer that understanding to an individual feeling, the student is bound to improve. I enjoy teaching all aspects of the game from putting and short game to the full swing and the mental approach. From my experiences learning from top instructors and playing professionally at a high level, I can help students reach their all of their golfing goals.

JR Remspecher, PGA, MBA
Teaching Professional

JR's Training Philosophy

Everyone wants to play their best golf, no matter if you are an accomplished tournament player, a weekend warrior, or someone who is just beginning to experience the wonders and challenges of the game.  Instruction is an important aspect to develop ourselves as golfers to enjoy what I consider America’s true pastime (when was the last time you played baseball?). My job as a PGA Teaching professional is to help my students reach their goals.  Goals can be sometimes be simple and short-term while others like to aspire further into the future requiring a more detailed plan.  Regardless of which of these categories your golf goals fall into I can help you to improve and enjoy golf even more.  

Since becoming a member of the PGA in 2009, I have developed a teaching style that concentrates on students understanding the feel of proper impact with the golf ball.  The feel is memorable and concrete even though it only lasts a millisecond.  Some players may feel this once in a round of golf others may string together a streak of flush shots throughout their round, my job as an instructor is to get to an understanding of how to match our processes with our patterns.  Ownership and understanding of our swing are accomplished through instruction in two realms: 
1.    Pre-Swing 
a.    What we do before the shot, i.e.:

i.    Posture
ii.    Grip
iii.    Alignment

2.    In-swing
a.    What we feel in the swing to improve impact and the end result, i.e.:

i.    Balance and dynamic motion
ii.    Club Face Direction
iii.    Club Path Direction

Every student will review video analysis of their swing to assist in the learning process.  This video will also be accompanied with Lesson Notes that detail the skills we are working on in the Pre-Swing and In-swing processes.  The Lesson Notes are key to help the student truly engage in their own learning process when practicing and playing between lessons.

No matter the age or skill level I have found that all golfers are capable of working on at least 1 Pre-Swing skill and 1 In-Swing skill.  If we trust this process our results will improve! 
1.    Establish GOALS
2.    Engage in INSTRUCTION
3.    Define and Trust the PROCESS
4.    Total Acceptance of RESULTS

Any student committed to these easy steps will improve and enjoy the game MORE! 
I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!

Blake's Training Philosophy

I have instructed golfers of all ages with various ability levels since 2008. My clients include beginner golfers, top junior golfers, college level and NCAA athletes, accomplished amateurs and professional players alike. My teaching philosophy revolves around each individual golfer's body type and how we can improve that particular person's impact position. My biggest strength as an instructor is my ability to teach players the cause and effect aspects of their game. I want all of my players to know exactly why their ball goes where it does, and the process they can follow to alleviate their issues. Lessons can cover all aspects of the game including; putting, short game, full swing, mental game, and course management. Whether your goals are to just have fun with the game or to become a tournament player, I can tailor a lesson program to fit your needs.
