Ladies Golf Classes
I had the fortune to be introduced to someone I consider a master golf teacher in 2011. Jim led me in a 5 week beginner and 5 week intermediate course. What I thoroughly enjoyed about learning from Jim is the following:
His attitudeJim is down to earth and brings a positive attitude to his teaching. I didn’t feel stupid asking any question and I felt 110% comfortable in where my ability was right no. He does not make his student feel any sense of embarrassment.
His patienceI am sure he has heard it all before! Jim always smiled, answered the question. And he would talk in a steady slow manner which must be so hard when he is so knowledgeable.
His love of the game
How did I see this? By showing his professionalism and teaching us the etiquette of this prestigious game!
His listening skillse.g. He stopped, looked us in the eye, listened to our comments and then showed us and studied us and then set us off to practice, practice!
His communicationHe did this ever verbally or by showing us what he was explaining. Sometimes it takes more than one way to communicate!
His creativityHe took the time to take videos of our swings and then we got to see Jim’s and Ernie Els swing – Quite a difference!
Jim told us at the beginning to focus on our good shots, forget the bad ones and to above all else ENJOY the game. Thanks to Jim I am excited about golf and am pleased to be part of this wonderful and frustrating game! I whole heartedly recommend him as a golf teacher.- Liz
