Mechanics of Instinct 

  • First and foremost, I will make sure they understand that God made them perfect, just the way he planned; so comparing themselves to anyone else is a complete waste of time.


  • We will use the games of golf and tennis as tools for learning a much more important skill...the art of concentration. I define concentration as the ability to keep your mind in the present tense as long as it takes to get the job done. 


  • Competition will be presented as the truest form of cooperation. Your duty as a competitor is to produce your best effort always to provide the best competition for your opponent.  By always producing your best effort, you are growing your own game and cooperating with the growth of your opponents'.  


  • I will stress rugged individualism in my effort make your child "peer pressure proof." "Know thyself" is the first step towards this goal.


  • Never, never ever quit.


  • We will focus on the true FUNdamentals of golf and tennis.  Genius lies in simplicity and we will reduce variables in all endeavors.  Your child's instinctive balance and rhythm will be the foundation as we figure out how to make the golf clubs and tennis rackets "just another bone in the body".  The end goal is always an instinctive, low maintenance game that holds up under pressure.   Your child will discover this personal game with a deep understanding of grip, stance, posture, balance, and rhythm.  We will never copy any perceived "perfect swing".  All motion discovered will be instinctively safe which promotes accuracy and consistency which then leads to everyday trust in thyself.
