NOT ALL GOLF COACHES ARE THE SAME. DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST BEFORE CHOOSING ONE!
Imagine heading to the doctors office only to discover that your practitioner was actually a salesman with no formal training, professional affiliations, or specialized education in medicine. They simply felt one day as though they could diagnose and perform a few procedures well enough to practice medicine so they set up shop.
Sadly that scenario plays out in golf instruction every day. In an unregulated industry such as golf coaching there are many individuals who set up shop and market themselves as teachers or coaches with no formal training, no prior teaching experience, and no education regarding human movement patterns, anatomy, motor learning, or any of the fundamental training that a well trained professional receives. These individuals may be good players and feel as though they have the knowledge needed to teach and they can charge the same if not more than a well trained, professionally educated, experienced professional.
Many of these individuals will brand themselves as "experts" and "elite players" but they simply lack the years of professional training and knowledge necessary to quickly and adequately develop your game or your junior's game.
Please don't be fooled by any of them. Ask your prospective coach who they learned under, what credentials or certifications they have, what continuing education they complete, and if they're a member of a professional teaching organization such as the PGA of America. Doing some homework while choosing a golf can save you time, effort, and money in the long run. Whether you decide to train with us or not PLEASE ask your prospective coach some of the above questions.
If you're ready for guaranteed improvement from a well trained top ranked coach and a professionally developed road map to get you to your goals then you're in the right place. Here at Gary Cardoza Golf you'll not only understand why your golf ball is doing what it's doing but you'll have a comprehensive practice plan to help you work on and develop the skills and technique needed to play the game and lower lower your scores.
Golf is not played on a practice range and our training and player development plans are designed to help you practice in such a way that you'll be able to transfer it to the course. As a matter of fact a large portion of our training plans involve on course coaching instead of the traditional driving range lesson where it's ball after ball to the same target off the same lie. THAT'S NOT GOLF AND IF THAT'S BEEN YOUR PRIMARY LESSON EXPERIENCE TO DATE AND YOU'RE READY FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
