Joe's keen desire to be one of the best teachers in America is not only very evident, but he takes active steps to make it happen. He is very bright and has studied under most every top instructor in golf. His position for several years as the head of the golf schools for Golf Digest put him in a unique position to observe and learn from the game’s finest teachers. When John and I met, he was well on his way to a thorough understanding of not just the golf swing but the entire game and how to play it. With regards to what I teach, Joe has been very quick to understand the principles that I feel are fundamental to both teaching and playing the game. He has a complete understanding of technique, but more importantly, understands that there is more than one way to swing a golf club and can help everyone who walks through his door. That is a very rare gift and unfortunately, not one that you often find. Beyond his technique and skills Joe is a born teacher in that he can communicate and he cares about people. I can teach people about golf but I cannot teach them to like other people. Teaching is a people business plus the correct information. Joe has both. He is the kind of warm, gentle and gracious man that people enjoy associating with. Joe
is also my friend and I am very proud of that.”
“I recently began playing again after a long absence from the game caused by an injury. Joe is helping me build a swing from the ground up that is enabling me to hit the ball as I always desired. My progress has been consistent and I recently carded my first eagle at Bay Hill. During a seven hole stretch of one under par golf. Not bad for a 15 handicapper! Joe has me more motivated than ever to reach my full potential and I am thrilled to be working with him.”
“You are without a doubt the best teacher of golf that I have met. With all the instructional books, golf channel instruction, videos, gadgets, etc, your ideas about the swing cuts away all of that chaff and allows me to hit the ball with power and accuracy. Whenever I find the time to practice and play I enjoy the game more than ever, and it helps my ego when my golfing buddies tell me how much my golf game has improved from tee to green. I can't thank you enough for all the joy you have given me. I'll try to get you a schedule of performances that I am conducting. I hope you can get to the ballet this spring.
Joe is a brilliant instructor. He believes in the unique teaching methods he's developed, but he also believes that no two people swing exactly the same way -- they have different bodies, different abilities, and never enough time to play. So he helps you make your own, as-simple-as-possible, repeatable swing. All the while, his love of the game and his love of teaching help make it fun. In my case, following Joe direction and ignoring all the stuff in magazines and all the "helpful" tips from others, I've gone from beginner to mid-80s in less than two years. Now we've re-set our goal to the mid-70s, and if Joe can hang in there, we'll make it.
Prepare yourself for success! Because of Joe experience and knowledge, he is professional, patient and positive. He is dedicated to an enjoyable learning experience. He knows what level of instruction you need and he works with you until you “get it”. Through analysis and technology, he reinforces the correct fundamentals. This approach leads to immediate and measurable improvement. The one - on - one relationship really pays off--through the specific drills, and teaching aids you feel the “correct balance”. Joe does not treat only symptoms—there is no quick- fix technology; you can depend on Joe for constructing your swing. You will successfully hit the ball because you know how to swing the club. “I have been playing golf for almost one year and because of Joe instruction and dedication, I am now playing on one of the most difficult courses in a private club. I still have more to learn but am enjoying my playing experience”.
