A year ago he couldn’t break 80 in tournaments. His confidence shot. His swing in shambles. I am so so proud and happy for all the hard work @_kevinn.l has put in. Shooting a final round -1 (71 ) on a tough St. Andrews Valley track. Well done Kev. #betterneverstops #myguy #Golfstagram , #Golfers , #GolfPro , #LoveGolf , #GolfCoach , #GolfParents , #GolfLessons , #ILoveGolf , #GolfTips , #Girlsgolf , #GolfInstruction , #GolfLesson , #GolfTip , #GolfVideos , #Juniorcoaching , #FootJoy , #Titleist , #Golf ⛳️, #JuniorGolf , #coachesofinstagram #bestpractices #Uskidsgolf , #JuniorGolfCoach ,

Lead Arm Work - @_kevinn.l was suffering from some ball striking inconsistency. At a closer look he was actually narrowing his arc on the downswing (the shaft was getting closer to him ). This was causing his lead arm to bend and then try to lengthen at impact. This caused his ball striking to decline. Enjoy this video on how we solved it and got him throwing 🎯 again. #Golfstagram , #Golfers , #GolfPro , #LoveGolf , #GolfCoach , #GolfParents , #GolfLessons , #ILoveGolf , #GolfTips , #Girlsgolf , #GolfInstruction , #GolfLesson , #GolfTip , #GolfVideos , #Juniorcoaching , #FootJoy , #Titleist , #Golf ⛳️, #JuniorGolf , #coachesofinstagram #bestpractices #Uskidsgolf , #JuniorGolfCoach , #betterneverstops

What a great question posed by one of my campers today watching Devon from @creditvalleygolf maintenance replace damaged turf on the 3 rd tee today! Have a listen and see why any chance to show MORE of what makes a golf course tic is so very cool during Junior Camp Week! #Golfstagram , #Golfers , #GolfPro , #LoveGolf , #GolfCoach , #GolfParents , #GolfLessons , #ILoveGolf , #GolfTips , #Girlsgolf , #GolfInstruction , #GolfLesson , #GolfTip , #GolfVideos , #Juniorcoaching , #FootJoy , #Titleist , #Golf ⛳️, #JuniorGolf , #coachesofinstagram #bestpractices #Uskidsgolf , #JuniorGolfCoach , #betterneverstops

QUESTIONS FOR THE COACH! My friend @jordanearll asked: “what does the trail leg do in the backswing? Does it straighten? Why does it? In this video my junior Sai shows why the lengthening of the trail leg is essential for powerful shots and a great swing. Enjoy! • • • • • • Do you have a QUESTION FOR THE COACH?

How Far is TOO Far? Kathy came to me and felt she had lost her swing and couldn't make contact and lost huge amounts of distance. WHY? In her effort to create more distance she began to turn her shoulders further than 90 - 100 degrees and this caused a myriad of issues. 1. Loss of posture 2. Poor wrist set 3. Pressure and weight shift moving all over 4. Swing sequence in total disarray. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ SWING FIX: We got her to understand how to hinge the club correctly and where she felt that her swing was only half of what it was, (as you can see on the right it was a good full turn ) she immediately saw improvements and consistency return. So when you need a little more control and not actually LOSE distance, do what Kathy did...LESS is MORE! ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #Golf , #BetterNeverStops ,⁠ #Golfstagram , #Golfers , #GolfPro , #LoveGolf , #GolfCoach , #GolfParents , #GolfLessons , #ILoveGolf , #GolfTips , #Girlsgolf , #GolfInstruction , #GolfLesson , #GolfTip , #GolfVideos , #Juniorcoaching , #FootJoy , #Titleist , #Golf ⛳️, #JuniorGolf , #coachesofinstagram #bestpractices #Uskidsgolf , #JuniorGolfCoach , ⁠

FEEL vs REAL.... SO my good buddy @silentjw and I recently played together and I said to him..."Bro you're putting setup needs to get better, as you're too upright, your eyes are way inside the ball, arms too close to your body and the toe of the putter is off the ground!" He looks at me and says "But I'm comfortable." I say "well let's try something and if you don't make more putts you can go back to comfortable ok?" So I changed him from the picture on the right to the picture on the left....he said, "OMG I feel like Michelle Wei bent over in half!!!" Then he sent me this text the VERY next day....⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Putting is the most fun! Love it man. Wow. Made me think tho that we’ve never hammered down on my setup until yesterday. I setup differently every time. Ball position, hands. Everything. Thanks bro you're the best! ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #create #putting #rolling #setup #feelvsreal #believe #changesisgood , #makeeverything , #Golfstagram , #Golfers , #GolfPro , #LoveGolf , #GolfCoach , #GolfParents , #GolfLessons , #ILoveGolf , #GolfTips , #Girlsgolf , #GolfInstruction , #GolfLesson , #GolfTip , #GolfVideos , #Juniorcoaching , #Golf ⛳️ #betterneverstops ⁠ ⁠

Build it and they will PLAY!!!! I cannot say it enough when it comes to how to get kids ENGAGED. You cannot be TOO creative. You cannot use your imagination ENOUGH. Your #1 goal is to give them your VERY best effort EVERY time and they will ❤️ this game for life!

Ball Position...Adult vs Junior 🤔 Understanding the placement of the ball is a MAJOR important point for anyone when hitting the ball. Too far back or forward with the wrong club can result in direction, contact and swing issues. Remember that it matters for Juniors as well but their ball position will not move nearly as much as yours. 1. The ball takes up more space in their stance than you. 2. Their stance is considerably smaller than yours. 3. Their clubs are smaller than yours (generally ). #Golfstagram , #Golfers , #GolfPro , #LoveGolf , #GolfCoach , #GolfParents , #GolfLessons , #ILoveGolf , #GolfTips , #Girlsgolf , #GolfInstruction , #GolfLesson , #GolfTip , #GolfVideos , #Juniorcoaching , #FootJoy , #Titleist , #Golf ⛳️, #JuniorGolf , #coachesofinstagram #bestpractices #Uskidsgolf , #JuniorGolfCoach , #betterneverstops #penny

So coach Doug was showing Charlie today what her swing was doing and I did it on my knees and hit a shot. Now Charlie being Charlie quickly piped up and asked, “can I try on my knees” I said go for it. She is ONE determined young woman!!! 🤣🤣🤣 #chick #bombs #knees #gotit #determined #betterneverstops #jrgolf #juniorgolf #girlsgolfrocks #girlsgolf #nothard

When the oldest member of your club @creditvalleygolf 92 yr old Bruce Holeness asks you for a lesson cuz he wasn’t getting it airborne and needed to know why? We reduced his lateral movement so he didn’t move off the ball as much and got him to feel his left shoulder under his chin so he got a bit steeper. Literally took 15 minutes and sent him on his way! #legendary #thisguy #betterneverstops #shootshisage #sometimeslower

When she’s wearing an Avengers hat and you draw on her liking for Super Hero characters ya gotta dance and celebrate a 4 yr old’s amazing successes.

How AWESOME are the kids I coach? Let me tell you! These four boys Jeremiah, Sai, Luke & Sid we’re playing ahead of @watch_penny_golf who was enjoying her round w her dad. When they caught up to the boys they immediately asked Penny (She’s 4 yrs old ) to play w them! These guys are 12,14,11 & 9 respectively and to do this tonight just proves to me again why @creditvalleygolf is a special club w special kids and that I am so blessed to have them call me COACH! • • • • • • • #betterneverstops #thesekids #juniors #character #leaders #kind #friendly #awesome #respectful #juniorgolf #juniorgolfers #uskidsgolf #creditvalley #academy #coaching #enabling #cool #fun

A little “Club Champ” prep work w @tybalding yesterday tightening up the swing and allowing for him to feel confident with a predictable pattern.

One of my favourite drills to engage a better turn for recreational golfers is to mimic other sports that they play. Here is my guy Dan using the split hand hockey slapshot drill Which as you can see instantly he gives him a better rotation, higher hands and a more sequenced golf shot.

The real thing in person showcasing @seanohara27 who has cleaned up his takeaway, limiting his lateral move and pinpointing the direction of his pressure, resulting in THIS beauty of a move.

Jack was jumping and was suffering from sporadic contact which was frustrating him. I grabbed an alignment stick and helped him understand how he needed to feel some different pressures and feels by moving the stick in a downward fashion in transition. His response? “Um, ya I definitely wasn’t hitting the ball that good before...wow!” #Golfstagram , #Golfers , #GolfPro , #LoveGolf , #GolfCoach , #GolfParents , #GolfLessons , #ILoveGolf , #GolfTips , #Girlsgolf , #GolfInstruction , #GolfLesson , #GolfTip , #GolfVideos , #Juniorcoaching , #FootJoy , #Titleist , #Golf ⛳️, #JuniorGolf , #coachesofinstagram #bestpractices #Uskidsgolf , #JuniorGolfCoach , #betterneverstops #alignmentstick #pressure #crispy #flushrockets

I’m not really sure I can put into perspective everything I experienced this week being caddy for @n_piazza9 @usga boys junior amateur. First of all I want to say thank you Nolan for allowing me to watch you play amazing and inspiring Golf. I am so very proud of everything you’ve done and excited for everything you’re going to do. Second, this experience for me was an education for me as a coach to see the level of talent and what goes into being at the top of your game. Thirdly, I want to thank @usga for putting on just a World-Class event and @invernessclubgolfshop entire membership and staff for being equally as amazing. Lastly I want to thank God for blessing me w the fact #ilovemyjob and I know now more than ever #betterneverstops

Hole 14, The Inverness Club, 485 yards par 4. The challenge just doesn't stop in the middle of your back 9 as 14 is a straightaway par four that rewards a good drive. Stray even a bit to the right or left and you will be faced with a pitch out or long fairway bunker shot of nearly 220 yards. WOW!

Hole #18 - The Inverness Club - 388 yard par 4. Precision is the key off the tee where a tee shot of 250 yards will leave you a short iron to a green protected with the "Valley of Death" on the right and multiple bunkers surrounding the green.
