Coaching is different from typical instruction/teahing:

Instruction is communicated one way to the student.  Teaching is communicated  one way with testing to make sure the communicaion worked.
Coaching is two way communication with reinforcement from all angles of communication and all aspects of how new skills are used and renewal of old skills that need reinforcement!

Our philosophy is to give students an understanding of the golf game,as it is played using everything in their power to produce their best golf game every time, On the Course, Where It Matters! 

We encourage students to become their own golf coach, by helping them find the proper set up for their body style & restrictions, by finding the authentic swing within them, by leveraging their own strengths to produce a reliable consistent game that works repeatedly under pressure.  We address the root cause to each of their personal issues with lasting improvement, not a typical symptom with a "fix" that lasts a day. 

Golf is a game of Opposites.  We believe that the entire game must be addressed for lasting improvement.  The entire game includes Swing Mechanics, Game/Shot management and Mental/Self Control.  We need all three to work together to play well On the Course, Where It Matters!  

We instill in our students the understanding and ability to achieve their golf goals with a complete and simple approach that's:

  • Repeatable - with all the proper golf skill mechanics to play, 
  •  Intuitive - common sense approach that is in tune with natural body movement,
  • Confident -  mental control of each game shot, to get the best outcome possible, 
  •  Kinematic - natural body & mind for a fluid golf swing to the finish.

That's RICK golf that lasts, so everyone improves and looks good playing golf.


Our Approach:  Each student starts with a goal setting session to determine what's realistic and achievable, so successes can be achieved towards the long term, and receives a golf journal to write down their goals.  What gets written gets done!


Each student Plays with the coach for 9-holes, where we discover all their personal golf game tendencies in swings, shots and emotions, to develop their Personal Practice plan.

Students then attend as many or as few practice sessions for up to 23 hours a month, as much as they like, working with the coach to build strengths and eliminate weaknesses in their game.

This is a proven success model where structured practice leads to long term improvements and testimonials.  Almost everyone improves in this supportive learning environment. 


Typical golf career Development Stages. 

The Contact Stage:  Every golfer goes through learning golf and a career that starts with getting good ball contact - just trying to send the ball to any target. 

The Recovery Stage:  Once that is achieved, the next stage is usually one of recovery golf - we can get the ball out there, but it ends up where we don't want it, thus we have to recover a lot. 

The Target Stage: The initial satisfying stage is where we can get it out there and it DOES go relatively close to our target.  This stage gives us the confidence that we can play the game AND have fun at it when we do.

The Playing Stage:  This stage starts when we realize that there is more to  the game of golf than just making contact and getting around the course.  This is where shot trajectory and working the ball come into play, so we can lower our score by using Show, Money & Scoring shots.  
The Betting Stage:  When we have built good enough shots and a game, we instinctively start betting.  Golf and betting go hand in hand.   That's usually when the pressure of that One almighty Dollar that we bet for, weighs heavily on each shot.  Yes it's fun but it also adds lots of frustration to the game.  Now mental golf has a meaning in our game.  As we get good we want more...

The Competition Stage:  After we have developed a pretty good set of shots to use for most all conditions, we start to lower our scores and begin breaking through popular barriers, breaking 100, 90 or 80 and beyond.  And then we realize there's more...

The Thinking Stage:  As we progress our golf swing mechanics and our course & game management, we go beyond the common understanding of the regular friendly game or even one for a few weekend dollars with the boys. This stage requires us to think our way around the course using our "A" game or our "B" game when we need it.  But how do we do that?  Understanding that the mental game needs to be added to the swing mechanics and course & game management reveals the entire game to us.

The  Automatic Stage:  This stage requires us to have all our background noise in our heads settled so it doesn't interfere with the shot at hand.  This stage requires us to have the ability to focus and concentrate on only one task at a time when we need to.  This stage requires us to use every skill we have in proper steps to make good decisions, think them through to be committed, and execute them without interference in any aspect so we can execute the best shot for the conditions time and time, staying in the present.  This stage is where the Real Game is played and the Real Rewards are achieved, On the Course, Where It Matters!

Conclusion:   If you are beyond the contact stage, the playing lesson is for you...  If you are currently in the contact stage, join us for the "Get Golf Ready" introduction series, then the playing lesson is for you...The pros have a golf coach, why not you?
