The Most Effective Golf Instruction Available

Have you tried everything to improve your game?

You hit it great on the range but can’t take it to the golf course?

Hitting it poorly and losing confidence?

Are you ready to improve?

Are you committed to improving?

If so, then PureStrike Golf Academy has a prescription for what ails your game. My golf instruction approach involves building long-term relationships with my students. By doing so we are able to get to know each other and I can become more knowledgeable about you, your game, and your habits. Together, we are then able to develop a rapport where our communication is relevant to you, your needs, and your game. It's all about you.

Why is this important to you?

Because it works. Just like learning to play a piano, we can get past just playing chopsticks (just hit the ball) and develop your skill where you can play your favorite song (score on the golf course).

4 Keys to Continued Improvement & Lower Golf Scores

Junior Golfers

Guided Discovery

The value we bring as golf teachers includes the wisdom to guide our students and help them figure things out on their own. Also known as guided discovery, this form of retention teaching is almost as good as if the students had worked out strategies for themselves.

Long-Term Development

Golf and all athletic development have several different parts that must work together to develop the complete golfer or athlete. Skill training is cumulative, which means that short-term goals must not compromise long-term development. Think long-term.  

Progressive Skill Training

Progressive skill training is the development of golf skills gradually or in stages, proceeding step by step. For example, if you cannot control the 3 elements of the golf club (club shaft, club head, and club face) in a 3-foot motion, a chip shot, you cannot expect to do so with a driver that moves approximately 22 feet.

Monitor Your Progress

Develop a plan, execute the plan, continually evaluate the plan, and adjust the plan to ensure that improved performance is achieved. No matter if you are local or out of our area, we can monitor your progress.

Golf Coaching Services

Long-Term Coaching Plans to Lower Scores

Our long-term coaching plans are not the typical scenario of having a golf lesson, a handshake and see you next lesson. All golfers who sign up for these long-term coaching plans will have continued support. You may contact me 24/7 with any questions you may have, advice you may need or for me to take a look at a video of your swing.

Long-term coaching plans are not only a good fit for local golfers but also for our out of town guests in the form of golf schools and more. The plans may also be used for online golf lessons for those who cannot make it to Destin, Florida. No matter if you are a complete beginner or a pro, teaching plans are the key to lasting improvement.

Tip of the Month

Driver Education

The following video is an excerpt from a lesson where my student and I are addressing his driver.  This is not my typical “Tip of the Month” posting, as you can tell.  But, I thought it would be fun posting due to the several small nuggets in the video which could possibly assist you with your game.  I hope you enjoy.     

This particular student traveled in from out of state to work on his game and his background was quite interesting.  My student, as a young man, caddied some for the late Jim Ferrier towards the end of his career.  Jim was an Australian professional golfer from Manly, New South Wales who won the PGA Championship in 1947.  You can imagine how much I enjoyed hearing a couple of stories.
