Getting better at golf shouldn't be that difficult. We all make the game more difficult trying out one swing thought or another, hoping to find the holy grail. Sometimes our playing partners give us the suggestions, other times we are the fools thinking the answers are in magazines or on Youtube. This really is not an efficient way to improve at golf....
I've tried it all. I taught myself and my younger brother how to play the game as a junior. We both then went on to earn NCAA scholarships at Division 1 Schools.
Then through continuous tinkering and poorly advised technique change I developed a case of the driver yips that challenged my love for the game. Eventually I found my way back to a high level of play, but it took me years of frustration.
I can help you find the path to better golf quickly. There is a better way.
My approach is grounded in principles of Motor Learning and Skill Acquisition. I consider a student's goals, physical anatomy, technique, environment, and motivation in order to develop a complete picture of who that athlete is, and from there I can develop a plan for improvement.
working with me, you will learn what you need to do to make YOUR game work, and how to develop your skill with an appropriate practice plan. I believe that my job is to help you really OWN your own game so that you are no longer searching for "the answer" that doesn't exist.
I don't offer "the secret" to better golf, because it doesn't exist. What I offer is good, honest, long-term coaching that will help you play better golf.

Jake has been an excellent golf professional to work with. His interest is in really making a difference in your game, so he wants to work with you several times a month on a particular part of your game. When learning a new skill, he takes you through a series of progressions until you have it. He communicates how to perform an activity very well but if you can’t get it , he will adapt with another idea . He uses video feedback to show how you are progressing and as a takeaway reminder of what to work on during your practice sessions. And he expects you to practice in between lessons!!! I really enjoy working with Jake. Not only is he a great teacher but also lots of fun to work with!!!
