Teaching Philosophy and Credentials

Teaching Philosophy and CredentialsBarry’s Teaching Philosophy and Credentials make him the local golf instructor of choice. He is the Certified PGA Golf Instructor/owner of The Ultimate Golf School, and is the 2017 New England Section Teacher of the Year. Since opening in 2000, The Ultimate Golf School’s successful teaching programs are now available for you in Charlotte, NC. Barry  continues his high level as a PGA Golf Instructor by continuously learning from industry experts.

Philosophy

Everyone learns in various ways and plays golf for different reasons. Barry likes to teach and coach each player so that they have fun learning and playing the game, therefore golf is a game for a lifetime. All golfers have various physical abilities, therefore, no “cookie-cutter” approach is used for your golf lesson. Each player is taught using successful imagery and visualization techniques, as well as video analysis and K-Player 3D biofeedback training. Your golf body is so vital to your success as a player, therefore we strive to show everyone how to attain a more “golf fit” body.

You don’t have to radically change your swing to play better. And because Barry is an instructor who will work with what you bring to the lesson tee, he does not redo your entire golf swing. He will improve on your current swing style as it pertains to your athletic ability or physical limitations. Instead of trying to master the “ideal” swing, Barry makes golf fun for you by teaching fundamentals that you can actually accomplish.

Tailor Made Instruction

Instruction should be tailored to an individual’s needs rather than forcing a golfer to learn a certain type of swing theory. A great teacher is able to fix any swing, conventional or unconventional and Barry will work to fix and refine, not rebuild. As a beginner golfer, your swing development will be based on fundamentals that your body can accommodate. And as an experienced golfer, you can be assured that your swing improvements will be long lasting. When you first work with Barry, he will ask you questions regarding your golfing goals, your physical limitations and concerns, and basic sports background information. This will allow your instruction to be tailor made for you.

Barry’s teaching philosophy and credentials have made the Ultimate Golf School very successful. Swing fundamentals are the foundation of a repeatable golf swing and when you learn the fundamentals and how to apply them to your personal golf body, you will then begin to make solid contact every time.
