Teaching Philosophy and Credentials
Barry’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 voted the 2017 New England Section Teacher of the Year. Since opening in 2000, The Ultimate Golf School has had tremendous success with its instruction programs at The Cedar Knoll Country Club in Hinesburg, Vermont. Before the Ultimate Golf School, Barry learned the golf business at private, resort, and daily fee facilities from Florida to Vermont.
Everyone learns in various ways and wants to play golf for different reasons. Barry likes to teach and coach each player so that they have fun learning and playing the game. Each player is taught using successful methods such as imagery and visualization techniques, as well as video analysis and K-Trainer 3D biofeedback training. Your golf body is also 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. In fact, Barry is known as an instructor who will work with what you bring to the lesson tee. He does not redo your entire swing. Instead, Barry 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.
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. Barry will work to fix and refine, not rebuild. If you are a beginner, you can be assured that your swing will be based on fundamentals that your body can accommodate. When you first work with Barry, you will be asked 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. Remember, swing fundamentals are the foundation of a repeatable golf swing. When you learn the fundamentals of the golf swing and how to apply them to your personal golf body, you will then begin to make solid contact every time.
