After a lesson with Jeremy Franks, I am now able to hit 10 to 15 yards farther. Jeremy has changed my swing and I am very thankful.

Head Golf Professional
Golf is the most complicated game I have ever played. As an instructor my goal is to make the game and swinging the golf club as simple as possible. I have been using a four-step system that starts with an athletic set up, transitions into a full turn behind the ball, drives the lower body into a target oriented impact position, finishing with a relaxed pose for the cameras. This process allows the student to focus on one step at a time. Once each step is understood, you will be playing golf with the four steps I see all tour players doing. 

My philosophy for students is to always look to improve their golf game. Once the four steps I care about in the golf swing become comfortable for the student to duplicate on his/her own, we will be able to advance in other areas. The short game, course management, physical fitness and mental toughness are the areas that need to be developed to make a player reach the highest level in golf. The goal is always the same, continued enjoyment of the game.

As an instructor it is my goal to help all of my students find enjoyment and success in the game of golf. I constantly see articles in magazines, instruction videos on social media sites and advertisements on television for the latest ideas, equipment and training devices that boast to take a golfer’s game to the next level. While most of these publications have excellent advice, this advice can prove helpful to some and detrimental to others. Through my experience teaching students of all ages and abilities, I have come to the realization of one steadfast philosophy; the fact that there is no single remedy that will help all golfers achieve success. Each golfer, as an individual, possesses  unique strengths, weaknesses, capabilities and limitations. This can be seen at all levels of golf from beginners to touring professionals. As an instructor, I strive to get to know each of my students on an individual basis so that I can work within their strengths to help them successfully find their own, perfect golf swing.
