My son had taken lessons at a different place, and he had had a lot of fun learning golf and playing in tournaments. But he had plateaued in the low 50s and stopped progressing. That’s when we met Coach Blake. His approach is both serious, to get the results, and fun, to enjoy the game. What is different about his approach is that he involves both the young player and the parent. As a parent, it helps you to learn more about your young player, learn drills to use at home, and most importantly, become a better caddy for your kid. In addition to teaching the golf technique and strategy, he also emphasizes the mental side of the game and physical fitness, which most golf coaches consider an afterthought. He employs a team approach involving himself, you, a PT coach, etc. to create a well-rounded athlete out of your young golfer.
The results followed quickly. Within a few weeks, my son’s driving distance improved by 20+ yards. Within a few months, his scores improved to low to mid 40s. Most importantly, his mental attitude and approach to getting results have improved drastically. This does not just make him a better golfer but also gives him important tools to succeed in life. After all, junior competitive golf is not just about “learning to hit a small white ball”, it is also helpful in figuring out how to fight through adversity and becoming successful. Coach Blake is great at teaching your kid golf and being a better person.
