when teaching, brendon takes a close look at how the
body is influencing the golf swing. after understanding
how the student�s body impacts their golf swing, he then
focuses on the proper fundamentals of grip, stance and
posture. realizing that the golf swing is an athletic
motion, brendon utilizes other sport activities to help
the student develop the proper swing sequence to
ultimately achieve the correct and all important impact
position. by obtaining the proper impact position, this
will help produce the desired ball flight for which each
student is looking.
brendon is also a very accomplished teacher of the
short game. he stresses that over 65% of your shots will
occur inside of 100 yards and 43% of those are putts.
therefore, understanding proper short game fundamentals
will not only help you lower your scores, but they also
will help to improve ones full swing.
