Jeff is recognized for his perceptive eye and his ability to diagnose swing problems quickly and efficiently. His philosophy is based on setting up in balance and utilizing the student’s strengths.

“In the golf swing, a tiny change can make a huge difference.” — Harvey Penick”


“It’s easier said than done, but play one shot at a time untl you run out of hole. Make each round the most fun you’ve ever had. 

There is a lot of perceived pressure in golf. Learn to under react, rather than over react. 

Develop a simple pre-shot  routine. Focus on the task at hand and the results will take care of themselves 

Accept every shot no matter where it goes. 

Be yourself and play your own game.” – Jeff Otto, PGA
