With Tim Krumnow, PGA Certified Instructor Memorial Park Golf Course in Houston, Texas
Throughout my career I've worked diligently and passionately to become the best golf instructor I can be. My passion led me to work with some successful and amazing people along the way. I'm Certified by the PGA in Instruction, Retail, Golf Operations, Tournament Operations, General Management, Ownership & Leasing while working on completing becoming a Master PGA Professional. I also take pride in being a Master Fitter, Master Clubmaker and Master Club Repair Technician by the Professional Clubmakers Society and a Certified Fitter for every shaft and club manufacturer on the market today. In addition, I'm also a Stack & Tilt and Plane Truth Certified Instructor.
I truly believe in order to become the best instructor I can be I must know as much about the equipment as I do the golf swing to truly optimize what a player can do to reach their full potential.
Continued education is important to me. That's why I keep up with the latest technology and teaching methods. I am proud to be one of the few K-Vest, Trackman and Swing Catalyst instructors in Houston. I look for instruction improvement everywhere I can and will continue learning every day as I strive to be the best instructor I can be.
I have set 4 course records: Country Place 62, Del Lago 63, Canyon Lakes 64 and Terradyne 62.
Here's some tips to learn how to golf like a pro!
How should I hit the ball?
There are many factors to consider when answering this question. This is why I suggest getting an initial swing analysis to determine what you are doing correctly (so you do not change them) and what areas you can improve on. Once I identify the areas of improvement we can make a custom game plan for you to reach your goals and identify the best way for YOU to hit the ball.
Which putter should I use?
With the Fit2Aim putter fitting system I can identify the exact characteristics of a putter someone needs in order to aim the putter correctly so they can start the ball on the intended line with the correct speed. These characteristics include head shape, hosel shape and offset, alignment lines on the putter head, shaft length, swing weight, grip type and size. Each of these will influence your ability to aim.
What do I do with my fingers?
The correct grip for most people involve holding the putter grip in the lifeline and fingertips. This will allow you to swing the putter on the correct plane and enhance your feel so you can control the distance you roll the ball.
Where should I look?
When putting we test your vision to verify where and how you see the hole. Once we determine your best angle for your eyes to see the line and the hole we can fit the putter to you and your vision.
How should I stand?
This is determined during the visual test. Once I determine how you see the hole I can the make a determination of what posture and stance is best suited to you.
How do I figure out the slope?
Judging the roll of a putt involves many factors. I can help you develop a pre-putt routing that will help you determine the best line for you to roll the putt on. Some factors include grass grain direction, high point of the green, drains around the green, bodies of water around the green, wind speed and direction, moisture on the green, grass type and speed.
How can I judge distance better?
Once you determine the slope (from above answer) you need to practice distance control drills. I have several I can recommend.
How do I improve my alignment?
With the Fit2Aim putter fitting system I can fit you into a putter that you can aim and align to the hole naturally so it is repeatable and correct. Essentially you can eliminate the need to work on alignment once you have a fitted putter. Learn to use your natural instincts.
What am I doing wrong?
There are many factors to consider when answering this question. This is why I suggest getting an initial swing analysis to determine what you are doing correctly (so you do not change them) and what areas you can improve. Once I identify the areas of improvement I can make a custom game plan for you to reach your goals and identify the best way for YOU to hit the ball.
How can I improve my putting?
Get a fitted putter so you can naturally aim the putter and start it on the correct line and then practice distance control and green reading.
