George, a PGA professional, has been teaching and coaching golfers for almost 20 years. Prior to moving to Gillette Ridge, George was at the Hartford Golf Club as the main instructor. His simple approach to the sport accommodates an individual's physical ability and skill level. George's students include state amateur champions and collegiate players, as well as beginners. He is also an Aimpoint Certified Instructor, SeeMore Putting Institute Instructor, K-Vest Level Two Certified Instructor and TPI certified.
Everyone has different reasons to play golf and George's role as an instructor is to give each student what they want. For the competitive player, he will develop not only the physical skills of playing the game but the mental skills as well. For the recreational player, he will help them find the easiest ways to get more enjoyment from the game. George is a Skill-Based Teacher that does not fit all golfers into a model. Rather, George’s students are unique but skillful. Once the true goal has been discovered, a plan
is devised. This includes defining when the student wants the goal to be reached, what has to happen in order to succeed and how that success can be verified. Because most golfers want to lower their scores, George emphasizes the short game a great deal. He will make sure that the full swing is skillful, then spend most of the time teaching how to be great from inside 100 yards.
