There is not just one way to master your golf swing to get a result.  Everybody is different, and even though things are done differently, it does not mean that it is wrong, there are many ways of going from A to B.

Your swing can never be better than what your physical ability allows.

At the end of the day, we like to be square at impact to the ball when we strike it and the approach will differ between individuals.

Most of the time, mistakes arise from bad habits made before the swing such as the beginning grip, posture, alignment or ball position and bad shots very often are not made in the swing, but in the errors made before the shot.

My aim is to work on and improve what you have and what you can do, but not try to make you do something unrealistic which you will never be able to do.

Some people may have back problems, hip problems, shoulder problems, knee problems etc. and as an experienced professional I will find a swing which can work for that individual even though it may not be by the book 100%, but it works, and the main thing is to improve your swing and improve your enjoyment playing this fantastic game!
