Keeping the fun in the game!

We all know how important it is to introduce the next generation of golfers to the game. The Links at Brunello Golf Academy has created Junior Golf Programs aimed at making the game more fun and accessible for all. Our programs are geared for juniors ages 5 and up. All of our junior instruction, including clinics and camps, are designed with keeping the fun in the game, while learning the golf fundamentals, life skills, rules and etiquette. For those that are looking to take their game to a more competitive level, our Learn to Compete Program offers that specific pathway and to grow further within the competitive realm of junior golf.

It hasn’t been very long from being a beginner to a golf coach. In the process, I put a lot of effort into practice, and finally, I got this achievement within a short period. I am excited to have the opportunity to share my experience with my clients.

My main goal in teaching is to create a comfortable and enjoyable environment for my clients to learn golf skills. And based on the golf swing techniques and training, giving my clients better decisions on the golf course with the confident swing.

Since I got the PGA card in a short time, I understand the importance of a customized training plan. Therefore, the training will be targeted based on different needs. I know a lot of drills and techniques which can make the practice simple, efficient, and fun.

I hope that through my patience and enthusiasm, I can cultivate students’ interest in golf and discover the charm of golf.

I am fluent in Mandarin and English, if you are looking for instruction in Mandarin, please reach out!

两年前,我开始接触高尔夫这项运动,我用了一年半的的时间从一个小白成为一名高尔夫教练。在这一过程中,我付出了很多,同时我也收获了很多。我很期待有机会把我的经历与我的学员们分享。

 

我希望有机会可以和我的学员共同享受高尔夫带给我们的快乐。

高尔夫是一项与心理状态紧密相关的运动,我希望能教给学员的不光是高尔夫挥杆技术本身,而是通过训练和教学让学员在球场上能做出更自信的判断。

由于我在短时间内拿到了拿到了PGA card,我明白一个专属定制的课程计划的重要性。我可以使用很多小技巧和方法让练习变得简单高效的同时又具有趣味性,而通过我们一起讨论的计划,会让训练具有针对性,也更容易得到更好的效果,从而享受这项运动。

同时我可以用英语和中文进行教学,可以清晰的解释动作细节,分享感受,让教学过程变得更为流畅。

我希望可以通过我的耐心和热情,可以培养学员对于高尔夫的兴趣和感受高尔夫这项运动带来的魅力。

How long have you been playing: Growing up I played tons of other sports and golf was just one of those sports. Once I turned 16 though I fell in love with the game all over again and really wanted to  focus on golf and get better. So as I was finishing up high school I figured if I’m going to be doing something the rest of my life I may as well enjoy doing it!

Goals when teaching: When I’m teaching, I really want to make it fun for everyone, it doesn’t matter if it’s their first time ever swinging a golf club or if they’ve been playing their whole life. I want everyone to enjoy golf because it’s such a great game. I like to adjust my teaching style depending on the person. Some people really enjoy taking a deep dive into everything to do with the golf swing and others just like some simple tips on how to improve. That is why I love teaching so much you always have to adapt but it’s so rewarding when you see your clients improve

DIRECTOR OF INSTRUCTION PGA

The Links at Brunello Coaching Staff help golfers reach their goals, emphasize the individual’s unique set of skills and use each players own strengths and weaknesses to plan appropriate instruction, practice and play. Instructors analyze golfer’s swings and pay close attention to ball flight – teaching to the individual.

We offer a wide variety of programs to satisfy any skill level, regardless of experience. When working with our younger players, the concept of ‘Coaching’ rather than strictly ‘Instructing’ is emphasized. Such a framework will address golf and life skills as they pass through stages of development, encouraging fun and skill development for many years to come.
