Welcome to my site....... Hello, my name is David Miller, I'm a level 3 golf teaching professional with the Canadian Golf Teachers Federation www.cgtf.com Having instructed for over a decade in the Northumberland county area,just east of Toronto,I have taught at Port Hope Golf Club,Ashbrook Golf Club and currently hold a contract at www.keystonelinks.com
My philosophy is one of highly personalized sessions for both beginners and intermediate students.Focusing on the fundamentals of the golf swing,I make detailed individual assessments and then provide personally tailored instruction,quickly resulting in a better game for every client.
The process includes putting,chipping,pitching all the way up to the full swing,as well as getting to know your yardages for each club.Having taken a club fitting course with Golfworks of Canada,I keep up to date with technology and can make well-informed suggestions and recommendations if the student is thinking of purchasing new clubs.
Playing and working with renowned golf psychologist Dr.Doug Smith,has given me much insight into the mental side of golf,which I now pass onto my students.For in-depth,professional advice in this area,I highly recommend contacting Dr.Smith directly through his website www.thepromind.com
I also routinely recommend stretching through yoga to my students as yet another way toward a better game. Having taken yoga geared toward the golf swing,with a certified instructor,I noticed my own game started to improve as I came to realize,and now emphasize,the importance to the golf swing of being more flexible.After all,the body is the most important equipment we have!
This awareness has allowed me to further individualize each students lesson.If a "textbook" swing cannot be achieved due to physical limitations such as limited range and motion,sessions will be catered to the individual in accordance with his or her present abilities,resulting in specific recommendations on how to gradually improve both your game and overall flexibility.
Instruction will include a video of your swing,so developing golfers will get a better idea of swing faults and can more effectively apply my suggested "cures with drills".
Whether you are a novice looking for your first lesson,or you have already taken your game to the next level,do not hesitate to contact me...
