Welcome to Tom Good Golf Coach
Since I retired from teaching full time, I have moved with my wife to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. I now teach part-time at Royal Isabela Golf Club in Isabela.
- Although I have a theory and technique that I believe is the best and easiest way to swing a golf club for the successful playing of the game, each player will feel this in a different way. It is important to take into consideration the makeup of each student from physical to mental. In the teaching process, it is very easy for an instructor to tell someone how they should be swinging the club, but what if they can’t do it that way physically. It is also easy to tell someone they are hitting behind the ball, but you need to explain why. My goal is get the student to understand why their ball is doing what it is doing and what in their swing is causing the result they are getting.
- My interest in teaching began in 1972, when I began some teaching as a young professional. After a brief playing career, I began to focus on more teaching as a means of income. I began to be exposed to more and more people with different styles and physical makeup. It was in the early 80’s that I discovered the ability to see swing tendencies and what they caused in ball flight. I also developed the skills of presenting the golf swing in a comfortable relaxed manner.
- The passion I receive from teaching comes when I see and share with the student the moment when they experience the understanding and satisfaction of accomplishing what we were trying to do as a team. There is great satisfaction when an accomplished player enjoys success on the course after a lesson, but true passion is realized when a beginning student who thought they could not play the game, becomes a golf player on a regular basis.
This is an opportunity that may help you improve your game.
I have partnered with Ikonik Golf, an online coaching platform that will track all student/coach lesson activities going forward. In addition to storing all of our activities, Ikonik will allow us to communicate through the Ikonik mobile app as we work together towards taking your golf game to the next level.
