Why Xcel Golf?

I believe that at whatever level you play as a golfer, you must always remember its a game and is to be enjoyed. Sportsmanship, discipline and human values are just as important as training to win and competing. 

I base my success and impact as a Professional Golf Coach on this personalized but global approach. Professional Coaches teach more than technique we also cover the mental game, course management, equipment, practice methods, fitness and equipment.

That being said if we want to improve we have to know where we are.  Evaluations are part of the process as is making sure you have the proper equipment.  There are many great manufacturers but the best quality for value offering  for most golfers is ???? Golf.

What every golfer wants!

         

  •  Hit better golf shots, 

  • Shoot lower scores and 

  •  Have more fun!

It doesn't matter what level you play the game.

That's our mission at XCEL-GOLF.

Are you confused, frustrated, and discouraged with the overload of technical information in golf instruction?

Are you tired of bashing ball after ball on the range without improving or berating yourself after a poor decision?

Are you unable to tap into your natural, unique, intuitive, instinctive golf swing?

Would you like to play with calm confidence or an alert indifference?

Do you seem to lose your focus of attention because your training and learning are not challenging enough?

Are you making mental errors and decisional errors because of unclear intentions?

Do you lack attentional focus and commitment? 

Are your swings filled with body positions and swing mechanics that block your natural swing patterns?

Are your equipment choices holding you back, or are they optimizing your dispersion and distance?

"Dazed and confused for so long I don't know." (Led Zepplin)

Xcel-Golf can help!

All you need is an authentic, genuine, unconditional love of the game and a process mindset.  You need to be curious and fascinated with the journey. You play for the right reasons; the sound, the energy, camaraderie, exercise, and the chance to connect with nature.  You understand that inconsistency is a part of the game, and adaptability is your greatest asset. 

 

"If your why is important, you will find the how.

Why do you play golf?"

Xcel-Golf will help you ask the right questions, focus your attention, reduce judgments, encourage exploration and discovery, and increase your internal and external awareness.  We guarantee that you will hit better shots, score better and enjoy the game even more.

As your coach, I will guide you with a simple, exploratory, natural, and efficient way to learn the golf swing, make better shots, shoot lower scores, and have more fun!

I will help you find your unique, most effective, and functional golf swing.  You will become your own best coach.

We will create an environment where "the joy of overcoming obstacles is more important than winning and the conversation about what you learn becomes the norm." (Fred Shoemaker, 2006)

Xcel-Golf will guide you with the "the only two things you need to hit better shots, shoot lower scores, and have more fun!

 

CONTROL OF THE BALL &  CONTROL OF YOURSELF

​"The problem many golfers face is that they get so completely off track trying to control the ball, they spend virtually no time whatsoever on working on the second aspect – controlling themselves." (Karl Morris 2014)

Xcel-Golf uses a dual strategy to hit better shots and shoot lower scores.

      1.  Optimizing learning of skill (Physical, Mental and Emotional) with intention, an external focus of attention, exploratory learning, self-discovery, and effective training strategies.

      2.  Simple swing, shot-making, and impact skills are explored that focus on the present and the only reality that matters; the club, the ball, the body, the target, and the shot.  Objective feedback is shared. 

            

"The most enjoyable way to improve a golf swing, hit better shots, and shoot lower scores is to combine effective clubhead control and optimize skill acquisition strategies.  (technical, mental, and emotional skills).

Luckily, science shows us that the simplest approach is the best.  We learn motor skills implicitly; we learn skills best when we focus on what to achieve, not how to achieve it."            (Chris Riddoch 2012)

Xcel-Golf uses technology to simplify, quantify, optimize learning, and give immediate feedback.

We don't guess we asses!

Fundamentals remain important.  Technique and the mechanics of the golf swing are still essential but simplified.  We explore creating shots and understanding what the golf ball is doing at impact, increasing and controlling distance and direction through our senses. Don't swing harder or faster than we can experience it.

Xcel-Golf uses Flightscope, Hack Motion wrist sensors, Salted pressure tracking, TPI Body Swing Screening (Titleist Performance Institute), Red Zone Short game evaluations to guide players with objective, unbiased data, and feedback.  To help us swing the club with a functional movement pattern that matches our unique bodies and swing styles.  At Xcel-Golf, you start with a personalized blueprint to optimize learning and to help you become your own best coach. 

Swing mechanics and block practice (technique practice) can improve strike location.  However, a better way of learning shot-making and the game of golf is by changing your intentions.

Start by asking questions and focusing on external cues, target, ball, ball flight, club head, and the club's motion while swinging freely, without the interference of thought.

NOT BODY OR CLUB POSITIONS!

SEE IT, FEEL IT, DO IT!

XCEL-GOLF coaches the game of golf -  not just the golf swing or making shots.  We address the importance of internal and external awareness to deal with the emotional and mental sides of the game, to be able to manage the game and score better.  Our comprehensive coaching includes equipment appraisal and fitting, finesse wedges, long-distance wedges, chipping, scrambling, trouble shots, and putting.

Let's have some fun!
