Rather than adopting a "cookie-cutter" approach to teaching, Patricia believes that each student's individual goals, preferred style of learning, and existing physical limitations should dictate the optimum learning path. Unfortunately, many methodology teachers do not take these personal factors into account, impeding a student's ability to make changes easily and quickly. With a customized approach, Patricia works with your body and normal tendencies — and not against you — resulting in a swing that does not place unnecessary strain on your body or produce unpleasant or painful positions. Working within your own capabilities will ensure that your swing is more natural and easier to repeat.
Patricia addresses the total golfer in her teaching, ensuring that every aspect of your individual game — physical, technical, mental, and emotional — is attended to. Her goal is to improve your swing and scores and also to increase your confidence level and enjoyment of the game.
