“Be your Own Best Coach!”
Creating harmony between the mind and body is necessary for finding happiness in life and, not surprisingly, golf is no different. Seiko Matsumura believes that balancing physical-technical skill and mental-emotional composure leads to peak performance. A clear mind leads to lower scores through improved focus and performance in all areas, from the short game to the full swing. Seiko delivers accessible lessons that lead to student independence and self-correction. She strongly believes that golf coaching should not only improve the player in the moment, but also be sustainable for subsequent practice and, most importantly, transferable to the golf course. Seiko focuses on the cause and effect, supervised practice, transfer training, and play model, where students see short-term results and long-term improvement. Her coaching leads to durable, sustainable swing methods and a positive mental-state. Students leave each lesson with an expectancy of improvement and the resources for advancement. By working with Seiko, you receive the enduring benefit of becoming your own best coach!
