A father’s perspective
Ethan started his golf lessons with Jeff on September 25th, 2021, marking the very month he celebrated his 12th birthday. Throughout the last two years, our routine involved bi-weekly or tri-weekly commutes between our residence in Sammamish, WA, and Jeff’s Golf Academy in Blaine, WA. Witnessing Ethan’s evolution from a youngster to a teenager, I, as the father of a junior golfer, reflect on the remarkable transformation in Ethan’s golf proficiency under Jeff’s guidance. Looking back, every mile traveled and every minute spent with Jeff has proven to be invaluable.
A former elite PGA tour player and highly regarded golf coach renowned for his expertise in the sport, Jeff brings a unique blend of experience and insight to the game, backed by a wealth of lifelong experience and a proven track record. He is a maestro in refining golf swing mechanics, enhancing mental fortitude, and perfecting strategic course management. Jeff’s meticulous approach and keen eye for detail have transformed swings into precise and powerful works of art. In addition to regular lessons with Jeff, Ethan had the opportunity to participate in the Coston/Mike Bender Golf School twice in the last two years. With a wealth of knowledge, both coaches dissect the intricacies of Ethan’s golf swing, providing guidance that transcends conventional coaching. Under their guidance, Ethan’s swing has evolved into a seamless fusion of grace and effectiveness, showcasing the true mastery of two elite golf coaches.
Jeff is far more than a swing coach. His expertise extends to fostering an environment of enthusiasm and mental skill development that is truly unparalleled. His patient and encouraging approach not only cultivates a love for the game but also instills valuable life lessons. It is inspiring to see how he blended technical instruction with a genuine passion for helping Ethan reach his full potential. Jeff has become a positive influence and made the world of golf so enjoyable for Ethan. His ability to seamlessly intertwine elite-level expertise with a deep understanding of the mental aspects of golf is truly remarkable. Under Jeff’s guidance, Ethan has not only elevated his golf skills but has also embraced a competitive mentality. Learning from someone like Jeff, who excels in his own game and imparts invaluable mental strategies, has become indispensable for Ethan. The transformation under his guidance reflects not just improvement as a golfer but a well-rounded mastery of the game.
I want to convey my heartfelt gratitude for Jeff’s exceptional guidance and unwavering support for Ethan. Jeff’s expertise, patience, and commitment have elevated Ethan’s skills as a golfer. Thank you, Jeff, for instilling in him a deep passion for the game and for being a constant source of inspiration. Your dedication to excellence has left a lasting impact, and I am genuinely thankful for the positive influence you’ve had on Ethan’s golf journey.
