Chuck Cook - Philosophy

My philosophy about teaching golf is pretty simple. I don’t think there is a universal best way to swing club. Rather, everyone has his or hier own "unique" way of swinging that club.

I believe that if most instructors were honest, they would admit to having some strong preferences as to what they think are “best” swing styles. I am certainly one of those instructors. However, after teaching golf for over 25 years, I realize that not everyone has the time, talent or desire to change their fundamentals.

A student of mine, Tom Kite, wants to try the newest techniques in hope of improving an already great golf game. On the other hand, student Payne Stewart feels that he doesn’t need to change his style in order to reach his goals. Since I teach both of these great golfers, I have to be able to answer to their individual needs.

For you to reach your goals, you need to decide if your current style is good enough or do you need to make some changes. Do you need more distance, more accuracy, better putting or chipping, a stronger mental game or more physically fit? These are the questions that you need to answer with your teacher and formulate a plan to get there. This is what I do and what I believe. It’s worked for my students and me and I believe it can work for you too!
