Re: What Should Teaching Pro Know?

Pro Tour experience!

All too many times I see pros teaching players the wrong things. It makes me sad. I think serious players should concider serious coaches.

Really, the best pros who know the best technics need practice getting that message to their students.

I also think its important to tell your coaches what YOU want. Then they will have an easier time getting you there!

Just a thought, Lets just say I work with many pros on my site!

a good player doesnt make a good coach

you get a pro to do a pro's job

psychology is a good plus to actually know the brain ticks

a goo drelationship with your coach so you understand eachother helps

i have worked with some of the best juniors in the country and some great coaches but they havent all been the best players
