ABOUT JIM FLICK
Some people are natural-born teachers, and Jim Flick is certainly one of them. He has spent a lifetime dedicated to helping golfers become better players – from novices to some of the greatest champions of our time. Jim has been motivated and driven by his enthusiasm and love for the game of golf. His 31 years of experience with over 200 touring professionals has earned him the uncontested title of America’s Master Golf Teacher.
Jim feels that the teaching of golf has become much too complex and mechanical. The resulting confusion and tension lead to the deterioration of the player’s athleticism and ability to score. He also knows that golfers want help on a more personal basis, more short game training and more time on the golf course. While there are many ways to teach and play, time has shown that simplicity is best for most. Jim believes that the true art of teaching golf is in helping each student to better understand their challenges and to become their own coach thereby enabling the self-confidence and self-reliance to continue learning and improving long after the formal lessons.
Golf is a game of constantly making adjustments which requires a deep understanding of tendencies and habits. Even the best of players need another set of eyes from time to time. Jim provides that invaluable extra set of eyes through customized group instruction, individual instruction and corporate golf outings.
