I started playing golf at the age of 11 years old. In 5 years, I became a nationally ranked junior golfer. I accepted a golf scholarship to play for California State University, Northridge. and in 1997, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. I then went on to play professional golf and played in tours in Australia, Canada, and across the United States. In 2001, I began teaching golf. Currently, I serve as the Director of Instruction at Camarillo Springs Golf Course. I have given over 20,000 golf lessons to everyone from beginner level to professionals. Whatever your experience level may be , I can help you reach your golfing goals!
At JALGOLF, state of the art JC Video ARC-30 System and software is utilized so that each student can see what they are doing and can track their progress. I also use Foresight Sports GC2 Launch Monitor to track face angle, ball flight, centerness of contact (smash factor), swing and ball speed. This provides all of the numbers you need to know to help understand your ball flight and quantify improvement!
I do not have a specific teaching philosophy or adhere to one swing technique. I believe the fundamentals are the basis for a consistant, efficient swing. I like to work with the student's existing swing to create matchups that make the swing simple and repeatable. All of this is accomplished in a fun and creative learning environment.
Group lessons are also available upon request. Please contact Jacob for specific pricing.
