All instructional programs are tailored to the needs of each player using the latest teaching techniques and equipment. His teaching philosophy focuses on getting players to enjoy the game of golf and to feel as though they are constantly improving.

Getting students to understand how the club is being swung and how that affects ball flight is the fundamental goal. Any swing changes that are made will be done to directly correct or change ball flights. These changes are made simply and naturally with easy and manageable swing thoughts that translate into immediate results.

From getting young players ready for college competition through solid swing fundamentals and good course management, to customizing individual or group lessons for men and women, Stuart welcomes the opportunity to assist all players in elevating their golf skills and their love for the game.
