Philadelphia Area Golf Instructors?

6 posts in this topic

I've decided to take lessons early next spring before the season begins and have started to pull together a "short list" of instructors in my area. I live just north of Philadelphia and was wondering if there are any local forum members willing to offer their recomendations for instructors in the area.

Ed Gibson or Bruce Fleming at Makefield Highlands in Yardley, PA. I have used Ed in the past and have had great results......I would recommend either one.

I believe both @nevets88 and @JetFan1983 can give you some feedback, but I recommend taking a look at this page:

John Dunigan would be a great choice. Works with kids, PGA Tour players, and everyone in between.

I'd recommend Mario Bevilacqua, but he's out in Vegas now although he comes back now and then. If I were in Philly, I'd try iacas's (I can't find the @ thing) suggest ions.

I'm not sure how much help I could be... I would've recommended Mario Bevelaqua but sadly he moved to Vegas. Agreed on John Dunigan... I've never worked with him, but I like what he's about. Also agreed on checking out the list of 5SK instructors. Honestly, I'd go that route first and pick the guy closest to you.

The best instructors I know unfortunately are in Erie, Southern California, and Florida though, so again, I don't think I'd be much help here. I'm actually a bit embarrassed I don't have any good suggestions for the local area other than what Erik said...

If you're planning it for next spring, you have a lot of time to get something together. I think your best bet would be to book a weekend stay in Erie and then seeing Erik and Dave for a clinic. I really can't think of a better way to kick your season off. Then I would supplement with Evolvr throughout the next months.

    • foot-note. The assembled shaft is 43 1/2 inches. This is a little short for a driver which adds to my conclusion that a previous owner had tipped the shaft and the piece was somehow left inside and held there by friction until I tapped it loose during my re-shaft. Also, the fact that it was on an adjustable driver, they probably had to cut it short to accommodate the hosel adapter.   Sorry, if I tend to answer my own questions, but it does not hurt to seek out confirmations.     "golf club forensics". 
    • The new shaft was from an adjustable Tour Edge XCG-7 (Matrix White Tie-Stiff). I did a little research and I am fairly certain it was somehow left in the shaft (maybe on purpose just to piss somebody off -it was not new) when they originally tipped it. There is normally quite a bit of the parallel tip to cut from and the fact that it was exactly 1.75 inches long, leads me to believe that it is the piece cut off. I am surprized it didn't come loose before I switched shafts. I am not positive mind you, but after looking at photos of tip trimming, that's exactly what it looks.  Heck, for all I know, it may even have been trapped inside the shaft  and only came loose after numerous changes in the (so-called) loft adjustment.   Anyway, no biggie, I am just a curious sort and obsessive tinkerer.    Thanks, Shorty.
    • Some golf instructor should tell Ernie that feel is not real 
    • 5/26:  Finally made it out to the club today.  Take that, life. 25 mins. range session, working middle irons; focus on not rushing/flipping, and thumping into the ball.  Got a compliment on my swing/flight from an older guy.  Not sure if he was serious, or making fun. 10 mins. putting session; worked 5 footers for most of it, focusing on stroke, and working to get rid of the little push that's cropped up; then worked lags...good session. Walked 18 holes.  Just tried to incorporate focus from recent sessions into everything without overthinking it.  No birdies, unfortunately.  Had a chip-in that somehow hit the pin - not moving quickly at all - and still bounced out.  Baffled me.  Had a ~30 footer on 18 for birdie that I was just trying to lag over a ridge for an easy par.  Kept trickling right at it, then slid right and curled around the edge to 2" behind the cup.  Cruel.  Still - great to get back out there.
    • Post a photo when your battery is charged. My guess is that it is epoxy that was in the end of a bore through shaft.
