"Technology has changed the golf swing! However, I believe many instructors are teaching the same principles taught 40 years ago. The fundamentals will always be a priority but I think technology has shown us the movements and motion to create speed are now different in the modern golfer. Technology has also shown us that some people are not physically capable of making certain movements. It is very important a teacher recognizes this and either helps the student learn how to improve their limitations or teaches around it." Hope to see you soon!
