Background & Teaching Philosophy

From beginner to accomplished player, Sheryl is committed to equip each student with solid fundamentals, confidence and a practice plan for success. Sheryl helps her students develop a swing based on their natural abilities and body types. The goal is to create or enhance a swing that is “perfect” for the individual, not necessarily a search for the “Perfect Swing.” With Sheryl’s advanced TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) certifications she is able to look at the golf swing through the lens of how your body moves. With her advanced Coaching and Junior Certifications, she brings a comprehensive approach to game improvement~ you will get more than just a “quick fix” type of lesson! It is important that you leave with a clear understanding of cause & effect and then a game plan to make changes and improve!  Sheryl is a passionate student of the game and continually invests in continuing education & advanced certifications.  Her Vision54 training is infused into every lesson which helps her students bridge the gap between taking their skills from the practice range to the course.  Sheryl truly embraces helping her students find “Joy in the journey” while learning, on the golf course and in life!
