GOLF: A Game of Wealth

Wealth is fully experiencing life. There are both good and bad experiences. Most golfers try to teach themselves how to play and they become poor golfers relative to their potential. Instead, I want you to be a wealthy golfer by experiencing the game correctly; learning and developing to achieve your personal goals.


Experience Defined:

1. An event occurrence that leaves an impression.
2. Practical contact with and observation of facts or events.
3. Encountering or undergoing an event (feeling/emotion).
4. Knowledge or skill acquired by experience over a period of time—especially when gained in a particular profession.

I want you to learn golf quickly and effectively—through experience. Research shows experience is a more effective way to learn golf than watching it online, reading about it in a book or listening to an instructor on TV. Therefore, I will use as few words as possible.

Let’s Go!


Come to the complimentary Golf Clinic & Exhibition at the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Monday afternoon. Hands-on and interactive, you will touch and feel the golf swing in ways words cannot describe. You will feel effortless power and speed. You will be in awe of what the golf ball does when you do very little. Clubs will be provided and the spot is cool and shady.

Common comments heard during the clinic include, “I can’t believe what ease and grace produced such a nice powerful shot,” “I can play golf,” “That is not what I have been doing” and “I want more of that!”

Practical Content:

When you learn how to hold the club correctly, address the ball correctly and after I swing with you, teaching you what to feel and how to do it, the experience will stay with you for a lifetime. You will not have to interpret words from TV or a book.


You will encounter the truth during the clinic and the truth will set you free. Golf is about freedom over the lies in our life that keep us from being the best we can be. But freedom has a cost. We must learn the truth. The truth leads to experiencing the true “Spirit of the Game.” The true Spirit of the Game is counter to our culture of “more and faster.” Say this after me, “Less is more.”

Most golfers, beginner or advanced, say, “I never felt this before” or “I have occasionally experienced this before, but I did not know how to repeat it,” “The book I read did not mention that” or “My pro back home never taught me this.”

Knowledge Becomes Wisdom:

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is never putting a tomato in a fruit salad. I had a student who wanted to hit the ball far. He swung hard, until he became very tired, and the ball never went far. After fatigue set in and he could not swing hard, the ball went further. Another example is a doctor who wants more control, to hit the ball straight, and holds on tight to control the club. The ball never goes straight. After he develops blisters and relaxes his grip, the ball starts going straighter.

Call me now to become a wealthy golfer and experience the true spirit of the game.
