He has more than 15 years of extensive experience in successful teaching and training. We offer golf lessons and golf instruction to men, women and children (kids starting at 5 years old) in Vancouver, West Vancouver, North Vancouver, East Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Tsawwassen, White Rock and surrounding area for golfers of all levels. Whether you are a golf beginner or experienced golfer and would like to seek breakthrough, or perfect your game for the next tournament, Matt Daniel would very happy to share with you his 25 points of success golf.
Our philosophy is to get the student to understand their own swing so they can become more successful playing competitive golf.
When we are playing in competition we don’t have the luxury of thinking about our swing when we actually swing the club. It has to be a tension-free swing. I teach students how to simplify their swing so they can be comfortable in the pressure situations. They will be able to adapt to hitting any type of shot on the spot. As well, they will be able to instantly deal with, and recover from hitting bad shots.
