Known in the golfing community for his innovative teaching techniques which break down the complex aspects of the golf swing into easy to learn steps. With his simple techniques, Bruce's students quickly grasp the skills of the game.
His golf lessons focus on evaluating your swing using the latest video techniques, assessing where improvements can be made and ultimately bringing you to a new level of skill with your game. His coaching philosophy is based on knowing you cannot standardize the golf swing as it's important to develop the swing based on your capabilities and after determining the most efficient way for you to swing the club.

Really enjoyed camp
"My son really enjoyed the camp, however, they didn't really focus on the clubs he has trouble hitting with, even though he did inform them. Overall there was improvement, but he still struggles with those "fear clubs". Again, he did enjoy the camp and plans to attend again. Thanks."
— Eli P. Parent
Instructors were great
"The instructors were great, very helpful! It was very hot that week, but they still had a ton of energy and made it fun."
— Ethan W. Camper
Very happy with instructors and facility
"My son was very happy with the instructors and facilities, the only missing element that I think is very helpful for everyone is to film you and be able to watch your swing and understand the mistakes you are doing by watching them. Thank you."
