History of Modern Golf Instruction
"I started swinging the club at the age of four.  My dad built me some clubs a year later.  My love to play golf and help others learn continues."  Martin Gonzales

Hello,
I teach learning skills, concepts, provide developmental swing training, and coach course strategy for golf athletes of all levels.  I train students of the game like any other sports coach.  The UW Golf Range is our gym.  We will establish realistic but challenging goals, learn the game & rules, and train.  The range provides potential to practice putting, chipping, pitching and swing training.  

Playing golf is essential to visualizing and creating shots which challenge the course and your imagination.  Combining playing with training will help you sense and know your own development.  Play to learn and learn to play!  How you progress depends on your experience and knowledge of what you do with your game on the course.   


I developed Modern Golf Instruction from 42 years of golf experience, learning to teach, and a passion to grow golf.  What makes it Modern?

My drills, learning concepts, and techniques to learning skills are based on "brain compatible" research and studies.    I am also inspired and motivated by the work and lineage of Master PGA Professional Michael Hebron, Nike 360 Degree Specialist, Dr. Daniel Benson and mental golf/sports coach Dr. William Chandon.  I continue to learn and evolve from Neuro Learning for Golf research & studies and physical therapy.  Thanks for your interest.
