Gabriel Altshule, PGA Certified Golf Instructor

Gabriel Altshule is a PGA member and is PGA Certified in Teaching and Coaching. Gabe has been teaching golf for over a decade and has helped golfers of all ages and skill levels. Gabe understands that it is important to know what the golfer wants to achieve from the game of golf. Before you take any lessons from Gabe, he will want to know what your goals are and what is going to help you enjoy this great game even more.

“Every golfer wants to be more consistent. I want to find out what being more consistent means to you. Do you want more consistency with contact, direction, scoring, all of the above? I think it is important for a coach and student to understand what the goals are and what the plan is to achieve these goals. A coach/student relationship is dynamic and needs open communication for the best possible results.”

“My core philosophy is that every golfer needs to have a good grip that promotes the ball flight they want to achieve. Every golfer needs to swing with balance and control the low point of the swing for the best contact. I also think every golfer should understand the swing plane and how the face to path relationship effects ball flight. We will have fun in each lesson and you will learn how to understand your own swing with all of your unique abilities.”

Gabe uses V1 Mobile Coaching Analysis for students to visually see the swing and why the correction is necessary for their improvement. Each lesson will include lesson content and notes as well as the necessary drills and practice routine for the golfer to retrain the motions by neuroplasticity (fancy for muscle memory). Neuroplasticity is how the brain retrains the messages that are being sent to your muscles in order to perform a skill proficiently. This comes from the proper training routines that Gabe provides in order to reach the level of consistency you may be looking for.
