Cowpernicus Golf Instruction


Individual Attention

As a certified golf teacher Cowpernicus can help you understand the fundamentals of the golf swing. He will observe, diagnose and correct your swing while focusing on what you can do. Each golfer brings their own unique patterns and comforts to the golf swing. He will work with you to build on what you already do.

Flexible Teaching Facilities

We can work at our local facility or move to a comfortable location for you and your group. With access to courses, ranges and indoor facilities we are not limited due to weather or location. If the weather does not cooperate we can schedule an “in-Garage” session in our full-swing booth.

What golfers are saying:

Uncle Jamie makes it fun. I want to keep playing when he helps me.

― Jett P., 8

I have never hit a ball like that! My wife isn’t going to believe it. I couldn’t believe how much he helped me out there on the range.

― Dave N., 73
