Paul Holtby, PGA
Instructional Philosophy: I do not rely on a single methodology. I believe in fundamentals along with
a swing style that fits your body ... one that you can repeat.
What is best for you? Single Plane or 2 Plane, Single or Dual Pivot, Stack and Tilt, Wide Arc or Narrow Arc,
Upright or Shallow, Natural Golf, One Piece Take-A-Way or Early Set, Hinge and Hold?
"The Perfect Swing" is one that YOU can repeat with consistency, one that you can trust. Paul Holtby, PGA
Teacher, Guide, Mentor and Coach with over 20 years of experience in both teaching and playing competitive golf.
Philosophy: Golf Swings and Golf Games are like Finger Prints. We all have them and they are unique to each person. Because everyone is built differently in regards to body type, muscle mass, flexibility and physical strength, we need to develop a golf swing and a golf game specifically for you. One that can be repeated, that will lead to lower scores, and create more enjoyable golf.

Jim Swagerty, PGA
PGA Teaching Professional
I am a 24 year member of the P.G.A. During my career I have been an Assistant Golf Professional, Golf Instructor, and Head Golf Professional, at such clubs as North Ranch CC, Annandale Golf Club, The Los Angeles CC, Wing Point CC in Wa.,Saticoy CC, and for the last 11 years at El Caballero CC.
During my time Teaching and Learning about the Golf Swing at all of those clubs I have learned that it is best to start with just a few of the basics for a good golf swing. You will then be able to build a solid foundation to help form a repeatable golf swing.
As we work together on your golf game we will also explore other areas of golf, such as... Putting, Chipping, Lob Shots, The Sand game, and any other areas we feel needs improving.
Tom Szwedzinski, PGA
Tom is a Quarter Century Member of the Professional Golf Association of America and during those years he has taught thousands of students from beginner to members of the PGA and LPGA tours. Tom possesses thorough knowledge of the golf swing and has the ability to communicate this knowledge in a simple and comprehensive way to his students. Tom also utilizes a state of the art video system to enhance the learning process of the students.
“Golf is a game of angles, a player must obey the laws of physics as they swing, it is not about how a player looks when he swings. I do not teach style, I make sure all the angles in a players swing are correct and then the player improves. The player will get a complete knowledge of how and why a ball reacts the way it does and then the player is on the path to fixing his/her swing.
On the range you will often hear Tom and his favorite saying, “Golf is easy, Golf is Fun, Golf is for everyone!” and watching him work with a student you can see he really believes it. “Golf is a game and you have to fun while you are learning”, so a lesson with Tom is both enlightening and entertaining.
Tom is available for private and group lessons.
