Description
My name is Greg Jones and I have been a golf instructor for the past 23 year’s. I previously owned Vic's Golf & Teaching Center and I am an OSU Mansfield College Golf Professor. I was voted as Mansfield's teacher of year; I have had 3 TV shows and many teaching success stories.

I will now be offering 10 and 12 hour monthly golf programs to consist of instruction in the following areas:

• Golf Swing
• Putting
• Short Game
• Bunker Play
• Driving
• Nutrition
• Stretching
• Strength & Muscles
• Playing Lessons
• Course Management
• How To Practice
• Practice Drills

As a personal swing coach I will travel to you. The entire program will be taught at your home course the way it should be. Never again will you say I hit them better on the range than I do on the course. Never again take that 1/2 hour lesson on a range and be disappointed with the way you played the next day.

Learn it all and impress your friends and playing partners. Get your children involved and get them the scholarship they deserve. I teach nearly 1000 golfers a year and I can guarantee your improvement and can also take your junior golfer to any level they have the talent and desire to achieve.

Thousands of scholarships go unclaimed each year in girls’ college golf. If you work hard we can achieve the success to claim a scholarship and I can help with getting you in front of college coaches that are recruiting. Girls that are able to consistently break 47 and under for nine holes are what colleges are looking for. Working hard together we can achieve this goal.

The cost of the program will depend on the distance I have to travel. I will also teach individual lessons if you so choose. I can come to you or you can come to me.
Relevant Education / Credentials
I was privileged to have owned and operated for the past 18 years one of the most best teaching facilities in Ohio (Vic's Golf & Teaching Center) which is a 43 acre teaching center that we sold in August of 2008. I have attended nearly 20 different teaching seminars and instructional schools. I placed 25th in 2006 in the Taylor Made Open in Mexico. I have 4 course records and have had more at different times. I am blessed to have been granted the ability to teach golf. I can communicate in different ways so that the information being taught can be understood. Many of my students have played college golf, won club championships and play high school golf.
