Emerson is currently working on becoming a Class A Professional and 2024 will be his second year with HeatherGlen. While at a very young age Emerson was introduced to the game of golf, having been lucky enough to learn and develop his game with many great teaching professionals. One being Derek Ingram, one of Canada's top teaching professionals and from these teachings he has constructed his teaching philosphy and plans by currently focusing on two types of lessons, one being the "Constructive lesson" and the other being the "Correction lesson"
Constructive Lesson: We will begin on working with you're grip, Posture, Ball positon, Aim and Alignment, I want to help build the most effective swing for that persons body type and their unique tendencies. This type of lesson will be reserved for the new golfer or junior golfer, but also a great refresher for any experiecned player struggling with these key areas of improvement.
Correction Lesson: Will work with a golfers existing swing, perhaps you are currently in a swing 'Slump". You might be slicing or shanking the golf ball, perhaps you're aim and alingment is off, the list of possibilities are endless! We will work together at getting all the parts working together and getting back to more consistant ball striking so you can continue to improve and enjoy the game to its fullest!
