From the very start, Derek’s relaxed manner, and his simplistic approach to hitting the ball worked for me. If one way of explaining, or doing something did not click, he had another approach that would! I am so pleased to have found someone I enjoy so much working with, and feel that I am gaining some much needed confidence in this game.

Derek Schnarr is one of the top teachers in the country. He has the innate ability to identify varying levels of opportunity in a player’s golf swing, and work together with any individual to improve. More importantly, Derek teaches well beyond the mechanics of the golf swing. He is one of the true “golf coaches” in both on course mindset and course management.
