About My Business:

 

Owen Dawson is currently the P.G.A. Director of Instruction at the Country Club of Maryland in Towson Maryland. Since being introduced to golf instruction 17 years ago at P.G.A. National Resort, Owen continues to refine his teaching methods. Over the past 17 years Owen has had the privilege of learning the different teaching styles of some of the top 100 golf instructors in the country, such as: Mike Bender - Magnolia Plantations, Lake Mary, Fl Bill Davis - Jupiter Hills, Tequesta, Fl Jim Suttie - Twin Eagles, Naples, Fl Rick Smith Golf Academies - Tiberon, Naples, Fl Jack Lumpkin - Sea Island Golf Club, Sea Island, Ga Mike Shannon - Sea Island Golf Club, Sea Island, Ga Gail Petersen - Sea Island Golf Club, Sea Island, Ga Wayne DeFrancesco - Woodmont CC, MD Tom Patri - Naples Grand, Naples, Fl Mike Adams - Broken Sound Golf Club Some other influences that have helped Owen define his teaching methods include seminars featuring Greg Rose - Co-Founder Titleist Performance Institute, Rick Martino, Jim McLean, Craig Farnsworth and the "Back to Golf"physical therapy seminars. Studying the swings of tour players has also played an important role in Owen's teaching methodology. With an extensive database of many of the top players both past and present, it's easier to see how tour players of all shapes and sizes can find a way to create a repeatable swing. By studying the swings of different tour players Owen can give each student a better diagnosis of what swing changes should be made using various drills. Modeling a student's swing against a tour player with similar physical characteristics allows for a better approach to building a more efficient swing. Everyone is different and each individual brings with them a different body type and ability level. Whether tall, short, flexible, inflexible, bad back, etc. - these different conditions require very different approaches to golf instruction. Owen tries to build swings based on one's range of motion and athletic ability and does not try to build text book swings as they do not exist. Owen will give you the tools you need to improve, but be prepared to step outside of your comfort zone when you practice. Regardless of your current playing ability, making any swing change can be a difficult thing to do. The quicker you start implementing your practice drills, the quicker your game will improve. Learning to swing the club correctly is more of a journey, not a quick fix. So enjoy the journey, it's certainly better than the alternative.............
