Gaylord Rhodes the “Vegas Golf Coach” has over 30 years experience as a Golf Professional dedicating 26 of those years to educating, coaching and teaching professionals and amateurs all over the US. He is a Certified Master Henry-Griffitts Club Fitter®, GSEB certified Golfing Machine instructor.
He created Rhoderunner Golf in 2003 to further the growth of golf by providing locations dedicated to player development, club fitting, instructing and coaching students of all levels.
After my first 15 years of teaching it became clear that player development and coaching golf was way more effective than simply teaching golf. The students that I developed long-term relationships with as a friend, coach and golfing mentor allowed me to work and develop a game plan designed to help them reach their goals in golf and provided us both with a much more rewarding learning experience.
A Coach Is a Person Who Knows What You Need and Helps You Get It!
As your Coach it becomes my job to provide you with a non-judgmental environment, a clear picture of what your swing should look and feel like, then put together a plan to help you minimize your compensations making you swing easier to repeat and requiring less timing.
My initial coaching sessions allow me to evaluate your swing, your athletic ability, your time and practice commitment. This allows us to develop a plan to help you reduce your swing compensations and develop a better balanced swing. Ultimately, when you understand your compensations and have a clear picture and understanding of why you hit it left, right and straight you will be able to make proper adjustments based on what the ball is doing. This will free you up to become more target aware and less mechanical and you will finally be free to play better golf, improve your scores and most importantly have more fun.
“A bad swing gives you minimum time to make maximum compensations, and a good swing gives you maximum time to make minimum compensations.” -Mac O’Grady
