A veritable Johnny Appleseed of golf, Executive Links' local instructor, Pete Dalis travels up to 30 miles from the city’s center to meet pupils at a course or golf facility of their choice and bury divot tools that will sprout into straight-hitting drivers. The passionate pedagogue imparts golf wisdom culled from a 19-year playing career that began when—as a high schooler—he met the late, sharply-dressed champ Payne Stewart. He’s also well-equipped to help athletes in other areas transfer their skills to the green; he spent six years as a college football coach at USC and UCLA. In lessons, he aims to outfit students with powerful, precise swings, a steady stance, and laser-like focus. Call or email Pete to schedule your lesson and designate a convenient location.
Executive Links’ golfing reps play along with golfers in order to help them to perfect their game in real time. Under instructors' tutelage, golfletes will shear strokes from their averages on their choice of local course, as opposed to a driving range. Pros go beyond just perfecting swings and focus on the mental aspects of golfing, proffering advice on course-management tips, such as when to go for the green, when to lay up, and how to motivate lackadaisical ball washers. They mold lessons around pupils' styles and goals, ensuring athletes master new techniques without completely altering their personal styles. The teachers often give corporations a leg up on competitors by escorting prospective clients around the links and doling out instruction, employing the same degree of courtesy as Romeo would have required to meet Juliet’s parents.
