When one of Frank Larkin’s golf students shanks a ball during a lesson, the Gold Coast Golf Academy instructor quickly assures them that the bad shot was not their fault. It was his. A PGA-certified pro with experience at the high-school, collegiate, and professional mini-tour levels, Frank understands that trial and error is all part of the learning process. He also believes that a successful golf swing requires a clear mind free of frustration. As golfers learn new concepts—Frank points out swing flaws using video motion analysis—they will inevitably become preoccupied with the lesson at hand and whether their clubs are conspiring against them. Therefore, during lessons, Frank is steadfast and patient, encouraging golfers to find what works best for them at the range, on the practice green, and on the course.
