Though it's often said that the game of golf requires a lifetime to master, it seems the world neglected to mention that to Philadelphia Golf Lessons’ maestro Adz Kozlowski. Adz's ascendancy to membership in the PGA of America required only eight years; he first started golfing as a 14-year-old and won his pro certification by the age of 22, beginning a 20-year-and-running career as a reputed instructor with an impressive competitive resume, as evidenced by the sizzling round of 67 he carded at a 2006 New Jersey pro invitational.
Adz focuses on making the most of his pupils' natural swing motions by placing emphasis on the "impact position," or the orientation of the clubhead as it makes contact with golf balls or neighbors' flowerbeds. Adz has also created two golf instructional DVDs—"'N Synch Golf" and "Stroke Savers Golf"—which cover concepts such as how to adapt a smoother swing tempo, tackle every type of short-game shot, and hypnotize fellow golfers into giving pupils a gimme on any putt within 10 feet of the cup.
