About Dave Johnson Golf Experience at Rooster Run
After a quarter-century of teaching the golf swing, one might suppose Dave Johnson had developed all sorts of complex theories on its proper execution. In reality, the PGA pro's approach has only simplified. He believes in reducing the motion to its most basic elements, which results in better outcomes on the golf course, less physical stress on the body over the long-term, and fewer injuries to bystanders. In the process, players become true students of the game, learning to shave strokes and more thoroughly enjoy the game as a result. The vineyards surrounding Rooster Run Golf Club form a scenic backdrop to lessons and clinics on topics as specialized as navigating sand and as basic as golf for absolute beginners.
