A veritable Johnny Appleseed of golf, Executive Links' local instructor, Brian Cairns, travels up to 30 miles from Ann Arbor’s city center to meet pupils at a course or golf facility of their choice. A Class A PGA member, Brian honed his craft over a four-year career on the golf team at Barry University and continued to compete in pro tours, earning a brief spot on the Buy.com Tour. The two-time Michigan PGA Player of the Year draws from his competitive background and enlists teaching strategies culled from training under the tutelage of Jim Flick and Hank Haney to help pupils improve their golf games. Call or email Matthew 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.
