A veritable Johnny Appleseed of golf, Executive Links’ local instructor, Brian Alderson, travels up to 30 miles from Columbia’s city 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 career playing at Purdue University and finishing in the top 5% of apprentices at PGA business-school levels I and II. Call or email Brian to schedule your lesson and designate a convenient location.<p>
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.
