Helmed by PGA-certified golf guru [Brandon Richardson](http://gr.pn/oPYykL), Golf with Freedom imparts golf wisdom to pupils and emphasizes the importance of self-reliance in lessons designed to vanquish self-doubt in favor of enthusiasm for learning about golf. Golf with Freedom’s instructors foster swings through a confident exploration of each pupil’s individual, natural abilities, which are best discovered in a constructive environment devoid of harsh criticism and the snarky backtalk of anthropomorphic club-head covers. Based on the premise that a golfer’s score is often determined in shots within 100 yards of each hole, scoring-game clinics focus on the short game, helping duffers chip, pitch, and flop-shot balls close to the pin. Along with an hour of individual attention to their fairway-finding fortitude, those who opt for a private lesson can enlist video analysis in their session, which provides a visual aid to help them to better understand instructors’ corrective advice. With all options, nascent golfers without serviceable clubs or modified plumbing equipment can borrow a set of clubs and practice balls from Golf with Freedom.

In 2011, Brandon Richardson became a Class A PGA Instructor and a nominee for the Oregon Chapter PGA Teacher of the Year award. These prestigious accolades did not come easily; they were the culmination of more than two decades of teaching and professional play that included stints on the Nationwide Tour. As Golf with Freedom’s founder and director of coaching, Brandon's coaching style allows golfers to grow and develop as a golfer within an environment free of judgment or evaluation, creating a sense of calm toward misbehaving 9-irons. His programs—which range from private coaching classes to small-group and women-only workshops—aim to increase one's ability to self-coach by making swing adjustments on the fly or subbing in a stunt double for help with a particularly difficult lie.
