Frank Hesson began his career as a professional golf instructor at the age of 20, fine-tuning the swings of his students in the shadow of the McDowell Mountain Range at the prestigious Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale, Arizona. Over the past 17 years, Hesson has worked as an assistant professional at four South Jersey golf clubs before becoming head professional at Renault Winery Resort.
During lessons, Hesson follows a teaching philosophy that simplifies golf skills and tailors each lesson plan to his students needs. Frank focuses on each player's individual playing style and tendencies for passive-aggressive golf-carting to help him or her develop comfortable, dependable swing mechanics. Teaching aides include on-course lessons on an 18-hole course, as well as virtual swing analysis and club recommendations from a virtual caddie.
