Meet Dave Garcia

My Passion

I fell in love with the game of golf at age 12 and quickly realized this was not a game I could master without professional instruction.

My golf teaching education comes from Gregg McHatton, PGA (ranked in the top 20 of California’s best teachers) and G.S.E.D. Instructor of the book The Golfing Machine by Homer Kelly. I was also taught by Bruce Hamilton PGA (ranked in the top 100 best teachers in the USA by Golf Magazine). I am a member of the National Professional Golf Instructors Association (whose sole purpose is to teach golf) and an Instructor for National Golf Schools who run over 50 golf schools in America.

GGA is also pleased to be an Authorized Teacher of the Lynn Blake Professional Teachers Program.

My Philosophy

Garcia Golf Academy is an Authorized Instructor schooled by the Lynn Blake Certified Professional Teaching Program. First I teach each student on an individual basis. Communication is foremost to learning, by asking my students their goals, wants and needs I can better service them. I teach a solid foundation, Grip, Posture, Alignment and the basic Laws of Geometry.

Golf is a complex sport; turning complex information into simple understanding is my objective.

Golf at its core should be fun, countless golfers struggle with their games for one reason or another, consequently my single purpose is to increase my students golfing skills and their enjoyment of the game.
