Golf Coaching & Instruction


Jaacob Bowden Gives a Golf Lesson
Jaacob comes from a family of teachers and having personally been a 14-handicap golfer as recent as January 2003, he can easily relate to and help golfers of all levels. From juniors to adults, women to men, old to young, Jaacob's calm and patient demeanor will make your experience a pleasurable one. And through his incredibly unique playing (Jaacob has competed successfully as a professional golfer, professional long driver, and professional speedgolfer) and teaching experience he will get you hitting longer, straighter, and more consistent shots and shooting the lower scores you have always wanted.

Although Jaacob is often associated with the Mike Austin swing, his personal teaching philosophy is that each golfer has their own best unique swing. That said, he is willing to help each golfer learn whatever style they wish, whether that is the Austin swing or another swing style.

Depending on the person and what is available at the lesson, to help the student achieve their goals Jaacob will utilize any number of things ranging from a Trackman or Flightscope launch monitor, to a video camera, or anything else that is necessary to get the job done. Jaacob takes a multi-faceted holistic approach to the game and coaching sessions with him may encompass a variety of the physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual aspects of the game. Lessons can take place indoors, on the range, on the course, in tournaments, etc.
