Michael Hebron is not only the Director of Golf at Smithtown Landing County Club, he's a PGA Master Teaching Professional as well as a member of the PGA Professional Hall of Fame.

There are a lot of different approaches to teaching the golf swing and Michael's method is worth giving consideration. Enjoy and thank you for the support.
