how can that be?
For 25 years, I have been teaching people how to play the game of golf. And…the vast majority of my students have been women. Women who were just learning the game, coming back to the game, or struggling because they never got taught properly from the start.
But here is the thing, no matter what level golfer, all of my students had two common desires:
So as a new teacher, what did I do? I tried to teach my students everything that I knew in a one hour lesson! I gave them WAY too much information. They couldn’t possibly remember everything and they were simply overwhelmed.
the over sharer
You see I have been playing golf my whole life – ok, since I was 5. My dad was a Golf Pro and to spend time with him I would go to the golf course at the crack of dawn and hang out all day. Eventually, I got pretty good, started competing and went on to play Professional Golf Tours all over the world.
So when I stopped traveling on tours and started teaching the game, I had to learn how to translate my knowledge so that beginners could comprehend it.
My students aren’t trying to play professional golf. They just want to play the game, not embarrass themselves, and have a good time. Oh! And they want it yesterday.
So I was on a mission to develop a program that would simplify the game and get my students out and playing in the least amount of steps possible.
Before I developed this course golfers would…
2. Forget what I taught them then…
3. Get advice from anyone and everyone
4. Take ONE lesson then try to figure the rest on their own ’cause…
5. Quit out of Frustration, Embarrassment, and Lack of Progress
But that wasn’t the end of it.
Now that I had this great program that really simplified the game, produced super results and quickly got students out on the course and actually playing, I had some more hurdles to overcome.
Price and Accessibility.
Private lessons with me are expensive – I get that.
And I could only offer my program to those who came to see me in person.
How was I going to make it affordable and available to everyone?
Solution: I needed to video my lessons and put it online for anyone and everyone to access. And I needed to price it much less than the $4,000 it would cost for ALL of this instruction.
ONLINE…if you want to improve or start the game you CAN – right from the comfort of your living room because the course is accessible online 24/7.
AFFORDABLE…For about the cost of a name-brand driver or a few private lessons, you can grab a membership to the ever-growing online course.
and yet there is more…
PLUS…Nearly a Dozen Printouts and Infographics that you can take with you to the golf course.
Wow! What an amazing course. I love how each lesson builds on the next. I actually think I might be able to play this game now! Thank you, thank you!
Ever feel like all your clubs go the same distance? This video explains why that happens and how you can get more distance with your different clubs.
They come in all different sizes but our boobs can get in the way. Learn how to set-up so you prevent bad habits.
We all want the ball to go toward our target and it starts with aiming properly. Learning how to aim is critical if you are interested in getting the ball in the hole!
This could be advanced for some of you but when you start to use more clubs your ball position changes. When you are ready, we need to talk about ball position and this bonus is here for you.
Sometimes it helps to have a Tour Player drive some important points home. Here you can listen to what Tour Players think about when they set-up to the golf ball. Plus this Tour Player happens to be my brother….Dudley Hart.
The Busy Business Person...you've told yourself for years that you were going to take up the game only to watch the boss invite everyone in the office BUT you to play in the company outing!
The Golf Widow...your significant other plays every weekend and takes exotic trips and you stay home or hang in the spa
The Tight Budget Grad...you want to learn but can't rationalize spending over $100 per hour for dozens of private lessons
The Experienced Golfer...you play, you like it, had limited instruction but want to get BETTER...
Great question and glad you asked! Click this link to check out my story.
With appropriate videos, I give you specific checks to make sure you are doing it all properly. I also tell you how to practice. If you follow the instructions, you will have a fantastic foundation to play great golf. I never, however, discourage private lessons if you can afford them.
Well, I am going to tell you that you need to get your Doctor’s approval for sure. After you are cleared by your Doctor, nothing I teach you should ever cause you pain or discomfort. Yet if you are uncomfortable there are a few things to consider:
If you have never played before, you have no clue what clubs to use. But, until you progress thru to the Full Swing lessons you will stay with a very short club like a sand wedge, pitching wedge or 9 iron during most of the lessons. In the Full Swing Module, I talk about moving up to longer clubs. Bottom line, you are likely to have more success with your shorter clubs for awhile.
I get asked this question all the time. Would you take medical advice from your accountant? Or legal advice from your auto mechanic? Nothing against your husband, but unless he is a golf pro and has experience teaching, I would tell you no.
Good teaching professionals have worked for years fine-tuning how best to evaluate swings and communicate the appropriate course of action. There is a huge difference between executing and communicating how to execute. Most advice you receive from an amateur, no matter how low the handicap, is likely to be his or her own medicine. So proceed with caution.
I love it! And am so glad that you are getting into the swing of things (pun intended).
I say go PLAY! Get out there and give it a try.
And, I have another course in the works to teach you HOW to PLAY with on-course instruction that you will find invaluable! Make sure you are on my email list so that you stay in the loop.
In the meantime, take what you can do and get out there and have a blast!
We offer a 30 DAY ABSOLUTELY-NO-QUESTIONS-ASKED GUARANTEE! If within the first month you really feel that this course isn’t a good fit for you, we will give your money back…no questions asked. Doesn’t get much better than that!

I can’t thank Kathy enough for not just teaching me the basics, but the special pro tricks to improve my game. I started three years ago as a brand new golfer. I didn’t even know which club to use! I attended her clinics which went through techniques/etiquette and then her private lessons to refine my swing. I have decreased my handicap by 18 strokes thanks to Kathy’s invaluable coaching. She breaks down the lesson, gives practical advice in a way that makes it fun and easy to understand. I call Kathy my golf therapist. Now if I could just fit her in my pocket when I play.
Kathy Wood offers up the fundamentals of golf with a rare combination of insight and humor that I’ve gleaned from few other instructors or coaches. As a lifelong competitive athlete who has trained in many different settings, she is a standout! Kathy crystalizes key concepts of the game and presents them in ways that have kept me learning, improving and coming back for more.
