"Fred's lessons have been a game changer for me!"
"Fred is phenomenal. I came to him knowing nothing about golf. He has been patient and oh so instructive. He is truly a professional and I very much enjoy my lessons". ~ Gail K.
"Great instructor!! Fred is a fantastic instructor, he is extremely patient and has an obvious passion to help others enjoy the game of golf. After just a couple of lessons Fred has really helped me work towards improving my game by breaking down my swing and giving me easy to follow instructions for what to work on in between lessons. I'm looking forward to taking more lessons. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Fred to anyone".

Fred Hancock has been member of the PGA since 1990 and a lifelong student of the game. Fred is an award winning teacher having had success with players of all skill levels, and really enjoys working with juniors and beginners. Fred's teaching philosophy has been heavily influenced by some of the greatest golf instructors world-wide. "My instruction emphasis is that the golf motion is a swinging motion and any effort to hit the ball breaks down the proper mechanics and physics of an efficient golf swing." Two of my favorite quotes about the swinging motion are: “The golf swing is a continuous motion at the same speed” and “With the golf swing you should strive for effortless power not powerful effort”.
Great Lessons = Great Game
I know there is no shortage of teaching professionals in the area, But… allow me a few moments of your time and I’ll explain why I believe I can offer you faster results and lasting improvement than anyone!
1. I have been teaching for over 25 years and have experienced very different swings, different bodies and different personalities and have been able to deliver results for each.
2. You need a professional’s eyes to check your swing, because you can't see yourself swinging… I don't know of a single modern tour player who has made a big swing change by himself, so for the average player to go it alone will probably do more harm than good.
3. My goals as a teacher is to give you the tools to diagnose your game, prescribe treatment as needed, and monitor your progress. In other words, be self-reliant.
4. Comprehensive use of teaching aids to help you understand the tips and techniques that produce the best results for you. Confucius quote: “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”
5. My whole motivation with golf lessons is teaching golfers how to swing and how to play the game that makes golf fun.
6. As a PGA Golf Professional I have but one singular goal in mind - to make the game of golf more enjoyable for you.
7. Making each student better is at the core of my instruction. No two individuals are alike and that each student has certain areas of their games that need specific attention.
8. I keep up to date with all the latest teaching methods and regularly go to PGA Teaching Seminars with some of the best coaches in the world. Primary mentors/influences: John Jacobs, Manuel De La Torre, Jim Flick, John Topel, Leslie King and Bob Rotella.
9. I strive to simplify the golf swing and boil it down to minimal concepts/ fundamentals.
10. Learning how to swing the club as opposed to trying to “hit the ball” will be the primary focus of the full swing.
That’s about it other than I look forward to helping you with your game, for me teaching was never a job, but a life long passion.
All the Best! Fred Hancock
Hit a Pro-Style Draw
A draw – that impressive, soft right-to-left shot shape – gives you effortless power and extra control.
Statistics show 85% of club golfers move the ball with a cut(left-to-right for right-handers). On good days, it's a fade you can keep under control; on bad days, it's a slice that carves the ball OB.
The opposite shot shape – the draw – has far more in common with a truly effective swing. For a start it is a much more powerful ball flight than the cut – a draw can fly up to 60 yards further than a fade – meaning you don't have to hit the ball so hard. This is going to give you far more control. But also, where the slice comes from trying to swing in straight lines, the draw is more about rotation – a key aspect of any circular motion.
