Peter Collins is a PGA professional from Danvers, MA. With stops as the Head Professional at Wenham Country Club, Teaching Professional at Bass Rocks Golf Club and Ferncroft Country Club, and most recently as a lead instructor at the Nike Golf Camps at Beverly Golf and Tennis and Dilisio Golf Range, Peter has honed his teaching techniques over a span of 17 years. In his own words, “My true love is teaching the game, to which I devoted myself completely in the summer of 2008. My experience ranges from extensive work with beginners to advising some of the most accomplished state level amateurs. I am most proud of my work with women and juniors and have built a reputation on the North Shore as one of the leaders in this area. I take a principle based approach to instruction, allowing for the individual differences and preferences each student brings with them to the lesson tee. Finally, I strengthen the mental game at all times, because without that, golf is far less enjoyable.”
The six week program will focus on all areas of the game from full swing to pitching, chipping and putting.
The fundamentals of setup, swing mechanics, balance and tempo will be emphasized weekly. Tips on managing self talk and the mental aspects of the game will be highlighted and might even involve a little course management strategy. Finally, golf is more fun when players know the rules so a rules discussion will be incorporated into break times.
