Tony Schwartz

Tony Schwartz

My name is Tony Schwartz, my goal is to provide the highest quality instruction. I teach to each student based on his or her learning style, physical abilities and personal objectives. I am a PGA Apprentice and have been playing golf for more than 30 years and teaching golf for over ten.  As Director of Golf at WildHawk I have had the chance to inspire and instruct some of the top players in the area. With years of playing and teaching experience I bring a wealth of knowledge about the golf swing and the game of golf to each lesson. Some of my former and current students have gone on to receive college scholarships or played professionally. 

I have a great sense of satisfaction helping my students attain their goals, whether that goal is to lower their score or handicap, to play professionally or just to learn the game.

As one of my students you don't just receive a golf lesson, you receive a personalized instruction plan that takes your current playing level, personal objectives, physical attributes and learning style into consideration.

Steve Strong 

Ever since I could walk, there has been a golf club in my hand.  With over 30 years of playing experience I have seen many different swings from beginner to professional.  I have officially been teaching for the past 5 years, but I have helped people out with their game since I was in high school.  I have a passion for helping people improve and identifying areas to work on.  Each swing is unique to the person holding the golf club.  We will keep it simple, have you hitting better golf shots and enjoying the game.  There is no “correct” way to swing the golf club; however, there are basic fundamentals and principles all great players follow.  Remember “the most important shot is the next one!” Video Analysis and Launch Monitor avaliable by request
