I’m PGA Golf Professional, Alex Smith. I have been teaching golf for over 20 years to players of all abilities. I also am a sales representative in the golf industry. I represent various companies and sell to golf professionals and clubs throughout Upstate New York. Prior to a career in golf sales, I was the Head Golf Professional for 14 years at Beaver Meadows Golf Club in Phoenix, New York. I am a graduate of Mississippi State University (1996) and my hometown is Barneveld, New York.
My teaching philosophy is simple, “better fundamentals lead to better golf”. From the true beginner to the club champ, a clear understanding of the proper mechanics will lead to improvement. This philosophy has helped my many students achieve their goals.
Practicing these principles myself has lead to 12 career local PGA professional victories including the 2012 CNYPGA Players Championship.
The best players in the world have instructors, why shouldn’t you?
