"Any student would be lucky to have Patrick as an instructor. His ability to teach the fundamentals of golf surpassed my expectations, but his ability to refocus negative energy to look and feel positive creates a confident, well played round of golf, which is beyond what I longed for when I met Patrick in 2014." - Jill J.
"Based from my experiences, Mr. McCarthy is a fundamentally natural teacher. He is patient, driven and intuitive of a student’s own physical capabilities with a drive to push them forward." - Doug W.

Understanding the rules of golf can be both time-consuming and confusing. This page is dedicated to explaining some of basic rules and providing an easier way to understand them.
The USGA is the governing agency for golf played in the United States. The Rules of Golf reads:
“Golf is played, for the most part, without supervision of a referee or umpire. The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players and to abide by the Rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship and all times, irrespective of how competitive they may be.”

Simply walking across a golf green covered with frost can cause damage. One foursome can leave several hundred foot prints on each green, the damage can be very extensive.
I have always felt that having fun on the golf course is why my game improved and why people, even strangers, liked having me join their groups. The 3 tips for having fun are: Be Patient, Be Positive, and Ask For Help.
Golf, like life, is not something we can master. We can only hope to improve and become a better golfer and a better person along the way. Golf and Life will be more fun If we take the time to be patient, be positive and ask for help. Smile, stand up straight, and walk down the fairways of life with confidence and the respect that you have earned and deserve.
