Dave La Fata embraces the teaching philosophy of ball flight correction through swing plane adjustment. This teaching strategy allows each student to identify and correct the flight of his or her golf ball through correct swing plane adjustments. Dave believes in hands on golf instruction. By moving each of his students through the correct positions, students will become aware of how to properly alter the shape of their swing, allowing a more consistent, repeatable ball flight. In addition, Dave believes in the positive influence of a correct pitching technique. Students will learn the benefits of a proper pitching technique and how it promotes a proper impact position.
The Golf Instruction program at Toiyabe Golf Club led by Dave La Fata offers you the unique opportunity to improve every aspect of your golf game. We offer private one-on-one instruction or group instruction as well as one and two day golf schools throughout the season.
