Tim Overman & Chris Dragan

The dynamics at Golf In Motion really sets it apart from other teaching facilities and offers the best environment to learn and improve your game. Our philosophy is that success is dependent on knowledge and change. We gage our success on our client’s success. During your first lesson, the swing evaluation, we take notes about your game. One of the most important note we take is the setting of a goal. We will work hard to get you to that goal and a lot of times we get our clients to far exceed their original goal.

With the combined background in biomechanics and kinesthetic learning Tim & Chris create the unique, efficient and effective teaching style that has become the solid foundation of fundamentals taught at Golf in Motion. The goal to this science-based teaching style is to blend a solid understanding of the human body’s natural range of motion and proper technique by activating specific muscles during different stages of your swing.

All levels of players from beginners, juniors to advanced level players can benefit from our method of teaching. Our approach to biomechanics and kinesthetic learning will break your bad habits, help you improve all aspects of your game, and create a safe and efficient way to play without over-complicating your golf swing.

Golf in Motion is open year-round. All indoor golf lessons are typically held one-on-one at one of our downtown, indoor golf studios. Each initial appointment in our studio includes a video swing analysis, which allows you to watch replays of your swing mechanics in real time and receive immediate feedback on ball flight statistics. In addition to the video swing analysis, our students will have access to video web lessons, which allows you to review your in-studio lessons from home so you can practice at your leisure in between lessons. We also include on course lessons in our packages. Lessons can be purchased individually or as a package. Contact us for more information on our reduced-rate packages.
