DON’T WASTE YOUR VALUABLE PRACTICE TIME.
"Practice – Just hitting balls is not practice. Practice should be performed with a goal in mind."
- Manuel de la Torre from Understanding the Golf Swing.
"Golf can make your life better in the areas of physical health, mental training, as well as, social and business relationships."
- John Hayes
"Experiments have found that situations in which people are forced to adapt and attune themselves to new challenges … tend to increase cognitive reserve. One study showed that elderly people who pursued more leisure activities had a 38% lower risk of developing dementia."
- Daniel Coyle from The Talent Code
"Your game-improvement program should include practicing and understanding sound principles, a short game test* and practice routines, course management plans and fun. I have had hundreds of average golfers in my season-long program and every year for 14 years the group handicap has gone down."
- John Hayes
A portion of the golf lesson fee goes to the Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation.

JOHN HAYES, the award-winning PGA Teaching Pro at Chi Chi Golf Range & Family Sports Complex, moved to the Tampa area in 2012 to be able to teach golf year-round. He has learned to teach from the legendary PGA Hall of Famer, Manuel de la Torre (October 6, 1921 – April 24, 2016). “The first time I saw Manuel teach golf, three things happened: 1) the student hit better shots right away, 2) he or she clearly understood what needed to be done and why and 3) the student left the lesson excited with the realiztion – I can really do this!” You will understand the motion of the club and what must be done to produce good shots,” said John Hayes. Go to: www.manueldelatorregolfteaching.com for more info on Manuel de la Torre.
JOHN HAYES has been serious for over 25 years about teaching golf and so he has spent over 100 days learning from and watching Manuel de la Torre teach all level of golfers, from major champions to brand new players. He has also learned things from several other top-notch instructors, all of this PRACTICAL knowledge will help you practice smart and get the most out of your game. John Hayes also excels at an interesting category of golfer, THE ADULT WHO IS NEW TO GOLF!
Don’t waste your valuable practice time – get a plan! Understand the correct fundamentals and build a swing based on sound GEOMETRY and PHYSICS PRINCIPLES that do not change. Any swing problems must have the correct diagnosis to be solved. One of the tenets of Manuel’s teaching is that the student should not be asked to do something that can be overdone. You don’t want to try something now that can get you in trouble down the road. THE MORE YOU DO IT – THE BETTER YOU SHOULD SWING! Lessons must be CUSTOMIZED for the individual and I want to be part of YOUR TEAM to help you play better golf. The lessons are done on good quality turf with quality range balls. Don’t worry about the summer heat as we have the option to do the lesson under a sun cover with a fan on a top quality Fiberbuilt range mat!

Manuel de la Torre mentioned in a Moe Norman YouTube Video
Check out the YouTube video entitled “Moe Norman Private Clinic ball striking exhibition 2001.” Moe says, “I’m swinging the whole club. My arms are swinging the WHOLE club.” Someone asked Moe, “Where did you get this from?” Moe responded, “Manuel de la Torre, one of the best in the world ever. Him and Ernest Jones.” It is a long video (1:04:57) but go to times 2:32, 3:53, 8:04, 8:17, 14:20, 21:09, 27:24, 30:45 and 36:58 if you want to skip around and hear where Moe mentions Manuel de la Torre, his concept and reading his book! Sometimes this video has been unavailable recently except on sites that charge money.
