Being introduced to golf at an early age, Dan became immediately fascinated with the golf swing and its ability to maneuver ball flight. Naming influences from too many instructors to count, Dan prides himself on a unique teaching style with a strong emphasis on helping his clients reach their goals in the most efficient manner possible.

STEVE CHUNG

Steve Keogh has been a member of the Australian PGA for 15 years and is recognized as one of the Best Young Teachers in America by Golf Digest. Steve has a love for tournament golf having played mini tours around Australia, however his interest in the golf swing and how the body works saw him focus his efforts into coaching.
 

Having had the privilege of working under some of the world’s top coaches including Jim McLean, David Leadbetter and Dr. Rob Neal, a specialist in 3D motion, Steve brings a variety of creative solutions into his arsenal to ensure his students get tailored recommendations for their golf game. Having additional certifications in fitness (TPI) and technology (Golf BioDynamics, Trackman) add to his perspective. Steve believes while there are basic fundamentals of the golf swing, every player is different in how they move. With students ranging in experience levels from complete beginners to top amateurs, juniors through to professionals, Steve will craft a program that will help you reach your goals, improve your ball-striking and lower your score.
