Joey and Skip Marini

My name is Skip Marini, I am the first Assistant Golf Professional at Mohansic Golf Course in Yorktown Heights, NY.   I have been teaching golf lessons at Mohansic since 2007 and started my professional career at Kutshers Resort in Monticello 2005.

My method of teaching golf is simple; I take what the student is capable of doing and enhance the mechanics of the golf swing without trying to manufacture text book philosophy.

There are many golf instructors that insist on teaching what the books say and force the student to emulate the perfect golf swing, however, what they fail to realize is that every person has different degrees of learning perception, flexibility, strengths and weaknesses, not to mention different body shapes and masses. Perhaps injuries, arthritis, calcium deposits etc… and other factors have taken their toll on the body preventing you form making the perfect golf swing. I take what your body will give me mentally and physically and then make it better. This is why my success rate is very high in improving your golf swing and what works for you and ultimately seeing the results on you scorecard.

If you are a true beginner, you will benefit even more than a golfer who has 20 years of bad habits in their swing. My true passion is working with junior golf and developing their skills so that they will have this wonderful game to play for a lifetime.
