My name is Jey Bacani, PGA teaching professional. I teach at the Hodges Golf Learning Center. I have been helping golfers improve their golf swing for over 17 years. It is my passion to teach the game of golf to anyone who is seeking help with their golfing skills. My strengths as a teacher are my patience, and my ability to communicate and effectively relate to a wide range of individuals and experience levels. My philosophy of “keeping it simple” teaching style puts my students at ease and creates an open and trusting learning environment. I have extensive experience with teaching new & experienced golfers, junior golfers, women, and competitive golfers.
My teaching philosophy begins with solid fundamentals (P.G.A. -Posture, Grip, Alignment). Proper ball contact is also of utmost importance in my philosophy. Without it, direction and distance means nothing. Generally speaking, I am more concerned with what the body is doing and how the body movements are affecting the arms and hands and not the other way around. Tempo, connection and swinging in balance are essential for good ball striking. It is important for me to understand my student’s goals and to assess their level of commitment in order to achieve those goals.
This is a text message from a student two days after his first golf lesson with me: Student: "I know ur home with the fam but I shot even par at my place this afternoon" Me: "Thats awesome! Is that your lowest round?" Student: "Yes...71!" Me: "We'll get you shootin sub-par in no time" Student: "That would be awesome!"
Jey, had to let you know that Drew shot a 78 today at RB Inn! He shot a 40 on the front, had to par the last 3 holes for 79 and ended up par, par, and chipping in for birdie on 18 for a 78. You have helped him so mucch in the short time we have worked together and we can't thank you enough for your great coaching. He also went undefeated in his middle school golf league (5-0 in match play) and had the lowest 9 hole score, a 32 (par 30).
Golf Channel Am Tour Pala Plays Tough on Windy Day Fallbrook, CA--The Golf Channel Amateur Tour held the 3rd official event of the 2010 season on Sunday at Pala Mesa Resort. A short, demanding layout, Pala held its own on a windy and cool day. Pace of play continues to be outstanding on the SD Tour, with rounds in the 4 hour 15 minute to 4 hour 30 minute range. Thank you to each Tour Player who helped make this possible...
An email sent from one friend to another friend: Jamal, I have copied Jey Bacani on this message so you have his email. He is the man. Jey has incredible golf knowledge and has the heart of a teacher. He is Sage's instructor and God willing he will be Taj's too. (I might have to get on a program too, based on the way things are progressing with Sage! ) I recommend Jey without any reservation.
