Golf instruction: How you can improve your game (or get started properly)


GTA Construction Report special feature

Can you improve your golf game without struggling with wasted time and ineffective instruction and – if you are just getting started – is there a way to ensure you will succeed at the sport?

Dave Hartmann and Andre Gillezeau believe their Power Lesson system can provide these answers, either in private lessons, through organized events either on the golf course, driving range or smartphone consultations.

Hartmann, who has taught golfing skills at dozens of PGA Tour corporate events, can help golfers focus on what they need to improve, says his colleague Andre Gillezeau.

While Hartmann provides instruction at the professional level, he also provides guidance at portable training sessions at various events, including the Canadian Association of Women In Construction’s (CAWIC)’s GTA golf tournament.

“Dave and I worked together for five months to get me ready for outdoor golf season,” said Holly Liddell, managing partner at Wiklem Design in Toronto, in a video testimonial. She said her biggest problem was her drive. “I won a longest drive competition,” she said.  “My progress has been immense . . . I’ve increased my goals and the things I want to achieve.”

“Hundreds of people have improved their game,” said Gillezeau, who co-ordinates the Power Lesson marketing and won this editorial profile as a CAWIC tournament prize.


His advice for new golfers:  “When you are a beginner, it is very critical to get private instruction and don’t go for clinics… they don’t work.”

Instead, with some highly focused private instruction, you’ll learn how to “make contact with the ball… One-on-one attention; its critical with golf so you can enjoy the game.”

Individual Power Lesson instruction prices range from $89.95 per lesson, which includes a half-hour of private instruction and another half hour of practice.  You can also receive semi-private instruction (two people maximum) with David Hartman on a golf course for nine holes, at $180 per person.


Power Lesson also has introduced a system where you can (with a colleague) take a video with your smartphoneof your swing, and receive a comprehensive video analysis by email.
