Warren’s Thoughts:

I am different from others instructors because I’ve had many victories and many failures as a player and can relate to any and all experiences that other players will face. I have felt the emotions of walking down the 18th fairway at Pebble Beach in the U.S. Open and I’ve climbed the hill with Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus at Augusta in the Masters. All of the lessons and experiences I gained from playing tournaments all over the world for the past 30 years will help my students better understand and conquer the same lessons. I have worked with many great instructors over my years in competitive golf. When teaching moved to the forefront of my golf career, I came to the conclusion that golf is not a one method approach, every person is built and wired differently so their swings should match their assets. After many hours of work and discussions with good a friend, Tyler Kirkendoll, (who I think understands the golf swing as much as any instructor in the world) I have now created my own blueprint for successful golf. Good fundamentals, balance, speed, correct assessment, short game, wedge play, course management and of course a love for the game and its tremendous challenges. My family and I are very happy to be part of The Wigwam community. I look forward to helping everyone become a better player of the greatest challenge and game – GOLF.
