Crowley Golf Training provides students with game assessments that help to identify areas in their games that can be improved through technique and performance training.
To avoid wasted time and expense in the frustration of having to unlearn and relearn. Often, if not most of the time, golfers start the game with incorrect concepts and techniques. As a result, forming habits that will have to be changed in the future through a long process of unlearning concepts and re-learning correctly. “The mind unlearns with difficulty what has been long in learning.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca, (4 BC – AD 65)
Crowley Golf Training offers a new paradigm in learning; a conceptual learning process with structure designed into the curriculum. This approach is based in how people learn in golf.
Crowley Golf Training does offer conceptual and technique learning in all areas of the short game. Artistry can be achieved in the short game through learning how to creatively improvise with your concept, technique, body, and instrument to meet the demands of any situation in golf. This creative approach is the means of achieving your artistry in the short game, recovery shots, approach shots, and bunker shots. This is how advanced golf is played utilizing physical and mental techniques.
Pre-shot routines can help create a consistent pattern of thought and behavior thereby creating a greater consistency in your physical performance. You have to be consistent in how you approach the ball in order to perform consistently. Ultimately, the assessment of the individual golfer will determine the appropriate approach to how you can achieve greater consistency in ball striking and in performance.
Power in golf is achieved primarily through the accuracy and efficiency in technique performance. An assessment of your technique will reveal the cause and effect that can be used to diagnosis a power where power is being lost and how to increase it.
I like to think in terms of building technique rather than correcting. Building creates necessary understandings for student technique ownership, where correction is fragmented and not part of the whole understanding. Correction requires change, building can be achieved through subtle adjustments. Often a slight adjustment to your basics: grip, stance, posture, or alignment can have a huge influence on technique. This subtle area of adjustment often creates noticeable improvement in function and performance. In golf as you well know, even a slight adjustment can feel like a different golf swing. Your level of performance will improve relative to your tolerance in building a better golf swing to achieve your goals in performance.
Often, improvement can be made in only one lesson. One lesson, will provide you with an assessment of your current technique with a cause and affect explanation in how your technique could be improved. The challenge in one lesson is the issue of habits. Students will experience success in the one lesson, but habits will not be formed or changed. Usually, additional instruction is required for students to successfully un-learn habits before re-learning can take place. On-course performance instruction is the most effective means for improvement without changing swing technique. Techniques in performance will be addressed in all areas of the game.
Crowley Golf Training does not use graphing technology in video, or for that matter, any technology in the student learning process. As Christopher Dede stated; “When you start with technology, it’s a solution looking for a problem.” Video is often used in golf instruction as a visual physical means of identifying errors in technique without identifying faulty conceptual errors as opposed to students using a structured conceptual learning process, where faulty concepts can be identified and replaced with valid concepts and understandings. Video does have a place in instruction, as a visual reinforcement of physical performance, but provides very little to a cognitive learning process responsible for the physical performance.. Your golf lesson, will be an hour of identifying faulty concepts and replacing them with valid concepts to be used in learning, training, and building correct technique.
In one lesson, Crowley Golf Training will provide you with an accurate assessment in cause and effect understandings of your technique and performance. An approach to learning and training will be offered in how to meet your goals in performance. Often, students will need additional instruction to reinforcement the lesson.
I believe methodologies impose on students as opposed to students learning how to learn to teach themselves using correct fundamental information with instructional guidance. I believe the role of instruction is to provide students with guidance in their learning process that enables them to learn and train with structured concepts as opposed to any restricted adherence to any subjective methodology. While technique is important, it should work with the student’s talent and not impose on learning through self discovery.
Faulty concepts will be identified and replaced with valid concepts and within the hour you will have a positive experience in understanding the conceptual and physical changes required in eliminating your slice. Unfortunately, it will take time and additional reinforcement to change conceptual and physical habits.

The beginning in golf can be very challenging, but with proper instruction can be a fun journey in learning. Instruction and learning information provided in the first session will help you in scheduling future sessions.
There many ways to approach the technique used in playing golf. Once I understand the physical injury or disability, I will suggest an effective approach in working with the physical condition. The golf swing technique should be functional and accommodating to our body builds with room for preferences to a certain degree. This is an opportunity to build a creative workable technique around any physical challenges.
Today’s technology and equipment is responsible for women being the largest new entries into the game of golf. Junior and senior golfers benefit as well with properly fitted equipment. A proper grip relies on the correct grip size. Based on the golfers age, strength, and technique, shafts can increase or decrease power achieved in performance. Club fitting provides specifications for the individual golfer to use in club purchases.
On-course performance lessons will help to identify areas of your game to focus on in future instruction. Please go to the menu and select Golf Lessons for additional information.
You can begin with taking a series of six lessons. This series of lessons will give me the opportunity to introduce you to learning how to learn in golf and cover all of the necessary basics in preparing and performing. Instruction will cover the main areas of the game in concepts and techniques and at this point you are prepared to learn how to play the game, but not necessarily ready for your tournament as far as playing. I believe the most important thing when you stand on the tee box and prepare to tee off, is how you are perceived as a prepared learner, not so much in how well you hit the ball, but demonstrating that you have done your homework in preparing and not just winging it. Participation is the key to corporate outings and tournaments, not necessarily how well you perform. Success in the beginning, is how well you are prepared and how well you apply yourself. Physical skill acquisition will be a process of learning and training experiences over a period of time.
Crowley Golf Training provides a structured conceptual approach to learning starting with students learning how to learn in golf.

There are many ways to swing a golf club with varying degrees of success. The only reason to pursue the so called correct approach is that it is easier to achieve greater consistency in ball striking and performance. Historically, teaching in golf has always been plagued with endless subjective opinions and methods as to the form and function of the golf swing. This represents the paradigm problem in teaching, past and present, versus, a new paradigm in learning using a defined learning process and curriculum of structured concepts. Conceptually understanding the golf swing gives students the ability to operate their body free of any external physical manipulation according to anyone’s subjective method. Your age, body, level of athleticism, and commitment should determine the best approach in how you choose to learn in golf. Methods are subjective techniques meant for you and your body to adhere to, while replacing, over-riding, or subjecting your talent and inner athlete to its form and function. Golf technique should work with your body as apposed to the body adhering to a method. Student conceptual learning in athletics, should use instructional guidance to learn physical form and function, while utilizing their talents, strengths and preferences.
A great way to introduce family members, friends, and business associates to the game of golf.

Because I now live in Virginia, and working with the Dodger’s organization, I’ve had only a few opportunities to work with Danny over the past ten years. But, if I lived in Houston, I would be a regular student. Each lesson has had a profound impact on me. In my very first lesson, Danny helped me not only with golf, but also in my career as a Major League Baseball Player. He taught me how to conceptualize my golf swing as a relaxed athlete, just as I’ve always done swinging a baseball bat. He taught me about taking a moment to absorb the results without judgement, and with measurement. I last worked with Danny a few months ago, and he quickly noticed something in my performance. Within a few minutes I added several yards to my driving distance.
Danny has not only a great understanding of the golf swing but more importantly, is able to communicate this to me in an easy to understand manner. I have played golf for over twenty five years and was able make vast improvements almost immediately. His approach of getting back to the inner athlete and building a solid foundation to build the swing around is a trait of all great instructors and coaches in any sport. As a person who has spent considerable time studying movement and swing patterns, I can appreciate Danny’s expertise and his understanding of the swing as the similarities between golf and baseball are very closely related. I have been fortunate to spend time with many great baseball swing instructors in my career and Danny’s method to teaching and getting results is as good as or better than these individuals who teach at the highest levels..
Danny has great athletic insights in the mental and physical workings of the golf swing. As an athlete and a professional golfer, I think his philosophies in athletics and golf performance have helped in changing my perceptions and understandings in what is responsible for achieving a repetitive dynamic golf swing motion that can last a lifetime.
Danny Crowley and I have been friends for many years going back to my years in Houston. Danny has the proper attitude and love of people which will enable him to become one of golf’s premier teachers.
As a teaching colleague, I have greatly appreciated your approach to teaching. First and foremost, you always showed great sensitivity to your students, with an uncanny ability to adapt to different levels of abilities and styles. At times, I would come to you discouraged about my swing and in five minutes you would fix it once again. I expect to be your student and friend for life.Thank you for what you have given to Marsha and me. It’s a priceless gift!
I would like to thank you for being a great golf coach. We played the Alliance Cup Charity Event yesterday at Memorial. I am a Director of WTGA as I try to give back to the game I love. I shot 69. My first ever. And we still have lots of improving to do. Thank you.
I just wanted to say thank you again for the lessons, you truly made my swing so much easier and gave me way more confidence. I hit my first hole in in one at the 115 yard par 3 at Mulligans Course. It felt great! I had a lesson with you at the end of December and then the second just two weekend ago. I had won 2 lessons from my company. Man, what a lucky drawing that was for me.I have already recommended a few friends to you, and will continue to do so. Your approach to teaching is very refreshing and a big difference from others. I know I don’t have the perfect grip or posture, but you didn’t even mention them and allowed me to just swing without worrying about 50 thing being identical to the pros beforehand.
Danny has a unique ability to explain most complex things about golf in most simple terms. Not only that, he does not teach just general golf-he teaches the golf that is just right for you; what will work or not work for your specific habits and physical abilities. My wife and I took several series of lessons from Danny and I would highly recommend him for anybody interested in golf-from entry level to advanced and experienced golfers.
I truly enjoyed my lesson with you yesterday, and feel that I made great strides towards understanding what was wrong with my mechanics. You are very clear and concise in your instruction, easy to understand, and I had fun while I was learning.
I look forward to my next lesson on the 17th. I also enjoyed our conversation. It is always good to find thinking folks. Thank you again, and take care.
I started playing golf twenty years ago with some ongoing physical limitations that contributed to a flawed swing with many incorrect habits. Danny has helped me to understand how to work with my limitations successfully while identifying and eliminating flawed habits. His ability to communicate understandings of the golf swing that can work for me has helped in lowering my handicap from 20 to 6 in spite of my physical limitations.
I started playing golf and taking lessons from Danny two years ago. He has a keen understanding of the golf swing and is very articulate and patient in his instruction. Danny knows my learning style and has individualized the lessons so that I understand what I am doing. He has taught me how to apply my knowledge so as to play with confidence, and I love the game.
Thanks a bunch for yesterday’s lesson! Not only for sticking with it until you found the solution, but also for encouraging me to stick with it! Your commitment to fixing my swing is very much appreciated, and I’m still smiling about the progress made int eh last 10 minutes of the lesson! When I got to my car last night, I grabbed a 5 iron and 6 more balls … I just had to see if the fix was real … And it was! High-five and kudos to your diagnostic and training skills!
