COSTANZA’S PHILOSOPHY

“I am here to help you explore and discover your ways of playing golf” 

“How many easy flat lies do you get on the golf course?”

“Give yourself the time to learn the skills, retain them, and access them in the changing contexts and different environments such as the ones we all experience on the golf course”

“If you here for a quick fix you are in the wrong place”

“Golf is a problem’s solving game and the player must become the primary problem solver”

“Excellence is never perfect. Excellence in golf is about adapting and not perfecting.”

“Golf is so much fun to play. Let’s make it fun to learn.”:)

“Progress comes from more clarity and awareness.”

“It is important to remain playful when we learn and practice.”

“The pure pleasure of learning and playing a game should be a never-ending experience” 

“No matter what it is, people play differently when they’re keeping score:)”
