Based on your goals, an instruction program is designed to maximize your time with Anne and improve your game.
Below are a few of the stories and endorsements of Anne by her students.
Anne is an extremely knowledgeable instructor. She continues to educate herself in the latest technology which helps her students improve their games rapidly. She has the capacity to identify each student’s abilities and goals instantly – thus establishing a practice plan quickly. Anne also knows how to keep the information simple and manageable. Anne has been an integral part of my success on the LPGA TOUR. During a tournament she gave me instruction over the phone that vastly improved my chipping technique which lead me to winning a major championship, the Nabisco Dinah Shore Championship. Without question her determination and tenacity in getting results for her students is why she is a Top 100 Teacher.
“I have been taking lessons from Anne for about a year and a half and she has helped me significantly improve my golf game and my understanding of my golf swing. In my 40 years of playing golf and taking lessons with multiple instructors and schools, Anne is by far the best teacher I have ever worked with.
I am a 68 year old golfer with a low handicap, but it had risen to a 6 and was getting worse every month. I had developed a tendency to shank my short irons and nobody I consulted could show me the underlying problem. Anne was able to quickly show me the cause and the correction. She also helped me straighten out my drives that always tended to go to the left. Her greatest strength is that she does not try to mold her students into a predetermined “system” or “model”. She works with each individual to identify strengths and weaknesses and addresses those specifically.
She has helped me with all phases of the game: from club fitting, to fitness, and the mental challenges of playing in competition. I just won my latest tournament on the Golf Channel Amateur Tour and I am ranked 5th for 2019 on Golfweek’s National ranking for Super Seniors.
“I began working with Anne my junior year of high school when I desperately needed help with my game. I was a highly ranked junior, but my scores kept getting worse in tournaments and I was feeling pressure that this might affect my college prospects and opportunities. I met with Anne and we created a plan and set goals, before she even looked at my swing. I could tell that she cared about me as a person and wanted to help me succeed in all areas of my life. This really helped me buy into the plan and trust her guidance.
Previous instructors just looked at my swing and commented on my flaws and faults. Anne uses a great deal of technology and this helped me understand my swing and ball flight tendencies. She also is knowledgeable with club fitting and helped me make some changes in my equipment. I especially like the amount of time that Anne watches me on the golf course. She not only helps me with swing technique, but helps me use very specific mental routines that control negative thoughts on the course. I am now a junior playing on scholarship for The University of Florida Women’s golf team and we are ranked #7 in the country.
“I have known Anne for 30 years and she has been my instructor during my professional career on the LPGA TOUR and again after I was reinstated as an amateur. As a result of our partnership, I have achieved considerable success:
- I was a semi-finalist in the 2017 USGA Senior Women’s Amateur, and qualified for the event in 2018 and 2019
- I was have qualified multiple times for the USGA Women’s Four Ball Championship
- I won the 2019 New Jersey Women’s Senior Amateur and was named the New Jersey Golf Association Player of the Year in 2016 and 2017
Although I am in NJ and Anne is in FL, I trust my game to no one else. She has supported the evolution of my game with not only swing refinement, but with equipment evaluation, and on course strategies and adaptation as I have aged. I have recommended Anne to many of my friends and competitors and she has impressed and helped all of them.”
Through Anne’s guidance, my handicap has dropped from an 18 to a 6/ 7. Recently, I carded a 74, and for the first time, I believe a sub-par round is within reach!
As much I hate to admit it, I have to be part of “the senior player who added 20 yards” to his game. If you remember, I came limping to you whining about a bad back and how it has caused a significant loss of distance over the last several years.
My handicap before I started taking lessons with you was probably about a 25. I my current handicap is 20.7 and I can honestly say, and my golf buddies would attest to it, that by having three series of lessons with you, my drives are now going at least 40 yards further and straighter.
Anne has exceptional knowledge of the golf game in its entirety. She is a great communicator and teacher and, with her video/computer technology, is able to instruct and “show” the student exactly what changes need to be made in the swing.
Anne, I have taken many lessons and some of them from great teaching pros such as Rick Smith and David Leadbetter in recent years but the band-aid remedies never lasted that long and I would be searching again for something else.
Being Anne’s student has made me grow so much as a golfer and as a person. When I first came to her I was consistently shooting in the mid 80’s even though I had the potential to do so much better. We worked hard to fix some things in my swing and my short game also really improved. Anne has helped me understand my golf swing and my tendencies better so I can make quick fixes while I’m playing. There were many days where she would stay late so she could help me after school and early in the morning in when it was freezing, but she was always willing and eager to teach me. As I became more comfortable with the changes we made I started to play in more tournaments, and slowly but surely my scores improved. Even when I had a bad round or a small setback she would always reassure me that it was part of the journey to success. Within 7 months of working with Anne I went from shooting mid 80’s to consistently shooting mid 70’s and I qualified for the US Girls Junior. With Anne as my coach I know my golf game will continue to improve and I am well on my way to reaching my goals.
Anne is a consummate professional who conducted a private two day, 3 on 1 clinic (at a course in North Carolina, to which she enthusiastically traveled) with an approach that I can only describe as game-changing, at least to my golf game. Up until meeting Anne, I was a 30+ handicap golfer with an unpredictable drive that traveled 150 yards on a good day. After my two full days with Anne, I am so consistent with my driver (now 200 yards, center of the fairway every time) that a recent playing partner suggested I just go up and drop the ball on every par 4 at the 150 marker in the middle – since that where I landed each time.
I am fortunate to take golf lessons from Anne Cain. She has a thorough understanding of the game and its fundamentals, and communicates her message clearly and concisely. Her knowledge of the learning process helps me focus on one thing at a time, and her use of video technology takes the guesswork out of learning the swing.
One of the most valuable lessons that I have learned from Anne is that 8 hours of beating balls does not compare to 1 hour of perfect practice. I found myself working extremely hard on my golf game but with little idea of what I really wanted to accomplish with my golf swing.
Over the past few years, I developed the yips when chipping. It seemed that my right hand was dominant in my chipping motion, but I had less and less control over the right hand / wrist as time went on.
I was a 60+ year old with a 6 handicap still looking to improve enough to be competitive in State and regional senior tournaments. I scheduled a lesson with Anne at The World Golf Village. After finding out that she had once been a student of a friend of mine, we went to work.
When I came to you in January, I believe I had a 28 handicap index, and I chronically sliced most of my tee shots. Following my 3 days with you, my handicap index dropped as low as 18 recently and now hovers in the high teens, so that’s an improvement of about 30% in the 6 months since I’ve been working on what you taught me.
At age 65, with back issues, single digit handicap golf was becoming a thing from the past. At the thought of a “comeback”, I could almost hear the laughter from my golfing buddies. My comeback, simply put, would not have been possible without Anne Cain.
