Anne Cain works with golfers of all ages and skill levels from around the the world. 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.Nanci Bowen, SC
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. There are times I am even outdriving my buddies and that would never happen before the lessons. The slice is a thing of the past. By having the correct swing plane, turning properly and sustaining the lag, it has all really come together. The putting lesson I had last winter also has really helped too and probably has reduced about three or four strokes from my current game. I have very few three putts now.Bob Lindheim, Ohio
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.Ella Woods, FL
After a 15 year lay-off from competitive golf, I decided to jump back in and play a few tournaments. The game had changed significantly during that time from balls to clubs and teaching methods – technology had a huge impact on every aspect of the game. I was a bit concerned as to my ability to adapt but I knew I needed one thing to remain the same – I needed Anne Cain to be part of my return. Anne always knew how to connect with me and my game and she still does. She is a technical expert but she knows how to get a “feel” player like me to make adjustments and play with those changes. The tendencies in my swing hadn’t changed over the years, but Anne was able to work with me to make some slight modifications that now enable me to get the club face square and eliminate that weak fade that was costing me significant yardage. In the past 4 years with Anne’s instruction and encouragement, I have qualified for 5 USGA Championships. From swing path to chipping and putting; from course management to equipment selection – Anne is an integral part of my team. I look forward to further refinements as I move on to the next part of my competitive career as a Senior Amateur in 2017. We’ve still, got some work to do!Tara Fleming, NJ
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. To top it off, she is an accomplished player, which affords her the ability to help golfers at all levels. Seeking Anne’s advice and help will really add enjoyment to your game.Curt Sanders, GA
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. I have found that repetition is only a positive when it is perfect repetition. Anne’s Hot Lines technology enables me to develop a repeatable and perfect feel to take to the course. For me, knowing that I am practicing the correct technique gives me confidence. Confidence is just as important as the swing. Anne’s incredible knowledge of the golf swing combined with the Hot Lines technology allows every student to fully understand what they need to do to become a better and more confident golfer.Jenna Daniels, AL
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. My instructor, Anne Cain, of the PGA Academy WGV worked with me on various adjustments, but I continued to yip. I play in a number of fundraising tournaments each year which are scramble formats. Expecting a bad shot, I would always volunteer to chip last. For the past two years, lack of a sound chipping motion contributed to my failure to break 80. Anne made a suggestion. Her approach was to adopt a setup similar to left hand-low putting. After practicing this way for the first time, my motion became more stable. I’ve seen consistent improvement and I’m chipping into the six foot circle more often which has led to good one-putt opportunities. We made the change last year. On a recent golf trip, I shot 79 for my last round, scoring 35 on my back nine. The new chipping motion helped tremendously and led to short par putts on crucial holes. I’m looking forward to improving the left-hand low motion and more sub-80, future rounds.Paul Daniels, FL
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. After hitting just a few balls and completing a video analysis, Anne provided direction for the remainder of the lesson…..ball position. We discussed Hogan’s practice of keeping the ball more forward in the stance and worked on making that happen. Upon returning home to Hilton Head, SC, I constantly reviewed the video of our lesson and worked on the range. I began hitting more fairways and greens on a consistent basis and in turn, my handicap began to drop. I’ve been able to maintain the improvement I made from Anne’s guidance and now carry a 3 handicap. I won the Senior Championship at my club (Hampton Hall Club) and continue to become more competitive in regional events. Quality instruction from top 100 teacher Anne Cain has certainly made a difference in the enjoyment I get from playing golf.Mike Clemens, Hilton Head, SC
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. She possesses a mastery of swing mechanics and technology and expertly helps her pupils understand and fell the swing fundamentals. Together we set out to address golf’s Mount Everest – the chipping yips. We developed a new technique and mental routine and I’m finally leaving behind those old, erratic movements and mental hurdles. I can actually chip again!
By far the most important thing Anne addressed was my own poor mental process. I had an inconsistent routine, weak imaging, poor self talk, and nerves. Now with my new routine my confidence, and consequently my score, have quickly improved. Swing mechanics are one thing, but playing golf is far more complex. Anne understands this and has helped me back to a place in golf I’ve not experienced in over 30 years. I now find myself smiling while playing, aging has been put on hold, and golf is fun again. Play like a kid!Rick Kern, PA
