Golf Lessons From Tom Mason, PGA Professional


Tom Mason's Teaching Philosophy & Qualifications

Lessons are offered by appointment from PGA Professional, Tom Mason. Upon graduating from The University of South Carolina in May of 1993, Tom began his career in Golf. Tom has 25 years of instructional experience and has been a Class A PGA member since 1996. Tom has been very active as a Board Member of the Carolinas PGA Section and has served as Tournament Director, Vice-President, and President of the South Carolina PGA Chapter.  Tom served on the Carolinas PGA Board of Directors as the Area II Director and is also the Golf Coach for the Columbia College Koalas.  

Tom makes instruction fun and simple and preaches basic, sound, fundamentals that are necessary to execute a proper golf swing. Tom believes a proper grip, correct alignment, repeatable tempo, and a balanced set-up are the essential tools for building the foundation that helps create a solid golf swing. Each person’s swing is unique and Tom will help golfers of any age or ability improve his or her ball striking skills.    Tom will provide professional instruction on all aspects of the game from tee to green. Whether you want to learn how to hit your driver longer and straighter, zero in on more precise iron shots, or improve any part of your short game, Tom will formulate a lesson plan to help you achieve your goals. 


Video and Flightscope Technology Available

Tom uses video analysis with most lessons.  The Video, V1 Golf App is used to analyze the players swing and compare it to the swing of a PGA or LPGA Tour Professional. Tom DOES NOT teach a system – INSTEAD he uses the players physical abilities to help tailor a swing that “fits the player.” For better players and club fittings, Tom uses Flightscope Technology to achieve the best results possible.
