What's the biggest difference between highly skilled golfers and average golfers? Contact and direction consistency.
Brian has studied thousands of golf swings. He has also studied under several top instructors. In Brian's studies he has observed many variables amongst great players and only a few common denominators. Brian takes the information and relates it to the student in front of him in order to get the most out of that student.
Brian diagnoses a golfers swing from impact backwards and teaches his students to do the same. The conditions in which the club arrives at impact determine the contact, start direction of the ball, and curvature of the ball. This allows the student to make the fewest changes possible while achieving the maximum results.
The most critical point of the golf swing is impact. Is the club face squaring consistently on a consistent path and is the swings low point in front of the ball? The answer to this question will determine whether you have contact and direction consistency. There are a few ways to arrive at impact consistently. Brian's belief is that the most consistent way to arrive into impact is by having the arms and body fully connected. Allowing the pivot of the body to be the engine of the golf swing. This allows for less moving parts and less timing. This also allows the club face to square automatically by the bigger muscles of the body. As opposed to the club face squaring by the hands and the fast twitch muscles of the body. Bigger muscles squaring the club face equals more control, smaller muscles squaring the club face equals less control.
Brian took up the game of golf at the age of 18. He was introduced to instruction by Jim Neely, a well respected professional in Brian's home town of Spring Hill, Florida. Brian took weekly lessons for several years and as he started to shoot scores around par, he became fascinated with the golf swing. He researched and read everything and anything on the golf swing. It became clear to Brian that his true passion was golf instruction more than playing. This influenced him to pursue a career in the golf industry. Brian relocated to Dallas, Texas to begin his career. While in Texas, his relentless pursuit of learning the golf swing and all the many teaching methodologies continued. During this time Brian worked with many influential people in the golf industry, learned many philosophies, experimented with several swing techniques, and this helped develop his teaching career. In 2009, Brian started teaching full time. In just over 5 years, Brian has already given over 10,000 golf lessons. He has had the great pleasure to spend time with several top instructors and at facilities such as:

"I just wanted to take the opportunity to let everyone what a tremendous experience I have had over the last 18 months. Special thanks and enormous gratitude go to my teacher Brian Bolcar. It's difficult being left handed and finding golf clubs, let alone a left handed teacher.
I first came to Brian in January of 2012. At that time I was struggling with every facet of my game with the exception of putting. We tore the swing apart and started from scratch. While re-building the move became unbearably frustrating at times, to the point I thought about quitting altogether, Brian wouldn't allow it and always found some positive from our time together.
When I started, I was approximately a 15 handicap. Sometimes a little higher, sometimes a little lower but, could never put that special round together. Since working with Brian, I have dropped to a 5, moved back a tee box and......am in the neighborhood of 40 yards longer off the tee!!
I will be forever grateful for the instruction, practice routines and belief that Brian had in me."
"My name is Evan Schechter. I have been taking lessons with you guys for about a year now. When I came in I could barely get the ball off the ground. With the help of Brian Bolcar I am now able to play around 100 but more importantly I can enjoy a round of golf with my friends. I have really enjoyed the lessons from Brian as he and myself are both left handed and it is difficult to find a left handed instructor. I hope to continue to improve on my game which wouldn’t have been possible without Brian's help."
"Brian Bolcar was the first instructor who was able to successfully help me improve my backswing positions dramatically, after years of trying. With his instruction I was able to reach my former lower handicap. levels that I hadn't seen in years. I also notched my first club championship at the senior level. I now have a better understanding of my swing and how to make my own corrections. I would wholeheartedly refer anyone to seek lessons from Brian if they are serious about improvement. "
