Welcome To My Website!

My name is Andy Gaither. I have been teaching golf for over 25 years and love what I do. I enjoy seeing students get better. In my personal quest to understand the golf swing, I have worked with some of the world's greatest teachers. I know what works and what doesn't. I look forward to helping you with your golf game.

I use the JC Video Laptop System with my students that enable me to provide instant evaluation of your swing and recommendations to improve both your swing and your game.
