Justin Hicks PGA

Hi, my name is Justin Hicks. I am a member of the PGA of America and have been teaching golf instruction at Stadium Golf Center in San Diego for the last 22 years.
Stadium is the premier practice facility in San Diego comprising of 72 hitting stalls, a 10,000 sq. foot putting green, private short game area, brand new range balls (every 90 days), full service pro shop, and two award winning club fitters who can help you with all your equipment needs.
My teaching station is very private to ensure that the student has the ideal environment to improve their golf game. I have been giving golf instruction in San Diego for 22 years and currently use JC Video Software for all my golf swing analysis.  I also send a voice over file with each student that recaps the golf lesson to ensure that the student knows exactly what to work on.
I enjoy working with students of all levels and take great satisfaction in seeing my students improve. I look forward to meeting you and having an opportunity to help you with your game. Read more about my golf instruction programs and services.

My Teaching Philosophy

“The flight of the ball tells all.”

Whenever I watch any golfer hit balls, the first thing I look at is the flight of the ball. Is the ball curving from right to left, left to right, or is it pretty straight? Does the trajectory tend to be low, medium, or high?  Does the ball flight change as the clubs get longer or shorter? The second thing I look for in the ball flight is how repeatable it is. Does one shot tend to curve 20 yards to the right and the next one 50 yards to the left?  The flight of the ball is telling me everything that is happening at the point of impact- where the club head meets the ball.

Based on your current ball flight and desired ball flight, factoring in your goals, athletic ability, injuries, time available to practice and play, etc… we will determine what improvements  and what components that need to be  made for you to find the golf swing that is best for you.  My ability to effectively  communicate to the  student why the ball is doing what it is and what needs to be done to improve it in a way that is  easy to understand and comprehend  is the reason why my  students improve as much as they  do.  Once they know what to work on and can get accurate feedback that they are making the desired changes, results will follow and more importantly,  they will begin to be able to coach  themselves.
