Brian Titus is in his third year at Mountain View and is a golf instructor certified both as an associate member of the U.S. Golf Teachers Federation and as a golf coach by U.S. Kid’s Golf. In addition to over 50 years of golfing experience, Brian holds a Master’s degree in Education from the University of New Hampshire and brings decades of experience teaching both adults and children in a range of subject areas, as well as coaching youth sports teams. His approach to golf coaching draws on this training and experience and is based on the simple premise that successful coaching is a holistic developmental process that recognizes that everyone is different. The coach’s role is to guide players in identifying their golfing strengths and weaknesses, working with them to create a comprehensive, individualized and results-based plan, centered on purposeful practice, that addresses specific areas for improvement.
Our mission is to help players reach their golfing potential and enjoy every step in this journey.
For many of us, golf is a fixture in our lives. We carry its memories over decades, from generation to generation. To honor those who came before us and to provide a future experience like no other, Mountain View Country Club has launched “In a Company of Players”, an exciting new player development program.
We aim to show players how to simplify the game, reduce stress and lower scores – usually without significant swing changes. We will help them discover their game while learning on the golf course and through purposeful practice.
The difference between Instruction and Coaching
Instruction is a “one size fits all” approach. The instructor tells the player what to do and how to do it.
Coaching operates with the understanding that everyone is different. Coaching is a holistic developmental process. A coach’s role is to guide players to identify their strengths and weaknesses using a comprehensive, results-based plan.
Lessons that blend modern coaching with swing technique
Because traditional one-hour lessons can feel long and overwhelming, or too short to really accomplish your goals, we believe in a modern coaching solution. We offer lessons that include both how to swing, as well as how to play, and players accustomed to traditional one-hour private swing lessons will be amazed at how much more they will learn in this format, and how much easier it is to see progress on the course.
Open-ended questions and active listening to elicit player objectives
Encouraging an outcome focus
Fostering engagement with goals
Providing support on the development journey
Giving constructive feedback
