Welcome to Golf Instruction with John Rogers
John Rogers started at Lakeview Golf Club (Harrisonburg, Virginia) as an Assistant Professional in 1995. He began teaching in 1996, and became a full-time Teaching Professional in 2001, building a base of clients in the Shenandoah Valley.
In 2007 he launched this website as a source of information about instruction and golf programs at Lakeview Golf Club. In 2009 John became the Director of Instruction at Lakeview and added a second website for his golf articles under the banner Golf Things Considered. This website has been expanded in 2011 to include a Tip Sheet with helpful hints and drills for golfers seeking to improve their games.
Both websites, and the time he spends daily with clients at Lakeview, are dedicated to everyone who loves the game of golf.
A Note from John
It has been a mild winter so far here in the Valley, so I hope you have been able to get outside and enjoy some golf!
I have been staying busy with the start of the 10th season of my junior group, the Tournament Players’ Series; and my Fit to a Tee winter program has started at the RMH Wellness Center — we’ve got some very motivated participants who will work hard from January-March on their level of fitness as well as their golf swings. There’s still room if you want to join us!
If you missed it, please check out my annual holiday card/newsletter. It has some stories from 2011, a review of local junior golfers, and for the first time a photo gallery of shots from the year. I will also honor the holiday specials until the end of January.
As spring gets closer, I am looking forward to the annual trip and tournament I run for members in Pinehurst, NC (photo from Foxfire at left). I might even have to try to sneak down there for a little warm-up before the big March event!
When you are ready for a spring tune-up, please come out to Lakeview and let me show you the advantages of my new high-speed camera and analysis software when you are making swing changes.
Until then, we’ll hope that the winter remains mild, and I hope to see you around the golf course! -- John
