Hello, I'm Mark Yannotta and welcome to my site. Learn to play golf from a Golf Digest Top 10 PGA Instructor in the State of New Jersey. My approach to teaching golf is simple. I focus on these basic elements:

  • Grip: Golf begins with a good grip.
  • Clubface: Even the pros get this wrong. I will show you the proper clubface relative to the target.
  • Ball Position: Can be the difference between an uncontrollable slice or hitting dead straight.
  • Alignment: Get this wrong and everything above doesn't matter!

Why Choose Mark?

If you want to:

  • Learn the greatest game ever played - doesn't matter if you are beginner or a scratch golfer
  • Minimize your 10 swing thoughts to 1, maybe 2 thoughts
  • Have more successfull rounds of golf this year
  • Bring your game to a new level - quickly!


Have a Canadian Tour Player/PGA Class A Member, and a New Jersey US Open Sectional Winner teach you every step of the way.

Mark's teaching has been the most instrumental in helping my golf swing. I believe in following details thoroughly yet maintaining a relaxed mind, which is the key to success in any sport.
