TOP Mental Game Coach in Sport, Business & Life, Sport Psychology, Golf Mental Training, Peak Performance Expert
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Dan Hansen for the past 4+ years. Dan is an innovative, hard-working, friendly, and highly skilled instructor, and is continually looking for opportunities to expand his knowledge base to provide his clients with excellence and results in their game. In an effort to expand his clients’ aptitude in the game, Dan has invited me to teach mental game strategies over the years, and applies these strategies in his own instruction. I have had the pleasure of working with several of Dan’s clients on mental game skills, and they rave about their experiences working with Dan. For anyone seeking top notch instruction in the game of golf I highly recommend Dan Hansen.

I have had the privilege of working alongside Dan Hansen during a Scoring Zone short game school. I found Dan to be a very knowledgeable and dedicated instructor. He is an expert in teaching putting, which is an area where many golfers could substantially lower their score.

After playing at the game of golf for several years, I finally became dedicated to improving my game. Dan has worked with me over the past two year to improve everything about my game – set-up; swing plane; follow-through; and putting. Thanks to Dan’s limitless patience, communication skills, and technical knowledge, I enjoy the game more than ever! And when I have any trouble with a part of my game (e.g., short game) we have a tune-up lesson. I highly recommend Dan if you are an newcomer to the game, or an experience golfer!

In the beginning of each season I would take a hour to an hour and a half lesson with Dan.He knows my strenghts and my physical constraints. (4 back surgeries and 3 shoulder surgeries). And every year we find a swing that allows me to play competitive golf. Dan is a excellent golf instructor who adapts his expertise to the individual’s capabilities.
There we times where I just lost my swing in mid season which is very common with amateur golfers and within 15 min. Dan saw the problem and we addressed it. Simple things like your grip , posture, open or closed stance, elbows flying. In fact because of what he has taught me I have become a much more consistent player but as important I have been able to share my knowledge and help my fellow golfers.The other strong point is that Dan Hansen is a damn good man, one who cares.

Quick analytical eye; ability to observe, discuss and, in short order, provide sensible corrective practice techniques…if you need them (Ha! Don’t we all need them). Like most recreational golfers, I’ve had a few stints with professional instruction but none clicked with me like my instruction with Dan has.
Jack McKeon Member, Shadow Wood CC
I took several lessons from Dan Hanson, when I started I was abysmal. After a series of lessons with Dan I am much more consistent and if I pay attention to my set up I play much better. Dan is a very good teacher, he doesn’t overload with info but takes it one step at a time. I am very pleased with the results of my lessons with him. I wold and have recommended Dan to friends and family as a good teaching pro.
Lynn Davenport Member, Shadow Wood CC
Dan improved my iron shots significantly in just a one hour lesson. He made just a few minor adjustments to my swing and preserved the whole experience on his website for me to access as a refresher any time I need it. He is a fantastic teacher who doesn’t try to remake your swing.
Jeanne Riley Member, Shadow Wood CC
Dan Hansen started instructing me 13 years ago when I was almost a beginner (53 years old). I took 3-5 lessons with him per year and many short sessions throughout those winter months. He took me from a 28 handicap to a 15!! I attribute my great golf success to only him. I recommend him highly!!
Larry Winston Member, Shadow Wood CC
I’ve know Dan and taken lessons from him for over 10 years and found him to be affable, and an excellent communicator. He is a pro who can really improve either your whole game or a small part of it depending on what you want him to do and his use of video teaching techniques are state of the art.
Michael Aversa Client at VIP Golf Academy
Dan is a very good listener. He truly knows all aspects of the game of golf. My goals seemed realistic and I felt he helped me reach them. I’ve had a couple lessons with Dan and would enjoy another to see what he thinks of my progress and what else he thinks I should work on.
Richard Kaplan Member, Shadow Wood CC
Not only is Dan a excellent teacher – particularly on the short game and putting, but he is a real gentleman and friend.
Mark Gaver Member, Shadow Wood CC

JoAnn Murphy Member, Wynstone Golf Club
Dan is a great instructor. Very knowledgable. He does a great job teaching to your individual strengths. Simplifies the golf swing!
Paul Cherubino Member, Shadow Wood CC
Dave Fiederlein Ft Myers, FL student
Dan did a great job getting me on track with my swing and helping me get the most out of my ability.
Larry Acorn Member, Shadow Wood CC
The lessons were to improve putting, and improve practice habits, but mainly to improve contact with irons. We worked on overcoming my “DNA” which dictated “picking” the ball vs. hitting down and through. We made some progress, but could have used many more reinforcing lessons. Dan has the patience of a saint.
Jim Pampinella Member, Shadow Wood CC
I found Dan to be an excellent communicator with the flexibility to adapt to students needs.
Barb Neidhard Member, Shadow Wood CC
Dan changed my swing with subtle changes from session to session. Easier for me to manage with a positive outcome. Thanks Dan!
Larry Hofmann, Member, Shadow Wood CC
Taking a lesson from Dan is a pleasure and very HELPFUL. He thoroughly understands the swing components and keeps the coaching to the principle of keeping it simple. Taking a lesson is one component to the swing with practice practice practice being a 2nd component.
