Teaching Philosophy

“The sole purpose of the golf swing is to produce a correct repetitive impact. The method employed is of no significance as long as it is correct and repetitive.” - John Jacobs

More than a name, P.U.R.E. stands for the main points in the teaching philosophy used by PGA professional Stephen Puryear. P.U.R.E. stands for:

  • Principles
  • Understanding
  • Repetition
  • Excellence


Missed shots are a result of a golf swing where the bottom of the arc produces an impact that was either too wide and too shallow, or too narrow and too steep.


The key to correcting mistakes when swinging is understanding the principles and tendencies for each individual. Through ball flight, sound, video, launch monitors, divots, and impact location, players can begin to understand what type of mistake they are making and take the steps necessary to correct it.


To make a change last, it is important that students practice with tools that help them make the swing change quickly and permanently. Learning aids, drills, exercises, and different swing thoughts are all part of this process.


Each person’s goals are different. One person might be striving to regain previous form while others might be looking to take their game to a new level. It’s important to define these goals and measure performance accordingly.
