Welcome to my Web Site

Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Rick Silverman and I teach people to play better golf.

I will be sharing with you some golf tips and instruction. This web site is to help you understand more about golf and to help you improve your golf game.


A little about me:

I grew up in Deerfield, Illinois. Graduated from and played on the golf team at Tulsa University in Oklahoma. I have been a P.G.A. Member since 1984 and have been teaching and the Director of Instruction  with the John Jacobs' Golf Schools since 1979. I have trained well over 1000 Golf Professionals to become better teachers and to teach people to play better golf. I have seen many of the Golf Professionals I have trained go on and become ranked Top Teachers in their state or ranked Top 100 Teachers. 

I retired in 2012 and returned to the enjoyment of playing golf again.
I came out of retirement in 2020 to teach with my best friend, Hank Haney. We teach in Paradise Valley and travel worldwide to teach people to play better golf. 
I was recognized by Golf Digest Magazine as one of Arizona's Best Teachers. Ranked 15th in Arizona.

Teaching is an art, and I have been lucky to teach with many great teachers:

John Jacobs
I first met John in 1975. I have been teaching with him since 1979. John is one of the greatest teachers I know.

Hank Haney
Hank and I grew up in Deerfield together and we both attended Tulsa University. We were teammates in High School and through College. We are life long friends. Hank is ranked as one of the Top 10 Instructors.

Donald Crawley
Donald is ranked as one of the top 50 Instructors. I have known and taught with Donald since 1980. We are great friends and have taught golf together for many years.

All these individuals are the best teachers in the world. It has been a privilege to know and teach with them over the past 44 years.

I will be getting together some golf information for all of you. Please E-mail me with any questions that you might have. Thank you and I look forward to your input.
