Founder & Instructor

Jeff Ruth

Jeff Ruth offers golf lessons at Streaking Birdies. A PGA Pro, Ruth has been teaching with TRACKMAN for the past six years and brings over 25 years of teaching experience to Streaking Birdies.

Jeff has been a PGA Professional for 25+ years and has taught all levels of players at private clubs as the General Manager and Head Professional.  He has helped over 30 players achieve their goals of playing at the collegiate level and winning High School State Championships.  As great as it is to work with the advanced juniors, Jeff’s passion for teaching the FUNdamentals and incorporating TRACKMAN technology with V1 video allows him to work with all levels of players from adult beginners, juniors (ages 5 -12), ladies, and seniors.

Since teaching indoors on TRACKMAN, Jeff has noticed players are more relaxed and comfortable learning and playing the game in the indoor environment.  The ability to have over 40 data parameters and the shot projected onto to the screen instantly has allowed the golfers to identify what they truly need to work on from shot-to-shot.  Lessons now go from the practice tee to playing lessons and strategy on a golf course in seconds.  Players are getting more out of their lessons and have a much better understanding of what they need to work on when they get to the course.
