I have been working with David and his Trackman setup for the past couple of months. As a high-handicapper, two things have been helpful – First, I no longer feel so lost as to what I am doing wrong and need to fix. Second, the Trackman has provided immediate feedback as to how the changes we are working on affect both distance and accuracy. I know these changes will not occur overnight, but do feel like I am on the right track to improvement.
I have spent my entire life helping others. It’s not just what I do, it is who I am. I spent 25 years in law enforcement and just recently retired. My passions are both teaching and golf, so I combined these to create Hearne Golf Academy. I have been in and around golf since childhood. Playing junior golf out of Cedarwood Country Club and college golf at Wingate University. My friends always told me, “David you should teach golf, you are like a golf whisperer.” So I took their advice and built Hearne Golf Academy. I am certified in Trackman Instruction and look forward to the next chapter in my life. I am truly living the dream.

About 4 months ago I was looking for another option for my son Billy to keep hitting golf balls, even though the weather was starting to get cold. I heard that Dave was in the process of opening the Hearne Golf Academy, that had the perfect option for hitting balls inside with the added technology of the Trackman. With coach Dave’s philosophy of “every shot has a purpose” ,Billy has gone from just hitting golf balls to “hitting golf shots”. The Trackman gives you the ability to instantly see your shot and coach Dave’s experience will help you make the necessary changes. Remember, ” if you keep doing what your doing, your’e going to keep getting what you have been getting”.
I have been playing golf for 20 years with no instruction. The first week, in one hour of instruction, he took 20 strokes off of my game.
He is the golf whisper and a great guy too. I have learned so much in so little time. I’m feel very fortunate to have him as my coach. I’m so proud of what he has done and how he takes his expertise and rolls it up in a little bitty pill that you can swallow every night. David is very very patient and very accommodating. You will love this place!
I am very impressed with David’s state of the art Trackman facility. I’m a visual learner. While the Trackman provides me all the data such as distance, speed and angles; it also provides me videos of my actual swing from different angles which enable me to see the flaws that affect my game. David is a great teacher who quickly identifies issues and provides solutions. Either you are looking for a quick tune up or a complete overhaul of your golf game, you can’t go wrong with David at Hearne Golf Academy.
“After having a problem with one of the most destructive and humbling misses in golf, I started looking for a coach/facility that was using the Trackman system to help identify and fix my problem. I wanted real-time, factual information about what was really happening in my swing. My first lesson with David was awesome! His facility was very nice and clean, and it was set up in a private studio-like setting. The Trackman system was very sophisticated, and included multiple high speed cameras that caught views of my swing from down-the-line and face-on. After a little warm up with the Trackman, he was able to get a few baseline numbers that told a lot about my swing. He also used the high-speed cameras to show me , in detail, a major “death move” in my backswing. Towards the end of the lesson he gave me some drills that would correct my take-away problem and get me back to playing better golf. David seems very committed to making sure his student reach their goals, and seems very knowledgeable about how to get them there! David Hearne and the Trackman make a great combination!!!”
