Uncomplicated Golf Schools

Dennis Murray's students call him "Coach," as his UNCOMPLICATED GOLF Schools philosophy has been helping them PLAY BETTER GOLF for many years. As a player, instructor, and researcher in the fields of Sports Psychology, Motor Skill Learning, and Kinesiology, Coach Murray has a lot to offer.

Gleaning wisdom and theory from mentor and Ryder Cup Player Stewart "Skip" Alexander, as well as Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Johnny Miller, was a blessing during Murrays competitive years. He broadened his knowledge working with Hall of Fame instructors Jim Flick, and Eddie Merrins, as well as colleagues such as Jim McLean, Bob Rotella, and Hank Haney, as a faculty member of the PGA Education Department and host of Playing/Teaching Workshops.

Notable students include Yuvish Singh, Canada's # 1 Ranked 12 year-old golfer. Dennis currently coaches Gary Hallberg on the Champions Tour, and has worked with many tour players including the late Payne Stewart, Kevin Stadler, J.L. Lewis, Jerry Pate, Fred Funk, Dick Mast, Dan Forsman, Jonathan Kaye, Dave Stockton and Ben Crenshaw. Famous students include Michael Jordan, Don Zimmer, Ken Griffey, John Smoltz, Vin Scully, NFL great Y.A. Tittle.

Murray competed on the PGA Tour, was Player of the Year earlier in his career garnering wins in the Rocky Mountain Open, Rocky Mountain Section PGA, Southern Nevada PGA, and twice winning the Colorado Open Marathon.  Dennis won the Senior Wyoming Open and was ranked #1 Senior Player of Colorado Section PGA in 2002.  "Coach" holds many course records that still stand, with scores as low as 62 at Denver Country Club, the oldest private club west of the Mississippi.

Testimonies & Quotes

"When I started playing golf as a junior golfer, I took lessons from Dennis Murray every week at Denver CC for one summer and continued seeing him regularly for several years after he became the Teaching Professional at Columbine CC. My golf game improved tremendously while I worked with Dennis and I benefited not only from his expert knowledge of the golf swing and the game itself, but also from the inspiration and motivation that he provided. Dennis is a gifted teacher with an uncommon combination of expert knowledge and the down-to-earth manner and communication skills to get through to his students."
-Ed Mate, Excecutive Director, Colorado Golf Association

"At first, golf was more frustrating than fun - didn't know if I'd hit the ball really good or even hit it all, aggravating indeed. Too many swing thoughts, none of them worked more than once, a helpless feeling.  Everyone had the answer, they thought, but not for my left-handed golf swing.  Fortunately, Dennis Murray came along at the right time and saved my fledgling golf game trying to take flight.  While playing a round of golf with Dennis and realizing his insights were extraordinary, I hired him to teach me how to play the game.  We did golf in the daytime, music at night and had a great time.  He made the learning fun and simplified the process. Thanks to Dennis Murray, I'm addicted to golf."
-Glenn Frey, Singer, Musician, Eagles Band, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

"Dennis Murray is the best golf coach I've had in more than fifty years as a golfer."
-Don Zimmer, Major League Baseball

"Dennis Murray is a wonderful Golf Professional who is personable and skillful as an instructor.  Dennis helped me work on my golf swing for a full week back in the 80's when I was still playing the PGA Tour.  His instruction was great and helped my game very much."
-Jerry Pate, U.S. Open Champion, Member of PGA Champions Tour
