YOUR golf swing



Rick Silva, PGA

Respected as a leader in innovation and technology. Precision. Passion. Quality.

Rick's mission is to make his clients' golf experiences more memorable. To achieve this, Rick bridges the gap between theoretical golf instruction and factual science-driven information. All the while delivering information simplistically to clients and audiences of all ages and skill-sets.

Rick developed the Movement3 golf philosophy over the course of a 20+ year teaching career. Rick was one of the first golf instructors in America to utilize 3D-technology and biomechanics to disprove many myths about the golf swing.

Rick has worked with hundreds of golfers, including PGA touring professionals, a U.S. Amateur Champion, a Walker Cup team member, and dozens of NCAA Golfers. Before he created Movement3 in 2010, Rick was the Director of Instruction for Discovery Land Co. private resort communities. 

Rick is a class A PGA Professional with continuing education certifications in Jacobs 3D, TPI, NG|360, Golf Bio-Mechanics, and is Manzella Certified.

jacobs 3d

Jacobs 3D is the first golf pro commissioned software to measure the forces that go into hitting a golf ball. It is expanding our understanding of exactly what, how, and when the most important elements of the swing happen. Instead of “waiting” to see kinematic results, Jacobs 3D is giving us a look at what is happening earlier in the chain of events. Having access to this information will transform how teachers and researchers study the golf swing—and provide a much clearer, quicker path for the average player to improve…



THE ULTIMATE GAME CHANGER. The GCQuad. The game's most advanced launch monitor.

Gears analyzes over 600 images per swing, in less than a second. Because both the grip and head are tracked, that data provides significant insight into a swing, even including shaft deflection—information that cannot be obtained by tracking the grip alone.

Getting put through the paces by Rick Silva and his staff wasn’t so much a golf lesson as it was an EKG that told you very clearly what you need to work on to improve your game. As a writer for GOLF WEEK, I have been to every “big name” expert on the planet and one thing is for sure, Rick is a big player in a very small pond.

From the moment we started working together my game improved. I had given up on gaining speed when a came to see you. I now swing it 8mph faster and hit it further and straighter then I ever have. Your ability to take complicated information and make it easy to understand has been huge! The combination of distance and accuracy at this stage in life has allowed me to win again and compete at a high level in the US Mid-Am two years in a row. Thank you!

Just finished an AMAZING golf lesson with Rick Silva. Mind blown! The BEST golf lesson I’ve ever taken. So psyched to get some practice in and start playing better. So much to learn from GEARS and a teacher who truly understands the data.
