"I’m familiar enough with the golf swing to know there is no such thing as a magic cure, yet somehow you delivered one, finding a quick change that has made a dramatic improvement. Your demeanor, approach and attitude exceeded all my expectations."

"Your passion and technical knowledge are jaw dropping…but most of all it was your genuine, patient detailed engagement during the lesson. The outcome was two distinct things to work on for my swing, plus an amazing experience. It was the highlight of my weekend."
