"Ross is the most patient and positive man I've ever met. He was so friendly, easy to work with and was very positive. Getting a lesson from him was like getting a boost of self-confidence for a sport I never quite understood. Golf is hard but Ross made it very easy by showing you the necessary skills to help you get into it."
