I have been working on my game with Mike going on for about eight years now, and I enthusiastically recommend his services. Whereas I think some golf coaches (as well as newsstand golf magazines) are about “quick-fixes,” Mike’s approach is 100% about the fundamentals of the swing and the proper mental approach to the game and practice. Mike has a very solid understanding and scientific approach to the mechanics of a golf swing, backed up by his own historical research as well as analysis of touring pros today. In addition to just mechanics, Mike will also work extensively with you to correct myths and misconceptions about playing the game well, all explained patiently through analogies, demonstrations, and drills – Mike is especially good at helping you to get over the “fear” of trying something new in the service of building in good habits. While not inexpensive, I do recommend Mike’s Playing Lesson service – you get 4+ hours of personal attention where it matters most: on the course.
While I wish I could claim that Mike has turned me into a scratch golfer (alas), I can report that I practice and play now more than I ever have, because of increased confidence as well as marked improvement in shot-making and scoring. Mike’s unequivocal passion for the game, combined with your own improvement that you’ll notice immediately, will have you enjoying the game more than ever as well.
