    If you don't take a lesson or several from Mike you have done yourself a major disservice. Easy to listen to and understand and know what to look for quickly to make improvements for your style. Great Teacher

    Excellent lesson

  • Patti Kelly

    I had a series of lessons with Mike Calbot and my game improved dramatically! Mike didn't try to change my style - he worked with me and patiently shaped and tweaked my swing, my mental game and my overall view of golf. Absolutely awesome human being and phenomenal teacher. What makes Mike different then most others.......I felt and believed that he cared about my game and wanted me to b a better golfer. He gave me 100% of his undivided attention at every lesson. I was a 19/20 handicapper at that time and have maintained a 9.6 handicap over the past two years. I "hear" him every time I am playing with his cues and reminders. Love him!!!
