    Really appreciated the Opti Brain training. Think it’s helping, especially on short putts to establish a rhythm which enables me to make a smooth accelerating stroke more often. There’s no question I was stroking the 10-12 footers well when working with you - need to maintain that feel on shorter strokes. Good luck with your continuing work on this very interesting approach. In any event, last three scores have been lower - 81 to 84 - from white tees. Then Sun playing back 9 WF with an old friend excellent golfer 1st time out in 6 mos due to elbow surgery, he hit 18 in two, then I hit 20 yd flop lob wedge from rt side and rolled it in downhill like a putt for an eagle - after parring 6 of 1st 7, before doubling 17 from 55 yds! Anyhow, nice end to season here. Have a nice summer.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Carole Clark has been a golf professional since 1993 and member of the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional membership since 1999.  She attained her Class A status in 2004.


How did you get started teaching?

Carole has been successfully teaching junior golfers since the beginning of her career.  She was the recipient of the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional Southeast Section Sarah Hunter Junior Achievement Award in 2006.  She is also a U.S. Kids Certified Golf Instructor and was recognized as an Honorable Mention Top 50 U.S. Kids Instructor in 2012.  Many of her young linksters have developed into golf professionals themselves, have attended college on scholarship, or played on their high school or middle school team.  Others have kept the love of the game as a part of their social activities or professional career outside of golf.

What types of students have you worked with?

“I am an avid tournament golfer and have taken many golf lessons from prominent golf professionals throughout the U.S.  Many of the professionals are in the Top 100 category.  I now take lessons from Carole Clark of ParXlent Golf and I can say she has helped more than any other teacher.  She advises based upon “your swing” and does not try to change everything.  She got me to hit the ball more solid, higher and further with a proper shoulder turn.  She gratefully did not try to change a back swing flaw I have had my whole life and instead corrected my problems more simply.  She continues to improve my game and I have recommended many other tournament and non- tournament golfers (my wife) to her with great results.”

"Thank you for spending time this summer working with me on my golf.  Though I had some bad shots in yesterday’s (Club Championship) match, I had some really good ones and I went out there and competed.  And that was my goal – I didn’t want to play so poorly as to embarrass myself and I wanted to compete. Thanks to you I feel I am a much improved golfer this year, and starting to feel  more comfortable on the course – but I want to continue to get better.    I just need to work on driving, chipping, putting, pitching, sand…!"

Take care,

"I am a 5 handicap golfer who has taken numerous lessons over the last 10 years.  Of the various instructors I have used, Carole Clark had the biggest impact on my game.  Her methods are simple and straight forward and she doesn’t confuse me with too many swing thoughts.  She has a knack for identifying a swing flaw and providing instruction and drills to help correct it.  She is very easy to work with and always very positive and encouraging.  I am grateful for the time she took to help me out both on my full swing and on my short game.  I am still carrying a 36″ ruler for a drill she suggested for my putting.  I can recommend Carole without hesitation to golfers at any skill level."

Many thanks.  The golf lesson showed instant  improvement.  Shot a 99 taking a 9 on the 18th of the Wee.  Sheer sloppiness.   Will try to schedule another date for reinforcement.  At my age my memory bank requires that.

Thank YOU Carole!  When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.  Frustrated with my short game last year I set my goals and made a commitment to improving my short game this year.  Then you appeared.  Your clinics are great.  They are just what I needed. I am not just learning the shots of the short game, I am learning about myself and my game.  I have come a long way in a very short time thanks to you.  In the past two days two people have called me a good putter!  Can you imagine?  I had to look around to see who they were talking about.  It is all about confidence!  Can’t wait for Veronica’s seminar.  I want the full boat.  I am also looking forward to the next on course lesson like we had last week.  Please let me know when the next is scheduled.

Carole has helped me love the game of golf again.  I once had a much lower handicap then I have now,  but due to knee problems my swing was changed to accommodate my physical problem.  I played golf pivoting only on my left leg for a few years and then had my knee replaced, very successful operation, but I was struggling to get the right swing back until I met up with Carole.  Due to her teaching and coaching my swing is back and it is now a joy not a chore to play. She is an awesome instructor, easy to understand and to facilitate what she is teaching.
