    Michael focuses well on his student and communicates well the subtleties of this sport be it the short or long game. My primary objective now is to have Michael work with my 32 year-old son whenever he comes to Florida.

  • Tony Ott

    Great GOLF INSTRUCTOR. Forms strong relationship with his students. Accessible, enthusiastic, and caring. Very patient, positive, and well-organized. Mike makes sure you understand before moving on to the next flaw in your game. He was able to understand how I learned best. He brought a wealth and depth of golf knowledge and understanding to each lesson, as well as the ability to deliver that knowledge to me quickly and simply. Terrific instructor to take to golf tournaments. Highly recommend Mike.
