He individualizes things to your needs while understanding your frustrations
Swing concept works for all clubs in the bag including the putter. The putting is the place to start. I was ok before, now I am great, but don't take my word for it. I never made a birdie in the last 3 years untill after this new concept and made 4 in my last round. The best part my instructor Bob only had 3.
It was very easy to find an instructor and arrange a meeting.
Explains concepts of the swing in terms that you not only understand the physical advantage but are shown the drills to accomplish them.
