  • Tim Breen

    showed me how to make the proper swing in a way that I understood and taught me how to execute it. Great teacher

  • Rafael Rubio

    Bob was easy to work with. He gave simple instructions that was easy to follow. In one session, I added 40 yds to my drive with minor adjustments to my grip and alignment.

  • Michael Root

    Bob was great. He made us feel comfortable. We were completely inexperienced. We did a 5 lesson package and now feel very confident moving forward. He brought clubs for us to use, was always timely, very easy to schedule with and accommodating. Always prompt when communicating. He had multiple location options for us depending on the weather. Great lessons, great conversation too! Highly recommend.
