  • David Radtke

    Patient, instructive, clear directions and knowledgeable


    Robert was great at taking the time to understand the best way I, as an individual learn. His exercises were easy to understand and helped me make that mind/body connection. Everything he taught me were things I could go over and practice on my own at home. Definitely worth it!

  • Jeanette Carnaghi

    He didn't try to 'fix everything. We worked on a couple of things and no pressure for future lessons

  • John Parks

    I thought Robert did a great job of asking me all the right questions about my golf game and what I hoped to achieve. He is thorough and listens to my answers. He is providing me with verbal and written feedback after we finished the lesson.
