Amazing Results

As a PGA instructor, I am always pleased that I am able to improve my student's swings and provide the results that they are striving to attain. I strive to instill confidence that they can take what they have learned and to implement those things out on the course.

David is the best golf instructor I have ever had. He does not try to impose his will on you.  He works with your ability and what you want to work on.  He helped me correct my slice in 10 minutes.

As a lefty, I’ve always been wary of lessons from right-handers.  David was great at showing me some basic issues with my swing and never once told me to watch him and then do the opposite.  Highly recommend.

Very clear instruction and a number of helpful tips on driving, chipping, pitching and putting.  He also explained the importance of a proper grip.
