…you will not be disappointed…
Last spring, I decided to take up golf after a respite of many years. Being the “Type A” person that I am, I identified a golf coach and had 15+ lessons with him. Despite this – and my practicing and playing every weekend – I made little progress. I decided to give it one more try this year. So, I took a couple of more lessons with the same instructor, practiced, played – and the results were the same.
After one particularly “ugly” practice session at Luke’s newly renovated driving range, I was about to give up – until he approached me and asked if I was open to a few suggestions. He identified a few major flaws which gave me hope that, perhaps, I did have a chance to improve my game. He assured me that if I took lessons from him that he would guarantee an improvement in my game.
In that first brief encounter, I just knew that Luke was the right instructor for me based on his: 1) passion for the sport, 2) supreme confidence in his ability to help others improve, 3) patience to deal with people who are struggling, and 4) straight-forward approach.
In fact, after only a couple of lessons, I learned more about how to improve my game than I did with the 15+ lessons I took the previous year. In particular, Luke showed me how I could enhance my accuracy and power by: 1) changing my grip, 2) actually cutting BACK on my backswing to remain in greater control (“effortless power”), and, most importantly, 3) being in “balance” from start to finish. The resulting progress I have seen in my shots is very satisfying – with disbelief at times that they came off of my swings!
While my performance on the course is still not where I want it to be, I now know that my goal of breaking 100 is within my grasp. As a result, I have a renewed passion and commitment to improving my game – with a growing confidence to match. This would never have happened without the terrific guidance and encouragement provided by Luke. Without ANY hesitation, I strongly recommend that anyone – at any level – who is serious about improving his/her game should work with Luke. You will not be disappointed.
