Bob helped me with my grip, pre-shot routine, and some other things. My first time out after the lesson I had my best round in 2 years by 6 strokes.

Bob was great. It was awesome to be able to chat with someone as knowledgeable as he is during the lesson and hear his thoughts on what I thought I was doing wrong. Bob knows his golf and he will only steer you in the right direction! I’ve seen much game greatly improve since my lesson with him and I will most definitely be coming back in the future! 10/10 would recommend.

Bob was able to instantly identify what I was doing wrong and correct it with simple instructions that I could apply right away. Within a few swings I couldn’t believe the results, looking forward to the rest of the lessons.

Bob is a true pro and was very helpful during out first coaching session. I wanted to go back to the fundaments and within the one hour we cleaned up my grip and ball position. Bob ensured my swing had the proper fundaments, making recommendations and highlighted the proper aspects of a good swing. He even had clubs with him for me try out. I learned my inconsistencies with my driver are not from my swing, but from the driver itself. After trying a driver with a stiffer shaft and more loft, I began hitting drives straight and long! Bob was great and I look forward to more sessions!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $100 per hour, package of 6 one hour lessons for $500.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Interview the customer to define his most pressing issue and then improve on that as quickly as possible and then go on to the next. My goal is to get the player a lot better as fast as I can and then keep them better as long as I can. This is my nature because of my background as a competitive golfer.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've been to countless seminars, read countless books, watched countless videos, taken lessons from the top teachers in the world but the best education and training I received was from my father growing up and then the experience from playing competitive golf all my life, instructing golfers on the lesson tee for 35 years and club fitting for 21 years with the same company. I've learned by doing.
