    Video system didn't work, so Wade used his phone to record my swing, couldn;t really see screen. Still cost the same. was hoping to receive video email so I could practice. Won't be back.

    The computer system crashed and I had to improvise. It has been replaced with a more reliable one. I still provided a video of the swing via email. Sorry about the issue. Offers to refund the money on the lesson were declined.

    After only one lesson with Wade I feel more comfortable with my golf game. He is very patient and will mold his lessons to what best fits your learning style. I highly recommend giving Wade a shot if you would like to see game improvement! I look forward to further lessons.

    I love the way Wade customized his teaching style to my way of learning. It made it so easy for me to follow and understand especially since I haven't been playing but for about 2 and a half years. Thank you Wade for all of your help and advice I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and look forward to more and an improved golf game...already see great improvements with my dreaded 3 wood!!!!

    Very patience and informative. Also very knowledgeable about the mechanics of the swing. Went from never playing the game to consistently hitting the ball and learning all of the fundamentals.

    Played the best golf of my life after a few lessons from Wade. He has a real gift for identifying swing flaws. A patient, perceptive teacher.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I try to attend a new teaching class every other year and I visit with and mirror peer instructors often.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love teaching all skill levels and I am passionate about helping people.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most of my beginner clients are looking for a good base of instruction so that they can enjoy the game more with their golfing spouses or friends. They typically will take up to 3 series of 6 lessons to get "golf ready." My advanced golfers are typically taking advantage of my expertise in fitting and teaching technology to provide solutions to specific problems or to give them across the board improvements knocking 5-10 strokes off of their averages. This includes use of slow motion video, computerized teaching and club fitting along with the use of the Zelocity launch monitor to provide a specific diagnosis and a lesson plan to help them reach their goals. Examples: -Perfecting Driver fitting to add 30+ yards to tee shots -Tuning a set of clubs to allow them to perform better with a students natural swing for immediate results without major swing changes.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently helped a student who had been slicing the ball for over 10 years to learn to draw the ball and hit straight shots.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Take a introductory lesson or a trial short lesson from a new instructor to make sure that you get along.
