“Mark is the best!  He was able to connect with me a way that helped better understand what I needed to do to improve my swing, both visually and physically.  Under Mark’s instruction, my handicap dropped by more than 5 strokes!”

“I have been working with Mark for several years.  Mark is a wonderful teacher that has worked with me to meet my goals, and my handicap has consistently dropped as a result of my lessons.  Mark truly understands the golf swing and has helped me get the most out of my game.”

“Mark not only recognized my faults immediately, but he has been able to explain – clearly and concisely – the problems and the corrective measures to be taken. He has given me simple exercises and has uncomplicated my swing-thought process to the point that I can see real improvement in my game.  Most importantly, Mark’s relaxed style and friendly approach to teaching has made learning from him fun. I plan to continue to take advantage of his knowledge, expertise, and gracious teaching style going forward – as I continue the search for that ever-elusive perfect golf swing.”

Mark is an outstanding golf professional and teacher. After years of struggling with a high handicap I
gave up trying to improve on my own and signed up for Mark’s six month golf improvement program.
We worked together and re-built my swing, including the short game and bunker play, from the ground
up. Mark has an excellent eye for analyzing a golf swing, kept me focused on the fundamentals, and
completely transformed my swing and my game!
