Since working with Gary’s team, I have lowered by score by 2 strokes on average. It’s tough when you’re a +1 to do that. Gary’s simple and fun understanding of the game makes it EASY to learn. The drills, video and use of his app make making a change in my swing simple and rewarding. His on course management made the game fun again for me. He also taught me that’s it’s OK to make a mistake and not take things too seriously.
