After my Clinic with Nick I shot my best nine holes ever - 38



Nick has helped my swing and game tremendously. He gave me simple changes and drills to work on, and I am hitting the ball about 15 yards farther and much straighter



My son was struggling to get the ball in the air, but after lessons with Nick, he hits his driver and irons solidly and is playing really well
