as I progressed through the lessons my game was changing and it was for the better. He was very patient with me... My wife also takes lessons and her swing has gotten straighter and longer.

Michael knows his stuff. Nice guy who explains techniques and drills in easy to understand ways. Definitely seeing improvements to my game after only a few lessons.
