David was very helpful and his instructions were easy to follow and helped me tremendously. I now hit the ball straighter and longer with less effort. I would definitely recommend his advice to anybody looking to improve their golf game.

Thank you for the videos. And also many thanks for the coaching we received last night. We picked up many tips and a new way to help each on the golf course and especially coach myself as well.
