David has proved to be instrumental in my daughter's golf development. He is outstanding at getting her to understand the "why" behind his instruction. She is able to take her training and apply it while practicing on her own.

Cont...He has great patience and compassion for his students. He really takes the time to get to know the kids and truly cares about the development of their golf game.

I have been struggling with my game for a while. I had lost my swing and confidence. Working with David has been phenomenal. He has given me a few very simple drills and swing thoughts to focus on and it absolutely changed my game.

David has the unique ability to transfer knowledge and skills through a variety of strategies. He uses physical modeling, guided practice and visualization to help achieve success. I'm grateful for the improvement I have seen in my game.

David has provided golf instruction for me and my family. He keeps things simple and is also a great person, easy to talk to, and a great sense of humor. We have all seen significant improvements. He is the BEST!!!
