The women I golfed with could not believe how well I was playing with only a handful of lessons. I attribute this to Derek’s careful lesson progression. Derek has instilled the love of the game in me...

Derek has taken me from someone who was shooting in the 130+ range to now getting down into the mid 90’s on a consistent basis. All in just the last 6 months!
