"Best golf instruction experience I have had. The combination of expert instruction from Jacob with the technical tools to provide visual and data feedback have been fantastic. I have lowered my handicap by 9 strokes."

"My daughter and I have been taking lessons with Jacob and it has been great. I couldn't recommend him more."

Jarett Clifford


"I took lessons and a club fitting with Jacob. Jacob is great at showing you what you need to pay attention to and not overloading you with the data and his demeanor is perfect for teaching this difficult sport. I will be back."

Stephen Smith


"Jacob was amazing! He fitted my husband with a full bag of clubs and was so informative. We are a new golf loving family and Jacob gave great feedback during the whole process."
