“Mike, just want to say thanks for your insights on my swing. I appreciate the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach to improvement. You’ve added to my confidence in knowing that (at least for now) my grip, stance and alignment are providing a reliable platform to build on. I look forward to continuing to work with you on maintaining progress on the long game and kick starting a major improvement on the putting and short game.”
“Mike, I really appreciate the lesson on no notice. It was a tremendous help. The follow-up images you sent are perfect. I'm very impressed with your ability to focus in quickly on the adjustment and the resulting benefit. After we finished, I took a break and then went back out and hit more balls for 30 minutes. The ball striking was really solid. Can't wait to continue to work on it and to see how it will feel on the course.”
