What Students are saying!...
"I still can't get over what an incredible experience I had at your school! Wow! you packed a lot into two days. You worked hard throughout in explaining and coming up with feels, visualizations and movements to help us with our golf swing.
I have already ordered the Swing Plate. I know I do not own anything but the information you provided gives me a roadmap for improvement. I plan to use this information to continue improvements and make the changes
permanent. I also hope to work with you in the future both virtually and at another school." - D. Morrison Sept 2023
"Thank you again for an amazing school. When we got home Sully couldn't put your book down, and spent 2 hours practicing at the range today. Clearly you had an incredible impact. Thanks again." - Kevin R. May 2022
"Wanted to thank you for putting on a great clinic on Friday. Deanne had a great time and came away with impactful tips, cues, and (most importantly) feels. We played 9 holes today and she was so amazing. She hit 6 amazing drives on the first 6 holes right on line and with amazing trajectory. Her second shots from the fairway with her hybrids, which she struggled to get off the ground, we're beautifully flighted and at worst were "good enough" shots. Didn't see her top a single one. She looked like Justin Rose on the greens with the Aim Point technique which gave her a great frame work for reading the putt and executing it. She has so much more confidence it's unbelievable. Anyway, thanks again for helping her embrace the challenge and experience the rewards of this great game.
Best regards" - J. Welle June 2022
"Just wanted to thank you again for helping me with my game improvement. Due to your work with me I was able to shoot two of my lowest rounds ever (81 and 84) while in Scottsdale, and it was truly enjoyable... Once again thank you for helping me improve my game." - B. Watts March 2023
Thank You Erika! Truly, you have a gift for for giving such simple logic with immediate results. My only regret is that I didn't come sooner!The book is marvelous. Thank you! ...you are the master of teaching how to making the "golf tools" used efficient and pain free.
'm so excited to incorporate all I learned into my game. Pam S. May 2022
Many thanks for an outstanding school. The commentary, language and visuals used, the stations, and the drills were all very informative and gave a new perspective on each aspect of the game. And I had several 'ah-has' which is great! I will be digging into the book today to reinforce much of what we heard yesterday. John S. June 2022
Thank you so much for your assistance! I thoroughly enjoyed the golf program. You provided me with lots of helpful ideas, etc.
You do an extremely good job of explaining / demonstrating so it's easy to understand.
I look forward to practicing & playing this weekend! Anne S. June 2022
Thanks for an amazing day! It was such a pleasure to learn from you. The day left me excited to start the season and with so many great tools to improve my game. I must confess I woke up on Thursday a bit obsessed with finding time to practice. I hope you will continue to put these days together. Kendra June 2022
Many thanks, Erika for an awesome event. Not only was it fun, it was the best and most comprehensive lesson l've ever had. You simplified the complex game of golf for us - I think we'll all be playing with clearer heads now. We're so lucky to have the opportunity to learn from both - hopefully we can do it again next year! Maureen, June 2022
I wanted to follow up with a huge THANK YOU for the lesson and the time you spent with us. You were more than welcoming. It was really nice of you to adapt as the size our group kept growing. Your knowledge of the game of golf is amazing. You are a kind and patient teacher of the game. We truly appreciated that you met each of us where we are at in the game, rather than having a cookie cutter approach that we were all supposed to squeeze into. You helped all of us to enjoy the game even more.
Have a great summer. Toby H.
Still smiling from my golf-school last May (where has Summer gone!) My game really has improved and my arm no longer hurts because I know how to swing properly-now if I could just do it all the time and play more.....got started yesterday! Love the true swing! Exactly what I was hoping for. Already feeling the difference in the range. Nice work on your course,
Dave S. July 2022
Just started with True Swing this week and just through the heave, but played a round today thinking swing with loose arms and wow, the results. Had been low 50s for 9 holes and today shot 46 with some suspect putting, LOL..thanks and will keep working on my True Swing! Take care! Bob S. July 2022
Thanks for your help with my game…..went out on a course I had never played yesterday and shot my best score in a long time by just letting it go. Need to work on dialing in my distances but what a great problem to have. Great contact with my True Swing! Keep teaching! Ted B. Aug 2022
