“I began taking golf instruction from  Mike a few months ago, shortly after I retired.  He has really helped me, as evidenced by the fact that I have knocked 5 to 10 strokes off my game.  The biggest factor has been that Mike has given me the tools I need to analyze my errors and make the necessary correction.”

Ralph Kenning
