2. Email it directly to Mike at
3. You receive an invoice from PayPal.

Mike’s ability to communicate ideas and put theory into practice is second to none. He is able to diagnose the intricate aspects of the golf swing and relay that information to you in a manner that is comfortable, simple and effective. Through technology, Mike is able to capture the essence of your golf swing which pays off immediately. Unfortunately for my playing partners, my work with Mike has allowed me to not only enjoy the game but also make a dent in their wallets! Sorry, guys. Simply stated, If you want to become a better golfer, see Mike.

Mike Fay is an excellent, highly  knowledgeable and well-experienced  golf instructor I highly recommend.  As a former pro athlete I’ve enjoyed success in several sports. However, despite playing golf on and off for over 50 years, and even winning some lower level tournaments, good consistent golf remained a mystery to me. Mike has demystified shot making by educating me so that  I know and can feel how to execute correct  shots.  His insightful teaching assisted by the latest electronic and visual shot analysis has helped me significantly improve accuracy and distance.   With Mike’s instruction, I have especially enjoyed being able to pitch and chip utilizing more spin for control to stay close to the pin.  I wish I had Mike’s instruction years ago.
