"Rick Bradshaw was EXCELLENT! I have already passed his name and number off to a few of my golfing buds. He has transformed my game - literally - in just a couple of hours; but that is secondary to the thought I feel like I've found a new friend! Rick was great in areas such as listening, translating my unscientific garble (complaints) into a viable / workable golf swing that is easy to copy and replicate. Rick took extra time with me when I wasn't understanding the training, and then allowed me to repeat my successes. All in all, this was a great experience."
"Wow, Rick Bradshaw is a phenomenal golf instructor. I've been playing for over 20 years and have been at best a 12 handicap. I'm currently a 16 and the one hour that I had with him is giving me the confidence to get to single digits. He watched my swing. Said it wasn't too bad. Gave me a key fundamental thing to change and I IMMEDIATELY lost my fade/slice and gained 10-20 yards on my 7 iron. I hit like I used to hit as a younger man. Thank you, Rick. I think I'm back in love with the game!"
"Mark Arnold was an excellent teacher, he identified the issues with my swing after the first swing and gave me a couple techniques I could use to get better. It makes an amazing difference to use videos to see what I was actually doing wrong and then correct it. I would have rated the booking part higher, but this was a gift so I can not really comment on that part of the experience."
