Brian, just a short note of thanks. Today's session with Andi was so far beyond our expectations. She was struggling to get her driver back to pre-swing changes and you solved the issue so brilliantly. Andi and I were so impressed how wonderfully clear you explained everything. Andi is now on track to have a monumental spring/summer tournament season. She still has tons of additional practice time to groove your instructions but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Consequently, it's perfectly clear why you will be honored on Monday as "Teacher of the Year" by the IPGA. Absolutely appropriate and so wonderful that your hard, dedicated, diligent efforts will recognized for the excellence you so richly deserve. Thanks from a very grateful dad.

It's that simple. Hide the red dot

"Hide the Red Dot" allows the golfer to set up to the putter consistently every time in relation to the intended target, leading to better set up, better alignment and a better stroke.  Simply line up the black bottom portion of the shaft between the two white lines and cover the signature red dot on the heel of the top line.

SeeMore originally became recognized when Payne Stewart won the 1999 U.S. Open playing a SeeMore putter in the greatest final round putter performance in U.S. Open history.  The brand was relaunched in 2007 and immediately regained worldwide prominence as Zach Johnson used a SeeMore FGP to win the 2007 Masters.  SeeMore's website at and has many new features about SeeMore's remarkable legacy, technology and tour success.  SeeMore putters are custom made in Franklin, TN.

Everything was great. Our room was the first room by the entrance - quite convenient. Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. John was phenomenal. He took his time and was very patient with us. He thoroughly explained all of the instructions/lessons. I would highly recommend John to anyone who wants to improve their golf game. We are hoping to come back in July to have John fit us for new clubs. The golf courses were in great shape. We thoroughly enjoyed our time playing golf on both courses. I don't know how we got three days in without any rain. Our entire stay was greater than we anticipated.

My experience at Swan Lake was fantastic. Brian was a phenomenal instructor. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. It was definitely everything that I expected it would be. My game, and my confidence, has definitely improved thanks to Brian. Thanks again. I will be back next year. Have a great summer.

I wanted to be in touch with you and let you know the boys have been playing very well as of late. Donovan was the medalist this past Monday night in a golf tournament at Black Squirrel in Goshen. It was an invitational between Goshen, Northwood, Northridge and Fairfield (Donovan’s team). Again Donovan was the medalist. Just tonight (Thursday) Wynton shot a 38 and was the medalist for his tournament between Lakeland, Eastside and Fairfield (Wynton’s team). This is Wynton’s all time low from the men’s tees. In fact that is the lowest he’s ever shot on nine holes. I just wanted to say thank you for all the wisdom you’ve imparted on the boys and the skills that you’ve taught them. They are simply playing amazing and that has a ton to do with you. They are both peaking at the right time. Again thank you so much it has been a blessing to work with you. We look forward to doing that more going forward.
