I used the new driver on Saturday morning and it worked really well, right from the tee shot on the first hole, which was one of the best I've hit for quite a while. Definitely picked up some distance. The shaft obviously suits me well.
Just to let you know that your lesson last week has had an immediate impact. I feel much stronger now from 100 yds out and that confidence has fed through into the rest of my game
Having been having lessons with you I wanted to write a brief recommendation that you may wish to use. I came to Jeff when I was scoring well over my handicap and playing pretty poorly. Work started immediately and he quickly realised that my irons had shafts that were far too weak for me. Jeff let me try my 5 iron with a correct shaft and I was so impressed I changed the lot. The opposite happened with the driver where it proved to be correct so we knew it was just down to the swing! Since the start of a series of lessons I am now hitting the ball much more consistently. I have changed from having a slice to a strong straight/draw. This was not my intention but the welcome outcome. I now hit about a club less than before and my driving is much straighter as well as 20-30 yards longer. We also had a look at putting and took an inch off the putter and it now fits and along with some other adjustments the three putts are much rarer. Finally I had a short game lesson. I always thought that my chipping was pretty good but had a few good pointers added. Where the lesson really helped was in showing me some new shots and strategies and sorting out my bunker shots. After a few months the result of all of this is that I now have a set of clubs I know are correctly set up for me, I hit the ball longer and straighter and my short game is sharper. Although my handicap has yet to drop due to a lack of competitions I am now back to regularly hitting under my handicap and have even been as low as 7 shots below it on a couple of occasions.
My last lesson on the full wedge is the best Â£45 on golf I have ever spent. Those principles of tempo and lower body movement have revolutionised my whole game.
I'm very pleased with the re-fit of shafts. I've never hit such straight balls with my longer irons. Taylormade R7 Woods refitted with the DG S300 shafts are great feel quite different to the black gold. I'm totally confident with my 5 wood now. So straight with a slight draw to finish. I'm even hitting my 3 wood with more confidence off the fairway. I've played a couple of medals and stablefords already net 71 (CSS 70) and net 62 (CSS 65), 44 & 41 points. So far 3 rounds of cuts, I'm going the right way.
Jeff has enabled me to understand the simple principles of the golf swing and given me the confidence to believe I can play the game. As a direct result my handicap has gone from 24 to 18 in just two months, enabling me to achieve a long held golfing ambition of scoring in the mid 80's. I would be delighted to recommend Jeff to all golfers who find the game both fascinating and frustrating as I am confident his patient and precise tuition will enable all his students to get a great deal more enjoyment from the game. Have tried to go round in less than 90 for almost two decades. Achieved it with a score of 86 after just four lessons.
I was hitting every shot fat, had one lesson, massive improvement first time out. Only hit one shot fat in the whole round.
After playing golf for eight years I'd been stuck on a 21 handicap. My game had started to deteriorate rapidly even though my short game had improved, I found myself regularly slicing my long shots “ which were getting shorter. In desperation I went to Jeff after golfing friends had shown marked improvement after seeing him. After just two lessons and a new set of irons I played to my handicap for the first time in years. I am hitting the ball more consistently, straighter and longer, the new irons have a much higher flight and I absolutely love my wedges. I'm now confident I will be playing off 18 by the end of the season with a few more lessons. My husband was so impressed with the improvement in my game that he has now started having lessons too!
After 4 lessons. Had been to other coaches, 24 H/C and on the verge of giving up the game. I received clear concise instruction and played 3 rounds to my handicap and the last round 4 under H/C. I'm now enjoying playing again.
First of all Many, Many thanks for the second lesson. I have just returned from golf with my mates this morning “ I scored my lowest ever score (86) and have put in a card for handicap so I can get cut from my h/c of 21. You told me I would play a different course at my club and you were right, as I was able to drive well over all the fairway bunkers onto the fairway leaving a nice iron into the green. I haven't stopped smiling yet! “ money well spent.
I was really impressed by the overall approach Jeff had to the custom fitting. Time was taken to ensure both lie, loft, shaft, weight and grip were all tailor made to my personal requirements. I now feel much more confident with my clubs all the way through the bag, I am already seeing more consistency of strike and accuracy and hopefully results will follow. I can recommend Jeff's service.
Clubs are going well, much more solid and consistent, have been playing well with them. Just need to sharpen up the scoring and should be all set for the season. Since the lofts have been corrected this has given me a lot of confidence that the clubs all fit well in the bag, the Black Gold shafts are excellent really produce good ball flight and distances are consistent.
Just to let you know how I did this weekend, Saturday 43 points I won this competition. Sunday not as good as Saturday but still my best competition rounds for a while. Driving was good. The lessons have helped indeed “ many thanks.
Jeff, I wanted to say that I learnt more in a hour hitting 30 balls than I have hitting 100's of balls at my numerous visits to the range. The technology you have enabled me to have all the information I needed about my swing within a touch of a button, and the way you relayed the information was simple and easy to understand. The information on club fitting has also been a real eye opener and rest assured I will never be buying clubs of the shelf again!
I met Jeff at a County Match and arranged to come along for a fitting. I explained what I wanted and Jeff took down all the necessary measurements. One week later my irons and driver had been custom fitted. Grip type & size, shaft length & speed, weight, loft & lies were all corrected, its like having a new set of clubs. Great result, great service!
