Saturday was my last of six lessons I had booked with Tony, what an instructor he is. I have had lessons from other professionals in the past and Tony beats them all hands down. He has totally re-modelled my swing and in doing so has instilled confidence and each lesson has been a joy to attend. His teaching methods are current with the use of video which he then sends over to me after each lesson so I have something to refer back to and he teaches in such a way that it is easy to learn. His communication skills are superb and I would have no hesitation in referring Tony to anyone that wants to improve their game. Indeed we have already worked out a further strategy where I will keep visiting Tony periodically to ensure I haven’t fallen into any bad habits and we are going to resume a few lessons in March on other aspects of my game such as short game, bunker play etc.
