Beautiful setting. VERY attentive! All his attention was on my son and instruction. No phone calls. No splitting his time amongst several students. Video of every stage. Very thorough. We’ll DEFINITELY be signing up for more lessons!
Each lesson builds on the last, not adding too much, giving the student the chance to refine the latest “Matt input” via range time. Explains the swing thoughts he’s working on with you very well.
Matt is a genius when it comes to understanding the golf swing (and I don’t throw the word “genius” around lightly). He is amazingly perceptive when diagnosing a problem, and very skilled at identifying the root cause. It is really mind-blowing. Even better is his way of explaining it in a way that makes sense to me, and giving me corrective drills to practice. I’ve worked with A LOT of instructors over the years, but Matt is by far the best. If you’re considering booking him for a lesson, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
