    Hi Eric

    Your videos are SO informative, it’s just amazing to be able to contrast these with other golf instruction. I suppose it’s also due to the fact that you actually have to compete for a living, not like some of those other golf instructors out there!

    Also may I add that no other golf coaching program I know of covers such a wide array of aspects of the game. Too mant just deal with the mechancis and technique but not much more.

    I knew when I came across your program that I was heading down the right road just by the fact you were trying to address “root causes” from the outset, rather than ” Here is a quick tip or fix”. And your opening chapter on BALANCE in “The 5 keys to Distance” just set me down the right road. No golf instructor has ever taught me about balance….they merely mentioned it in passing, almost as if it was a given and assumed that we are all capable of executing the complex movement of a golf swing in perfect balance from the outset!

    Thank you so much for all your excellent, insightful and easy to comprehend teaching – it sets you apart from the rest !! This video alone is just one more aspect of what makes your teaching method unique.

    Keep up the good work and hope to be able to meet you one day, so I can personally thank you. Very best regards and good luck at Mesquite! I’m rooting for you!!

    I had wanted to make quite a few comments when I initially bought the book/DVD and access to the basic membership about a year ago. I love so much of what you are doing, but most of all must comment on your incredible balance, and of course, you insistence to all your followers to “do nothing at the expense of balance”. I use that phrase on purpose because, as a Canadian (from Winnipeg – Go Jets Go!), I can recall as a kid listening to the great George Knudson, who also grew up in Winnipeg, state in his teachings, “Do nothing at the expense of balance:. My other Canadian icon of course, was Moe Norman, whose balance was equally superb, just in a different way. I really wish that in your DVD, and your RSS feeds, you would feature hi def slo-mo of your swing, with analysis and teachings. Your swing is amazing and you should be featuring it, and using it as a model, it’s that good. What do you say, my friend. Let’s get some hi def slo-mo of you in action. I replay your short intro swing that begins every segment of your DVD, but that gets really tiring. All the best in the upcoming competition, and no matter how it turns out, you’re a winner, a class act and and golfing gentleman in my book.

      Hi Tommy,
      Thank you so much for your comments! Really appreciate the feedback. I’ll have to work on the Slo-Mo swing thing. It would be a good idea (not that my swing is perfect), as it would give me a chance to highlight certain parts of the swing and the body as they are in motion.
      I’m so glad you recognize the importance of Balance in the swing. And in any athletic endeavor. Like many golfers I didn’t think about it much when I was learning how to swing faster in preparation for the Worlds … until I got myself OUT of balance and saw my swing go haywire.
      I honestly don’t understand why more teaching professionals fail to address this fundamental issue. I estimate that 90% of all my students are not in good athletic balance in their set up. Most have their center of mass out over their toes. Understandable, since the lengths of the clubs forces us to bend over, moving the center of mass. But there is a right way and a wrong way to get into posture that sets you up on athletic balance.
      Thanks also for your kind wishes at the Worlds. I’m hitting the ball well right now, and looking forward to competing!
