Thanks for the Aim Point lesson Friday. I went out Saturday and for the first time had something better than just wild guessing as to the break and the proper line of the putt, which, as it turned out, I had been under-reading by a substantial margin. I sank a 15 foot birdie putt that had a good foot break, and I only had one three-putt. I made 5 or 6 putts from 10 feet in that I would not have made without the system, except by pure chance.

Since Mar. 13th when I started my series of 8 lessons with you, I have improved from a high 90’s player, losing 6 ball’s a round, to a solid mid to low 80’s player, with a low round of 78, your knowledge of the game and your teaching ability is beyond all my expectations.

Just wanted you to know that after 70 years of trying today I made my first ever hole in one. A 149 yard elevated par 3 with most of the flag blind. Used a 7 iron and in it went. I have to credit your lessons in Feb. re: iron play for that success. I shot 3 under my age for the round ….. Wanted you to know and thank you for the help I got.
