Kevyn believes that a golf lesson should be the start of a relationship between client and instructor and he regularly keeps in contact with clients that send him golf swings over the internet.
Bring The Course To The Range
It is often said that most golfers head out to the range to bang golf balls. That is all well and good if your trying to kill some time before you tee off, or you’re wanting something to do when you’re not playing golf. But to really work on your game and improve your shot selection on the course, you really need to bring the course to the range.
