WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I used to play golf 3-4 days a week, then life took over and the game became very rusty and even hurt to swing the clubs. I recently picked the clubs back up and was hitting the driving range because I wanted another form of exercise and I really enjoy golf (when I can hit the ball consistently) and being outdoors. After several attempts to get my swing back on my own, I decided to take a lesson. I just had my first golf lesson from Austin Jarchow yesterday, and after just one lesson, I feel like I'm on the path to not only getting the swing back, but a much improved, and pain free swing. Austin was able to analyze my swing, make corrections, show me drills and give me small things to think about. By the end of the lesson, I was hitting straight, consistent and further than I had prior. Taking a private lesson was well worth my time and I will certainly be back, hopefully to work on my short game and to just have check-ins from time to time. There's always room for improvement, no matter what skill level or sport for that matter. If you play golf, no matter your skill level, give Austin your time. Great instruction and no pressure. I've not been this excited to get out and play a round in a long time!"
