Note 5 days later:
me if you get tired of hearing from me – but
I had an 80 on the weekend in blustery conditions and
lost the competition on a count-back. My handicap has
gone from 12.4 to 10.2 in 4 days – so I’m
pretty happy with golf at the moment.
appreciated the detailed golf ball presentation that
You certainly went above and beyond with your ball
recommendation. That is the best information
I have ever received. Thank you so much for
taking your time to help me out.

for the detailed advice and GBR....wow..
went out today and got a sleeve of (Recommended
Ball) at the pro shop on my public course.
got off some good drives and seemed to be getting better
distance but the soft sound made me wonder if I really
was. Then on the last 2 holes I was really in a good
groove. I hit the first slightly lower than usual with
some draw, and I could hear a crisper sound, and the
ball really ran, even on lush grass and I wound up
last hole had a 7 ft tee elevation. I really caught
it, and could hear an even better sound..had plenty
of height, dead straight with tiny fade at end and the
ball CARRIED 250 and stopped dead in a mushy
can't remember the last time I carried that far!!
know I would not have carried that far with the other
balls.... You are a gentleman and a scholar (of golf).
for your help,

you! I got it and really appreciate all of the information
that you shared with me.
really enjoyed reading "The Key to a Repeating
Golf Swing" and I have already made it my main
key. It is definitely helping me hit the ball
where I want to hit it depending on the shot
that I am playing.
second benefit is that it seems to really be helping
me with my tempo. I will keep you posted as
I continue to work on it through the cold Cleveland
winter... it has really been making a difference in
H. - Ohio, USA - 10 HCP
have received and read the report and thank you very
much for your thorough analysis... (The
Key) helps promote better balance.
With good balance, I can hit the sweet spot more
often... the ball flight was lower and I gained
again for your kind assistance.

you so much for your detailed response to
my input. I am overwhelmed and humbled by the extent
to which you went the extra mile on this.
you for such dedication. It is a true blessing and
very motivating to come across someone who clearly
loves what they do.
the best from your humble long distance student,
B. - Seattle, USA - 9 HCP
hot stuff. I will recommend you to all my golf buddies.
followed your advice and bought a 11° driver head
(cheap from GolfWorks), Very impressive shots at first
sight. Well, on the first tee I drove down the middle... It
was the first time after thousand rounds that I hit
100% of the fairways.
I'm focusing on pitching, chipping and putting.These
are my golf resolutions for 2009, get it closer to
keep in touch for more details on my distance progress.
C. - Brazil - 14 HCP
very interesting and informative report - worth
the cost of the course just for that!
will take some time to take on board all the advice
you have given, but I will be paying serious attention
to all you say. Thank you again.
S.- UK - 10 HCP
wonderful response, much of what you say makes a lot
of sense to me, you apparently are an insightful
teacher, plan to print out all of this and
refer to it often, thank you very much, will concentrate
on the keys you’ve given me, stay tuned, I will
keep you in the loop,
S. - Pennsylvania, USA - 15 HCP
you very much for your indepth and detailed ball suggestions. I
was really surprised at the detail of your suggestions. When
I received your responce saying you needed a little
more time to responed, I honestly thought how difficult
could it be to say, "I suggest you use a Titelist
Pro V ball."
only did you not suggest that particular ball,
but you gave me so much more invaluable info.
you read all my info and evaluated it with every bit
of your intelect. Thank you.
W. - Texas, USA - 21 HCP
just wanted to thank you for the feedback on
the ball recommendation.
am going to try the (Recommended
Ball) this week and see what happens. I had
a 10.5 degree driver and was only getting a launch
angle of 9 to 10 degrees so we kept moving up on the
driver until we got my launch up to 13 degrees. (Note
, I addressed Rick's launch angle after analyzing his
swing speed and flight specifics).
thank my bad drives are a result of my set up and swing
plane. When I am on plane and not too flat I get that
desired launch angle and thus a good straight drive.
I really appreciate your help and hopefully by next
summer I will reach that single digit handicap.
M. - Oklahoma, USA - 15 HCP
received the file just fine. Thanks very much
for a well thought out evaluation.
refreshing to get something that isn’t
just cookie cutter, but obviously has had
some thought put against it.
really appreciate it, and I’ll follow up on some
of your recommendations.
B. - Colorado, USA - 16 HCP

I expect to score in the 70's (just kidding). Again
