I’ve been working with Ryan since last fall, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Ryan does an excellent job explaining golf swing concepts in a simple and understandable way. Every time I leave a lesson I feel like a much better player. His post lesson breakdowns with what to practice in between lessons are awesome. Highly recommend Ryan for lessons!
Ryan is an amazing instructor. Very patient, extremely knowledgeable and talented. His love for the game is evident in the way he teaches the game. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking to improve your game off The Tee, with your irons or on the green. 5 STARS!
Started lessons last year with Ryan after getting new clubs that I played for 22years. I was headed west to Play Tehama CC , Pebble Beach , Spy Glass and Spanish Bay. I took 4 lessons before the trip played abs the result was playing the best golf of my life 85 at Pebble Beach from the Blues!
Thank you Ryan for seriously impacting my game, loving the confidence in my shots and making the game even more enjoyable
I initially set up a coaching session with Ryan because I was completely new to golf. I was wanting to get better but didn't know how or where to start. From the first lesson, I knew I'd be a consistent student of his. He breaks down the game of golf into a form that is not only relevant to my way of thinking and pattern of movement, but it is digestible and not intimidating. You can tell he cares about what he does and I really didn't think I'd enjoy the process of learning the golf game until I started taking lessons with Ryan. Within just a few lessons I went from not being able to make contact with the ball and not being able to take the club back fully, to taking a full back swing and finding connection majority of the time all with a strong foundation. I could not have found that strength in the basics without Ryan's guidance and vast knowledge of the sport and knact for relating to people. Cannot recommend him enough.
I saw Ryan early in 2020. I have been back several times since because I trust the teaching and learning process we have been building. Ryan has demonstrated excellent understanding of the golf swing. I have clear confidence he is teaching me to develop and become a higher level player/golfer. If I had to pinpoint his greatest strength, its his ability to recognize quickly swing missteps/flaws and communicate why he believes an adjustment needs to be made for improvement. He accomplishes this both verbally and visually and the feedback allows me to develop new skills quickly. Every time I leave his studio, I feel like I am a leaving better player.
