I have been playing golf for 40 years and I have been trying to improve for 40 years. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? I had gotten down to an 8 handicap at one time but I was never really happy with how I was hitting the ball. So I looked for ways to improve. And that means I hired golf professionals to give me lessons. 10 different instructors over the years in 3 different states and thousands of dollars. In fact one year I got so serious about being a good golfer that I spent over $5k for twice weekly lessons. And how good did I get? My confidence was zero and I couldn’t play 18 holes. Talk about frustrating. My game was in such poor shape that I had to pass on a golf trip to Ireland. And then I got lucky. We all get emails or see ads telling us how our golf game can improve if you did this or bought this product and we all fall victim to hoping this is the one. One day I saw an ad for Rotary Swing. I went to the site and liked what I saw and starting performing the drills. Wanting to make sure I was performing the drills correctly I looked for any Rotary Swing instructor local to the Phoenix area. And that’s when my luck doubled. Turned out there is one RS instructor in the area, Buddy Christianson. I reached out to Buddy and we talked. Sounded good until he told me his first lesson as only $25. I had paid well over a $100 for lessons so I was skeptical. Did I mention that I was building a house in a golf community and the idea that I would not be able to play was scary? And then he told me the lesson was in his garage. LOL. I booked the appointment. Let me start by saying that Buddy can’t tell time. No lesson has ended on time yet. Buddy’s first lesson was exactly what I needed years ago. He talked about my expectations and timeframe and the fact that his approach would be different than other instructors. He had a strategy on how to improve my game and if I was patient I would be a good golfer who enjoyed going to the golf course. Applying the principals from RS and with Buddy’s knowledge and approach, my game has changed dramatically. I am only 2 months into our 6 month plan and I have been able to actually play golf and have fun. Buddy’s has been able to rebuild my confidence. I can hit a bad shot and know that my next shot would be good. Before I met Buddy, I would have said that was impossible. I would recommend Buddy to any golfer (whatever skill level) and feel that he would improve your game. Just don’t expect to be home on time.
