From Steven Clevenger:
"Phil covered every aspect of the game, chipping, pitching, sand play, driving, and putting. This was two days of hands on instruction.  I thought it was really important that he played a round with us each day giving us further instruction on like club selection and reading the greens. All in all it exceeded my expectations."

From Matt Serier:
"...I really appreciate that you took the time to go through the different areas of golf, and allowing us to find where we wanted to work on our game.  I also appreciate the patience shown when I was struggling at times, and you're good at helping limit my own frustration with your insights."
