Ryan Lee (Pembroke Hill High School)

Jb has great eyes for swing mechanic and gives quick and easy ways to make adjustments to get rid of undesirable movements. He can coach the basics as well as fine tune for advanced golfers.

Jeff Wolfert (former NFL player)

I have worked with JB for the past 5 years. JB has helped me improve my swing mechanics, making my swing more consistent and repeatable. We have worked together on everything from driver, to mid-irons, to scoring wedges to putting. I especially find his insights during a video swing analysis helpful. If you are new to the game, or an experienced player, I have no doubt JB can advance your game to the next level!
