I had the great fortune to work with Skip Malek for three days last week and cannot say enough about how analytical, patient and professional his instruction was. I can honestly say it far exceeded my expectations and, if I am able to integrate all his pointers and lessons, then my game will greatly improve. I am already planning a... More

My husband and I are relatively new to the game of golf so we decided to sign up for the two-day Golf School program to get us to the next level. Our instructor was Jesse Watkins. Based on how we've played since then, his instruction had a positive impact on our play! He was very patient and encouraging, didn't overwhelm... More

What a great three days. Jess Watkins was the best! I have been working with a pro for many years - Jess was a great compliment to all the work I've done in the past. Admittedly I was lucky, I was the only student he had for the three days so it was very intense. He quickly pin pointed a... More

My instructor was Jesse Watkins and he was excellent. Very personable, patient, experienced, tried to work around my swing rather than impose a rigid set of mechanics. If this doesn't lower my handicap by 10 strokes in the coming summer, it will be through lack of practice on my part rather than what he taught me. I would recommend this... More

I had the pleasure of working with Jessie Watkins. He was able to breakdown my golf swing and build it back again, using multiple techniques to reinforce a natural golf swing. I participated in the two day program. The first three hours was at the range using a number of different clubs from driver to sand wedge. They video tape... More

I took up the game of golf very late in life and had the good fortune of working with Skip Malek over a two day period last month. I won't kill you with detail, but I learned A LOT in such a short period of time and left with insight and skills that will drastically improve my game. Skip is... More

Three of us lady golfers attended the three hours short game golf school taught by Skip---we did an hour of chipping/pitching, an hour getting out of the sand and an hour of putting. It was AWESOME! Skip makes the lesson fun and simple. His explanations makes sense and can easily be incorporated into any skill level. I walked away with... More

I talk a better golf game then I play. With that in mind, I went to the Golf Academy at SeaPines (Hilton Head Island, South Carolina) and took a total12 hours of lessons with Skip and Marty, 4 hours a day for 3 days. I had been there before, and really enjoyed the challenge and actually did improve. This time,... More

Worked with Marty on the 3 hour full swing program. There were 4 people in the group and I was able to get rid of a couple of nasty quirks in my long irons and fairway woods. I took a couple hour break for a wardrobe change and a cooldown and then hit the Ocean Course for 18 holes. I... More

I completed the 3 hour short game school with Skip Malek and learned so much in a short period of time. Not only did he focus on my short game as expected, but he took the time and interest in my full swing! He provided a notepad so I could take notes to bring home and was able to readily... More
