    I have been playing golf for over forty years; my nephew, a high schooler, is just taking up the game. I would like instruction for the both of us that would be valuable for a beginner, and a refresher course for me. Thank you, Paul Pecoraro

    1. Michael Andrusin

      Thanks for the note. Did you get the lastest email lesson blast for April clinics? That may be a good place for you to start. If your nephew is a beginner we might have to work with him in a private lesson. What do you think?

    I took my second “PGA Tune Up” Lesson with Mike today and, just like last year’s tune up, Mike’s invaluable insight,positive coaching style, and knowledgable instruction will no doubt have the same positive impact on loweing my handicap index this year as it.did last year. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who is serious about improving their golf game.
