What our customers say

Steve Henderson

James. I found you on YouTube a few months ago. Loved your videos. I bought your wedge matrix. I just wanted to say thank you. You have completely transformed my short game. It was a weakness and now it is better than most. It has become a strength.

Hi James,I’m a golf teaching professional in Toronto, Canada, and I have followed your content for the past two years. I’m coming back from some serious short game issues (started in 2014), having to rebuild that part of my game completely, and mostly on my own. Your content has really helped me find some great feels, and after a lot of winter work, I’m now hitting the best short wedge shots I’ve ever seen, contact that I’ve never felt before.
