Golf Lesson Reviews & Testimonials
times have you seen those testimonials that are a comment like, "this is the greatest thing I've ever done" George, Topeka Kansas.
Those types of testimonials are
pretty hard to believe. I take our testimonials very seriously. Our testimonials are in the students
own hand writing. They received no incentives or compensation for their

My name is Gary Palis and I am an owner of V1 Digital
Coaching systems. We do golf analysis and are a partner with the PGA of
America and have over 3,000 coaches using the technology. I want to
let you know the Bobby Lopez is right on with the use of technology and
promoting the use of technology to increase lesson business and
activity. Also, the quality of his lessons are a model to use. In
fact, I use some of his lessons when we are doing seminars and
presentations on “Teaching with Technology” because they are good. This
may sound like a strong reference because it is. I would not write
these unless I believed it and we have worked with many, many
instructors so I have a very good base to compare with. Please
contact me anytime by phone or email.

Just a quick note to say how much Jack and I loved our lessons! We
got our cd’s and I laughed at mine out loud! Gee to watch me swing, Im
such a whimp BUT: I did see my self falling away from the ball and have
kept the mental image. Jack and I have not played yet this year, but
as the weather is getting better I am sure we will.
I also learned that Jack’s son Doug Wills took lessons from you too!
We all shared how cool you were and how much we learned. I am sure
Jack and I will see you sometime this year!
Hope all is well with you,
Shot 94 Saturday down from my average 101, but I am still working on
swinging as you taught me. Saturday I was able to hit more fairways and
Thanks for working with us.
You are a great bunch of guys. I really enjoy being around the
range. You keep the program from becoming boring and I have a lot of fun
learning. Thanks Dave
Hi, I once took some lessons from you, way back when you were on
Holland Rd. I just visited your website and clicked around. I thought
I’d give you an update. My game leveled off in the mid 80’s and I just
sort of let it go. Last spring (05) I decided to take a few lessons to
brush up on some things and hopefully regain that edge and possibly
break 80. I took lessons from several different people, but none seemed
to take a personal interest in seeing me get better for the long
term. Oh some captured my swing on the computer and showed me what I was
doing wrong and then told me what to change. But they never told me HOW
to change. Sure I know I am supposed to bring the club down on plane
that is slighty inside to out. But HOW do I achieve it.
Then I found my old instruction book, complete with VHS tape (boy
does that date me) and decided to see what I possibly had
forgotten. Well, something “clicked” and soon I was back on track. This
past summer I posted several scores below 80 and had many 9 holes rounds
that broke 40.
Anyway, I’m looking for a winter program. One that will not only help
maintain my swing, but possibly improve it some more. What do you
Thanks for everything
I heard your ad on WNIS several months ago and had a free video
analysis and intro lesson from you. I was a single digit handicapper
before going in and I was looking for help with consistency and
distance. After the one lesson and with practice, I finally broke par
twice within 1 week. I am regularly shooting in the low to mid 70’s now
and I’m enjoying golf like never before.
My wife and I are celebrating our 25 th wedding anniversary. She
started playing golf about 10 years ago and has a decent swing but lacks
consistency and needs instructions – AS DO I. We’d like to sign up for
the program you wrote down for me – Chris
Just wanted to say thanks for a great time this past Saturday!!! Tons of good advice and of course, just a fun time for all.
Keep up the good work!!!
See ya, Scott and Diane Kincaid
Yes I got in. I really enjoy watching you break down golf swings! I
actually have started working on my own swing just by learning the
fundamentals on your website. Looks like my major problem seems to be a
little over the top move and I get my hands above the plane on the
downswing. I’m playing OK, I’m about a 7 right now, but I used to be a
lot better. Had a 3 quarter swing and used to kill it, then my college
golf coach talked me in to legnthing my swing and things haven’t been
right since. I can’t wait to get started working with you!
Jamie Fielden – The “Birdie Machine”
Many thanks. I really enjoyed it and appreciate the visual imagery as
I tend to think that way. I’m not sure my body will listen to my
brain, but I’ll work the practice to get it to do so. I’m thinking
giving a lesson to my son for his birthday, although he won’t be able to
take advantage of it until he comes back from college in May.
BTW, here’s a video from CNN this weekend that describes some of the
work we do in supporting the Navy and others in ports like DP World
(this video is our operation in Jebel Ali). Glad to hear we are getting
an A+ in the Middle East from the Navy!

A quick word of thanks.
I have been working for years (under many pros) to eliminate a
scooping after impact. I can hit the ball fairly far for a 12.5
factor. Average drive of 250 yards. However, when things go bad they
go very bad. One day I could shoot an 85 at my home course Glen Abbey
and then the next I would shoot 100. Frustrating indeed. On the V1
Monitor pros have diagnosed a “flipping action.” After many drills,
swing breakdowns, swinging out, turn right hand under and a change from
the left to right side I was unable to get rid of the scoop.
This winter I brought my video camera in the basement and began a process of self diagnosis. The following were my conclusions:
1) I need to keep my left arm straight all the way through otherwise the flip was worse; and
2) I need to avoid a reverse pivot.
At a slow speed these two points got rid of the flip but now my right
palm was pointed to the sky. If I went to more than 60% effort it all
broke down again. Enter Bobby Lopez and his right palm left drill. The
words you said that I had not heard before were “start rolling the arms
on the right side (downside) well before impact.” I started to
experiment with this and concluded the left arm needs to stay straight
(not rigid) and needs to act as a rolling post (turning counter
clockwise as I look down at my hand). I am now deliberately turning the
left arm (right arm passive) and I seem to be getting into a perfect
position post impact similar to Ernie Els (he will probably still have
one or two yards on me though). I think of the left arm turning as if
turning a door knob (no side-to-side wrist movement).
In any event, the snow is flying here and I have much time to work on
this. I now have something different to work on and my exasperation
has ended! Great work!!!!
Bobby, I just wanted to take time to Thank you for all the help in
improving my golf game. I was a steady 90s shooter, and before a good
day for me was breaking 90. Well I shot a 79 yesterday, and I know it
wouldn’t have been possible without you guys. I first started taking
lessons with you a couple of years ago, but I never really stuck to the
fundamentals preached by you and Eddie. I always seemed to revert back
to my old tendencies. After much frustration, I finally admitted to
myself that I needed help. That’s when I signed up for the 2 private
lessons and 30 day workshop package. I’ve practiced religiously since
then and finally achieved something I didn’t really think was all
that possible. So for all those who are like me, who think they can
figure out there problems on their own, get a lesson. Believe me, in
the long run you’ll save time & money. Thanks again guys! Joe
