Gary possesses a great short game and is called the “short game guru” in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Many students come to him for short game lessons even if they take full swing instruction from someone else.
"I've been playing the game for more than 30 years. About 10 years ago I took some golf lessons with one of the area "Golf Pros". After the second lesson my swing was so messed-up I could barely hit the ball. A couple months ago my wife (knowing how much I love the game) bought one of Gary's golf instruction packages for me. After the third lesson and just two practice sessions, I scored my best 9-hole round of golf ever! I'm hitting the ball longer, straighter, and with much more accuracy and consistency than ever. I have several more lessons still available with my package and expect to shave 10-12 strokes off my typical 88-95 golf score."
