“I am 65 years old and have been playing golf on and off for 40 years. Kristin is a joy to work with and I am so impressed with her teaching skills! She doesn’t complicate the game because she keeps everything simple. She is very knowledgeable and patient even with this “old man.” I am hitting the ball better than I ever have. Now with her input I can practice with a purpose. My goal is to break 90 and my last few rounds have been 94, 92, and 87! I feel I can meet my goal now thanks to Kristin. I so enjoy each and every session! I would recommend her to ANY golfer no matter what their skill level is. Thanks Kristin for a time well spent.” – Bob, Las Vegas
