What Others Are Saying

“Randy has a unique way of tying in both the mental and technical aspects of the game, turning them into a simple, but effective way to improve your golf game. He knows how to raise a player’s game and how to maintain that level. I learned more about my golf swing in one lesson than I have ever know. I would recommend getting lessons from Randy to any golfer of any age.”

AYNSLEE MEYER (FEMALE HIGH SCHOOL STATE QUALIFIER)

“I had fun with Coach Randy. I can’t wait for my next lesson!

TYLER TUBBS (AGE 10)

“Randy took ownership of my golf swing from the beginning. He doesn’t focus on cookie cutter golf swings and completely developed my own swing. We completely broke down my swing and revamped it. Because of his attention to detail, the results came so much faster.”

CASEY JACKSON (WARREN GOLF ASSOCIATION MATCH PLAY CHAMPION)

“Randy is the best teaching professional I have ever worked with. His knowledge of the game of golf showed at each lesson. Many times, he would stop by while I was working on my game outside of our lessons and check on me on his own time. If your game needs help in any area, no matter your age or gender, this guy can help you.”

JOHN PSARAKIS (BLACKTHORN MEMBER)

“Randy has a very good golf brain. He knows everything about the game and has used his knowledge to help me and others become better players. He is a great person, very friendly and creates good relationships with everyone. That’s important in a golf coach because you need somone who teaches well, but also is enjoyable to be around. Randy fits that mold.”
