I switched early on after 2 years from one pro who had more of interest in anything but the student to Dale. Dale came highly recommended. There was much work to be done, correcting my disastrous swing was the start. On a trip to Europe, Dale had me read a book, The Inner Game of Tennis. I thought this to be rather odd, but after reading it, I understood. Still, my mind gets in the way. Patience, he has a lot of. Golf terminology isn’t my strong suit. Dale has found other terms to help conquer this, enabling us to always move forward towards the next goal. Now 8 years later, he’s still my first line of defense when the mind gets in way. I’ve sat many times after a lesson to watch him with others. From the young inexperienced to the refined accomplished golfer. For these reasons and many more, I now have my son taking lessons with Dale. He is always the first and only person I would recommend.
