“Todd Jones is fantastic. He is able to convey complicated concepts in simple terms. I have been a single digit handicap for over 25 years and Todd was able to quickly point out the flaws in my swing and demonstrate them with video and technology. He also had very simple solutions that made sense and fit my situation. I have taken a lot of lessons over the years and this is one of the first times I have not gotten the “one size fits all” approach. The facility is also top notch and everyone there is super friendly. I will be back for sure.”
