"I just wanted you to know that I went out today and played reasonably well - I credit it to some of the expert observations and recommendations that you made last evening during our Play with the Pro excursion. Thought you might want to know. Best regards"- Lillian F.
"Erika, I just wanted you to know from me how much I appreciate the attention and help you gave to Ann this week at her lesson with you. She thoroughly enjoyed the lesson, your swing thoughts, and enjoyed your personality and personal attention. She was excited about what she had learned and how she had learned it, and couldn’t wait to get out to the golf course to practice these things. She is greatly looking forward to her follow up lessons. Thanks again, and YES, I am very glad that we chose you. We will definitely keep you in mind when we hear of others who are looking for lessons. All the best …" - Curt
"Thank you so much for the golf camp. Our boys really enjoyed the camp and looked forward to going every day. The drills and instruction were presented in a fun and useful way the kids could benefit from and enjoy. We took them out and played a round this past weekend. After one week of your camp, they were able to manage their game, make adjustments as needed and play with confidence. The game of golf can be challenging for beginners and can put people off if they struggle when learning. Our boys played well enough to enjoy the game and see the golf course as the challenge. We could watch as proud parents while focusing on our own games. Thank you" Clay and Eden Hunton
“First, great meeting you on Saturday. Mary (and her dad) is excited about working with you. We look forward to her continued growth in the sport and I look forward to the day she takes “my money”. We played Sunday and she tried the suggestions you made with posture - - had some great shots. Still has some tendency to have a weak cut on her ball flight. Know it takes time, practice and strength training. We will do our part to help her and you with her goals. "- Mike B.
"WOW...I hit balls twice today...the first time, it took me about 5 balls before I could hit it correct...could not hit the woods or driver. Then a friend calls me about 4 to let me know he was going to hit balls, so here I go a second time today. This time, I could not miss. I nailed the 100 yard marker over and over again and then went on to hit the 4 iron, 3 wood and driver. My friend stop hitting and wanted to know what drugs I was on...he has no idea I'm taking lessons from the best person in the world...is it a bad thing to say I LOVE YOU? I'll even tell Mike that I love you...just think, this is after one full lesson. I hope I'm not getting ahead of myself, but WOW...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU...I'm not telling any of my golf friends until I take more money from them..............(one week later)... Erika, I played at Kastle Greens yesterday and started off very slow...3 over only after two holes...then went 2 under for the next seven to finish 1 over after nine...HOLY **** I was on. Then the heat got to me and the next nine went seven over par for a sweet 80, yes I said 80. My best round ever. EVER. I did tell you that I LOVE YOU, right? What would my life be without you in it? THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU....- Lawrence M.
"Thanks for the videos Erika. I do see what you are talking about and worked on it today at the practice range. Your recaps of the lessons are great because I pull out my iPod on the range and go over it right there. I am really happy with the progress I have made working with you. Switching to you was one of the best decisions I have made this year. I look forward to Tuesday." -Missy
"Last night my drives returned, plus some! On all straight-away fairways I hit 200+! My short iron shots were great and I was reaching the greens. Thanks again for taking the time. My game is starting to come together !" -Donna W.
"Carl enjoyed his lesson and also enjoyed playing the back nine after. All he talked about was how food of a teacher you are and how you changed his swing. He can't wait for camp in two weeks." -Lawrence M.
"These past five years we've been working together have flown by so quickly, and I'm completely thankful for all the hard work you've been putting into making my golf swing the way it is today. My game has dropped twenty strokes since we started working together. From that first lesson, I've learned how small mistakes can make the biggest impacts in the golf swing, whether it's grip, set up, or one's aim. I've learned how to tell whether my hands are coming through the ball, my swing path, and how steep my golf swing is at any given point. I don't think any of this would have been possible without all the countless hours that we spent working whether in sun, wind, or even rain. " -A.S.
"Erika I am happy to say that some of the things you have shown me are paying off. I am hitting everything better and had six one putts the other day.."- Larry D.
"Erika, thanks for the videos. Something must be clicking for I had my best round ever on Saturday here at The Currituck Club on the NC OBX."-Bufford L.
"Erika, Just a quick note to say ‘Thanks’ for a wonderful lesson. I haven’t had many (lessons) and you can no doubt see that from my swing but I just wanted you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed working with you that afternoon and the video was and hopefully will continue to be inspirationally helpful. Breaking old habits isn’t easy but I’m determined to do so and hopefully in a few weeks we can have another video lesson to see if what I’m working on is correct and working. Ciao, Mickey. F. "
"Erika, Our kids truly enjoy their interaction with you and the junior program... " -Chris S.
"Hi Erika: Thanks for sending the results of the Interclub season. Peter really enjoyed playing, and I think this was a good way for him to "get into" golf this summer! Thanks for all your organizing, encouraging, and teaching. Thanks again for all you do." - Janice
"Since the clinic, I have joined the Game Improvement Center in Warrenton. They have an unlimited driving range package. I have been out there consistently since that Sunday and am seeing improvement. I'm shopping for a set of clubs now and intend on getting some lessons later in the Fall. You will be hearing from me. You were a great influence." - Lori P.
"All the things you showed me are paying off..If you remember I came to you with problems with my irons. Today I was down one hole on the 17th and my second shot was 125 over water. I took my 8 iron put the ball back in my stance and landed 8 feet from the pin pared the hole and won the match on the 18th. Larry"
"Played in a senior tourney at Herndon on Sunday - shot 84. 45 front/39 back. Couldn't have done it without your expert teaching." - Jim B.
“I got a lot out of our session last week and have started the exercises. Thanks for the help." Charlie
"Erika, Thanks for making my lesson fun and your encouraging words. I am once again enthusiastic about our trip to SC in hopes of not totally stinking up the golf courses. You have a nice way of teaching -- making it simple and understandable. I look forward to fine tuning my game in the Spring." - Gayle
"Thank you all for your help and expertise at the Women on Course outing on Wednesday...you were fabulous and the women really enjoyed meeting you." -Donna C.
"Thank you so much for the golf instruction. It definitely helped my game ( even though I still miss hit shots) but at least I understand what Im doing wrong. The video was a big help. I have been playing better and I have more confidence in my swing. It is definitely a game of constant learning and practicing. Thanks again,"- Nancy
"Many thanks for your great suggestions! I plan to keep a copy in my locker to use when I practice. I thoroughly enjoyed your golf school; your instruction was clear, concise, and right on target, and despite the heat, you made it fun and very informative! We had a great group, so it was an added pleasure to get to know some other members. I have already recommended your 3 day school to several people who seemed interested, so I'm sure you would have some enthusiastic students for the fall!" - Donna G.
"Erika, Thanks for the notes. I made my own notes after each session, but it's really good to have yours. I have viewed the video, but I need to go back and make some of my own notes from it. The first couple of times I played after the school were not very memorable, but yesterday I hit the ball quite a bit better and I was a putting genius. I didn't break 90, but my game was much improved as was my confidence. I played with Dave and we discussed the school. He was impressed with my improvement. Best regards and thanks again," -Bob
"You and Junior Golf have been great for Matt. Thank you very much." Bill and Julie D.
"Thanks you both for an enjoyable, informative and helpful golf experience. I like the format and the level of attention to each individual participant is ideal. I am sure my game will improve as a direct result as will my over all enjoyment. Thanks again," Pete H.
"Thanks again for some awesome! golf instruction support.. You have really helped me change many things with my game and Now for once I can quickly figure out where I went wrong with my golf swing and also go back to some of the important swing idea drills that will bring me back when I go off the track sometimes as I continue to gain better consistency in my game.. I cannot "Thank YOU" enough... You really made a difference in a very disciplined, methodical and supportive approach..."- Robert A.
"I just wanted to drop this note to thank you again for a fantastic putting lesson. I've already started getting mostly 2 putts (and even some 1 putts) instead of the 3 I was routinely getting before. Your help had greatly improved that part of my game. Now, if I can figure out why the rest of it is falling apart, I might be a force to be reckoned with :) Thank you again and I hope to see you soon for another lesson." - Donna S.
