Quote from JL Lewis:

"As a PGA Touring Professional, I compete against the best players in the world.  Consequently, I have to keep my game sharp.  Steve Williams has helped me to do this.

I have worked with many of the top golf instructors in the world...I am talking about the best of the best.  In my opinion, I have not found a better instructor anywhere, than Steve.  He is a gifted communicator and his passion for teaching is evident when you hear him speak.

If you seriously want to improve your game, whether you are a touring professional, a weekend golfer or just learning to play golf as a beginner, I suggest you go see Steve.  You will not only learn more about the golf swing and how to play golf to your personal potential, you will have great fun in the process."
