…Lucas Cohen is an amazing teacher and champion of the game…

I’ve been playing golf since 1986. I was always a “nice” player and able to manage my way around the course with my self-made swing. However, in 2001, I lost my right leg above the knee to infection. I continued to play golf, but never with the same ability. Slowly, my swing evaporated. I blamed my leg and an inability to make a substantial weight shift to my right side. At the beginning of this season, it just got worse and I knew something needed to be done. That’s when I made the smartest move of my golfing life by deciding to take a series of lessons with Lucas Cohen. His attitude from the outset was one of unbridled enthusiasm. The first thing he said to me as I stepped on to the range was: “I am so excited to work with you. I’ve been watching you swing and I am sure I know how to make you a better golfer”. That got me really pumped! Fortunately, Lucas felt my set-up and grip were OK, so we initially went to work on my take-away and backswing. My hand position was all out of whack and I suffered from the dreaded flying right elbow. He wanted my swing to be MUCH much flatter. That first hour lesson went by in a flash. And, amazingly, we never discussed my leg at all. Over the course of the summer, Lucas was able to turn my swing into a repeatable event without all the herky jerky motions I had implemented over the last several years. He worked with me and my abilities rather than trying to squeeze my game into the same formula everyone else uses. I am now drawing the ball (in place of my former weak fade) and have gained at least 25 yards in distance off the tee and an extra club length with my irons. Greens at my club that I never dreamed of hitting, I am reaching in regulation. And, my handicap dropped from a 16 (trending up!) to a solid 12. Four strokes in just 3 months! I cannot wait to see how well we do next season! Lucas Cohen is an amazing teacher and champion of the game of golf. His love for the game comes through in every conversation we have, whether it is about my game in particular, our club or just chatting about the Tour.

…All parts of my game have improved dramatically…

Amazing, after years of poor playing and useless lessons, it was my great fortune to meet Lucas Cohen, a golf pro who can really teach the game and has a great attitude. All parts of my game have improved dramatically and for the first time I know what I’m doing wrong and can quickly correct any poor swings. The most enjoyable part of the lessons was playing 9 holes with Lucas. Just added more dimensions to my game. I highly recommend taking golf lessons from Lucas Cohen. You will not be disappointed.

…He made the game much more enjoyable…

I started playing golf in my early 50’s about 8 or 9 years ago and knew I was never going to be a low handicap player. I shortened my swing to keep the ball straight, however, I sacrificed distance and still the ball didn’t always go straight. Lucas said to me the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. I told Lucas I didn’t want to drastically change my swing and we started with putting, chipping, pitching, irons, woods and driver. Over the course of many lessons he made me understand in laymen’s terms the nature of the golf swing and little by little he had me taking a full swing with a good finish. He made the game much more enjoyable.

…Lucas can articulate thoughts and concepts in a simple way…

In just one summer, Lucas was able to get an entire country club excited about their golf swing. For me specifically, it was the first time I was able to take lessons where I understood what an instructor was trying to have me do, and I saw almost immediate results from his teachings. Lucas has a gift for communication. He clearly understands all aspects of the golf game and can articulate thoughts and concepts in a simple way that anyone can understand. Best of all, I’ve been able to translate my ‘practice’ into on the course play. Because of that, I’ve never been more excited about game and the improvement I’m bound to continue seeing. I highly recommend Lucas to all skill levels and anyone that has an interest in improving their game.

…he combines simplistic instructions with explanations…

I have taken a series of lessons from Lucas Cohen this season and last. He is an excellent teacher combining simplistic instructions with explanations to reinforce the elements of my game that needed fine tuning. I have improved my technique and as a result enjoy a higher level of play. Thank you Lucas!

…I saw immediate results on the course…

After I took your 1 hour lesson I saw immediate results on the course. I have dropped 5 strokes and I’m continuing to work on my balance. Thank you!

…after 1 lesson with Lucas I feel much more confident…

As a beginner golfer I felt as though I was constantly struggling with the correct way to do things. After 1 lesson with Lucas I feel much more confident when I swing and have a very specific approach when I practice. Everything I learned was directly applicable, so much so that I was able to go out on the course the next day and play well. The lesson truly payed off. I plan on going back very soon and would strongly recommend anyone who wants to improve their game to do the same.

…within a few minutes I proceeded to strike the ball consistently…

For me, golf was starting not to be fun anymore. I felt, with the years I have been playing and the amount of time I practice, I should have been better than I was. I was terribly inconsistent with my ball striking and decided to take a lesson with Lucas. First he asked me to hit a few balls to observe my swing. After one fat shot and two thin grounders he stopped me, corrected two fundamental mistakes I was making, and within a few minutes I proceeded to strike the ball consistently and attack the flag in the distance. Even my miss hits were hit well enough to be around the green and playable. I know I have more work to do but I am excited by my vast improvement during my first lesson and am very confident Lucas will continue to help me improve.
