"Like many people I owned golf clubs and played infrequently for many years because of  family and business schedules. I didn’t have time for practice or lessons until about four years ago when I took one lesson each week from Owen Dawson for four weeks in the early spring.

Owen’s thoughtful and patient approach to teaching allowed me to progress from having no golf swing at all to an ability to begin striking the golf ball fairly consistently with good accuracy. Thanks to Owen’s video recordings of each lesson which were easily downloaded to my iPhone, my practice on the driving range was greatly enhanced. I also appreciated Owen’s willingness to reinforce points from our lessons when he saw me practicing. By the end of that season my handicap index had improved from around 31 to 26.

The following spring I took another four week series of lessons from Owen during which we revisited my full swing for improvements after short game shot instruction. The combination of the lessons, practice and the video recordings since then have improved my handicap index to about 18.

Overall, I have enjoyed Owen’s instruction and have experienced notable improvement in my play." James DeGraffenreidt CCofMD 2013

“I have been working with Owen Dawson for the past 7 years. During that time my swing has dramatically changed and improved. This has happened through Owen's drills and use of video. It is because of these techniques, that I understand how to hit good shots but just as importantly why I hit a shot poorly. I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity to work with Owen and would highly recommend him. ” Sam Young - Country Club of Maryland - 2009 Men's Club Champion
