Good evening Bob,

Thank you for the time and attention you provided me in February! I didn't know the game could be this fun.Once I recovered from golf purgatory, your voice in my head and very wet conditions at the Presidio my game took off. I'm relaxed, playing with purpose and thinking my way around the course. All of this is thanks to you. I had the time to play plenty including 25 rounds in 23 straight days on 10 different courses. Almost every round in 80's. More good golf followed over the last few weeks. It's been a fun ride I also had a hole in one on Sunday. The first one I have ever witnessed. Can't thank you enough for your excellent teaching. Also when you see your pal from Gears tell Peter the clubs he recommended are perfect….Doug P
