A Word

From the Director

” It might sound corny, but I’ve always believed that by helping golfers play better golf, I’m doing what I can to make the world a better place. If you play better golf, you’ll be in a better mood. You’ll smile more, you’ll be nicer to those around you, and you’ll be happier overall. It’s tough to be in a bad mood after you shoot your all-time best score. Golf Evolution can help get you there. “

– David Wedzik
