Praise for Steve Kirkpatrick:

The Pocket Caddy is the perfect gift for family members, friends and customers. This quick reference guide explains common faults and shot problems in simple terms and the illustrations are great. It is the closest thing to having your own personal instructor on the practice tee with you.”
Mike Riley

“I was losing a lot of shots chipping around the green. I would either skull them way past my target or come up short. I read Steve’s Pocket Caddy Quick Reference Guide, Chapter 14 on chipping, then went to practice his tips for 1 hour. By the end of my practice I was so happy. I had corrected the problem – chipped 1 shot in the hole and all the shots were makeable putts! Thanks Steve.”
Joni Kies

“I began trying to play golf in earnest in 1995. I took a number of lessons from a well-established PGA instructor and made good progress. His teaching style was to emphasize the use of video compared to various touring pros’ swing styles. I always had trouble trying to understand how to do this. I was introduced to Steve Kirkpatrick about 5 years ago. Steve has worked to help me improve my personal swing style. I have discovered that it is much easier for me to apply his teaching because he focuses on the feel of the club and the swing. My enjoyment of the game has improved significantly since working with Steve. Steve is a great golf instructor and has become a personal friend. Please give him a try!”
Mike Flanagan

“I have known Steve Kirkpatrick for over 25 years. Appropriately, we met on the golf course in Augusta, Georgia. Fortunately for me, our friendship grew, and I began to know Steve as an accomplished golfer—but more as a genuinely caring and giving person. Steve’s determination, hard work, and love of the game over the years have culminated in his writing of The Dimpled Sphere where he shares his experience and insights to help beginning and avid golfers. Golfers will benefit from reading this book and will want to share it with a friend, spouse or child to help them become a more accomplished golfer.”
Tom Marble — Colleague

“Hi Steve – Thanks again for the lesson sessions you provided last week for a few of us here on Palisade Drive. Today was the first chance I had to go see if I learned anything. All went well – I played the whole driving range @ WindTree and didn’t hit a single ball out of bounds!!!!

Seriously – I concentrated on my grip, grip pressure, swing speed, and scuff marks for ball placement and was very pleased with the results. Today was the first time I had hit my new clubs with the exception of the 7 iron and along with your lessons, what a pleasant change.

I have taken numerous lessons over the years and out of all, I really enjoyed your lessons and teaching methods the most.

Hopefully I can retain all you taught and this summer will be rewarding. I am looking to take 10 strokes of my score as the first target.

Thanks again!”

“Our family would recommend Steve to all! He has helped my husband and daughter with their games for the past four years. Steve has great patience and a natural ability to teach. Steve is not only our teacher but has become a friend of our family.”
Corina Evans

“Just wanted to say after one lesson last fall; I have improved from mid 90’s to my first hole n one and two rounds @ 80. You just changed my grip. Thanks for the change!”
Richard L. Jarrett

“I wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying my new Ping irons. Before I came to see you I was struggling and shooting in the upper 90’s. After several rounds I am back in the lower 80’s and have a confidence I’ve never had with my irons. I may even break 80 this year!”
Laura Hodge

“Thanks so much for the lesson. What a difference in my irons today! Feeling the clubhead is a great swing thought plus when I hit a bad iron I knew why. I finished with back to back birdies with flushed 8 and 9 irons. Thanks again.”
