    My primary goal as a teacher of this great game is to give my students the insights and information that will enable them to breakthrough to extraordinary golf.

    My teaching method is a blend of biomechanics and neuroscience, covering both the "what to do" with your body and club, and the "how to do it" with your mental approach to learning, training and performing in golf."

    - Jim Waldron

  • Pro Golfer Slide

    “I learned more about the golf swing and how the game is played in five days with you than I learned in my previous 45 years of reading, instruction and playing. Your knowledge and enthusiasm made for a truly valuable learning experience. Having attended other golf schools and seeing only minor improvement and gaining little real knowledge, I am truly a convert and true disciple of Jim Waldron and the Great Shot! golf school!"

    - Herb Hipsher, Hawaii

  • Two Golfers Slide

    "My ball striking ability has already improved beyond what I had hoped I could ever achieve. I'm making such consistently good contact that my scores are now regularly in the 70"s...I'm gaining at least 10 yards in distance on all of my clubs and am hitting some of the longest drives of my career. Thanks, Jim!"

    - RD Ferren, OR after taking our Great Shot! school

  • Putter Slide

    "Outstanding! I am amazed at your knowledge and your ability to breakdown the golf swing on a physical, mental and emotional level. Thank you for making practice so fun, especially on the range. And thanks for already helping me to realize my potential to play better golf - my short game has already greatly improved."

    - Bob Jalovi, Spokane, WA after attending our Great Shot! and Short Game schools

  • Claire Slide

    "Mr. Waldron – thank you so much for being such a great teacher. You quickly diagnosed by real problem and got my game back on track. Your insights and ability to communicate your concepts has helped my golf game tremendously."
