"Matt Smith is one of the best swing instructors I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. After being a student of Matt's for roughly 10 years, I became an NCAA college golf coach. I have recruited many of his players. I have also had the pleasure of coaching a handful of Matt's students on the collegiate level. They are some of the most technically educated players I have ever worked with. Matt teaches his students how to truly own their swing. I would argue more importantly though, how to score on a course. As a student and now colleague of Matt Smith, I could not recommend a more genuine, caring, and talented instructor and person."
