Janey Deimling
Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada

My name is Janey Deimling. I am 22 years old and I am from Nanaimo BC. I am currently attending the University of Alabama in Birmingham on a golf scholarship. I have just finished my third year in Alabama and over these past three years I have had some of the best experiences in my life. Going to University on a golf scholarship is an awesome way to get an education while playing golf. I have had so much fun travelling all over the US and playing on the top courses. I have met so many different people and made so many new friends. I would fully recommend it to anyone who is thinking about trying for a scholarship.

I began working with Brent last summer and it has been a tremendous experience. I have worked with many different people all over British Columbia but I have never met anyone who has taken the time to actually make sure that I understand the golf swing and the reasons behind why we are changing things. This is particularly important for me being that I leave for eight months out of the year to go to school. I have not found anyone in Alabama that can teach the technical side of the swing like Brent.

During the school year, I video my swing and send it to Brent. He takes the time to work with me over the phone and by email. I really appreciate Brent's dedication to me, which has greatly improved my game. Brent also has all kinds of computer programs and cameras that he can use to analyze my swing and then send me pictures back with lines drawn and even an audio section where he explains what I am doing wrong and how I can fix it. Brent has so much knowledge about the game of golf and the swing and he is continually expanding that knowledge by books and videos. I am always amazed when I ask him what is going wrong and he can tell me after one swing or one stoke of a putt.

The thing that attracted me to Brent more than his knowledge, teaching aids, and the facility was just his character. Brent has a heart of gold and truly loves what he does and it shows everyday. In the year I have been working with him I have yet to see him in a bad mood or even be negative. Its obvious that he isn't just in this for the money or recognition as many other teachers are. Brent takes the time to get to know each of his students and find out their learning styles and the best way to teach them. If one way doesn't work he always has another one. There have been times when I have been trying to master one part of my swing and I keep working but just can't get one move. Brent never wrote me off but kept devising new ways to get me to feel the proper positions and eventually we found one that worked.

I have seen numerous teachers who have one prize student that they devote most of their time to and give more attention to and other teachers who watch the clock and charge by the minute. I have never once seen these behaviours out of Brent. He truly cares about each of his students and never fails to spend time with each and every one of them when he is around.

I only wish that I had been involved in the golf academy when I was in high school. I think it is just an amazing opportunity for young people and would recommend it to anyone serious about getting to the next level.
