Ashlee Claydon
Parksville, B.C., Canada

My name is Ashlee, I'm from Parksville, B.C. and I am 21 years old. I took up the game of golf when my boyfriend introduced me to it about two and a half years ago. At the time I just played for fun and hit some balls around occasionally with my boyfriend, nothing serious. It was only since last November when I chose to see Brent that I decided to switch on my game to the competitive level.

Brent restructured my swing in November of last year. I drove home on weekends from College in Victoria with my boyfriend and together we took private lessons from Brent. Throughout the time I took these lessons I noticed significant changes in my swing. Each time I saw Brent my swing felt different, sometimes worse and sometimes better. For about 6 months I could not hit a golf ball; I was awful! However, it was all part of the plan. "You have to get worse before you get better", is what I was told. It was a very frustrating 6 months, not being able to hit a solid shot, shanking them dead right and left and my mentality was being tested.

I have a lot of desire to improve my golf game and many times I thought about quitting when I just couldn't get it. However, Brent always seems to know how to encourage me to keep up the hard work. He knows I have desire to play and I just want to be good so bad! Sometimes it hurts me because I actually try too hard, but for the most part it is what keeps me coming back for more.

Brent is one of the few teachers who knows how I learn. He knows I learn by feel so he accommodates that. We have a good relationship and I can tell him how I feel at any time and he will always have a positive response for me. Brent is an unreal golfer; he can show and shape every shot there is. It is always extremely helpful to have a teacher who is good at demonstrations, who can hit whatever shot you ask him to. Brent is an excellent mentor to anyone out there wanting to improve their game.

Recently in the last few months my game has reached the next level. I am presently attending Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis, Missouri on a full Golf scholarship. Brent helped me to make tremendous life decisions and pushed me to follow my dreams. I am grateful for that, since this is my dream, to take my game as far as I can. I have never felt solid ball striking until now and it is a great feeling I must say, to finally accomplish the goal you have been working so hard to reach!

I recommend Brent to anyone wanting to take their game to the next level. His golf academy is by far the best atmosphere to be in when you are trying to focus and improve your game. Brent's academy is loads of fun, hard work, practice and rewards.
