Hear what other's think
"When you have a son who approaches every sport with huge trepidation, mainly because of his own fear of failure, largely attributable to the fact he has ADHD, I was nervous beyond all belief about him going to golf coaching. I needn’t have been. Shay was a professional on every level – he clearly understands how to teach children, but also children who need to be taught in a different way. He was patient, kind, empathetic, understanding and motivating. Rare and unbelievably effective skills. I saw my child grow in confidence and ability in the short time we had with him. He was literally knocking the ball out of the park at the end. I am so glad that there are sports coaches out there like Shay, who can coach the individual as well as the sport. Magical."
