Paul Chamberlain Managing Director

I have taken lessons from many well respected golf professionals in the past, however, I have found Josh to be the best of the best. He was able to simplify and implement changes in my swing that others were not able to do. More importantly, he focuses on the game as a whole knowing the swing is just one part of the game that we all love. By doing so he has made the game so much more enjoyable for me - and my scores have reflected just that.

A huge advantage to Josh is that he is constantly interacting with some of the top teachers on the PGA Tour, and Josh flies to the top national teaching events.

Josh is an outstanding professional. He is able to communicate clearly the fundamentals of the golf swing. He is also great at following up with the students and really cares about improving their game.

George Roberts Co-Founder of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR)

Josh connects with his students. One of my favorite experiences is hiring him for the day or multiple days to work on my entire game. Josh takes a wholistic approach so going on a trip with Josh where he can see my game on the course allows him to truly understand how to coach me. The results have been amazing and lots of fun.

Andrew Wilson CEO of EA Sports

Josh is whip smart, up to date about the most current state of the art information about the game, and is one of the most caring and conscientious people you could ever find.

As a teacher at Stanford myself for 25+ years, I know that individuals definitely have different ways of learning (golf or anything else), but there must be reasons that some teachers are particularly special and somehow resonate with a wide variety of students, each with different learning styles. Josh starts with a very clear framework that completely demystifies golf. He then goes to the next level and helps you understand where YOU fit into that framework, and works with you to devise a plan to attack your weaknesses, and starts with the one or two things to work on that will be the highest yield for you in terms of results/improvement based on effort you put in. Finally, he works with you to help you FEEL the things you are working on so that you can own them yourself.
