Here's what our Members are saying:
I recently watched your "Mike Austin Takeaway" video. I was struck by your penetrating insights and keen awareness of what was ACTUALLY going on in Austin's swing apart from the misleading observations and
interpretations of others.
Many golf pupils and instructors suffer from what psychologists call "confirmation bias" or "group think." You don't. Congratulations.
I have authored a book, entitled GOLF'S THREE NOBLE TRUTHS (2007), focusing on awareness, balance and unity. I lament, among other things, the woeful lack of growth among most golfers. I assert that there's something seriously wrong with the way golf is currently being taught and learned. Simply put, I smell a rat.
Thus, it's no surprise -- given your rare ability to perceive and think independently -- that you have succeeded in recognizing and teaching the proper bio-mechanics associated with the Mike Austin Swing. How wonderful.
Thank you for your work. I celebrate your efforts. I bow to you. Best wishes!

"Today I went to Steve Pratt for my first lesson to start working on my swing for the 2012 long drive season. Bruce Hamilton, who was Corey Pavin's instructor throughout his major victories and ranked top 100 teachers in the nation who tragically lost his battle with cancer this last year was my coach for the past 16 years. I have had assessments with other instructors throughout Southern California and Steve Pratt is the only one I have had a lesson with who I would compare as a world class teaching professional as Bruce. Let me put it this way, I have never swung with so little effort and had such long straight drives with that high CHS numbers. Also it was in one lesson. Thank you Steve - can't wait to see the future and am greatly looking forward to it. "

"Steve has taught me more about the golf swing, the game of golf, and physics in general, than any other resource available. I've read volumes of books, I get all of the periodically, and I even scoured the internet looking for ways to improve my swing/game. Nothing has compared to my time with him on the range/course and my membership on this site. Steve, you're a gentleman and a scholar of the game. Thank you for helping me achieve my goals and most importantly making the game fun. I love out driving the guys in my foursome.

Absolutely loving the membership on your site. Without even the smallest doubt your web site and the content provided is the single best thing that has ever happened to my golf swing improvement and overall enjoyment of studying and learning about the proper way to swing. My model for my swing back in the day was Greg Norman and his leg work and it served me well.....although I wish I knew more about Austin and the "why". "

"I sent an email to Steve last night with a couple videos. He responded last night and his analysis was very good. The way he can explain moves and compare the golf swing to other sports is impressive. He told me a couple of things to look at, and gave me a couple drills to do. I took it to the range today and it all seemed to click into place.
Steve has a fine website and after only two days of communication with him, I will be picking his brain for as long as I can.

"After an opening round 70 in my last pro tournament, an afternoon session with Steve on the Trackman improved my ball striking tremendously. I went out and shot 66 the next day and made a big check! Steve is THE MAN!"

"I wish I had found your site a few years ago, it could have saved me several years of confusing golf instruction that led me nowhere."

"Steve Pratt!!! My lord, you are not only very professional but you are a great coach that analyzes things to the fullest!!"
- Aaron, Arizona
"I have just joined hititlonger.com and I can't put the laptop down apart from a few practice shots. Because it is early stages I am just concentrating on the spine pendulum for now and already my swing speed is up over 10%. Can't wait to add the other parts of the swing and gain more speed. My accuracy is much better and my body feels relaxed and supple instead of taut and stiff. And it has made a big impact on my pitching and chipping which has always plagued me.

"Steve is unquestionably a guy that needs to be on the short list of great instructors on the planet. It's my great fortune to know him. "
