Phil Mickelson Petition

Many of you may know that I started an online  “Petition” to Pacific Ridge School inquiring to see if there was any way they could potentially change the date/time of the Graduation ceremony so that Phil Mickelson could play in the US Open. To see/sign the “Phil Mickelson Petition” CLICK HERE!

Please know that this is ALL in good fun, as I DO realize how hard this request would be considering how late it is in the proceedings, nor would I want it to cause OTHERS at the event to not be present because of the change. It is/was really a “polite request” to see if maybe a different date or time would be a better fit for the school overall as a whole. Have had a lot of Phil supporters from all over the world reach out, which has been pretty fun. Why not politely ask and see, right?!?! 🙂

Here are a few links to some articles written about the petition:

Due to OVERWHELMING demand and requests from students, players, instructors and social media followers, I’m going to start offering a MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION to get ALL of my secrets I’ve acquired in playing and teaching this great game for a lifetime. I’ve got some VERY strong beliefs and opinions, and as students start to understand the concepts and implement them, their scores start to PLUMMET! For only $9.99/month you will get access to information that I have devoted my life to getting! Videos will be added on a regular basis and NOTHING I have learned will be held back. I CAN’T WAIT to see YOU play the golf of your DREAMS.

The ‘Free” Membership will get you into the game, but the ‘FULL” Membership is where I will spill my golf-knowledge guts out. Just a few finishing touches need to be added (should be ready in the next day or 2), so don’t sign up for the FULL MEMBERSHIP QUITE YET! I will update you all when it’s all ready to go!

Hello my friends! What a GREAT season for golf instruction and at the club! We saw A LOT of students REACH and EXCEED their goals as they put in the work to improve their games! It was a VERY busy season and a great one at that! I will be continuing to teach a LOT this summer, will be hosting the 4 JUNIOR GOLF CAMPS (see previous posts for info), and will be working on a LOT of VIDEOS!!!

Summer time is a GREAT time to work on your game and get onto the course and get a lot of rounds in! Be sure you’re not just spending all your time on the range if you want to improve your SCORING!
