I must say that I have had many lessons over the years with some of the
top pros in the country but no one has helped me as much as you have.
You are the first person who has been able to clearly explain the hand
and arm action needed for solid impact.
During my practice sessions you explained to me that proper hand and arm
action causes the body to react correctly during the golf swing, not the
other way around. You very quickly identified the problem areas of my
swing and clearly explained how to fix and simplify my swing.
I didn’t realize it at the time, but over the last several months we
have improved my grip, on-plane club movement, address and ball
square club face setup, wrist cock, arm action and fold, hand pressure
throughout the swing and how it affects club plane and release, club
face angle approaching impact,
follow through action needed for draw or fade, and shaft direction
throughout the swing. You also had me get my clubs checked, and I found out
that they were set too upright. Some were even the wrong length!
thank you very much for all the help you have been giving me
on my golf swing and short game.
Thanks again for all of your help. I am excited to take my new game to
the course this spring!
Sincerely, D. Bird
I have tried
to improve at golf for decades. I have taken numerous lessons, read books,
watched videos and bought lots of new equipment. Nothing changed. I hit weak
fades and scored well only when my short game was clicking.
met Joe Park. He explained the science of the golf stroke. It was a simple
guide to hit the ball at your target. Anyone can hit the ball in the air and
straight at the target. It's science and it’s not rocket science.
think golf is too tough? Does your new driver slice or hook just like last
year’s model? End the frustration and save money with just three words,
“Call Joe Park!”

I rarely give testimonials but will gladly give this one. I only
hope it reveals the gratitude I have for your golf coaching skills.
Since I started late in life (age 60) to begin golf; achieving any
skill at this game always seemed to elude me. I was never able to
make solid contact or develop any power when hitting my shots. I can
not thank you enough for teaching me exactly how to hit a proper
golf shot. I can now play golf with anyone and feel that the
group will not have to slow their play or dampen their golf
enjoyment. I look forward to continue our sessions. I am scoring low
90's currently and feel can get into mid 80's with your help.
I was watching TV and the Pro’s were hitting on the practice range just
before the Masters began. The cameras were panning and the announcers
were pointing out the various Pro’s AND their swing coaches. It was then
that I realized that if the best players in the world rely on swing
coaches, how can I expect to get any better on my own?? I had gone to
Country Air in March prior to taking an annual trip to Palm Desert, CA
at the suggestion of a friend merely to be able to hit outdoors and
watch the full flight of the ball. Before I went there, I was scrolling
through the Country Air website and came across Joe Park’s instruction
page. Impressed with the testimonials, his years of experience, and free
on line tips, I decided it was it was time to sign up. I spent two fun
hours (one each on separate days) with Joe and honestly got about 2
weeks worth of information. He is a master of the golf swing. Forget
about everything you’ve read or heard. He’ll break it down and put it
all back together again in a fundamental yet practical manner that
anyone can understand. He provided basic, practical drills that
reinforced the areas of my swing that need improvement. I saw
improvement after the first lesson and even more at the end of the
second. It was the best thing I’ve ever done to improve the way I strike
the ball! I went from a slight fader to moderate draw and gained
valuable distance as a result. Don’t waste your time trying to teach
yourself, no matter how good you think you are. Go see Joe. It’s time
and money well spent.

Thanks for the video
of my swing Joe. I am 61 years of age, and for the first time
working with someone getting a lesson, the light bulb in my head
finally went on. I am very athletic, and have been able to shoot low
to mid 80's by compensating for my swing. But now, after only 1 and
a half lessons with you, I finally understand how to hit a golf
ball. Thank you Joe.
To Joe Park and
Joe, thank you for the very helpful lessons during the summer. For years
I have struggled with my high handicap golf game. With your great
coaching advice, I have been able to reduce my scores by 16+ strokes and
made golf so much more enjoyable! Thanks for your help and patience.
John G.- Another Joe Park Satisfied Student -
Just wanted to thank you for helping me become a better scoring golfer.
I have enjoyed golf for many years as a recreational player. A high
handicapper who gave not much thought to equipment and swing technique.
But I wanted to improve my scoring and therefore enhance my golf
outings. And that was accomplished by getting a lesson and my swing
analyzed and then custom fitted through Mizuno's performance fitting
system. With my new "fitted to my swing"JPX-800 irons I have felt and
seen the difference in my game. I have longer distance, more control,
and better feel with great ball flight and trajectory. This first full
summer with these fitted irons I have averaged 7 to 9 strokes better.
Thank you soo much. I highly recommend a visit to Joe Park and get
fitted through Mizuno's performance fitting system. .Your game will
greatly improve. I cant wait till next summer!
After one lesson I played the best 3 rounds of my life. Thanks again,
Scott M. -P.S. Call Joe Park
First, I have to say, I’ve been going to County Air due to convenience,
and I have always felt very welcomed, as have my kids. Joe’s family is
wonderful! I was talking with Joe and his wife Nicole one afternoon,
after Joe had watched me hit a few balls, and he said he could change my
game for me. I decided to go for it, hesitantly, I’ll add. I’ve had
lessons in the past, and none of them offered an ‘epiphany’ for me…a
real game changing lesson I had never experienced. I spent just short
of two hours with Joe, and it’s changed my game completely. His
approach is somewhat scientific, somewhat mechanical, and easily
understood, as he treats you like a student…he wanted to make sure I was
understanding what and why. It was a great experience and I can’t tell
you how much I’d advise a lesson from Mr. Park…you’ll leave refreshed
that there is actually HOPE! Thanks Joe and Nicole!
Time to correct bad fundamentals early.
I just spent one of the best times of my golf
life today with a lesson from Joe. Who would have thought that a golf lesson could
be so helpful and fun too. What I walked away with afterwards was more
confidence in my ability to play better golf....Thanks Joe.
Dr. John D., MD Afton, MN
I am a self-made single digit handicapper. I have
never had formal lessons from any licensed professional in 16 years of play.
I have relied on my dad, television programs, and golf magazines to help
hone my golf swing. Then I decided to get a lesson from Joe Park. I went
into the session with an open mind, hoping that Joe's years of teaching and
golf knowledge would reveal an idea that would help take me to the next
level in my golf game. I consistently shoot in the 70's and have become
bored with my scores and wanting to get into the 60's. I knew that
practicing what I already knew would not get me there. The lesson with Joe
was exactly what I needed. Joe showed me things about the golf swing that I
had never heard or seen. He simplified very complex components of the golf
swing and tailored the lesson to my natural abilities. With Joe's teaching I
am progressing to be more consistent with my ball striking and more
confident in my game all together. I truly feel that this will be my best
season yet, and that I will break into the 60's because Joe Park.

I've been frustrated by the game of golf for years.
Joe has made all the difference. He taught me how to consistently hit my
irons and my woods in a way that I'd never thought possible. He has a
wonderful gift for teaching.
I can't wait to bring my son up this summer----and my granddaughter in a few

I have been a customer of the Country Air for the past few years, during
that time I have had the good fortune to get to know Joe and his
family. Between the three or four lessons I have taken from Joe, and
his willingness to share advice w/ me, my game has shown marked improvement.
If golf is a game for life, then I would recommend lessons with Joe Park to
any golfer who is serious about their game.
will fix the
underlying cause of your swing problems, not just treat the symptoms of bad
shots with band aids. Thanks
again for your help Joe, w/ best regards;

Joe, The lesson I
got prior to my golf trip to Florida was invaluable. The simple adjustment you
made in getting me to keep my hands moving through the swing resulted in driving
more tee shots in the fairway, which, led to scores in the mid-80”s and winning
three of four rounds. Needless to say, I had bragging rights on this trip. More
importantly, my fellow golfers made numerous comments about noticing a
difference in my swing/game. Undoubtedly, I have you to thank. My next goal is
to work with you on the short game and putting so that I can consistently report
scores in the low 80’s. Many thanks for your instruction!

“I have taken one lesson with Joe and thanks to his very simple and easy to
follow instructions that worked with my current swing, I am striking the ball
much more solidly and consistently. Most importantly, my ball’s flight path has
a much, much narrower range of direction. He gave me the tools to get my hands
out in front of my body on the downswing in a manner that allows me to compress
the ball with less effort and a much shorter, more efficient and easily
repeatable swing. I highly recommend Joe as a teacher and will use him as my
golf instructor for the rest of my life.”
Scott K. -
My teenage son and I met Joe during one of our off-season visits to his
driving range. My son had been having control issues with his swing, and
had become very frustrated trying to diagnose and correct the problems. We
were both very impressed by how quickly Joe was able to spot the problems,
and how simply he was able to explain and teach the corrections. His
understanding and explanation of the science behind proper golf swing
mechanics is very easy to understand and implement. My son was able to put
Joe’s teaching into practice right away, with immediate improvement and
sense of relief that he finally understood what had been happening. I would
highly recommend Joe as a golf instructor, especially to other parents of
young golfers who are looking for someone they can trust to teach correct
golf mechanics early in a golfer’s development.
I am a weekend golfer who
definitely needed lessons. Joe works with your swing and enhance it to make
it better to keep you comfortable with your swing and is not not like one of
those teachers who impose their swing on you which only takes longer and is
uncomfortable and you forget about it unless you keep taking lessons from
them. Only one lesson from Joe completely changed my swing dynamics. Joe
will show you basic concepts which are missing from your swing. After only a
few modifications I was hitting 20-30 yards farther than I usually hit.
Using his pointers I keep on hitting nice shots. I highly recommend Joe to
be your Golf Instructor.
Here's a quote you could use on your website. "Joe's instruction
really pays off. It includes both conventional concepts as well as new
explanations and ideas that helps each student achieve a quick
execution of a great golf swing." Thanks...
"You are a @#!*% genius. That is the best bucket I have ever
hit. .....No weight shift, ....No roll of the hands and No shoulder
turn. I didn't think of any of these positions and it all just
Thanks for the video. Anyone interested in learning to play this sport
needs to spend some time with you, especially those that want to learn
how to think their way thru a proper shot...Simple drills will get
yourself to thinking a positive shot that in turn will lower your score
and make the game fun for you. I highly recommend that you spend the
time and money to try a session with Joe.
