    The best instructors in Chicago.
    I'm looking to take lessons this winter. I need to fix my swing, and work on it at the dome this winter. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of going with Tim Overman at Chicago Style Golf on Grand ave. He seems to know his stuff? I say one of his student's swing and it was solid. I live on the Northwest side of Chicago.

    I took a lesson with one of Todd Sones instructors Jeff Hamilton. He wanted to change my swing completely, which would have taken longer than 6 months to become good at. I don't know if Todd is the same where he wants to overhaul everything? My friend took lessons from Suttie and loved him. I think Suttie works with what you got and fixes it, which would probably fit your time frame. There are other teachers Kevin Weekes at Cog Hill is highly recommended also.
