I also have doubt about his personality, writing a book about his student.
I just completed Lessons at an indoor facility. I came to my instructor with several issues due to my occupation (I have lived in a bucket truck, working for a utility for the last 18 years) . My feet were firmly anchored to the ground, range of motion was ridiculously limited. He slowly worked with each phase of my swing, first getting me to swing more fluidly than I had ever done before. He got my follow through to be much more complete. And finally got my right foot to move correctly after hitting the ball.
Over the last 4 weeks of dedicated practise, I am ready to try this for real. My 'Pro" took what I brought to him and he managed to just adjust me to what I need to do. I watched the Charles Barkley series, and Mr. Haney failed. But he got ratings enough to continue the series. After all, that's what matters on TV, not when we play.
This coming Thursday, I take my newly found "skills" out for the first time. Planning to Tee off about 7:30 am. Forecast: Cold (40 to 50*) and Windy, with a chance of some Rain... But I work out side for a living, I got my first Par in 51 MPH winds... Coldest night I've ever worked was -20* (came home to a cracked foundation of my house, and the gas in my truck was so cold, that it took 10 minutes to drive up a hill that normally takes only about one). And Rain? Nope never got any of that crap on me...
Wish me luck, Any score less than 102, and that ball goes in my Trophy case!
