I have a few students from WV, but they're in the northern regions. 5 hours would be a bit too much.
I'm sorry you've had some horrible experiences. I hate - more than you I'd wager - bad golf instructors.
I didn't know that. Of course I didn't read the manual.
Apparently I had it positioned wrong, too. It's suppsed to be facing the direction the swing is coming from slightly, like at a 45° angle, and not perpendicular to the target line as I had it. Not sure how much difference it would actually make, though.
