I started playing Golf 5 1/2 years ago at age 52  . I got so frustrated of shooting 125 + plus ever round for 6 months , I decided to do something about it. So I started taking lesson from Dave Predzin  5 years ago . He has taking me from shooting 125 + to a single digit handicap in 5 years ,using the Single Plane swing. I know I’m a slow learner! Dave has given his all in every lesson I have had with him, I highly recommend Dave to anybody.

Qualification: Hole in One (April 9, 2009), Personal Best Round of 79 (August 10, 2008), Tournament Win (September 8, 2012), Shoot Your Age (July 31, 2013)

I attended the three-day school in 2001 at Eagle Creek in Orlando, Florida. I had only played golf for one year before attending the school and my scores were in the 120’s.
After the three day session with Todd and Tim my scores dropped down into the 90’s. I proceeded to purchase all the training aids and videos, then practiced, practiced and practiced. Now at 82 I’m playing in the mid 80’s.
  • My best round,was a 42-37 = 79 on 8/10/08 at Rockledge Country Club
  • My hole-in-one came on 4/9/09 at The Great Outdoors Golf Club
  • On 9/8/12 I was a member of a four-man team that won the First Methodist Church Tournament at Sherwood Golf Club (I’m asked to play in these team tournaments for my excellent short game, thanks Tim)
  • One other accomplishment, on 7/31/13 at The Walkabout Golf Course I pared the first 8 holes on the back nine, bogeyed 18. With a score of 83, almost shot my age. Tied my best 9-hole score of 37.
Thanks to Swing Like Moe I’m still playing and enjoying golf as a super senior.

Thom Cope – Tuscon, AZ

ThomCHOF Qualification: 2 Holes in One, 50+% handicap reduction, Personal Best Score (77)

I have been using the single plane swing for several years now. I started when it was Natural Golf and even went to a school in Denver hosted by them. In 2011, I had 2 holes in one and back in the late nineties I had my first one using the single plane. I have reduced my handicap from shooting in the 90’s to a USGA handicap of 10.2. It has been under 9 but now I only can play once a week. My personal best of 77 was achieved using the single plane swing.

Dave Briggs – Ravenna, OH

Dave shot a personal best 74 on a course in Kent, OH, not only setting his personal best record, but shooting better than his age by 1!

Gary Simmons – Tifton, GA

Qualification: Hole in One, Handicap Reduction, Personal Best Score

I attended the Orlando Clinic in February of 2008 and had already been introduced to Single Plane Golf by the Natural Golf people. Needless to say, I needed some help. I was probably a 15 handicapper when I attended. I ordered some clubs at the clinic and when I got back home I started working on my game. Later that year I shot my first 72 of my life which was a thrill. My scores continued to tumble and my handicap lowered to a 3 by the spring of 2009 with my lowest lifetime score of 72. During the spring of 2009, I had an incredible weekend. One Friday afternoon, I had 4 birdies and 1 eagle and shot 69 which my lowest score ever and something I never dreamed I would do. Needless to say I won all the money and was fired up for the next round. We played on the following Sunday and all of buddies gained up on me because they said I was in for a fall. I really surprised them that day and had 6 birdies to shoot another 69. Back to back 69’s was an incredible dream come true for me.

In October 2009 I was playing in a Chamber of Commerce tournament and had my first hole-in-one on #14, a 165 yard par 3.
