“Chip is an excellent golf coach. He provides a number of tools that are essential to the success of his students. I have been able to not only benefit from the numerous drills that he has given me, but I have also benefited from the video lessons that we do during our lesson. He is always willing to go above and beyond for his students. Chip has been able to get me to a point where I feel confident with my swing every time I step onto the course. ” – Braden S.
“Chip Inks gets it! I have been playing golf on and off for 40 years. I have taken a few lessons along the way, but continued to find myself struggling. I would hit 1000’s of balls, reinforcing bad habits and not seeing any improvement. Then I stumbled upon Chip Inks. Chip proceeded to break my swing down in understandable segments, he worked from the ground up to undo bad habits and built a new foundation to re-create a better, simpler and more consistent golf swing. He quickly analyzed my needs with the use of video analysis, and worked on simple fixes that I could work on. Now, when I go to the range, I might still hit 1000’s of balls, but every one is with a purpose. Every practice swing has basic and routine fundamentals. I can imagine even years from now, when I go to the range, I will come back to these fundamentals to set my swing on the proper path for consistent golf shots. His words, “Don’t over analyze”, help eliminate unwanted thoughts and years of bad habits. Chip said, “Let’s work on your swing Brett”. Every golfer has a unique swing and the basic fundamental tools he has imparted on me; will allow me to enjoy the game for decades to come. Thank you Chip”. – Brett B.
“Give credit where credit is due. In this case; Chip and the V1 Golf App deserve a vast amount of credit. After being in the golf business for almost 20 years, my swing and golf game had become a mix match of “band-aids” to get me through my round or tournament with little to no success. Now that I have a little more time to play and practice, I am trying to get my game back to a competitive level. I contacted Chip for assistance. Unfortunately, I found out he had recently moved to Florida. However, in typical Chip fashion that wasn’t a problem. He explained to me about his online global golf academy and the V1 golf app for my iPhone. To be honest, I still wasn’t 100% sold but I trusted Chip. I headed to the range to record a few of my swings. The next morning I sent the videos to his online golf academy and by lunch I had the greatest lesson I have ever received. That afternoon, I started working on the drills and swing thoughts that Chip had suggested during the online lesson. The online lesson that he analyzed was just AWESOME!! I could go back and view it or skip to a frame to concentrate on certain swing aspects that needed to be fixed! Chip does such a great job of making you feel like he is right there with you watching you hit each ball. Chip’s teaching experience and golf IQ is off the charts. This wasn’t my first golf lesson with an instructor, but I can honestly say that Chip’s Online Global Golf Academy and V1 Golf App are the real deal! No matter if you are a beginner, weekend warrior, or an accomplished amateur or professional, you can always improve. With Chip and the V1 Golf App, you can do exactly that for your golf swing too!” – Nick S.
“As an amateur level golfer, I was searching for an instructor that would provide me with effective tips on how to improve my game so I am more comfortable playing a round of golf with others. In a single lesson, Chip was able to tweak my swing so that I was hitting straighter and farther – on the first day! There was no obligation to return several times for the marginal progress I was seeking, however, I will be back with the certainty that I will be better after the next lesson. Chip is an excellent instructor whom I would recommend to a golfer at any level looking to improve their game in a short period of time.” – Mike H.
“Chip is a great instructor who provides a full array of tips and technology during a golf lesson. With just a few hours help I was able to truly attack my weaknesses and I have shed a few strokes off my scores already! He will email you videos and audio recordings from each lesson so you can access it at any time. Great guy and I highly recommend him! Does youth clinics as well.” – Patrick M.
“It has been my privilege to have Chip as my personal golf coach for the last couple of years. Through his teaching, my golf game has been elevated to levels that I did not know I was capable. Specifically, Chip’s focus on a solid foundation allowed me to become a more consistent player and would eventually lead me to winning the “SOC Player of the Year” award during my senior year of high school. Without a doubt in my mind, Chip played a significant role in this accomplishment and continues to aid me in sharpening all aspects of my golf game. I would recommend Chip’s professional instruction to any golfer who wishes to unlock their true potential and desires to have more fun playing golf” – Nathan R.
“I’ve worked with Chip for a couple of years now and his instruction has helped me improve my game drastically. Chip has a positive and supportive style of instruction that focuses on building strong fundamentals. His V1 Golf program on his iPad is great. The immediate feedback during the lesson, as well as his recorded instruction received via email is very helpful” – Diane M.
“I have worked with Chip for the past 3 years. He has my swing looking pretty good since that very first lesson, when I looked like Babe Winkleman casting for a prize bluegill. Seriously, my golf game went from shooting 95-100, to an average score of 77. I have even shot par a few times in the last year. The biggest difference has been in my short game, especially with chipping and putting. Chip really simplifies the execution of the proper shot, by concentrating on the fundamentals that are so important in scoring well. If you want an easy going instructor that can really help your game, then work with Chip. Not only is he a great instructor but he is an outstanding person. I will continue to work with Chip for golf success in the future!” – Brian P.
“Before I met Chip, my swing was all over the place and I was too busy trying to be like Phil Mickelson to really focus on my own game. Through working with Chip, I learned not just the fundamentals about posture, grip and alignment, but also how to practice with a purpose. Chip is a great instructor because he quickly finds what skills need adjusted and gives you the proper drills to make corrections. I highly recommend taking a playing lesson with Chip. Our playing lesson together involved Chip observing and playing along with me for 9 holes. This really helped me to see the game in a new way. With Chip’s help, I became a better decision maker on the golf course. Chip motivates his students with passion. The game ultimately becomes more fun. I went from shooting well above 100 to consistently scoring in the high 70’s and low 80’s. He has allowed me to reach goals that I thought were not achievable, such as making it to the high school state golf tournament and playing college golf. I know that Chip can not only make any golfer more successful, but he can make the game of golf more rewarding” Thanks Chip! – Carson F.
“I have known Chip for over 10 years. He is a great instructor and an even better person. When I first worked with Chip I had not been playing golf regularly due to an injury and my handicap was about a 15. In one season, we brought my handicap down to a 10 and I have been as low as a 5 during our time together. Chip’s instruction is not limited to just the golf swing, he has help me with all aspects of my game. Additionally, to having extensive knowledge of the full swing and short game, he is skilled at using today’s technology to further help someone improve their game. I highly recommend Chip as a golf instructor” – Fred R.
“I first started working with Chip about 4 years ago and find his style of instruction to be very effective. As a self taught player, he’s had a tough job trying to “undo” a lot of my swing flaws. His consistent focus on the fundamentals has really helped me to understand my swing, improve my score, and enjoy the game more. Chip uses current technology to video my swing and even compare it to PGA pros” – Tony M.
“If you are practicing with the wrong fundamentals, how can you develop a golf swing that is consistent? – Chip Inks
