PLAYER TESTIMONIALS

"Tim has been an invaluable asset for my golf game. His knowledge of the golf swing and game are second to none. I'm glad I can call Tim both my swing coach and also a great friend."

- Chris Baker, Web.com TOUR member

"Tim Cooke is the best golf teacher one could hope to work with. A trip to Sea Pines to see him is best $ a golfer could spend!"

- Darian Ibrahim

"My wife Sarah and I traveled up to Hilton head to spend a weekend and work with Tim Cooke. I've been working with him for almost a year and he's led me to my best golf of my career. As for the Inn, we had a great time. The service was top notch and we can't wait to go back. Sea Pines Resort is awesome."

- Justin Hueber - TOUR player

Thank you so much for assisting me to improve my golf game beyond my wildest imagination!! I'm a HUGE Tim Cooke fan! And, I look forward to working with you this spring to continue my improvement on the game I've learned to love so much!

- Linda Maier - Private Coaching Sessions

Just wanted to thank you again for an awesome session on Tuesday. I had a great time working with the two of you and I am really looking forward to taking what I learned from you out onto the course for a few more rounds before the snow hits up here!

- David Soares - Full Swing Evaluation

Thank you for the 3-sessions of instruction while I was in Hilton Head. It amazes me that on 'day one' you were quick to identify that realigning my feet would make a world of difference in my game and get me smack dab in the center of the freeway - each time. You were right!! I appreciate your insights, clear direction and patience in working with me to improve my handicap. My experience with you has created greater confidence. Thank you. I am ready to return home and get out on the course.
