What Others Are Saying...
What others are saying about Carole’s instructional abilities:
Just wanted to share with you a little note about my Blast Motion experience and the putting results I attribute to the little white blob...! After just three days of hitting 25-50 putts with the Blast, I saw immediate and very significant improvements. Here are the metrics/averages after 8 rounds (144 holes) of golf since I got BLASTED:
One 3 putt
73' average total distance of putts made per round (that distance would be top 100 on PGA Tour in 2017).
28 putts per round. 4 birdies per round - up from roughly 2 birdies per round average prior. Handicap index in 15 days moved from a .1 to a +1.2.
"I just wanted you to know that after you left me with the new swing thoughts, I began to hit the ball much better than ever before! Even the driver was long and straight, so I think we’re onto something here. We’ll see how it goes when I play and maybe we can squeeze in another lesson before we head out west for Thanksgiving.
Thanks so much!"

"Really appreciated the Opti Brain training. Think it’s helping, especially on short putts to establish a rhythm which enables me to make a smooth accelerating stroke more often. There’s no question I was stroking the 10-12 footers well when working with you - need to maintain that feel on shorter strokes. Good luck with your continuing work on this very interesting approach. In any event, last three scores have been lower - 81 to 84 - from white tees. Then Sun playing back 9 WF with an old friend excellent golfer 1st time out in 6 mos due to elbow surgery, he hit 18 in two, then I hit 20 yd flop lob wedge from rt side and rolled it in downhill like a putt for an eagle - after parring 6 of 1st 7, before doubling 17 from 55 yds! Anyhow, nice end to season here. Have a nice summer."

“I am an avid tournament golfer and have taken many golf lessons from prominent golf professionals throughout the U.S. Many of the professionals are in the Top 100 category. I now take lessons from Carole Clark of ParXlent Golf and I can say she has helped more than any other teacher. She advises based upon “your swing” and does not try to change everything. She got me to hit the ball more solid, higher and further with a proper shoulder turn. She gratefully did not try to change a back swing flaw I have had my whole life and instead corrected my problems more simply. She continues to improve my game and I have recommended many other tournament and non- tournament golfers (my wife) to her with great results.”

"Thank you for spending time this summer working with me on my golf. Though I had some bad shots in yesterday’s (Club Championship) match, I had some really good ones and I went out there and competed. And that was my goal – I didn’t want to play so poorly as to embarrass myself and I wanted to compete. Thanks to you I feel I am a much improved golfer this year, and starting to feel more comfortable on the course – but I want to continue to get better. I just need to work on driving, chipping, putting, pitching, sand…!"

"I am a 5 handicap golfer who has taken numerous lessons over the last 10 years. Of the various instructors I have used, Carole Clark had the biggest impact on my game. Her methods are simple and straight forward and she doesn’t confuse me with too many swing thoughts. She has a knack for identifying a swing flaw and providing instruction and drills to help correct it. She is very easy to work with and always very positive and encouraging. I am grateful for the time she took to help me out both on my full swing and on my short game. I am still carrying a 36″ ruler for a drill she suggested for my putting. I can recommend Carole without hesitation to golfers at any skill level."

Many thanks. The golf lesson showed instant improvement. Shot a 99 taking a 9 on the 18th of the Wee. Sheer sloppiness. Will try to schedule another date for reinforcement. At my age my memory bank requires that.

Thank YOU Carole! When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Frustrated with my short game last year I set my goals and made a commitment to improving my short game this year. Then you appeared. Your clinics are great. They are just what I needed. I am not just learning the shots of the short game, I am learning about myself and my game. I have come a long way in a very short time thanks to you. In the past two days two people have called me a good putter! Can you imagine? I had to look around to see who they were talking about. It is all about confidence! Can’t wait for Veronica’s seminar. I want the full boat. I am also looking forward to the next on course lesson like we had last week. Please let me know when the next is scheduled.

Carole has helped me love the game of golf again. I once had a much lower handicap then I have now, but due to knee problems my swing was changed to accommodate my physical problem. I played golf pivoting only on my left leg for a few years and then had my knee replaced, very successful operation, but I was struggling to get the right swing back until I met up with Carole. Due to her teaching and coaching my swing is back and it is now a joy not a chore to play. She is an awesome instructor, easy to understand and to facilitate what she is teaching.

Carole has been a great asset in my journey to become a better golfer. She is very knowledgeable in the analysis of an individuals golf swing and can narrow specific points needing help. She has reduced my handicap by 8 strokes. Keep up the great work.

Carole's motivation, drive, and expertise helped develop my golf game, both the physical and psychological aspects. She was always there to help, with creative approaches to blocks I have developed over time. I would highly recommend her for anyone serious about learning in a low pressure high results environment. Oh yeah, enjoyable also!!

Carole is a dedicated professional, recognized by the LPGA and her peers as being top notch. As a manager, she is honest and fair. As a leader in our organization, she is respected by all. The best thing I can say about Carole is that she ALWAYS walks in line with her convictions and carries herself to the highest standard.
