    Ok, here was Chris this summer after many sessions with Kelvin online and then a face to face lesson at West Point.
    Chris has won his last 3 tournaments in USKIDS 12 year old division and is really hitting the ball great.

    I also took some inspiration from Kelvin's training aids and built a device that set his hands nicely at the top of the swing. Chris also works with the speedchain, impact snap and the lag trainer by Kelvin. What a difference it has made with his ballstriking!

    Ok, this was Chris in May before meeting Kelvin in person at West Point CC. He is getting much better and more consistent.

    Thanks, Pat!

    Great to see the progress in both the swings and tournament results! A lot of good information in those videos for everyone to learn from. Tell Chris congratulations!

    Christopher wins at East Mountain CC USKIDS 12 yr old division by 8 shots with an 83 for his 4th victory in a row. Birdied 1 and 18 and had one tough hole with a triple. He is swinging great and had 2 pars on long par 3 holes hitting a driver each time! Thanks Kelvin

    Quick update - Chris has now won 6 tournaments in a row. He won this past Saturday by 5 shots with an 84 at Blue Fox Run CC in Ct. His ball striking was solid and his consistency wore his playing partners down. Next week is the final tournament to decide the champion of the fall series for USKids. Then Chris will be working indoors for the winter with some more expert guidance from Kelvin!!

    Chris won his 7th tournament in a row and was named player of the year. It was a great day highlighted by an eagle on the 10th hole when he holed a 147 yd 5 wood! When I told him he would hit a 9 iron that far someday, he said," I will tear up this course then!." Name:  Chris golf player of the year.jpg

    Chris went to PGA Superstore and tested drivers. The pro was shocked that Chris consistently had a smash factor of 1.47 using adult drivers that he just picked up for the first time. Thanks Kelvin!

    Christopher has qualified for the 2013 USKIDS Teen Worlchampionship at Pinehurst this summer. He will play in the 13 year old division. He has committed to the Spring NJ USKIDS tour and will also be in the NY MET Junior tour, both for 13-14 year olds. Christopher has now broken 5 ft tall and is now looking to get over 100 lbs this summer. Thanks Jeff and Kelvin!

    Chris is really doing well. Hitting it far, avg 270 yds. He is 5' 9" tall and 135 lbs. Starting varsity for 2 years in HS and he is a sophomore now. His handicap is a 3 and his ball striking keeps getting better. I will post some video soon. Thanks Miles for asking.
