Beyond the extensive club fitting options, the instruction is phenomenal at TGI. It's one thing to play well, but it's real art to be able to diagnosis someone else's swing and in a very empathetic way make corrections. Parker and Damon are masters at suggesting fixes gently, a little at a time, in a way that its highly effective. In fact, I brought my infrequent-golfer wife and teenage sons out and they have been hitting the ball better, and developing more interest in the game, than ever before. I've taken a lot of lessons, sports and music, over the years. Parker and Damon are gifted teachers. If you want to get better, get out there, Now!
After many instructors I turned to Parker Parsons at The Golf Institute at Lake Presidential who came highly recommended. Parker has been training my son to prepare him for high school golf. Parker is completely focused on the game, however makes it fun to keep my 13 year old interested and wanting to come back for more each week. He continues to improve each week with great results. The technology used at The Golf Institute is amazing and quickly highlights areas for improvement. The facility is very clean and orderly and great for training in any weather conditions. I highly recommend Parker at The Golf Institute.
Scheduled myself with "The Golf Institute" last month, Apr 2014, for swing analysis and club fitting. In working with "Parker", the first item was to diagnose my swing. What he provided was NOT insignificant. First round of golf following the "correction" was a 78 and my index is 13! Was I pleased and confident going forward. Subsequently, have taken two associates to The Institute and we all three went through the TaylorMade 3D "MAT-T" system with Parker. Unbelievable, anyone serious about their game should take advantage of this techno capability with Parker - the combination will improve your game immediately and significantly.
I have been working with Parker on my game for the past year and there has been a marked improvement in my game. I had a number of flaws and an inconsistent swing. Through Parker's direction and hands on approach I'm building a solid foundation, an understanding on how to improve. He's given me the confidence to help achieve my goal of becoming a single digit hcp.

If you play golf today it's a must you take advantage of the MAT-T custom fitting/swing analysis system at the Lake Presidential. It would take you more than a good year to figure out what Parker can disect and in a few hours. He helps you become your own swing manager and fix it when you need to, while playing. If this system is good enough for today's Tour players then why not you? We all have our own finger print/DNA in our golf swings and it takes milli-secs to execute it. Get it right w/ MAT-T and the expertise of Parker and Damon.

I began taking lessons at the Institute and have been doing so on and off for nearly a year. Over that time Parker has passed on priceless amounts of knowledge that have enabled me to drastically improve the overall performance of my swing, added many more "shots to my bag", and taken a slew of strokes off my card. The Golf Institute's MAT-T system is an unbelievable tool for custom fitting and swing analysis. The critical numerical data supplied is priceless!
