“As creator of GOLF Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers program, I have been working with the game’s best teachers for many years. Don Peterson’s “Miyagi For Golf” is certainly one of the most creative and comprehensive ideas for improving your game that I have ever seen.”

“When I began to struggle with my swing, I turned to Don to help me turn things around. We worked to make the necessary changes for me to improve. In 2004 I won the Honda Classic, earned Rookie Of The Year, and became Champion Golfer of the year with a playoff victory over Ernie Els in The Open at Royal Troon.”
