Neil Laird - Bruntsfield member, Edinburgh
Returning to golf six years ago after many years of absence, I had taken lessons from other golf instructors before I met Eric and I had improved but was still very inconsistent. I could play much better than I used to but would play above my handicap occasionally and awful on many occasions. I have now been taking lessons with Eric for over a year and it is clear his understanding of all aspects of golf is extremely extensive. Eric is a very enthusiastic and hands-on instructor. He teaches a defined swing and his video-computer demonstration is invaluable in seeing the principles behind it and where you are going wrong. I also spent a very pleasant week with Eric and his group in La Manga in Spain last year and would strongly recommend this. Playing with Eric on the course was key to actually finding out what I would do wrong when playing. While I have yet to reduce my handicap, which was probably too high, I now play to within two or three shots of it on virtually every round and saw this very clearly recently when I played St Andrews much better than I had done three years ago.
