I have taken lessons with Butch Harmon and my son was at IMG with David Leadbetter, I have gone to clinics and work on my game for 20 years, my best years were 2009-2010 when I shot 71, 69 twice and once 68. Then I went through a Divorce and seems to lose my way, and started shooting over 100 it was a nightmare and I learned to hate the game. I stopped playing for 3 years.
One month ago I decide to buy a set of clubs again and take it up, I enrolled John as my instructor and was impressed from the moment I met him. He is far more intelligent than any instructor I met, when it comes to get you quick results, slowly if that makes sense. How? he first observes and then breaks down the first thing for you to work on. Then he groves that for a few days and then gives you the next piece. His vision for the completed swing is Brilliant. After my 5th lesson( only) I went out and shot 81. But what is most impressive to me was that I hit 9 fairways, I have never hit more than 8 even when I snot 68, even my sand game is better due to the fundamentals of my swing being solid.
As a coach, speaker, Author, trainer, and transformer of lives I can appreciate the wisdom that John put into taking me from a- terrible swing and elegantly to what today excites me to get out there. My confidence is up, my enjoyment level puts a smile on my face and John's calm and generous voice of encouragement is my head on every swing.

"John really helped me understand my golf swing and how to become more consistent. When we started working together I was ranked 100th on LPGA Tour in GIR. The following year I ranked 19th and hit over 70% of greens. His expertise helped me become a better player."

"After playing golf for forty-five years I finally decided to give it up, as my game got progressively worse over the years. After an eight year layoff and retirement I decided to take it up again. This time I would start over and try to develop a new swing. I began taking lessons from John. It took the better part of six months to change my swing plane and work out the rust. With John's encouragement I was fitted for new clubs and at 71 years of age my distances have increased and my handicap is 17, which was where it was when I was 40. I still need an occasional tune-up, but I've found golf to be fun again, thanks to John."

"As a resident of Hong Kong, I came across to have known John by coincidence during one of my business trips. I gave it a try and comparing to other instructors I was so overwhelmed by the difference in teaching methods, personal approach, error detections and 'spot on' fixes to my swing with a never ending patience. My score has significantly dropped to a single digit handicap within a year. I travel multiple times a year all the way from Asia just to be able to work with John."

"I call John The Magic Man. He has been my instructor for over 10 years. Not only does John have the ability to immediately identify swing flaws, he provides drills which quickly eliminate the flaws - Magic! John is a patient and gifted teacher with a great sense of humor. I'm a visual learner and John's use of media is so helpful. Several times during the lesson I can review my swing on video. After the lesson John emails video of my swing: before-and-after instruction, with voice-over comments to remind me of the correct positions. The best testimonial I can give is I have shaved 9 stokes off my handicap. Thank you my PGA Professional John Stahlschmidt!!!"

"John is very easy to work with and cares a lot about his clients. It feels good to have a swing coach to check up on me and see how I am doing because I have always struggled in the past with swing coaches who were not as engaging. I feel John has really helped me improve my swing."
