I asked Richard to organize and conduct our annual customer golf outing. Not only did he improve the play of all the golfers but our customers told us it was the highlight of the outing. Richard’s simple methods and great attitude make him a perfect fit with any group. The customers definitely want Richard back next year and I agree.

I had the chance to play golf with Richard a few months go in Dublin. While playing golf with him I was amazed at the way he was able to succinctly explain the method behind his impressive ball striking.The effect on my game from a short lesson on the driving range was astounding. The day was inspiration enough to come to Chicago to take part in one of his golf schools.
A couple of weeks later a work colleague and I participated in a full day session with Richard. Wow is all I can say! To say we got a lot out of the day is a total under statement. In just one day Richard has improved my game more than the 30 or so lessons I have taken this year. I have been 12 handicap for most of my golfing career and am consistently shooting in the 70's after my time in Chicago. Richard certainly is a talented man!

I had the chance work to with Richard for several weeks last summer (2010). His knowledge of the bio-mechanics of the swing are world class. The information and analysis he provided was a major part of my success in the months that followed. Private Instruction Testimonials

Richard is an exceptional instructor who is able to translate the highly complex art of swinging a golf club into an easy to undertand and execute event. I highly recommend Richard.

I have had the opportunity to make use of Richard as a Golf instructor on a few occasions. The results were excellent, as he has the ability to "keep it simple" and "understandable" vs over analyzing and being complicated. This past summer, I played to the lowest handicap ever, I have no doubt it was due in large part to Richards great teaching. I highly recommend him.

Richard Franklin is a young golf professional who takes his clinics seriously. I have been surprised by his technical proficiency and his ability to communicate suggestions to improve my game. The unique experience of his golf school shattered my pre-existing, convoluted concepts on the swing and replaced them with easy to understand concepts. My golf swing has never felt better and easier to repeat.

I have private lessons with golf professionals in various parts of the world. I was extremely impressed with Richard's unique technical ability coupled with a very affable yet professional manner. He has a great combination of skills and personality which should put him well ahead of the pack. I would recommend Richard unreservedly.

Richard took my two sons (ages 9 & 12) who were complete novices and transformed them into competent, young junior golfers. They participated in his 3 week summer program and each day they returned home and commented on how their day was “great”! Richard has a special teaching talent, but more importantly in regard to my sons, the ability to relate to and develop young talent in a positive environment. His focus on the complete game, including rules and etiquette, is what makes his program complete. I would highly recommend it and plan on participating in his future programs.

As our son Nick prepared to tryout for the high school golf team, we enrolled him in Richard's Junior Summer Golf Camp. The camp not only gave Nick the skills he needed to be competitive, but also established a disciplined approach to maximizing his practice time. The camp covered all aspects of the game and the improvement was very noticeable. Richard brings a good balance of learning, discipline and fun to the camps. We were all quite excited when Nick succeeded in making the team! Thanks!
