Are you satisfied with your golf game?  Are you having fun?  Or are you frustrated and spinning trying to find a direction that actually produces positive results??

Let PGA of America Master Professional in Teaching Brad Clayton help you and he will personally guarantee that one of his Learning Programs will get you lasting, positive results!

PGA of America Master Professional in Teaching Brad Clayton does not use excessive technology. He does utilize video so you can see what he sees, a few simple training aides to help you feel and see what he would like for you to do, and a multitude of drills that will help any player see, feel, and apply what he feels you should be doing.

Read what people are saying about Brad:

I’ve been playing golf for 20 years and was a pretty good player but wasn’t a consistent ball striker and I really didn’t know much about the game on a fundamental level. I didn’t really have an understanding of how the body is supposed to move in the golf swing. Back and through. Keep it simple. That’s exactly how Brad Clayton’s approach to teaching the game is. I’ve learned more about my swing in the little time I’ve spent with Brad then I did over those 20 years. Just wish I would have found him sooner!

Brad is the best teacher I have ever had. I’ve taken lessons on and off for years and never have I learned to hit a golf ball so well. I can’t speak highly enough about Brad and his demeanor, his patience in teaching, and his singular ability to keep drilling down the fundamentals until it ‘sinks in.’ He knows how to stay positive and understands where you are in your game as he brings you along to being able to control the swing. He uses video analysis as well as his keen eye for swing flaws to get you where you need to be to hit the ball more consistently. My handicap has fallen quickly under his instruction. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Brad does a great job in explaining the basics of the golf swing with simple and easy methods and drills. He has an easy but strict approach in making sure you understand the basics. He constantly reviewed and dissected my progress during each lesson and explained the reason(s) why the shot was good or bad. He is passionate about the game and eager to see you do well. My game has improved significantly and I have no doubt who is to “blame.”

The best hands down. I’ve had many lessons before in the past but nothing like this. I wish I would have found Brad sooner I would have saved lots of headaches and frustration; not to mention wasted time and money. His methods are straightforward, easy and simple. There is nothing complicated about his methods. If you follow his instruction and do the drills you will see amazing results in as little as 6 weeks. I can’t thank Brad enough for what he’s done to my game. I highly recommend Brad to anyone looking to improve their game to a whole new level.

Brad Clayton’s PuzzleDuck Golf offers golf instruction for players of all skill levels and desires.  From the raw beginner to the tour professional,  Brad offers golf instruction in North  and South Carolina with customized programs to suit everyone’s golf learning needs:

A single lesson will help a player confident with his/her swing, but who would like a refresher, a diagnosis and prognosis, or to improve one specific area of the game (putting, trouble, pitching, bunkers, pre shot routine and commitment, why the ball goes where it goes – ball flight laws, how to practice, etc).

If lasting positive results on your full swing are desired, a single lesson is rarely enough time to address all adjustments needed to create consistency that lasts…A Learning Program  however, will give you an opportunity to apply adjustments in a sequential manner that builds a repetitive efficient swing over time that lasts….The more commitment, the less expensive and the more time to create a clear, effective, and efficient golf swing….

  • Adults 18 and over $150
  • Juniors 17 and under $130

Playing lessons are often overlooked. It is very important to learn how to better PLAY the game rather than always focusing on simply hitting balls from a nice flat lie on the range with a basket full of mulligans. A playing lesson will help you become more efficient in – managing your game, strategy, shot selection, club selection, and help you gain more knowledge about the rules and etiquette necessary to play golf as it should be played. I can not stress enough the benefit of these lessons and urge you to include at least one in your Learning Program, no matter on what level you are as a player.

  • Adult $225
  • Junior $190

True golf swing and game improvement takes time…there is no magic potion.  Therefore…to reward those prepared to make the commitment of TRULY improving their game…I give a significant price advantage.  The more the commitment ….the greater the percentage of savings.  These Programs will be tailored to meet your needs and desires.
