Join today to get a better understanding of the game and what swing works best for you. The M-System is my step-by-step skill development plan to help you become a complete player. You’ll start with the basics. Go through video by video. This is truly how I work with students in live teaching formats. Revisit the series in order. Build your skills going from small movements to bigger ones.

If you get stuck, just post your question in the comments section beneath the video. I try to answer member comments a couple times a week. I also select several comments that I think the will benefit the entire community and post a video response in the ASK MIKE section of the site.

The Skill Pathways section offers lessons focused on particular parts of the game if you find that there’s one aspect that you want to focus in on.

Plus there are Player Lessons, which are clips of live instruction on the range or course with students, and there’s Golf Talk, in which I offers perspectives from other instructors, pros, friends, and so on.
