Back in Caracas, I thank you for your email and I congratulate all of you for your professionalism. I had a terrific time at the Jim McLean Golf Center and really expect to work out on the changes and adjustments of my swing. I will report back to you and Joey any improvement of my game, better sooner than later!!!! Best regards to Joey and Julio and be sure I will stop by Doral as soon as the opportunity comes.
I have been to the practice range about 10 times since you had me change my grip. It is getting to feel comfortable. I can really see a dramatic improvement not only in my full shots but my short game as well. My chipping and bunker play have improved tremendously, also a result of the grip change. Most important, I am getting my consistency back which has made the game fun again. I have recommended you to my golfing buddies. They have all noticed the positive changes in my game.I will definitely get back with you as my game progresses. Thanks again for the excellent instruction.
I think you have a great staff of people there. Everyone has always been very professional and nice to me when I am there. Thank you for allowing me to use the facility, I have had a great experience there. Jeff, Craig, and Victor have really helped me a ton. I feel so much better and I am so grateful to be able to hit golf balls again.
Shot 83 at Rivercrest yesterday. Mostly putting problems. Driver a little offline everything else great. You're a miracle worker. Got some more people coming to see. Call you couple weeks.
My time spent with you and the staff at Jim McLean has been most enjoyable, fun, and educational. I have worked with Joey for over 2 years now, and my GHIN has dropped from 14-15 down to as low as 6-7. The "tools" at his disposal are impressive to say the least; but more importantly is his skill in using these incredible tools. The facility is first class and i have always been treated with professional and friendly manners from everyone i have come in contact with. I have purchased a set of irons and various clubs from Jonothan Weaver as well as having been "fitted" a couple of times and recommend highly the customization he offers for all golfers.
The junior program is first class as well. In fact my grandson will be coming back later this summer for his second session at the facility. All in all, a job very well done and i am happy to recommend this staff to all my friends.
I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate Joey. Tai at 12 has taken lessons from Joey for almost two years. It has been amazing for us to watch how he has very carefully and purposefully developed her swing and boosted her confidence. Not only has her game improved, but she has developed a passion for golf. She loves going to lessons and is excited to report back to him after each tournament and after most recreational rounds. Joey is a tremendously positive role model for her. He is always enthusiastic, positive and generous with his time and support of us all.
Joey has also helped us to determine the next steps to take to help Tai achieve her goals of playing in High School, College and beyond. And, if beyond doesn’t happen to be as a professional golfer, the lessons she is learning from Joey, Troy Basham and the other staff and students at Jim McLean will provide a foundation for a strong, healthy and productive young woman. We are excited about being members at Jim McLean and the access we now have to the facility. Tai has enjoyed being able to practice there and is looking forward to spending more time this summer with all the other Jim McLean kids!Thanks for an outstanding golf facility and a staff that makes the experience so positive
I believe that everyone at The Jim Mclean Golf Center-Texas in Fort Worth has one goal as soon as you walk in the door, and that is to help improve your game. This is the one practice facility where you can practice any shot you are likely to come across in the course of a round. I truly believe that if you want to improve your game The Jim McLean Golf Center- Texas in Fort Worth is the place to train.

My wife, daughter, and I have been members of JMGC for a year and a half. When my wife and I began searching for a golf training facility for our daughter, Mackenzie (now 14 years old and a competitive golfer), it was important that the facility offer a comprehensive training program. We did our homework and searched for quite a while until we found JMGC - Texas . The JMGC offers all that we were looking for:
· World-class golf facility: driving range, short game area, practice putting greens, challenging 9-hole Par 3 and 4 course to practice course management, a 14,000 square foot indoor practice area (very useful during inclement weather!);
· Best-in-class golf instructors with real life golf experience. My daughter trains with Joey Wuertemberger. As a former professional golfer, Joey really understands all aspects of the game (swing mechanics, course management, mental management, tournament play, etc.). In addition, Joey has a keen knack for zeroing in on the most effective and efficient method to teach Mackenzie. Joey is a demanding instructor, but his teaching style is very laid-back and he makes the game a lot of fun for Mackenzie. In addition to my daughter, I also take lessons from Joey. Since I am not a competitive golfer, my instruction needs are different. Joey has been able to address my golf needs, improve my game, and make golf so much more fun for me as well.
· Mental management: my daughter trained with Troy Bassham of Mental Management Systems for one year. What an improvement that has made in her game and in her golf maturity. Troy really helped Mackenzie establish a solid mental management foundation which she can build upon in the years to come.
· Fitness: Mackenzie trains with the Back9Performance team to improve her conditioning. So important for competitive golf!
· Top-notch management that ensures the facility and instructors are focused on the students, latest technology, and constantly improving the center. As the General Manager, Justin Poynter is always looking for ways to improve the facility for the students and JMGC staff. He consistently seeks input from the students and parents for ways to improve the center. In the short year and a half we have been members, it has been fun to watch Justin and his team make leaps and bounds with both the facility and instruction!
In summary, we were looking for a golf facility that offered state-of-the art everything. We found it at the Jim McLean Golf Center – Texas . The proof is in the results. My daughter’s tournament scores prior to joining the JMGC were in the 90s. Now, Mackenzie is scoring consistently in the 70s. And she (and myself) are enjoying the game of golf so much more. There is simply not a finer all-encompassing training facility in the country.

Thank you for the great lesson. Very impressed with how quickly you improved my swing angle. You communicate very well. Wanted to make sure we were talking about the correct model of Mizuno irons. There are the 57’s and the 52’s… which were you thinking of? With what you’ve seen so far, would I still go for standard lie? Thank you for your help. I look forward to working with you again soon.
Thanks for the great lesson yesterday. You probably saw dozens of things I could work on but you identified the major flaws and gave me some great tools to use to fix them. More than that, as a father of grown kids, I appreciate your respect for others, respect for the game, your appreciation of your gifts and your work ethic. I look forward to the next lesson.
Justin, you are the BEST! I learned so much from you, and do plan to see you again soon. My golf wasn't too bad on Sunday. I even made some long putts. Thank you again for your time and generosity. I have some follow up for you, and will be back in touch soon.
Mike, I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson yesterday. The set of the club at top was solid about 90% of the time during the round at Winstar (according to James). Good news is no shanks, better news is only about 6-8 blocks, and rest were ridiculously straight (including the driver). Took me a while before I could get back some distance, but once I did, I played lights out (even par back 9 on about a 3700 layout). The consistent feel was rather awesome for such a drastic change for me. Thanks for the help. I've already hit about 200 balls today, gun grip. Golf is fun again! Next lesson we need to look at my putting. Have Fun!
Hello, I wanted to let you know Haley won the NTPGA Ewing Automotive Tour Championship in McKinney TX . Tournament was held at Stonebridge CC and was a two day event. After the first day she was tied for second place shooting a 51, she came back to win by 5 strokes with a score of 45 in the final round. We would like to thank the Jim Mclean Golf Academy for helping Haley this season stack up 14 wins out of the 17 tournaments she has entered on three different tours. Logan has 6 wins, 1 second, and 7 third place finishes out of the 16 events he has entered on three different tours as well. Hope all is well in Fort Worth , wish we lived closer so that the kids could get to the academy more often. Please let Chris know how much the kids talk and brag about there coach here in West Texas.
Chris, I am so glad we came to your facility! Cristian mentions to me that he is glad that he can understand your instructions. I can see a change in Cristian's attitude and performance level. Today Friday 2-19-2010 we went to the golf academy at castle hills and he did very well. His iron shots were very well executed. He hit about 80 shots of which maybe 10 were poor shots. He practice putting as well and did manage to get 10 balls from 3 feet in 10 minutes at which time we stopped, We shall continue tomorrow. Again, thank you very much and we will see you on 2 Mar.
I spent the past two days working with your son Matt in TX. I have taken golf instruction before, but my time with Matt was exceptional. He was positive, informative and for the first time in my life I have a plan or direction relative to improving in golf. Most importantly he made me understand what I was doing and what I needed to change without being overly complex. I look forward to my next visit with Matt.
I had a lesson with you last week. I just want to thank you, it really helped me a lot, I told you I was going to sea island to play some golf and I played the best front 9 I ever had. I hit a lot of fairways and made great contact with all my shots… I was very happy with my ball striking! Thanks once again, I will come back for another lesson later!
I received the trophies, thank you so much, we love the Jim Mclean Invitational, best HS tournament in America!

I want to thank you for the time you spent with me on Saturday. I felt like I learned a ton about the golf swing (some was over my head, but I want to learn). I think you have a great place and I look forward to working with you in the future. Also I was talking to my nephew on the way home and he said that there is a wall of all the people who have trained at that location that went on to play college golf or on a pro tour, and he told me that one day he was going the sign that wall. He really liked Chris Morrow and talked very highly of his skills as an instructor.
It was my pleasure to work with Angelina Manzitto-Vinson yesterday at a morning teaching session. She made some simple adjustments that made a big difference. I went out on the course and started applying what she taught me, and I have never had as much fun on the golf course as I did yesterday morning. I can't wait to get out there again!
To Jim McLean,
Thank you so much for the opportunity you have given me this year. It is ever child's dream to attend a golf academy, and without you this would not have been possible. Thank you for the use of your facilities, house, and staff. Thank you for all the tops you have given me, without them my game would not be where it is now. Again, thank you for the opportunity and it was a great year.
