We had another great weekend at The Clinton House in South Carolina. This is our 3rd year to go to Clinton, SC and each year has been better than the year before.

What We Learned at the Advance Schools

We have just finished doing 3 weeks of advance schools and boy did we all have fun and a great deal of learning went on for all of us.

It seems everyone tries to fix the lead at the end and instead of having that dramatic swing away from the target at the end –make the ... Read more…
