2 lessons saved me 7 strokes! Coach Franz did an assessment and went to work immediately. His teaching style is light, comprehensive, and applicable. Also, I love that he teaches the whole game; mental and mechanical. On a personal level, he's extremely positive, patient, and a warm person to be around. I'll be back for more!

I have nothing but positive things to say about Franz. I started golfing this season and decided to seek out some professional coaching before I develop too many bad habits. In a surprisingly short amount of time, Franz was able to point out what I was doing right along with which areas I could improve. He explained the correct mechanics of the swing without it feeling overwhelming. He left me with some simple drills and concepts which I can work on in between lessons. He is a fun guy to talk to and creates a comfortable environment for you to learn and improve your game. Highly recommended.

I had the pleasure of meeting Coach Franz while I was a member at the Metro Golf Dome last year. I am relatively new to golf and was looking to get some coaching. I approached Coach after I saw him giving some lessons to some of his students. He was very thorough with his approach and was honest with his students. He does not have a "1 size fits all approach" to coaching but rather assesses your abilities and helps you build the right coaching plan to help your game. He has helped my game tremendously from swing mechanics but especially being able to help me correctly play a golf course and how to keep it in check between the ears.

Coach Franz is knowledgeable and patient. He also infuses enthusiasm for the game into the teaching protocol. We have a few more lessons left and are looking forward to them.

Nothing but positive things to say about Franz. He took a consultative approach to teaching, tailoring his lessons to my specific needs. I'm confident I will see improvements to my game this summer.

Franz will provide you with a complete lesson, every lesson. This man doesn't know shortcuts, he will work specifically with you to address your personal needs and give you tips and drills to help you correct your swing. I worked with Franz this past golf season and the improvement I made was quite dramatic. I've taken lessons in the past from swing coaches that keep trying to drill the same concept that works for them. Franz does not use a one size fits all style of coaching and uses unique methods to make you the best golfer you can be. He will not only work on your yardage but as well he will work on your accuracy in driving, chipping, and putting. Franz will also give you golf strategies instead of just swing strategies. Go to Franz, he is well worth the investment!

Franz (a.k.a. the Swing Surgeon), is an amazing coach. He really has a talent for making you feel comfortable, which is a necessary step to learning and improving your golf game. He coaches all levels, including beginners like me. Very highly recommended.

My journey with Coach Franz at Golf and Performance started recently, as I suffer from inconsistency with my irons and wanted to improve on this part of my game. He asked me what my goals were and what are my common misses, shot shape, brand, model, and shaft in my irons were. Two videos were submitted and his analysis was detailed but easy to understand. A couple of drills have been recommended by Coach Franz with video demonstrations. I anticipate a solid relationship and getting my scores consistently below 80.

My daughter played a good game in high school, but over the last decade of university and getting into the work-life, had let her game drift. Her practice sessions early this year were frustrating for her. We met coach Franz at one of his teaching sites in early June and had a good chat. After checking him out she decided to put some money into a lesson package with him. After 3 lessons she is showing signs of recovering and hopefully improving on her previous ability and her confidence has improved each time she has practiced or played the last couple of weeks. Coach Franz is a great guy and has a gift for teaching. We couldn't recommend him more highly! Thanks, Franz!

IMO, the most important part of any coaching plan that you get with a coach is to do your homework. He does not wave a magical wand and turn you into Tiger or Jack but he gives you the correct platform to allow you to practice efficiently and effectively. Don't be a "range rat" and hit 400 balls a day but practice in a way that best helps you develop your game with the time you have. He is a great coach but an even better person. I have also had a chance to meet his son Darien who is a very talented junior golfer with a very bright future ahead. He is a bright kid who has the right attitude and it shows. If you want to commit yourself to become a better player then get a lesson plan with Coach Franz. He will do his part but keep in mind you have to pull your weight too.

It’s very lucky for Lucas to be under the training of Franz who is really a very responsible and reliable coach. Lucas loves to take Coach Franz’s golf lesson and has made great progress. Lucas' Dad and I are all happy with that.

Looking for a golf teacher that knows what he's doing? Check out Franz McFayden at Bushwood. He was recommended to me. Had a great time and can honestly recommend him for young and old. Doing what I always wanted to do.

Coach Franz made an adjustment to my swing in 2019 that saw me picking up 10 to 15 yards with my driver. Yesterday he tweaked 3 things and my regular clubhead speed of 98 mph went to 101 mph, then 104 mph, and then repeatedly at 108 mph! The goal is 115 mph. I have regained a lot of confidence and made really great strides with my driving.

I enjoyed Coach Franz, his personal approach, and his knowledge of the game. I came away from our session with 2-3 good takeaways. Well worth the drive from Burlington!

Excellent instructor! I have had several lessons from Franz. I found him to be an excellent instructor. Very receptive to my concerns during the teaching periods. I am a much better golfer than I was when I started with him. I also like his easy-going approach to the game. Places no pressure on you during the instruction period which is conducive to learning. Highly recommended. Thanks Franz!

"Your tips from the second lesson helped tremendously and I can hit my driver now; I love this game so much!  Practicing the same swing for all my clubs is definitely helping"

I bought a few golf lessons to try out since I had no prior experience and wanted to learn. I was a little nervous, but Franz was a great teacher; very approachable, knowledgeable, and patient with me. I learned so much in my short time and felt more confident in each lesson. I recommend it to anyone who's interested in learning golf or wants to brush up on their skills. I surely will be back for more lessons soon! Thanks, Franz!

"I wanted to tell you that I played a round last week and I slowed my back-swing down and, wow, has it made a difference! Slowing things down made so much sense and it was the 1st thing you said to me. I'm hitting as long and as straight as I ever have. Just missed breaking 80 something, and I haven't done that for over 20 years. Thank you!
