As a professional golfer from Durango, I decided to take a lesson from Doctor Wright at El Cid Golf & Country Club. You will enjoy his instruction, it will improve your game and it won’t take you hours on the driving range. He highlights key principles on alignment, on balance and on grip that will definitely transform your game.

Time spent at the Wright Balance Clinic at El Cid gives the golfer a better understanding about golf fundaments. The instruction will definitely improve your game. For me, understanding/learning the “visualization concept” has been one of the best learning experiences I have ever had.

I have been working a lot to improve my game after your workshops and I can strike and putt much better now. I’m glad and feel that if I continue working to be more consistent on my game I’m going to have a better scores… The other feeling is trust. This is much greater, because I started developing shots that I never imagined and I am making my putts. I’m certain that the changes you recommended to me are the right ones. Also, after our lessons together, I no longer have the shoulder, back or knee pain after a round of golf or practice.
