    Dear Ben, I found your clinic very helpful in many ways. Judging distances, the stroke, the proper grip and etc.

    Thanks again.

  2. Meliss Lawrence says:

    Dear Ben,
    I would just like to take the time to say how helpful you clinic has been to both myself and my dear cousin. We both now have similar things that we look out for such as the dimple and positioning. knowing why one would do something as oposed to just doing it really helps. We look forward to continuing this excursion for years to come with the ease and comfort that has been passed down to us from you.
    Again, thank you for yout time and patience. your knowledge of the game and wisdom with metaphors really helps. Keep doing what you are doing because if your clients see that you love, they will also.

    I’d like you’re putting technique it’s help me very much with distance control. I had 27 putts and shot 75 for 18 holes

    thanks again for everything

  4. Toni Yadron says:

    Ben, I loved your one-on-one driving lessons that I took last year. My golf game has improved tremendously and friends have definitely noticed! However, I did not get as much out of the group putting clinic, because of a few factors. People kept coming late after the lesson started, you had to repeat things, the group grew too big, then it got dark before I felt comfortable with the lesson details and practice. But overall, I think you are a great golf coach. Thanks a bunch!

  5. Tony Gentry says:

    I have taken your driving lesson and putting lesson in the past two months. I thought you delivered the information very clearly and concise to assist in the learning process of how to learn the game of golf and how to continue to improve. The dimple and positioning has helped in my driving and the approach to putting has made me a better putter. On the average prior to the lesson for putting, I was averaging 3 to 4 putts at every hole. I was out on Oct 29, 2013, and I was averaging 1 or 2 putts on the holes. my Iron play is much better since I started practicing in the mirror. I played a round of nine holes in Mokena, Il and shot a 45 out of a possible 36. By bring my putts down, I was able to score lower than my usual 59 to 70.

    Thanks for the valuable demonstration and information provided.

  6. Frank S says:


    I am so glad that I have taken your Driving, Putting and Chipping Clinics. My scores have been dropping ever since. My hits off the tee have been more consistent and my short game have improved a lot.

  7. mike krutilla says:


    Thanks for helping me out with my total golf game. Your teaching
    helped me drop 5to8 strokes off my game. I hope you have some
    lessons in 2014 for those of use that took the first five lessons in
    2013 Thanks Again.


  8. Judy Bolotin says:

    I loved your putting clinic. Having the definite “numbers” to work with as opposed to endlessly trying to get “a feel for the putt” made a huge difference to how I approach putting. The instruction to walk off every putt is also a great theory. Thanks so much.

  9. Sean Strother says:

    “I recently purchased a Groupon for lessons with Ben. I am new to golf and Ben really put me at ease and helped me to realize that I had natural ability. He understands the golf swing really well and is truly passionate about the game. His message is simple, intelligent, and genuine. I look forward to continuing to work with Ben as I try to improve my game next summer”.

  10. Mike Chmielewski says:

    I thought all of the clinics were great. While I did not take lessons from anywhere else, I cannot imagine any other clinics being more beneficial. The main reason for this is how much instruction you provide at such a low cost. The small group clinics that you run are, in my opinion, even better than individualized instruction because it allows for golfers to get more repetitions on everything that is being taught (and in a longer lesson – 90 minute sessions as opposed to a typical 30 or 60 minute session).

    If there is any critique that I could make it would be to introduce the proper grip of the golf club earlier in your Swing clinic – in #3 as opposed to #5. While I’m sure your reason for not introducing it until the end is based in sound golf logic using knowledge I surely don’t have, from the perspective of someone like myself, having known that proper grip earlier on when I was learning the basics of the swing could have had some advantages. For example, while I understand that your goals for us are not exactly results-oriented at first, I feel as if had I known the proper grip earlier on, I could have used the results to more appropriately gauge whether I was applying what you were teaching at the time correctly.

    Overall, though, I really thought the lessons were exceptional. I will definitely reach out to you again early on next summer for a few more to freshen up on my mechanics before I start playing again.

  11. Ron Karlic says:

    Ben, I enjoyed all of your lessons. The one I use most is your putting lesson. It has helped me greatly.

    I bought some dvd’s of Martin Chuck’s method from Revolution Golf and have found that method more helpful in the driving and iron shots. He basically plays ALL balls off the left foot area and teaches a swing as if you had a hula hoop being held out from your body at a 45 degree angle and striking the ball at the bottom of the hula hoop. I getting there. Playing better than I was at the start of the season.

  12. Brent says:

    I never got the chance to thank you for the serendipity I experienced on the green after your putting clinic. My confidence has exploded on the green and my scores reflect that. I’ve still got a bit of practicing to do but now I have a routine and no longer quiver over 10 foot putts. I absolutely love pacing off a 50 footer and watching the ball roll just as I imagined.

    You weren’t kidding when you said you were going to pack it into 90 minutes! I’ve been a golfer for many years but never taken the time to learn to putt. On the green, I was always going for feel because I had nothing else to rely on– until I learned your framework. I am very much indebted to you! Among many other reasons, I was particularly impressed by the progression of the lesson. In the beginning you set us up to fail, stripped us of any pre-conceived notions that we knew how to putt, and then taught us the framework from the ground up. I remember thinking in the beginning, this isn’t going to do me any good- I just don’t get it. And then, as soon as we started putting the pieces together, it all made sense and I’ve never looked back. I think that was one of the most important and impressive parts of the clinic.

    Thank you for the clinic, Ben!

  13. Gene says:

    Ben, I do believe you helped my game and will continue in the spring with your lessons.

  14. Pat Casey says:

    I liked your putting instruction because it was simple and easy to remember. It gave me a guide for distance on each putt, not just a feel. Unfortunately I couldn’t work in the chipping into my schedule this season but looking forward to, as soon as I can.
    Thank you Ben!

  15. Joe says:

    My scores have improved. The chipping lesson definitely helped. This was one of the weaker parts of my game. This lesson simplified this part of the game for me. The putting lesson also helped my game. I have not mastered the methodology but I definitely approach each putt more methodically looking at the break, speed and distance . I need to put more practice time into putting.

  16. Dan K says:

    Ben, thanks for making the game fun again. I walked away for many years, but now have a renewed passion. Your sense of humor…and straight forward method are a great combo. Cheers!

  17. Al says:

    I enjoyed and learned from your putting and chipping clinics. I am looking forward to even more improvement next year with additional sessions.

  18. Brad wise says:

    I have taken lessons from numerous instructors some even ranked in golf digest top 100 teachers and I have to say that Ben Mutz has a very inspiring approach . Communication is the key along with content of course but to really get it you need to understand the meaning . Ben will help you . Worth every penny

  19. John B says:

    The lessons I have learned from Ben have been very helpful. I feel confident walking on the green and making a putt. The straightforward teaching made it easy for me to understand and implement right away. I have seen strokes drop from my score card because of Ben. Thank you.

  20. Don Ski says:

    Ben, my game has definitely improved because of your lessons. I have taken your full swing, putting, chipping,and individual training playing 18 holes with you and two other students. I have taken lessons from pros from Odyssey, Cog Hill, Silver Lake golf courses. By far your instructions were the best. I learned a great deal. The difference is that you actually teach a method. Your methods of putting and full swing actually work to improve anyone’s game.
    Thank You.

  21. Brett says:

    I liked your instruction because I think less during my putting stroke, and I have more confidence that I will hit the putt with the correct speed. I was between a 3-4 handicap before your lesson, now I am a 0-2. I make a lot more putts and have more confidence making putts 15ft and under. One of the problems I had, preventing me from shooting par or under, was my putting. I averaged 30-32 putts. I would always think too much about my speed. But, with your way, I know the speed will be right without thinking too much. Since the lesson, I average about 25-28 putts. Granted my chipping has also been better, but I make at least 2-3 more putts, per 18 holes, than before. The last 4 times playing, I haven’t shot over par. Like today, I shot an even par with 4 birdies on 8 GIR. Before, it was hard for me to make more than 1 birdie per 18 because I couldn’t make anything over 5 feet. Since the lesson, I am averaging about 2-3 birdies with confidence that I can make anything under 15ft.

  22. Mark B says:

    Ben, the lessons I have learned through your putting clinic have helped me out so much. If you want to take the guess work out of your putting and feel confident in striking the ball with your putter this is a great instructor. I have taken anywhere from 4 to 6 strokes off my game by eliminating those 3 and 4 putt greens. You learn the process and how to read a green and you will be confident with no guessing. Great instruction.

  23. Dale Rehus says:


    Since I began using the techniques learned in your putting clinic, I have been putting so much better. I rarely, if ever, three putt anymore. My first putt almost always leaves me a short tap in. Your methods take much of the guess work out of the putting equation, I continue to use them and am a strong believer.

    Thanks Again!

  24. Marina Fricilone says:

    Before my lessons with Ben, I had never really golfed more than hitting a few balls at the driving range. I never considered taking lessons before, but since Ben’s lessons were such a great deal, I figured I’d give it a try. I was completely surprised by how much I enjoyed my lessons and how quickly I began to feel like a golfer. As an educator, it is hard not to judge others’ teaching practices. I was so impressed with Ben’s ability to break things down in a way that a novice golfer, like me, could understand and easily remember. I quickly began to really enjoy golfing and found it to be a relaxing break in my busy week.
    I would absolutely recommend Ben and his lessons to any golfer, beginner or experienced. He was able to help me see golfing in a new way. Thank you, Ben.

  25. Felicia says:

    I liked your golf instruction because you were patient and clear. You were more of a “teacher” than an “instructor.” Knowing nothing about putting your strategy provided a format I could implement (not always successfully) on the link.

  26. Gary R. says:

    Lowered my score after taking Putting lesson and enjoyed playing more. Looking forward to Short Game lesson in 2014

  27. David Ward says:

    Ben, the putting and chipping clinics have helped me immensely. In these two areas I am now very mechanical, which is good because a machine can repeat the same action over and over successfully. No touchy feely shots around the green. This confidence creates a positive feedback loop which leads to more success. My goal is to be an Iron Byron with a intelligence chip inside. Other putting instruction I have taken never provided this type of distance control.

    When I warm up, I putt from 5 and 10 yards out (15 if I have time). Assuming the greens are consistent, using your methodology my distance is now dialed in for the entire round. Looking forward to significantly lowering my score this spring.

  28. Stan Gershenson says:

    Ben: I liked your short game instructions because you taught us some real standards or measurements for gauging our putting stroke. This has helped my game tremendously and I am looking forward to taking more lessons from you next year.

    Thanks again,

    Stan Gershenson

  29. Dan says:

    I took Ben’s putting clinic over a year ago and been using it ever since. I never had so much consistency on the greens with my speeds. I carry a very low handicap , I know that putting is one of the most important parts of the game. Thanks to Ben I’m consistently averaging under 30 putts per round. Even my playing partners have taken notice in my putting! Thanks again, Dan.

  30. Steven says:

    1. It was easy to take your lessons right to the course. After both the putting and driving clinics I played the following day. In both cases I was able to use what I had learned immediately.
    2. You don’t waste a lot of time with stories, etc. The stories are there,but are brief and are relevant to the instruction.
    3. You don’t speak in overly technical terms.
    4. It’s affordable, but not so much so that classes are overflowing.

  31. Doug Stam says:

    Ben, I am late getting this to you,but I must say your putting technique and the “body part to body part” have made me a much more confident
    golfer, my scores have lowered (though not at first) but my ball striking and power have improved a lot,to bad I learned this later in the year, can’t wait till next season, I am excited about lowering my handicap, and of course my wife and I will be back to build on the solid fundamentals we now own.

  32. Oscar says:

    The putting clinic was really good

  33. Jim Barker says:

    Ben runs a great clinic and has the ability to connect with golfers of all ages and all skill levels. His putting method and instruction are concrete, helpful and provide immediate results for all players. This will definitely improve any players’ putting stroke and will lead to lower scores.

  34. Todd D says:


    On behalf of my son Kevin, he felt like your instruction definitely lowered his golf score, and enabled him to make the varsity golf team at Joliet Catholic Academy. He wants to sign up for a number of lessons in the Spring…

    Thank you!

  35. John White says:


    Your putting clinic’s our the BEST. You cover everything. The only thing anyone needs to do is take the class if they want to reduce their putts.


  36. Tom Dowd says:

    I used Groupon to sign up and schedule lessons. Great offer…

  37. Anne J. Irving says:

    You’ll find it almost impossible to find well-advised women and men on this niche, however , you appear like you understand what you’re covering! Thank You

  38. John Beck says:

    I took a private lesson. After practicing his drills for 4 days, as a 6 hcp I shot an even par round on a difficult golf course with 29 putts. It was best putting round of my 62 years of golfing. Ben’s system works if you will practice it.

  39. Eric Deinoff says:

    For beginners or grinders who want to take their golf game to the next level AND are wasting strokes on the putting green using a ‘feel’ approach but do not have time to practice, Ben’s putting clinic is a great two hour session that provides you a methodology to become a more analytical and consistent putter, gives you the foundation to improve incrementally each time you find time to practice, and gives you the confidence to shave strokes on the course. In the time it takes to play nine holes on a good day, not only will Ben change how you mentally approach putting, but also he will give an easily repeatable putting stroke that will help you hone your distance control and consistency that removes any vestiges of ‘sight and feel’ putting – a simple ‘reframe’ for me that has made all of the difference. Furthermore, I am already applying concepts I learned in this clinic to other parts of my short game. At this GroupOn price, the value exceeds the cost. I would recommend this clinic to anyone who is serious about improving their golf game by becoming a putting master but don’t have the means or hours to practice as often as you would like to.
