Jody is the ultimate professional in the way she carries herself and carries out her duties. As one of the head coaches of the Team BC program, Jody bought into the “Team” concept and led by example with her athletes. Jody was constantly looking for ways to strengthen her team using the services that Team BC had available and would look for any way to make her athletes stronger off and on the golf course. She is truly dedicated to her athletes and to her provincial association. I would not hesitate to have Jody back in our program and wish her all the success as she continues her career journey.

I have to tell you what a huge part of my success in 2011 you were – our work in 2010 in all areas of the game, physical, mental and emotional, was instrumental in how I played in 2011 – I had the confidence and the right preparation based on what tools you were able to help me acquire – 2011 included not only qualifying for the US Open, but winning my 3rd BC Amateur and making it past the first stage of LPGA qualifying on my first attempt – I value your knowledge of the many areas that a golfer needs to be successful at, but most importantly, your easy-going personality made it fun to go for a lesson!

Jody Jackson is the professional’s professional. Not many golf professionals and coaches have all the skills that Jody possesses. She has a great eye for the swing and can communicate her thoughts so the student can understand them. On top of a great teacher she is very well versed in golf fitness, yoga, and the psychology of the game. If your looking for a lesson or a full time coach Jody is a true expert and I give her my full recommendation.

I am back in San Diego now and just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful time I had on our week end trip. That was the highlight of my vacation. I especially enjoyed the opportunity to play a round of golf with you. Your swing and power is definitely and inspiration, along with your ability to be calm, relax and have fun. I did not see a bit of tension in you. That is, as you know, my worst enemy but I am working on it.

Just wanted to say how very much your lessons have helped me in all phases of the game. Your teaching methods are superb…. an explanation of what is to be accomplished, a visual from you, and then you let the student do the rest, with gently encouraging comments along the way. I have found in the past that most teachers talk too much which is very confusing to new golfers…you do not. Your explanations are concise and easy to understand.
You have caused me to love the game even more! Thanks for all the encouragement. Your teaching skills are amazing.

We hacked around the course for more than thirty years never progressing. I got rid of my clubs and gave up golf more times than anyone. At the time my golf round was approximately 110 if I was lucky. I warned Jody I may be unattainable and a hopeless cause. She laughed and said I would be fine. We then we agreed to a four week training program. We put in the training after each lesson and after our second year of training with Jodi I am now a 17 handicap golfer and confidently expect to reduce to around 10-12 by next year as I often get rounds of around 85 now. Not bad for a guy going of fifty six who thought he would remain a hacker forever thanks to Jodi. I now really enjoy my golf and seriously advise anyone starting out to forget buying clubs and spend as much as you can on lessons.
