    I attended a seminar held by Kathy at the Falls Country Club in Internation Falls earlier this month. Kathy gave an excellent presentation which was very helpful to me (a new, and senior golfer) and to my friends who are seasoned golfers. It was delightful, and I would definately attend another session with Kathy.

    Thanks very much Kathy!
