“I am a new to the game golfer and have been a student of Brian Jacobs now for two seasons. I can say that when I started, I thought I knew what I was doing. With the training tools and techniques that he interjects on a personal level, brings an awareness of, and to my game that I would have never seen if I didn’t go to Brian.
Now, after being coached by him, I can say that I have shaved as much as 15-19 strokes off my game. I have a new confidence on the golf course which has made all the difference for me. I would encourage anyone who wants to improve their game, to get some lessons, and I believe Brian is an excellent option.”
“Brian is the best instructor in the area! I have truly enjoyed working with him for the last 6 years and he has helped me improve my golf game each season! He is extremely knowledgeable, passionate, caring, and intuitive! Not only has he supported me and my golf game, during my time working with him, he has also hosted several incredible clinics for my Girls Varsity Golf Program! He understands how to work with all ability levels and is able to pinpoint the critical errors in people’s game that will help them improve their scoring and general passion for golf! Thank you Brian! It is an honor to call you my coach and friend!”
“Brian has been a great mentor in golf. He has totally changed my swing over the past 5 years working with him. I also really like that he also works on fitness and the mental aspect of the game. I have greatly improved as an overall athlete while working with Brian. Now my children are starting lessons with him too.”
“Brian is an exceptional teacher with an amazing ability to connect with your specific needs. Brian does not try to reinvent your swing but rather works within your ability and skill level to help you become a more consistent ball striker and better scorer. His approach is very comfortable and he is incredibly knowledgeable. I have tried other golf coaches/instructors in and around the Rochester market and nobody compares to Brian Jacobs.”
“Brian is a skilled teacher and coach of his craft. He not only provides exceptional coaching on skills, techniques and the mental aspect of the game of golf, he provides great insight and motivation on how to be your best in life. I have grown as both a player and as a person because of knowing Brian and developing a bond with him as any great teacher would with their student.”
I had the pleasure of meeting Brian at a PGA HOPE event in Tonawanda, NY. I believe it was 2019 or 2020. Brian was very friendly to the entire group and was genuinely interested in instructing golf and helping us veterans. I was fortunate enough to have private lesson with Brian after channeling my inner “Nicklaus” and winning a putting contest. Brian could have shown me some drills for 30 minutes and sent me on my way. However, this Golf Channel instructor chose to play a full 9 holes…we had a great time. I’m honored to say we have been friends ever since.
Brian takes a personal interest in his students. As a former educator, he gains great pride in the successes of his pupils. Some of the things I admire is 1. Brian is not selfish or stingy with his knowledge. He shares his talents and gifts willingly. 2. Brian is always positive…always. No matter how bad a shot you hit, or how ugly the swing is…the results are “perfect”. At no point have I ever heard Brian mention a negative or degrading comment to anyone.
I look forward to continuing my golf and personal relationship with Brian for years to come and I recommend his instruction to any and all I come in contact with.
Brian, my coach and mentor, is the consummate professional whose experience validates the 10,000 hour rule – he is a master teacher. An aging athlete, I am a community golfer seeking to improve my game. My issues were — personal, medical, and physical. Sensitive to all of these issues, Brian has become a friend and mentor.
After a thorough assessment, Brian has patiently worked to produce improvement in all aspects of my game. His hands-on teaching is fantastic. He is a master at demonstrating the effects of changes on body position on producing the required changes on ball flight. His hands-on teaching during each session is the most important element of his program. Apart from the planned meetings and the multiple resources available through his Academy, he responds rapidly to problems that one is having in a game situation. His resources, it seems are limitless – he produces custom videos tailored to the moment. Recently it became clear that I was not completing my swing. Two videos and instant advice got me back on track. A couple of bad days with the short game… more videos, and detailed advice on the errors that I was making.
To summarize, Brian coaches at the highest levels, but the gift he gives to every student is absolute commitment.
