Looking to get some monthly lessons from a good instructor. Willing to pay max $150-$200 per lesson. Any suggestions on really good golf instructors in the Orlando area? I live right near the Mike Bender Academy but don't want to shell out $500 for a lesson.

    Brendan Kennedy is at Alaqua Lakes in the Longwood area (just north of the city).

    I am a fan of Nick Adcock over at OCN.  He splits his time so he is only in Orlando from October through April.

    May want to look at Tim Sheredy.  He's over in Sarasota, I think.

    Dan Carraher a couple of hours up the road at St Augustine got to be worth considering?

    Matt Killen isn’t really young.  He’s been teaching on the PGA Tour for almost 15 years. 


    Brendan Kennedy is good.  Hernen Rey is also good and he’s at OCN.

    I'd go see Dan in a heartbeat if I lived in Fla.  Somehow, I think a mix of Monte and Dan is a powerful stereo message of great stuff.

    Yea, I know he’s been out there awhile, I remember looking him up like 10 years ago in Kentucky but he was charging like 500 then as well, too rich for my blood.

    The PGA tour is centered in Orlando. You live in golfs capital. You should have zero problem finding someone good and close to the tour. Someone very smart and gets pro results.
    What a great place to live!

    PGA Tour Headquarters is in Ponte Vedra not Orlando.

    Personally no experience with him, but a former student of mine who now lives in Florida is working with Chris Couch. I feel like he has done some great stuff with my former student. Fwiw
