“I would highly recommend Plain English Golf to any golfer seeking to improve.  My son, Mason, has worked with Butch English for more than five years and has advanced his skills significantly. Butch is an excellent coach and serves as a mentor to young men."

Colin Bain

Butch and I established a few goals that would allow me to improve as a golfer. After working with him, I started to improve and make progress weekly while establishing a friendship with someone who carries a tremendous passion for the game.  Over the last year and a half, I was able to lower my handicap to a 6.2 index."
