It was my pleasure to be a part of this wonderful weekend with everyone.  As I said during our time together, this was certainly serendipitous and transformational. I am a "New Woman" because of all of you.  You came to me at a time in my life that I needed you and you werethere like magic! I look forward to all of your future seminars and certainly the one at Wiawaka next year so count me in. In the meantime I look forward to each new day with new eyes and of course new glasses!!!

Kay McMahon - Co-owner of eduKaytion Golf, Director of Instruction, Award-Winning Golf Professional and TeacherKay McMahon established eduKaytion Golf in upstate New York, as a company dedicated to quality and simplified instruction with her signature and trademarked Golf 8.5 approach. Kay created Golf 8.5 realizing early on that the golf swing needs to be taught so that people “get it sooner”. Golf 8.5 de-clutters the 6-inch attic. There are only 4 things to do before the swing and only 4 1/2 things to do in the swing. Golf 8.5 starts from the beginning, focusing first on understanding the principles of the golf swing. In the 8.5 approach so many things happen automatically and never have to be taught, such as posture, alignment and how far to stand from the golf ball. The learning curve is fast-tracked and quickly learned.
