  • Nice-looking site, Coach. Very helpful, too.

  • The site is terrific. The information is nicely delivered and the post about the Pro position was eye opening. Can’t wait to adopt the move.

  • Thank you, Coach, for sharing such valuable information for the seasoned and young golfer alike. Your site is now our first reference for any trouble spot.

  • Coach Rick, the site looks great, but the information is even better. I shared your site with Travis and he is going to share it with all his high school golf team members, and his coach.
    Your lessons are clear and easy to understand also.

  • Thanks for following. By the way, you ain’t got no game.

  • Loved the piece on Webb Simpson. What a great experience for the players. The Bubba story was priceless.


  • Dont knOw if you’ll remember me but 1996-1997 I played on the team and just wanted to let you know My career is golf… I am a senior designer for golf galaxy: a subsidy of dicks sporting goods. Being a lefty I get a bit of flak but I also got the first R11 lefty in the world. Why I write is for two things: one to thank you for the time you put into the program you built and now control rightfully and two I might be able to open an internship position but want to your opinion on this. It would be in Pittsburgh pa and I can provide documentation but next summer if you have someone I may have a spot.

  • Congrats cousin on the latest chapter in serving as Skidmore Coach. Mom (Bev) told me about it today. She said she’s going to stop by after the wedding. Hope we get a chance to catch up soon. Congrats again


  • I am not sure where you are getting your info, but
    great topic. I needs to spend some time learning
    more or understanding more. Thanks for fantastic info I was looking for this information for
    my mission.

  • Coach, I see you parents weekly at church. As an avid super senior golfer, I have found the mental aspect of golf is often worth more than any club in the bag. Good to see you’ve landed a great job in Saratoga Springs, NY. A colleague from my Stanford University days has retired from Cornell University where his son, Max Koehler, is one of the teams key players. Got to see him again when I visited Cornell on a college visit with my daughter and granddaughter. Presented him a nice golf shirt from Legacy Golf Links in Aberdeen, NC. Our granddaughter wasn’t thrilled with Cornell and chose Elon College, Greensboro, NC.

  • Hey Rick,

    I always loved Dottie Pepper. thanks for the great interview! Hope the snow hasn’t been too much for you this year.

    Love to the family.


  • Coach Fruisen truly lives and breathes coaching. He loves the game of golf and he loves the challenge of coaching. His knowledge of every facet of the game has improved my skills and abilities helping me to become a more complete player.

  • Whatever you are doing…keep doing it. My son came home in a great mindset yesterday. Everything that you have set up with around working on “process” and not focusing on score has immediately taken pressure off his shoulders. It shows that your experience is very valuable. He said you shared with him a real and tangible program around a game within the game and he is excited to put it to use. Thanks so much.

  • how can I contact you to find out about lessons for my son who is 8?

  • Fred
    I had a great weekends golf after just two of your lessons! I can actually hit the ball straight now! Many thanks for your help,
