    I have know Marc for many years. He is a great instructor and great guy overall. I would send him a PM (his name on the forum is PingMan, as he is certified by PING). Marc would be more than happy to talk with you and explain his background in further detail.

    I've been trying to get a hold of Marc, however I have been unsuccessful. Does anyone have an alternate contact for him?

    Just got back from my first of 5 lessons again with Marc. His approach is simple and his observations are excellent. He will not fill your head with a ton of things he will let you make mistakes and gives excellent feedback. I hope that my HC continues to drop under his tutelage. Ihave dropped and full 3 points since starting lessons late last season. I was beginning to struggle with the hooks again and after making some adjustments they had disppeared after a quick 5 swings. He is teaching out of 3 locations this year, I beleive he said Innes, Anderson and Champlain so it is even easier access, thanks Marc!

    2nd lesson done and I like what I see. Marc is very good at making you understand the swing you have and the swing you are trying to get. Now is the time to get lessons, he is busy but still has some slots left

    Hey Lefty, I was the next guy in line today right behind you, waiting for my first lesson with Marc. I agree with your observations and quickly learned that he doesn't want to rebuild my swing from the bottom up or teach me the StacknTilt or some other swing. He actually liked my swing but I had gotten into a couple of bad habits. I was very comfortable in talking with Marc and liked his casual but professional attitude and knowledge that I so dearly need.

    Why oh why did I not seek out a Pro sooner?

    Signed up for four more lessons.

    Fixing one thing at a time,

    Don

    Hi Don, your exactly right. As a golfer you can see what your ball is doing and self diagnosis is a killer. I was struggling with hooks last year and Marc straightened me out. This year they were starting to come back and Marc quickly turned it around and now I feel my swing is on even better track. Yesterday I was finishing properly on my front leg for the first time ever. He is a keen observer and knows how to convey that information.

    Don this is my 2nd 5 lesson stint and it is invaluable, much greater value than buying clubs even though that is probably more fun.

    I'm sure it's been posted in this thread somewhere, but can someone provide the best phone number to get a hold of Marc?
    Thanks

    Now I've Gone and Done It...

    Lesson 1 of 5 now in the bank with Marc. Simple, clear instruction and, as so well described above, shows you the swing you have and the swing you want to try to acheive with clear steps as to how he will try to get you there. Classy guy with great interaction skills. I'm really looking forward to my next session but....much work to be done in the meantime...lol!

    After 1 lesson with him this winter I am playing some of the best golf I have played in nearly a decade.

    I can't say enough good things about Marc.

    I went for my yearly tune up with Marc. I really appreciate that he remembers what you worked on and what you are doing right. He quickly assessed my swing, showed me a couple of things to work on and then moved on. I am always impressed by his teaching method, he explains things so well.

    Hey Scott, he is teaching out of Pineview. They have about 170yd range so no drivers but for what I wanted to work on it was great. He actually can take you on the course if you do want to hit drivers.

    Hi guys,

    I've been a frequent browser of these forums, and I must say I really enjoy the discussion and banter.

    I finally broke down and joined because I am interested in taking my first golf lessons, and based on all the positive reviews and anecdotes here I would like to try out Marc Levac.

    Could someone please send me his email or phone number?

    Thanks in advance!

    No trouble, Marc deserves all the accolades for sure, just a couple of weeks after a refresher lesson and working on what he showed me I shot one of my best 9s ever.

    Just had my first lesson with Marc last night... first of all I really enjoyed the setup at Pineview. It's a small range which is reserved only for instruction (we were the only ones there) which it makes it very easy to focus on the lesson.

    As for the lesson itself - wow! What a difference! He watched me hit literally 2-3 balls, then made a couple adjustments to my grip and setup, showed me how to properly release my hands, and presto I was hitting the ball straight and longer than I've ever hit in my life! It's frustrating to think of how many years I've struggled trying to teach myself, and in one hour I (Marc) managed to fix so much.

    Anyways I'm eager to take my new swing out for some practice and a few rounds, and will definitely be going back in a few weeks for another lesson.

    I just had first lesson with Marc tonight since last year. I'm glad I contacted him again!. As Costag said, he's a great instructor who can help fix your swing. I understand now what I was doing wrong and why the ball was going where it did. Without his knowledge, I would still be hitting ball after ball at the range to try to put a fix on the problem. If anyone is looking for a instructor for any part of their game, I highly recommend Marc!

    I thought any 9 was a bad 9, even on a par 5.

    Pingman or someone could you pm me your/his details I need help bad. Only been playing a five seasons and end of last year stood a 19 Hcap (low 90's some high 80's).

    Decided to take lessons at GT in Kanata start of this season to try and improve by tweaking my stroke, bad mistake I feel my whole stroke was deconstructed and now in a whole heap of trouble. I am currently a 25 Hcap spiraling down to the floor, since lessons I have only hit under 100 once (and had some bad three figure scores). It is July 3rd and I am very close to putting the clubs away for the season, I have absolutely no confidence in my new swing and I have tried to get back to my old swing which have some how merged and created a huge mess. Thx
