PGA instructor Kevin Hamluk tailors golf instruction to the individual swing habits and physical limitations of his students, demonstrating a successful approach that earned him a spot as a finalist in the 2012 Best Young Teacher awards from Golf Digest. Kevin works with his students to develop a dependable swing that fits their bodies and improves their ability to ward off feral flagsticks. Along with providing private lessons on the range, Kevin offers clinics that cover the full-swing, short-game, or putting techniques and online video lessons that involve students sending him videos of their swings for analysis, corrective feedback, and a direct line to casting agents.
The one-hour golf lesson, which includes all course or practice-facility fees, requires golfers to bring their own clubs to have their golf needs assessed and addressed by a PGA®-certified instructor.

Cloud 9 has partnered with golfing professionals and tee-off locales all over the country, including four course and instructor choices in the Vegas area—Silverstone Golf Club with Gary Knapp, Red Rock Country Club with Tom Fisher, Angel Park Golf Course with Tom Leese, and the Revere Golf Club in Henderson with Chris Eastman.

Kumdo means "the way of the sword," and it's easy to see how faithfully the trainers of U.S. Hwa Rang Kwan Kumdo take that meaning. The classes include bamboo swords, full body armor, and face-obscuring masks, as students and master twirl around one another in intricate, technical maneuvers. A scream accompanies each swing of the sword, making kumdo almost as invigorating to watch as it is to practice.
