As golf obsessed patrons ourselves, we are a passionate team of professional instructors and equipment testers who have collaborated here at Swing Yard!
We want to provide the absolute BEST golf instruction available on the web so you can get your game to the next level… possibly in your very next round.
Simply put, we want to help you get better at golf!
In addition… we want to help you pick the very BEST equipment for your game and your current golfing goals.
What We Do Here at Swing Yard
Professional-Based Golf Instruction
Our head instructor and writer, Coach Erik Schjolberg of EJS Golf, is a PGA certified professional golf coach. He actually coaches several current PGA tour players, as well as many junior golfers who are on the path to scholarship college golf.

We have partnered with Erik to provide the absolute best instructional content articles to help you with not only a specific issue you may be dealing with currently, but also a PATH for you to follow in your progression to figuring out this fun (but sometimes frustrating) game of golf.
Sometimes golfers just don’t know WHAT to work on… we’re here to help you with that and lead you down the road to success.
Product Testing and Evaluation
Erik and the rest of our equipment testers team are fortunate enough to have access to most of the latest golf equipment available to date.
We don’t write reviews for anything we haven’t tested ourselves. We provide unique, un-biased, original test review write-ups so that you can get honest feedback about the newest gear, AND how it applies to certain golfers (and how it may or may not apply to you and where you’re currently at in your game).
You pretty much can’t “go wrong” with any of the new big name brand equipment out there, BUT certain clubs, gear, accessories, etc will work better for players of different tendencies and skill levels… so THAT’S what we want to help you out with, understanding WHY a certain piece of equipment will fit into your game, how it can help you, and why other pieces of equipment may NOT be for you and where you’re at right now.

Avid Golfer Seeking Scratch – Writer
James first started playing golf at age 11, hitting the links with Dad on the weekends and a summer youth golf league. Relocating to sunny Myrtle Beach turned golf into a passion (obsession) for him.
If he is not at home with his family, you will find him at the range or on course perfecting his game and testing out the newest offerings from a variety of different golf brands. Sporting a 10.6 handicap, his quest to scratch has a ways to go, but a big milestone of single digit is right around the corner!
