Sue started playing golf at the age of sixteen, and shortly thereafter, she met Carl. She credits Carl's methodology in giving her a greater understanding of the fundamentals that need to be present in the golf swing.
Sue adopted the "One Move" method in her game which made it possible for her to be awarded a college scholarship at Longwood University (1980-1984). A Division II College All American, she competed during her four years of college and was captain of the team in her junior and senior years. She qualified for the Division I NCAA Tournament in 1984, and received Longwood University Golf Team's MVP award in 1984.
Because of her dedication, understanding and passion for this method, Sue began her professional career in 1985 as Carl's assistant at North Shore Country Club in Glen Head, NY, and to this day she continues to teach at North Shore. Over the years, she has competed successfully in many Metropolitian tournaments.
For nearly thirty years, the "One Move" has remained at the core of her teaching. As a result, she has been able to provide countless students with a better understanding of the golf swing, and enthusiastically develop their potential in this game of physical and mental skill.
Mike Darrell, PGA
I was born in Montreal, Canada. I attended Otterbein College ( now University) in Columbus Ohio and graduated in 1973. I was first introduced to the One Move system by Gene Borek in Florida in 1975. I ultimately worked for Gene at Metropolis CC in White Plains, NY from 1980 to 1983. I then went to work for Carl at North Shore CC from 1986 to 1988. Those years were obviously very important for me. Gene was responsible for helping me to become a Head Golf Professional as well as helping me understand and teach the One Move system. Carl of course helped me fine tune my teaching. Along the way I worked at 6 different golf clubs in Florida, Montreal and New York before getting my first Head Professional position in 1990. I am Currently the Director of Golf at Mill Pond Golf Course in Long Island, New York.
The One Move system not only makes me a better teacher than I could ever have been using some other information, but I also became a much better player because of it. My low competitive score is 63. I won the Senior Metrpopolitan PGA Championship (a title that I share with Carl), The Metropolitan Senior Head Pro Championship and in 2008 I qualified for and played in the Senior US Open.
My career would have been much different had I not met Gene and been introduced to One Move. I am tremendously grateful to have learned the truth about the golf swing and blessed to be able to pass the information on to my students.
