Brian Manzella or Rob Noel?
In the NOLA area and have heard these are two of the best in the area. Have heard good and bad about both but curious if anyone here has experience with either one?

I like Brian a lot. His studio in Lakeview is awesome.

Don’t have any experience with Brian but i have plenty of experience with Rob and he is phenomenal. I currently see him regularly and he’s made some phenomenal changes and imo is as good as it gets in south Louisiana and one of the best in the state. Pullin, Leitz, and Noel are probably the best around.

Brads at squire. He coaches Sam Burns and a ton of other elite local amateurs. Better have a large wallet to get him regularly.

Depends on how you learn. Brian is very Cerebral but puts things into a very understandable and executable format. Rob is more Mechanical and positional.

But yes, Both great guys and get results(YRMV)

Just out of curiosity what does Brian cost? My guy at GOLFTEC just moved so I need someone new.

$200/hour. As someone mentioned, he is very cerebral and is a proponent of the golfing machine and Ben Doyle who was his instructor. He is very good at adapting to the player versus teaching everyone has to swing a certain way. He is also very good at diagnosing drills that are helpful.

He teaches at English Turn and City Park. But, he had a tech studio in West End portion of Lakeview too.

Had a hip replacement a year ago and through attempting to play and practice with it, I really screwed up my swing and felt awful. Took a lesson with Leitz and his studio is impressive but he totally relies on Trackman, which is interesting but I wanted help with the feel of my swing and we didn't work on any aspect of it.

Started going to Rob Noel about 6 months ago and everything we worked on was a 180 of what I was doing so it was a challenge but I was committed to getting back to where I was, which was a 2 handicap before the hip injury. Rob is very posture and lower body oriented or at least his is with me. Things like keeping my knees more in line in the backswing and at impact, lateral movements and where my weight is in my feet are some of the things we worked on initially. The most impactful thing he's changed is my path from the top, which is now inside and it's made a huge difference. The end goal is a draw swing with a fade finish. I'm just over 50 yrs old and my distances have increased about 10-15 yards per club with no equipment changes. Just keep in mind that he is not a bandaid guy. He does use Trackman but to justify what we're working on.

His initial session is $260 where he does an equipment assessment and after that, he's $150 an hour. I wouldn't take from anyone else.
