"Over the years, I have paid great attention to my health--not only for my quality of golf but for my quality of life. I have worked with some of the world's finest from the fields of fitness and nutrition. A common link among people considered the best in their chosen fields is they give you guidance for today but, more importantly, hope for tomorrow. This is Andy and Ivy's goal...I applaud them for reaching out to everyone in need of a lifestyle change, but mainly to those battling chronic diseases who are searching for help and hope."--Jack Nicklaus, golf legend
