Under Jim Hardy and Chris O’ Connell of the Plane Truth Golf with influence from Bernie Najar, Krista Dunton, Josh Zander, Kevin Roman, Shane LeBaron, Stephen Puryear, Andy Traynor and John James Vallely all fellow Plane Truth instructors, Carl has learned what is important to help a golfer reach their potential.

The city of Norwich, England is where Carl was born. Norwich is full of history with a large castle framing the Norwich skyline and roman ruins defining the old city. Lions, dragons and shields take many historical places in English history along with knights. The lion is symbolic in the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S.Lewis, in the character Aslan. One place where lions, dragons and other animals are memorialized is in the coats of arms of cities and families across the country of England. The three main influences of the Carl Sarahs Golf logo are: the English lion, like the English football team and the Norwich City coat of arms; the shield, which every good coat of arms has and; the crown, which kings and queens have worn for centuries. Carl is very proud to be English and cheers for his English teams and the British golfers that play on the PGA Tour (Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Paul Casey, Justin Rose). The Ryder Cup is a great event and Carl can't help but cheer for the European team.
