Mike's Golf Lesson Philosophy

From some of my past clients...

I love to teach adult, junior, senior, and group golf lessons to golfers of all ages and abilities. My passion is to help grow the game of golf for generations of the future. I have been blessed to be able to play golf for 60 years, teach golf for 25 years, and to have played in professional golf tournaments for 30 years. My passion is to be artistic on the golf course. To be able to visualize the golf shot and then perform it. I have turned that passion into a complete study of Dave Pelz’s Short Game and Putting Bibles. I have studied the teachings of Top 100 Coaches like Butch Harmon, Sean Foley, and Hank Haney. I have learned that keeping it simple and staying connected is best. Let me show you how! I am a PGA Associate, certified by the United States Golf Teaching Federation, certified by Titleist and Callaway as a ball and club fitter. Knowing the characteristics of the golf ball and the fitting of the clubs allows me the flexibility to give you great advise with your swing as we improve your game. I want to see that smile and excitement when you hit a good shot, so I will use all my resources to make that happen. That is a guarantee. I pride myself in that I can teach all abilities. I take on juniors as young as 6 years old and seniors as old as 83. My ability and experience adapting your swing to you,
