Mike Sullivan Golf School

With an expansive knowledge of the game and plenty of experience and accolades, golf instructor Mike Sullivan's teaching philosophy is quite simple: "I don't believe that any one teaching method is best for every golfer. I teach players the essential skills that are required to play great golf."

Private lessons, which take place at 401 Par Golf, often incorporate some form of video analysis, a fitness and equipment evaluation, and a study of course management, which breaks down when to attack the flag, when to lay up, and when to discreetly throw the ball down the cart path. Short-game clinics focus on a different approach shot each week, rotating among such skills as short putting, lag putting, pitching, and a contest out on the par 3 course. Mike also teaches specialized lessons for women, juniors, and cyborg 7-irons looking to enroll in the online academy.
