Independent PGA-certified instructor Ken Carpenter imparts golf wisdom accrued through a distinguished career as a player and coach—including two professional victories and a seven-year coaching stint with LPGA tour winner Carin Koch—to help aspiring aces rein in their best golf game. During each playing lesson, Ken guides players through a 90-minute odyssey at one of Westin Kierland Golf Club’s three courses, proffering corrective tips in real time while also helping players work through course-management quandaries such as when to hit driver versus 3-wood, when to lay up versus when to swing for the green, and how to emotionally manipulate each club to compete for your affection. More technical teachings are best absorbed during private lessons, during which players can add a soaring flop shot to their repertoire or zero in on the mechanical maladies marring drives, pitches, and putts at the club’s immaculate practice facilities. Golfers yearning for invaluable repetitions as well as on-course advice can enlist today’s third option, which combines three one-hour sessions of intensive swing honing with the ninety-minute playing lesson for a golf-game overhaul more potent than drinking a 5-gallon vat of Arnold Palmers.

About Ken Carpenter
Over the course of a professional golf career dating back to 1990, PGA Teaching Professional Ken Carpenter has developed a talent for helping students of all stripes, from beginners to tour players on both the Nationwide and LPGA Tours. Today, Ken applies his teaching skills at Westin Kierland Golf Club, tweaking swings to address unnecessary backswing hitches and under-rotating hip turns that might be sacrificing distance off the tee or Olympic pommel-horse dismounts. Ken can incorporate video technology into the lessons to break down swing mechanics in order to play back in slow motion or pause to illustrate how much a divot resembles a silhouette of Rory McIlroy.
