Golf instructor Mike Sullivan imparts 14 years of teaching wisdom to improve the long and short games of aspiring golfers. One-hour private lessons take place at the 401 Par golf course and make use of advanced video swing analysis to assist players in visualizing the areas in need of improvement. By replaying their motions on a monitor, smartphone, or backyard JumboTron, players are able to step outside the physical self and view their techniques from a new perspective.
During the course of their private tutelage, students undergo a short-game skill testing, an equipment inspection, and a fitness evaluation—all designed to custom tailor a training regimen based on each golfer's inherent abilities. Unlimited balls and use of the driving range for one month allow for intersession craft honing and the application of newly acquired techniques. Group lessons lend additional focus to swinging and putting prowess within the presence of other tutees.
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.
