About Mike

Mike Abate is a PGA Golf Professional in the Carolinas Section. Mike turned Professional in 2000 and has played in numerous PGA sanctioned and Carolinas Section events. Not only is Mike an accomplished player, but he has also been nominated multiple times for the Carolinas PGA Player Development and Youth Player Development awards. Most recently, Mike helped lead PGA Junior League “Team Charlotte” to a National Championship in 2022!

Mike’s passion, knowledge, and continuing education for golf have allowed him to be a well respected teacher and mentor of the game. With his ability to cultivate the game of golf, teach the game of golf to youth, and operate the Impact Performance Golf Learning Center is one of the unique features that differentiates his programs from many other successful programs. My goal is to help the student improve and have fun in the process. A successful teacher is actually a great listener and learner.

Whether the student is a participant of the Impact Performance Golf Learning Center or an individual student, all students start off with a self-paced improvement path built on coaching while their goals come first. The objective is to measure the skill level of players. Provide advice and strategies for improving swing techniques and fundamentals. Establish an appropriate, balanced, and challenging competitive schedule and training regimen.
