About Michael

Pickett's Golf Services (PGS) was officially founded by Mike Pickett in 2021, however its roots began much earlier than that. Originally from Northeast Ohio and currently residing in Painesville, Ohio, Mike has two beautiful children, a daughter, Ella Brynn and a son, Griffin Alexander. One good thing that came out of 2020 was that Mike also married his longtime partner, Elizabeth. Mike's career in golf began before college when he knew throughout high school that he wanted to get into the golf business. He graduated from Kent State University in 2002 with a degree in Sports Management and quickly following that up with successful completion of schooling within the PGA of America in 2004. In addition to becoming a PGA Member in 2004, he also continued his education by earning "Certified" status within the PGA in both Golf Operations and Teaching & Coaching. Mike spent the next 12 years in the golf business leading golf operations for public and private clubs throughout Ohio including a Director of Operations title overseeing three golf courses throughout the state. During that tenure, Mike not only competed in professional golf tournaments, but also was responsible for organizing and executing thousands of golf events at varying levels. He also led the successful Junior Golf and Player Development programs at each facility while there. Unfortunately in 2014, Mike's Mother, who was a very significant influence on his life, passed away after a long battle with various health conditions. Mike led the successful push to honor his Mother's legacy by organizing multiple charity golf tournaments and fundraisers which collectively raised over $100,000 in charitable contribution towards PKD research. Beginning in 2022, Mike will be implementing Trackman Technology into all golf instruction provided
