I am currently residing in semi-retirement in Galena Illinois and am affiliated with Galena Golf Club, Galena High School golf team, assistant coach and NathanStudtmanngolf.com. I am available for both indoor and outdoor coaching for golfers of all levels. I specialize in short game coaching, but am also skilled in full swing development. I use state of the art video, and launch monitor technology in coaching golfers to better understand how body movement and the golf club affects the flight of the ball. I strive to make the game more enjoyable by first finding out what your goals are for your golf game and then create a solution and design a plan to get the desired results. Learning golf and improving your game can begin at any age, it is a constant work in progress, and that’s the value of having a PGA Coach!
