About Michael

Originally from Utah, Michael Lewis is currently the Director of Instruction at Walt Reilly’s in Bend, Oregon. He is a Class ‘A’ PGA Professional and was elected for membership in 1999. While he was still in golf operations, Michael was named the 2005 Utah Section Teacher of the Year. In 2006 he decided to go into instruction full time and was hired by Nicklaus Academies and named the Director of Instruction for the Nicklaus Academy at Pronghorn. In 2010, after four years with Nicklaus Academies Michael went into business for himself and opened the Taylormade Performance Lab of Utah and two years later opened Tetherow Academy. Mike is also a Master Instructor for the Patriot Golf Foundation, hosting military veterans for golf school outings across the country. Michael started teaching the game at the age of 18 and has spent his entire career focused on learning all he can about the art and science of instruction. He has conducted numerous instructional seminars for both the Utah Section and Pacific Northwest Sections of the PGA. A member of the Taylormade National Fitters Council, Michael has an extensive background in club-fitting and knows how properly fit equipment can pay major dividends for the student. In his 30 years of instruction experience he is most proud of the fact that 48 of his students have earned college scholarships to play college golf.
