When I first met Mike in the Fall of 2009 at the UCSD golf team tryouts, I was immediately amazed by his impressively vast knowledge of the game of golf. Mike’s 30+ years of golfing experience encompasses the entire golfing spectrum: he has been a top junior golfer, a touring professional golfer, a top collegiate golfer, a Hall-of-Fame inducted NCAA golf coach, and is presently a legendary private golf professional, who is without a doubt one of the best in Southern California. Mike’s mastery of all of the aspects of golf is just one part of what makes him such a great teacher; unlike most golf teachers, Mike also possesses the rare ability to convey even the most complicated, technical aspects of the golf swing to his students in ways that are easy to replicate and to understand.
Now, if you think Mike’s mastery of the golf swing is impressive, just wait until you get to the short game! Mike has been commended countless times by golf professionals and amateurs alike for his short game prowess, and has even earned the unofficial title of “Best Bunker Player in San Diego County” multiple times. No matter what you are struggling with in your short game, Mike will be able to help you improve in no time.
If you are looking for a golf professional who has years of teaching experience, has played on “The Big Stage,” has taught players of all ages and abilities, is able to convey information and tips in ways that you can actually understand, and is a kind, respectful, humble person both on and off the course, then Mike Wydra should be at the top of your list.
Mike has helped make me a better golfer and a better person, and I feel very lucky to have had him as my golf coach.
