5 June 2018
The Mike Schy Golf Performance Institute specializes in the coaching and development of collegiate and junior golfers. Mike's teaching philosophy and methods have helped many outstanding young golfers achieve a high level of success, including PGA Tour professional and recent Memorial Tournament Champion Bryson DeChambeau. In 2015, Bryson became the fifth player in history to win both the NCAA Individual Championship and the U.S. Amateur Championship in the same year, with Mike as his coach.
