Mahoning Valley Country Club now offering lessons.
Mahoning Valley Country Club is pleased to announce that Mike Furey, PGA Golf Professional, will now be available for lessons.
Mike Furey has been around the game of golf for over 15 years. His love of the game started when was just 8 years old and has been a part of his life ever since. Growing up being a multi-sport athlete, it was tough to focus all of his time on just one sport. However, golf has developed into his true passion and now is his main focus as a career.
After graduating from Lock Haven University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Sports Administration, he decided to pursue his dreams of playing professional golf. This included spending winters in Orlando, FL where he developed his knowledge of the golf swing and greatly improved his game. He competed on several golf tours including the Florida Professional Golf Tour and The Dakotas Tour. Mike’s most recent success was advancing to the Sectional qualifying round for the 2012 U.S. Open.
Mike’s concepts of the golf swing come mainly for his time spent with Mike Bender, who was most recently named as one of the top 5 PGA teachers in America. Not only did he learn the proper techniques of the game from this experience, but Bender also taught him the most efficient ways to implement changes in practice in order to see the fastest results.
Mike’s philosophy on teaching will be to develop solid fundamentals in his students and use each individual’s personal strengths to their advantage. Please call the Pro Shop at 570-386-2588 to arrange for a golf lesson.
