Joining our team of instruction at Currie golf club this year is Keith Geiling. Keith has been playing and teaching golf for 20+ years and most recently is partnered with Science of the Swing (A STEM Initiative from the Great Lakes Regional Alliance).
Keith found a passion for golf swing instruction through the pursuit of his own golf improvement. “I remember receiving my first golf lesson and also seeing my golf swing on camera for the first time. I’ve been hooked ever since."
Keith went on to develop his golf game and learn from local instructors for him and his students. He has competed in local and state wide golf tournaments including previously winning The City Championship at Currie Golf Club.
Since partnering with Science of the Swing, Keith has learned and certified with some of the most innovative technology for golf which include:
Keith welcomes the approach of "Instruction through Data"
“The whole world has moved in the direction of technology and numbers, with sports and especially the game of golf being no different.”
“The ability to look at movements of the body and equipment numbers through the eyes of technology gives us answers beyond the naked eye”
“The goal of improving someones golf game can have many different layers, but we can give the student some answers of where to start through some innovative science and technology if they choose”For more information please contact Keith at KRGeiling@gmail.com or by phone at 989.430.6047
