Mike schy, PGA, Director of Instruction

Mike Schy is the current coach of the 2015 NCAA Men’s Individual and 2015 U.S. Amateur Champion as well as a host of other promising collegiate and junior golfers.

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 the winner of both the 2015 NCAA Individual Championship and the 2015 U.S. Amateur. This accomplishment has only been achieved 5 times in history.

Mike’s love for Golf began very early and he was ranked as a top 4 Junior golfer In Northern California in 1978. He went on to represent the North team in the California North/South team matches as well as the Junior Americas cup team. Mike was also Medalist in the 1978 US Junior Amateur Qualifying. Mike then went on to play golf for Fresno State University from 1979 thru 1984 where Fresno state ranked in the top 20 college teams, 4 out of the 5 years and set a record at the Fresno city golf championships winning by 12 shots in 1983.

Mike became a Member of the PGA of America in 1990 and represented the Northern California PGA Cup team in 1992.

Mike has been a PGA, golf instructor and coach for 29 years and has taught thousands of students from beginners to Tour Players. Early on in his career he was fortunate enough to work with PGA tour star and friend Bill Glasson, winner of 7 PGA Tour events. Bill, who is now on the Champions Tour, still visits with Mike from time to time asking for his insight and expertise with his game.

Mike works with some of the best Juniors and Amateurs in the country&emdash;junior state champions, both Girls and Boys and College All Americans. He takes pride in helping elevate aspiring juniors to college careers and has assisted players in acquiring over $1,000,000 in scholarships at schools like West Point Academy and Nevada Reno in recent years.

The Golf Performance Institute is known for helping develop top Juniors, Amateurs and Professionals under Mike’s direction. On any day you might see a PGA tour winner, All-American college star and aspiring Junior Champion hanging out and learning at the Golf Performance Institute.

Mike is known as a teacher to the Teaching Pro and Tour Caddy. His full swing, club fitting, putting and green reading techniques, and philosophy has been sought after all over the world culminating at the 2012 World Golf Conference where Mike was a keynote speaker and presenter in Barcelona, Spain. Teaching pros visit Mike often, knowing he is always on the cutting edge of technology and trying develop innovative ways to bring new golfers to the game along with developing the aspiring junior, amateur, and professional.

Many years ago, a man named Homer Kelley wondered exactly what those things were. Nearly thirty years later his book, The Golfing Machine, appeared and revolutionized golf teaching. 

The Golfing Machine became one of the most highly-regarded and authoritative instructional texts in golf history. It has provided countless instructors with the familiarity and understanding of the golf swing to thousands of students.

When you learn from me, you are learning from someone who can combine a very sophisticated understanding of the complexities of the golf swing, with a teaching style and communication skills that will allow you to understand, simply and plainly, how you can consistently hit golf shots that are straight and true. I will focus on you and your level of expertise and understanding, and will work with you to bring out the very best!

Mike’s students are having an enormous impact on the golf world right now. The success they are having is nothing short of amazing!
