Austin Kopp, PGA, TPI - Owner
I have worked in the golf and fitness industries for over a decade. I was fortunate to work with a great team as a PGA Head Professional at a vibrant golf facility in Chicago area called The Preserve at Oak Meadows. During my time as Head Pro, we undertook a large-scale renovation that approached golf from a different perspective, and looked at how golf and nature can have a symbiotic relationship. The result was a property that won the Green Star award from Golf Digest as a beacon for how the two can not only co-exist but mutually benefit. Assisting in many aspects of the project showed me that with an end goal in mind, excellence can be achieved. My current goal is to create a facility and programs that show the symbiotic relationship of golf and fitness and how not only your game, but also your life can improve when both are focused together.
In my previous experience, I had the opportunity to teach golfers of all skill levels from top amateurs and college golfers to the true weekend warriors. I have worked with and developed programs for golfers with varying physical abilities and throughout all stages of the life span. I believe in developing programs that engage golfers and emphasize the enjoyment of playing golf.
My teaching philosophy is to create customized, customer-centric plan that engages not only the mechanics of the swing, but is also tailored to the individual goals of the client. I want to capitalize on their strengths and efficiently improve weaknesses. I will utilize key metrics and data to ensure we are taking the best path to success.
