Golf is a game that once learned you can play your entire life and the object of the game is to have fun. Mike Sullivan is now the Pro PGA director at Kendall Academy at The Meadows at Grand Valley State University and he takes that philosophy to heart.
A graduate from Ferris State University's Professinal Golf Management program Sullivan is now happy to be at Kendall Academy and associated with Grand Valley. Sullivan says he'd like to grow the academy and get some interns into the mix.
Sullivan has worked with numerous legends in golf - from instructors to legends like Sam Snead. Sullivan even beat Sam Snead while working at a course where Snead was a member.
"My playing partner and I happened to take Sam and his partner for a little bit of money," Sullivan said. "I was just a snot nosed bag room kid. Sam refused to pay me, so he paid my partner to pay me."
With a quarter-century of experience on the greens Sullivan is looking to help people improve their golf game.
When it comes to helping people with their golf game , Sullivan understands that there are many different ways to swing the golf club and no way is necessarily wrong, that's why when he does to correct people on their golf swing unless asked for he wants the game to remain fun.
The three things Sullivan always preaches are good grip, good posture and good balance. In order to ac hive these things Sullivan is always happy to give instruction. Along with basic pointers and instruction he also teaches clinics which he likes to mix up a bit.
