MICHAEL TURNBULL has been teaching golf since 1977 and has been teaching golf at Brookview since 2005. He was the PGA Head Professional at Balboa Park GC in San Diego, CA and the PGA Head Professional and Golf Course Manager at Baker National Golf Course in Medina, MN. Michael has also served as a teaching professional at Rolling Green CC in Hamel, MN, and at SeaCliff CC in Huntington Beach, CA.

Michael emphasizes learning by doing, rather than thinking about doing. You will learn from each and every shot you hit. You won’t have to memorize a series of movements, remember a lot of instructions, or try really hard to do anything right. Students will feel the differences between swings that work and swings that don't, instead of trying so hard to swing the “right” way.
