Santa Barbara Golf Lessons by Michael Wolseley

Michael Wolseley

  • 30 years professional experience
  • 33 years teaching experience at UCSB; The Prieure Golf Club and Stade Francais, Paris; Geneva Golf Club
  • Over 45,000 individual lessons, individual and team coach
  • Course record holder at seven golf courses

I have greater accuracy and distance as well as a better short game after working with Michael for just a couple of months.
He focuses not only on the mechanics of the swing, but is also able to help students break through the psychological barriers
than interfere with change.
