Kyle Winn Class A PGA Teaching Professional

Kyle grew up in Sacramento, CA and though teaching golf is now his profession he actually didn’t pick it as his number 1 sport until he was 16 years old.  From that point on his parents knew he was one of three places, home, school, or the golf course.  For almost 20 years now Kyle have worked in the golf business, from a cart boy at Ancil Hoffman Golf Course, to an Assistant Golf Professional at Delaveaga Golf Course, to Head Professional at Half Moon Bay Golf Links, and now Golf Instructor/Coach at Golden Gate Park Golf Course; he has enjoyed every single minute in this industry.  He recently celebrated his 11 year anniversary as a part of the Professional Golfer’s Association of America and this past March marked his 6th year as a Class A PGA Member. Away from the golf course he enjoys cooking, baking, traveling, and plays on two competitive billiards teams.

Working with mostly beginners of all ages, Kyle tries and builds a solid swing from the ground up by introducing fundamentals to create a great golf swing.  As students progress, Kyle likes to get the students onto the golf course as soon as possible to start enjoying this great game!!!!
