Cantigny Golf has welcomed Dundee-Crown graduate Greg Baresel to its staff of PGA professionals.
Baresel joins a comprehensive golf performance team at the Cantigny Golf Academy, which includes five other full-time instructors, a golf fitness expert, master clubfitter and sports/golf psychologist. The Academy is widely regarded as the region’s foremost golf practice, teaching and training center.
Baresel, 27, will conduct private and group lessons at Cantigny, and also serve as lead instructor for the PGA TOUR Academy Junior Camps at Cantigny Golf. He has eight years of golf coaching experience and has given more than 3,500 lessons in his career.
“Greg is a great addition to our professional team at the Academy,” said Connie DeMattia, Cantigny’s PGA director of instruction. “His knowledge of the golf swing and manner of communication are outstanding. Our customers will enjoy learning from Greg because his ideas are easy to understand.”
As an instructor, writer and speaker, Baresel has a knack for motivating his students and for making a demanding game seem less complicated. His clients include both beginning and advanced players.
“The key to consistency is having the body produce the most efficient swing that it can,” said Baresel. “But every player has a unique range of motion, and there is no perfect way to swing a golf club. I try to maximize a player’s ability to achieve their best performance on the golf course.”
Baresel contributes instructional articles for Golf Infuzion magazine and has appeared on local television and radio programs to provide golf tips. He is a frequent guest speaker at golf communities and golf shows. His personal website is golfwithgreg.com.
