TONY MALATESTA, PGA PROFESSIONAL
A member of the Professional Golfers’ Association of America’s Quarter Century Club, Tony Malatesta has been in the golf industry for over 35 years. During that time, he has provided instruction to players of all skill levels and abilities from men’s and women’s Club Champions to women, men, seniors, and juniors just beginning their golf journey.

Tony’s teaching philosophy revolves around teaching the game of golf in a simple, effective, and fun manner. While basics like grip, stance, and posture are important fundamentals to all golf swings, Tony doesn’t employ a “one-size-fits-all” approach. He utilizes a combination of state-of-the-art video and launch monitor technology , along with verbal, visual, and kinesthetic techniques to help students grasp concepts and make changes more easily. In addition to teaching the mechanics of the golf swing, Tony emphasizes the importance of putting and chipping, and adds insight into other areas of the game such as course management, rules, etiquette, physical fitness, and club fitting.

Tony offers individual, series, group, and playing lessons. To make an appointment, contact Tony directly at 847-515-7682, or via email at tmalatesta@whispercreekgolf.com

PUTTING CLINIC
We all know that the object of the game is to "get the ball in the hole in the fewest number of strokes." The easiest way to accomplish this is to improve your putting. During this 60- Minute Putting Clinic, I'll help you have a better understanding of how to "read" greens, why you 3-putt, how to get a better feel for green speed, the best way to avoid 3-putts, and drills to help you make 90+% of your putts inside 3 feet with the ultimate goal of making more putts and lowering your scores.
