Milo Lines Golf
Meet the TEAM
Since my youth I have had a love of athletics. In my early years I was a standout baseball player, but due to an elbow injury my dreams of playing professional ball were dashed. After a bit of coaxing from my father I decided to learn the game of golf and found I was what some might call a natural. I won two amateur events in my first summer of competitive play and impressed the golf coach at Utah Valley University so much that I was offered a place on his team and a scholarship. I earned Second Team All-America and Academic All-America honors, as well as a B.S. in International Business while attending UVU. After graduating, I turned professional and played full time on several tours; including The Grey Goose Gateway tour, The A.G. Spanos Tour, and the Canadian Tour. I won several events, and rarely missed a cut during the two years I played full time and I have since won several PGA section events and qualified to play in the PGA National Championship multiple times.
I have studied athletic movement in most sports and have learned that there is crossover in most of them especially sports involving hitting and throwing. Golfletics is a word that I coined to describe my teaching. My goal as your teacher is to help you learn to apply the athletic skills you already have and to teach you the skills you need in order to improve as a golfer. No matter your skill level I know I can help you to play better golf. Let me help you to bring out your inner athlete. I have been a Professional since 2005 and in 2011 joined the team at Superstition Mountain as a Golf Instructor teaching under Mike Malaska. My understanding of human movement, attention to detail, and ability to explain complexities in terms everybody can understand, gives me a unique aptitude for instruction. In 2009 I focused exclusively on Golf Instruction and work with players of all abilities, including multiple PGA and LPGA Touring Professionals. I love teaching golf and spend my time studying the game and developing new ways to help you.
I’m a 56-year-old father of two and recently learned I’ll be a proud grandfather. Like Milo, I played every sport you could shake a stick at(no pun intended) as a youth. I played competitive amateur golf ranging from the San Diego City Amateur to the Michelob Ultra Tour. Still, I chose to raise a family rather than taking it to the next level.
In the early 2000’s I started coaching mini-tour players ranging from the Golden State tour to the PGA Tour Latin America. Since then, my thirst for knowledge has taken me to learn from the likes of Milo Lines, Dana Dahlquist to George Gankas, and many more. I received Level 1 and 2 certification with Swing Catalyst from Dr. Scott Lynn. What I’ve learned is that golf and the golf swing is the simplest game we make hard. Due to everyone being so different, I find fun in the challenge of finding a swing that works for you. Yes, there are some simple truths in the golf swing, but a million ways to get there and a million different ways to explain it. Let’s have fun and do this together!
When I began taking lessons at the age of seven from Kevin Joseph, PGA in Brunswick, Maine, I had no idea I would ultimately be coaching the game myself. As a junior golfer I won the Maine State Junior Championship in all three age groups. During my four years at Elms College in Massachusetts I also won multiple individual titles and our team competed in the 2014 NCAA Division III Championship. My 20+ years in the sport, both in competition and coaching, has given me so many amazing memories and the opportunity to meet, learn from, and work with prominent figures in our sport. You can also now find me caddying on the LPGA Tour for my girlfriend, Dana Finkelstein. I can thank my successful playing career, unwavering desire to learn, and my incredible mentors for the opportunity to now give back and coach the game I love. Milo Lines is an exceptional coach and I am thrilled to partner with him on his online academy.
Zach played athletics all his childhood and colligate years. Playing soccer and baseball through college, he was no stranger to hard work as one of the smaller players on the team. Zach used this hard work to harness his passion for the body and learn why things work and how things improve. While attending Arizona State University, Zach aspired to become a physical therapist. He worked in three different PT settings where he learned the specific needs of professionals, seniors, juniors, and everyday working folk. He gained a grasp on the things he saw work and the techniques that resonated most with his coaching philosophy. Titleist and his Level 3 Certification have also given him the tools to identify the needs of a golfer and the understanding of the physicality needed to play well. B.S.
