Mike Byrd
Class "A" PGA
General Manager/
Head Professional  
(540) 752-0963

Mike has been instructing golfers for 26 years starting at the age of 17.  With over 4000 students taught added to his resume, his methods have developed greatly in that time, however his enthusiasm to help his students maximize their abilities has not.  Mike spends much of his off time training for 1/2 marathons and lifting weights and takes that same athletic training to each lesson. Believing that golf is an athletic sport, he spends a lot of time with each student developing the motions outside of the swing.
