Stan Utley, PGA

stanutley-300x255Stan Utley is one of the most well known and sought after short game instructors in golf. He is a PGA TOUR winner and currently ranks 14th according to Golf Digest’s “America’s 50 Greatest Teachers” – a poll of more than 1,500 teaching professionals from around the country.

Born in January, 1962, Stan Utley attended the University of Missouri where he was a three-time All-Big Eight selection and two-time All-American. After graduation, he turned pro in 1984 and joined the PGA TOUR winning the 1989 Chattanooga Classic. He also holds the PGA TOUR record for fewest putts in nine holes with six at the 2002 Air Canada Championship. Stan also competed on the Web.com Tour earning three victories – the 1993 NIKE Cleveland Open, the 1995 NIKE Louisiana Open and the 1995 NIKE Miami Valley Open.

Currently, Stan focuses most of his time on teaching. His list of current and former students reads like a who’s who of golfers on the PGA, Web.com, Champions and LPGA Tours including: Jay Haas, Scott Piercy, Bill Haas, Paige Mackenzie, Amanda Blumenherst, Kevin Streelman, Darren Clarke, Brandt Jobe, Sergio Garcia, Rocco Mediate, Alex Noran, Inbee Park, Paul McGinley and many more.

Utley’s passion is watching people “light up” when they have the experience of understanding and executing better golf through his instruction and encouragement. Utley begins each session by asking a series of questions to better comprehend a student’s playing history and goals. He then calls on his experience as a PGA TOUR player and instructor to share proven techniques for shooting lower scores in a simple, understandable way.

Stan has also written four instructional books – The Art of the Swing, The Art of Putting, The Art of the Short Game and The Art of Scoring – and developed a subscription-based video instruction website called Stan University (Stan U).

Stan Utley resides in Scottsdale, Arizona with his family and plays out of Grayhawk Golf Club. For continued updates, please visit www.facebook.com/StanUtley and twitter.com/StanUtley.
