My name is Thom Slusher, and I have been a golf instructor in the Central Michigan area for 10 years, and with 25 years of teaching experience overall. My teaching philosophy is to make improvements on the individuals swing, rather than teach with a generic "one size fits all concept". My passion for the sport came when I was very young and I would walk to the golf course after school playing 9 holes almost every day, and eventually getting a job at the course to be able to play for free. After graduating from high school I went on to attend Ferris State University for the Professional Golf Management program which equipped me with the skills necessary to teach the sport I love to younger generations. My goal is that I can help you or your child love the sport of golf just as much as I do, with the help of instruction, and on course play.
