Mary's Coaching Philosophy: "Where Learning is FUN Results Guaranteed!"

- Every golfer is special, so our coaching is specifically tailored to
each student's unique needs.
- People learn and remember best when they are both engaged and enjoying
what they are, thus we provide a fun and safe environment for that to occur.
- Developing sound fundamentals is critical to skill development.
- Mistakes are OK- when there are no mistakes, there is no learning.
- We teach you the "whole game" and "how" to play the game.

Greg Nikolai

 
Greg Nikolai is a PGA of America since 1989 and has been associated with Missing Links for that entire time as an employee (Head Professional/GM) to an independent Golf Instructor.

Over the ensuing years, Greg has taught many players from beginners to College Level Champions, through his position as Head Golf Coach at Concordia University in Mequon.  Currently the school has both the Men’s and Women’s Individual Conference Champions along with the current Team Title for the Women’s team as well.  The Women’s team will be competing in early May for a chance to become the Division III National Champions. The two team combined have 5 all conference players for the 2017 -2018 seasons, in addition to a number of individual & team tournament victories.

Greg’s teaching style is to attempt to keep it simple for the student and to encourage some form of daily practice to encourage personal improvement.  Greg uses the Manual de la Torre system of teaching to swing the golf club head using the upper arms to initiate the swing and to stay in balance and control of the player’s body & club in an effort to control the flight of the golf ball.

Greg uses a number of teaching aids and props to assist with the desired swinging motion of the club and how it strikes the ball through the impact position.

Greg resides in Grafton with his wife Mary and their 2 college age children Lauren (Concordia) & Chad (UW- Whitewater).
