Add 10 to 15 yards on my drive.
Kelly Mitchum
Lead Instructor, Pinehurst Golf Academy

Master my unconventional golf swing. I step into it like a baseball slugger, reroute the swing three times throughout. There are many different ways to get the job done. I wouldn’t teach it this way, but I can master my own.
Jeffrey Wojtusik
Assistant Golf Professional, Pinehurst Nos. 1-8

As my children (ages 3 and 7) continue to enjoy the game and ask to go to the golf course, my hope is to take them as much as possible. In turn, I hope their excitement for the game inspires me to get better and to compete at a higher level in tournaments.
Cole Stiles
Pro Manager, Pinehurst No. 8

Play more golf. It makes no difference the number of holes I get to play at one time, I just want to get out and play. While trying to balance family and working at a golf course, it is easy for me to forget how much I enjoy playing and one of the primary reasons I wanted to become a golf professional. Instead of going 1-2 weeks without playing, it would be great to get out and play 1-2 times a week.
Adam Osterbur, PGA
Head Golf Professional/Manager, Pinehurst No. 6

Finally beat Mrs. Havercamp….
Adam Baj
Assistant Golf Professional, Pinehurst Nos. 1-5

Practice better course management and forget about the little mistakes that happen on the golf course. I will do this by focusing on one shot and one hole at a time.
Paul Rezuke
Assistant Golf Professional, Pinehurst No. 6

Work harder on my putting and short game. I also plan to play in more tournaments in 2016.
Anthony J. Cordes
Assistant Golf Professional, Don Padgett Learning Center

My resolution is to not only get better as a player but as an instructor as well. I hope to play and practice more to help myself get better, and to teach more often so that I can improve my coaching skills.
Matt Lunden
Assistant Golf Professional, Pinehurst No. 7

Walk and carry more rounds in 2016. I also resolve to hit short game shots from difficult lies closer to hole more often in 2016.
Ryan Duckworth
Assistant Golf Professional, Pinehurst No. 7

Improve the driving range experience for our members and guests, so they remember Maniac Hill as a world class practice facility. It is the original after all.
Scott Moody
Assistant Golf Professional, Don Padgett Learning Center

Practice like you play, making it a point to go through my pre-shot routine on each shot while practicing, and to finish all of Kelly Mitchum’s short game cards.
Robert Hoadley
Assistant Golf Professional, Don Padgett Learning Center
