About this pro

The Summit Golf Schools want each student to get the maximum instruction in every aspect of the game. From ball striking to pitching, chipping, putting and sand play, we’ll give you a personal analysis of your game. We want you to know “WHY”, so you will be able to make the proper correction. Most players would like to become more consistent. Our policy is to help you become more efficient! Consistency will come...

Tim Peightal is the Director of Operations at the Summit Golf School in Daytona Beach Florida. To his credit, he has students who have played the LPGA, Nike and various different mini tours. Peightal started his career at the Disney golf operations where he had the opportunity to observe and study some of the top instructors today. Those include Bob Toski, Jim Flick, Bill Strausbaugh and Davis Love Jr. Tim later worked with the 1928 U.S Open champion Johnny Farrell (at the country club of Florida) and the 1935 PGA champion Johnny Revolta (at the Evanston Golf club). Tim was also the head professional at Indiana Country Club for seven years before moving back to Florida to work as head professional at Family Golf and Sports club.

Finally, Tim was the Director of instruction at the United States Senior Golf Academy for six years, until starting Summit Golf Academy in 1995. Peightal’s goal as a teacher has been to find as many ways possible to make learning the game of golf fun. “After all is said and done,” he says, “It's the greatest game on earth.” Peightal feels that "Golf swings are like fingerprints, their all a little different".
