Mike Mandakas is a PGA Instructor, Coach, and Trainer that has been a member of the PGA since 2005. He works with all levels of players from beginners to Tour Level players. Mike uses the best technology available through video analysis and data capturing to help develop players. Golf Lessons are certainly the most utilized service but other offerings are available to help golfers and athletes in Golfer Performance through Biomechanical, Mental, and Physical Training. My time splits between my Indoor Facility in Willowbrook where I have most of my technology and outdoors during the season for Driving Range, Short Game and Putting Work and On Course Instruction.
I enjoy helping others reach short term and long term goals. Whether the golfer is a beginner or elite player, I enjoy helping them improve and make the game more enjoyable to them.
The fitting wasn't rushed and Mike knows how to select the right equipment for your swing. I would highly recommend.
Mike is very knowledgeable of the golf swing, works very well with the abilities of the player. He has an excellent equipment and computer technology to chart your swing.
Mike was wonderful with my 12 year old son. He was a beginner and Mike was extremely patient and had lots of strategies and tools to work on specific skills.
Just an overall great experience with mike. He made me feel comfortable as if we’ve know each other forever. Mike explained everything thoroughly and gave reasons why I should be doing what he suggests. I’m very happy and will continue my lessons with mike until my game improves.
My typical process begins with a short or thorough evaluation of the student. I will start by having my student fill out his section of a golfer profile, then I will fill in the rest during the evaluation and session. I will check the players physical and golf strengths and weaknesses while finding out what some of his/her short term and long term goals are that will lead into the lesson/session. After the session I will send a follow up email and discuss an instructional plan and plan for practice in between lessons.

I have worked with all levels of players from Juniors to Seniors and Beginners to Tour Level Players.
I always want my players to have a short term and long term plan. I would also my students to know what kind of time commitment they want to put forth.
