LEAD COACH – MICHAEL PROTHE

As a current technical representative for TaylorMade and recent golf services employee for Inverness Club Michael has experience in numerous areas of the golf industry.
When Michael was asked what motivates him to work for The First Tee he said “My favorite part of The First Tee is the curriculum and how they expect us to instruct it. I love how we are able to let the participants work through their struggles and ask open ended questions with us steering them to the answer but not just telling them.”
