About Dale Ketola

Dale Ketola grew up in Greenwood, SC. He has had the opportunity to be around and compete against a lot of great players throughout his college and professional career including Dustin Johnson, Lucas Glover, Jonathan Byrd, Lucas Glover, DJ Trahan, Johnson Wagner, and Brenden De Jonge just to name a few. Seeing these great players in action and learning what makes them great has been one of the biggest assets to how he teaches the game. He began playing competitive golf at the age of ten. At Emerald High School in Greenwood he was a four time All State performer. Dale played his college golf at Coastal Carolina University under the tutiledge of Donald Clement and Allen Terrell. He was a two time All Big South award winner and twice made the All Academic Team. Currently he is an active member in the Carolinas PGA Section and competes in numerous events.

After graduating from Coastal Carolina with a degree in Marketing, he achieved Class A Membership into the PGA of America in 2008. Dale has learned a tremendous amount about the golf swing and teaching from Greg Norman and his Academy in Myrtle Beach, SC, Andrew Rice at Berkeley Hall in Bluffton, SC, and Dr. Jim Suttie.

Dale has almost eleven years of teaching experience on the Grand Strand from his work at Bay Tree Golf Plantation, Pawleys Plantation, and the Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy. A simple common sense approach with an emphasis on impact and scoring has led to his success. He has taught a wide range of students over the years including beginners, juniors, club members, ladies, high school, college players, as well as professionals.

Dale really enjoys learning more about the game through books, seminars, and watching other great teachers in action as he updates his own personal philosophy and methods. He has been using the V1 professional teaching software since 2004 in his teaching as he updates his swing library.

Dear Jeff

Regarding Dale:  What a wonderful person and remarkable instructor!!!  Can’t say enough good things about him.  His ability to diagnose minor and major flaws in my swing and Alex did not take him very long.   We each had plenty of good video and discussion twice a  day and the before and after video was really good.  Each of us were able to modify our swing just enough to see it on video and on the course.  Dale played with us 2 days and if you have not played with him, you should.  OMG, he can play up a storm.  A great example of what and how a PGA instructor should perform.  Don’t let him slip away from your stable of instructors.  He is good!!!   He made the trip a complete success and we enjoyed every minute of our lessons and feedback from him.

 I had several other golf schools in mind before selecting yours, and I can honestly say that it was absolutely the right decision.

 Sincerely,

Charles Brown
