Ollen Stephens, PGA Master Professional, Instruction

Founder Power of the Golf Ball, Northfield

Ollen gains strength from his wife, Michelle and his two daughters, Maria and Gabriella. While they live in a Chicago suburb, his roots run deep to his family’s Missouri farm. Ollen has always been on a journey. He’s a build it and fix it guy with a drive to understand how things work. As a marathon runner, he’s experienced in setting long term goals and achieving them. He seeks continuous development and deep understanding. Through his PGA Master Professional Mentors, he continues to help golfers of all levels gain control and improve ball flight.  To put Ollen’s journey and background in perspective, there are approximately 40,000 golf pros in the US. PGA Golf Professionals account for 27,000 of these pros. A select few seek further instructional theory and practice, representing 500 of these professionals as PGA Certified Professionals, Instruction. And a mere .4% or 207 go even deeper with an immersion in state of the art instruction. They reach the pinnacle as PGA Master Professionals, Instruction.

Ollen achieved his PGA Master Professional, Instruction status in 2015.

He gained certification through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) to help him better understand how the body relates to the golf swing. He has given more than 20,000 hours of lessons, coaching golfers to all sorts of state, club and individual championships. His passion flows to help golfers of all levels rather than a specialization with only elite players. In the course of writing his book, he tested the ideas with his Elite Program participants. Of the seven players, three shot par in a tournament. The players had seven individual tournament wins. The ideas in his book work. Have fun with the process. Gain the control you need and you’ll get the ball flight (and lower scores) you desire.

Chris Kendall PGA, MPT Co-Founder of Dynamic Golf Institute TPI Certified Golf Fitness Instructor CHEK Golf Bio-mechanic Chris entered the golf business as a physical therapist treating golf related injuries.  His unique skill set of being a physical therapist, a Titleist Performance Institute certified golf fitness instructor, and a Class A PGA golf professional allows Chris to understand not only the biomechanics of the golf swing but also how any physical limitations could lead to poor performance and injury.  Chris understands how to help his students achieve a “safe and solid” golf swing to achieve long-term results. Today, Chris utilizes his skills to work with golfers of all ages and abilities.  In his teaching, he helps golfers create “feels” for themselves so they can avoid mechanical swing thoughts.  He does this through a combination of drills, technology, and exercises.  In addition to teaching full time, Chris still works with golfers that are injured or want/need to increase their mobility and strength to play at a higher level.
