Professional Golf Instruction with LPGA Instructor
Meet Sheri Kirkpatrick
Hi! My name is Sheri Kirkpatrick and I am a mid-western girl at heart! I grew up in Anoka, Minnesota but have resided in Mesa, Arizona since 1983. I came to Arizona to attend Arizona State University where I earned my BA in Math Education. I taught Math for a couple of years and then "retired" to being the mother of four amazing children! I absolutely LOVED my job, but as my kids were growing older, I decided to return to the workforce. Although my education was in teaching mathematics, I decided to take my teaching skills and pursue another dream. Growing up in a "golfing family", golf quickly became my passion and I officially joined the LPGA in 2007. I am currently a Class A LPGA Golf Professional. I am also certified TPI (Titliest Performance Institute) -- Levels 1&2, and a SNAG (Starting New At Golf) Instructor. I currently provide Individual and group golf instruction at Arizona Golf Resort as an independent contractor in Mesa, Arizona from August through May and at Ridgewood Golf Course in Longville, Minnesota during June and July.
I have always been a firm believer that golf is a game that involves much more than just the physical aspect of the game. Although the physical logistics are a very important component of golf, or any other competitive sport, I believe that the mind and soul play an equally important role in our performance and enjoyment of the games we play, including the game of life! I am SOOO excited to be teaming up with Laurel Lee and Antonia Pashos and their individual expertise to bring MindBodySoulGolfClinics to you all! So...as Adam Sandler says in Happy Gilmore..."tap tap tap...tap it in"!

About Sheri's Teaching Style
Sheri believes that the body is the most important tool in your bag! Everyone is built differently and therefore the golf swing should be built around you as an individual. Sheri is TPI certified and incorporates their program into her lessons. Titleist Performance Institute is one of the largest golf fitness programs available today and provides golf-specific health and fitness information from the world's leading experts in the game. TPI is the leader in elite player development. Through their evaluation process, Sheri will assess your present fitness state in the areas of mobility, stability, and flexibility. Based on the evaluation, you will be given a golf fitness handicap. She will then build you a personalized fitness program which will help you improve these areas allowing your body to make the necessary movements required in the golf swing. Sheri also uses video analysis with the V1 Pro System to closely analyze your swing showing areas of needed improvement. Video analysis is a great way for you to see the things you are working on in your swing.
Sheri believes that by improving your golf fitness, building solid basic fundamentals, and learning how to improve the mental aspect of your game, everyone can learn to play this great game at a higher level. Golf is a sport that we can enjoy our whole lives! So, whether you are taking up this game for the very first time, or whether you’re an accomplished player who wants to take your game to the next level, Sheri Kirkpatrick Golf is the solution for you!
I have taken lessons from several teaching professionals, including attending a golf school in Florida, and I found Sheri to be the best teacher. Her teaching background has definitely given her an advantage in excellent communication skills. With the TPI skills and assessments, she is able to develop exercises which will target the areas of weakness. She is bright, cheery and always has an encouraging word. Sheri has helped my game tremendously and has reduced my handicap by 6 strokes just this past winter!
