I have known Kelly for many years and we all here at Hodson Golf are excited to have him on-board as a staff fitter. Kelly has just completed a state of the art indoor fitting/teaching studio at Independence. Being able to utilize our unique and extensive fitting system, along with his state of the art launch monitor (both indoors and outside on the range), will allow Kelly to continue our tradition of a professional and thorough custom fitting. Due to Kelly’s busy schedule with teaching, he will have limited availability for fitting so please contact us to schedule a private session with Kelly at Independence Golf Club.
About Kelly Hall
A Class “A” Professional for over 20 years, Kelly has spent time in Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia and Florida during his career. He has worked at public, resort and private facilities, giving him a wealth of experience and knowledge due to the differences of each type of property and location. He brings the best of those experiences to Independence along with fresh ideas for where the game is going in the future.
A Pennsylvania native, Kelly began his golf life playing around the yard to homemade “greens” with only a 9 iron. His first job was at the local public course in the bag room cleaning clubs and carts. Were it not for John Kulhamer, his first pro and boss, he would not be a pro today. Fast forward over 30 years and you can now see the culmination of a love of the game, a desire to help others and a wealth of experience in one glance of his eyes. 25 plus years of teaching have made those eyes keen and taught him a lot about how people learn. But today’s golf industry is much different than those early days, so to be relevant, you have to evolve with your clients. Kelly has stayed current with today’s industry and offers video analysis, non-traditional learning environments and on course evaluations.
He is also a Titleist Performance Institute Certified Instructor. The TPI Certification program is an evidence based, educational pathway designed to teach industry professionals how to increase player performance through a deep understanding of how the body functions during the golf swing. This concept is called the Body-Swing Connection™.
