About Coach Schlagenhauf
Byron brings a vast array of experience to Power Endurance Training Center’s Power Golf program. Byron has been playing and teaching golf for over 25 years. He is a former All-American, Team Captain, and MVP of the UCLA Golf Team. After a successful amateur career, he went on to play professionally for 10 years on the Nationwide, Asian, South American and Golden State Tours. His 20 plus years of experience as a student to a number of PGA Tour playing professionals and top-ranked instructors, has given him a strong understanding of fundamentals and swing mechanics.
With a data-driven approach using launch monitor technology and video analysis, Byron has been incorporating his extensive knowledge of golf to instruct his students, of all skill levels and playing abilities, for over 10 years. Having been a student of golf for many years himself, he enjoys the challenge of communicating his instruction with his students in a way that helps them internalize how to make the right changes to improve their game.
Byron’s patient demeanor and attention to detail make him a great instructor for both beginning and advanced golfers alike. At the core of his teaching, he focuses on fundamentals that help students create a foundation for a repeatable golf swing.
“IT’S A GOOD BASELINE TO SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH WHAT THE BALL IS DOING, THEN WE MAKE ADJUSTMENTS. IT HELPS DEVELOP STRONG FUNDAMENTALS TO SEND THE BALL WHERE YOU WANT TO GO AS WELL AS A LARGER FRAMEWORK ON HOW TO GET BACK ON TRACK WHEN YOUR SWING GETS OFF.”
