Kelly Hall, PGA
Director of Player Development
After over 20 years in the private club world, Kelly is excited to return to his roots in public golf. Starting as a bag room attendant at 16, he has never worked outside of golf. Kelly attained his Class “A” status with the PGA of America in 1999 and 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 hopes to bring the best of those experiences to Independence along with fresh ideas for where the game is going in the future.
A teacher for more than 20 years, Kelly has worked with juniors as young as 5 through retirees with over 60 years of playing experience. Seeing such a variety of students with different learning styles has taught him how to best interact with each individual. Kelly believes there are many different ways to swing the club and will work with your natural motion and abilities to help you be your best. He enjoys working with both men and women, and has the ability to keep things simple for beginners and to focus on something very specific for a scratch golfer. When asked about the student/teacher relationship, he responded: “Find an instructor who is truly interested in helping you reach your goals, whatever they may be, and not one who is only interested in showing you how much they know about the swing. The art of teaching revolves around knowing what information your student really needs to hear to improve and reach their goals. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the excitement students get when they see the result they have been working towards knowing that I have helped them reach that goal.” Kelly is also one of only three Titleist Performance Institute Certified professionals in the Richmond area who is also a PGA Professional. TPI certifies golf, fitness and medical professionals to evaluate your body’s ability to move during the swing. By being able to identify limitations or deficiencies in your motion, Kelly can adjust his teaching to accommodate those limitations or put you in touch with one of his fitness or medical partners to help you change your body. So whether need a quick fix or a complete overhaul, stop by and see what Kelly can do for you. Rest assure, he will do whatever he can to help make your experience here at Independence the best it can be.
