Sierra Sage Teaching Staff
Mike Mazzaferri, PGA
Mike has been a lifelong instructor and has taught golf at every ability level from the beginner to the tour professional. He defines his instruction philosophy as “extreme fundamentalism” and encourages golfers to keep it simple when embarking on game improvement. Although he teaches all parts of the game, he particularly likes to teach short game and believes the difference between a good player and a great player is their skill with the wedges and putter. Mike was awarded Golf Professional of the Year by the Northern California PGA in 2004, he was the Reno Gazette Journal inaugural “Golf Person of the Year” in 2005. He is a past President of the Northern California PGA, Founder/Chairman of Golf the High Sierra and a former chairman and founder of The First Tee of Northern Nevada.
