William Unger III, Head Golf Professional
Bill's Teaching Philosophy & Bio
This being his first full season at Urbana Country Club, Bill brings 19 years of experience in the private club industry. Beginning at Westbrook Country Club in Mansfield OH and learning both the food and golf side of the business working in each department, he found his passion and interest in the game. While attending The Ohio State University, Bill moved to Hilliard and was employed at Heritage Golf Club for 14 seasons, again working in both departments until 2012 when he became the 1st Assistant Golf Professional. Coming to Urbana in 2016, he has made the Central Ohio area home for 15 years now and enjoys all it has to offer.
Experience of instruction includes years of managing various clubs’ clinics held throughout his career as well as countless private one on one lessons. Video analysis and equipment assessment are just a few of the areas that his expertise cover, he has also traveled the region as a Demo Technician for TaylorMade Golf. A certified Club Fitter through TaylorMade and Titleist he has worked with most other club manufactures to assist those who are seeking to upgrade their equipment. Special interest areas include growing the game of golf whenever the moment arises.
By developing the skill level of junior’s, ladies, and beginners, the enjoyment of the sport will find its’ way into the future generations. Bill believes firmly that practice of the full swing is a benefit to manage scoring. Although regular practice in areas of the short game or within 100 yards is the most effective to better play, scoring, and overall enjoyment. The key to improvement is to work on the feel of an individual’s swing and not just the mechanics. This is due to each player having their own abilities, strengths, and weakness’s, which makes knowing whether to use Kinesthetic, Visual, or Audio learning critical to his approach and what works for players. “There are a million ways for the club to find its way to impact of the golf ball.”
