Morton Golf recently hires Mack Wallace to take over the Lead Coach of Junior and Disabled Golf position for the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, CA.
“We are extremely happy to have Mack join the Haggin Oaks team,” said Kelli Corlett, Director of Programming for The First Tee of Greater Sacramento. “His passion for working with children, the disabled, love of golf and the ability to incorporate The First Tee Nine Core Values and Life Skills shows in his daily work.”
Mack Wallace is excited to forge a career in golf and to make a positive impact on the lives of those students he encounters. He played college golf at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and earned his bachelor’s degree in Sport Management. He interned as the Head Golf Instructor/Counselor at Lake of the Woods Camp in Decatur, MI where he realized he loved working with children and teaching the game of golf and was eager to return to camp the following summer.
Mack is a compassionate and caring coach, with much patience. Having competed and trained at a high level himself, he understands how more experienced players should practice and train in order keep getting better.
According to Mack, “One of the most fascinating things about golf is how it reflects the cycle of life. No matter what you shoot — the next day you have to go back to the first tee and begin all over again and make yourself into something.”
His teaching style can vary greatly based on a student’s age, ability, health concerns and learning styles. Mack is very interested in how the body and mind work together in the golf swing. He believes by becoming more aware of a student’s current habits, he can develop a game plan to help a student reach their goals. Whether that is obtaining a scholarship to play in college, being the best golfer in your foursome, or breaking 100 for the first time, Mack can help you reach your goals.
