Dean Reinmuth:

As an instructor with more than 40 years of experience, Dean Reinmuth is most recognized for developing his "Swing Shaping System." This instruction approach, which he uses with the PGA Tour Players and amateur golfers alike, focuses on making slight adjustments to the golfer's own natural swing, as opposed to completely changing it. This "reshaping" approach allows golfers to hit their best shots more often while improving the quality of those occasional "miss-hits."

Two of his first students were top-ranked junior players in the San Diego area. In addition, he taught the PGA Section Player of the Year from the San Diego area as well as a professional golfer who qualified for the U.S. Open twice. His success with these players led him to work with a young junior player named Phil Mickleson. Credited with developing Philís game since age 13, Dean Reinmuth worked with him through Philís high school and college ranks. Today Dean is recognized as one of the Top 50 Golf Instructors in the U.S. by Golf Magazine and continues to work with several prominent players on the PGA, LPGA, European, as well as the Senior and Canadian Tours.
