“Six years ago, I started working with Ken on my swing on a regular basis. Ken has a keen eye and can find the fine things in your golf swing that make the big difference! Ken has helped to take my game to a level I only DREAMED of! I appreciate all Ken has done for me and I continue to work with him on a regular basis”

“Seth offers a refreshing perspective on teaching.  He is patient and deliberate in his approach and makes you feel comfortable at the range with his “no pressure” teaching style.  Starting with a TPI assessment, Seth looks at your range of motion and flexibility, which allows him to tailor his instruction to your physical capabilities and limitations.  He then works with YOUR swing and has you make small adjustments aimed at producing quality ball striking.  No magic bullets, just a strong focus on club face awareness which is critical to improvement and consistency.  I highly recommend Seth for your next golf lesson!

“I began working with Sam a few years ago and he has greatly enhanced my knowledge of the golf swing and what I’m trying to accomplish.  I’ve found breaking down and focusing on certain parts of my swing with Sam has allowed me to better transition swings from the range to the golf course.  Being able to capture swings on film combined with data from Trackman along with Sam’s feedback have been critical to improvement and working out of a slump.  Sam has helped me build confidence and stay on a road of progression with this difficult game of golf.”

Derrick Livingston

“My six years of learning from Ken have been so successful that I’m constantly having to re-write my goals as they get accomplished under his guidance: achieving 4 AJGA Tour titles, qualifying for 7 USGA Championships, over 100 junior tournament wins, being named First Team High School All-American, #1 ranking worldwide in my class of 2020, and now in 2021 playing on Baylor’s golf team currently ranked #1 in the NCAA Division 1. As I continue on this path, there is no one I trust more to guide me and my game for years to come than Ken.”

“We feel fortunate to have taken lessons from Seth.  His engaging and orderly teaching style made it easy and enjoyable for us to learn.  We’ve taken many golf lessons over our combined years and without a doubt his were the best.  It has been a pleasure to know him.”

“3 years ago, Sam Rice and I met for the first time and I was very nervous because I rarely had golf lessons with a golf professional. But the moment I walked into Ken Schall’s place, I was greeted by Sam with a big smile. Since then, he has perfected my swing through lots of patience, practice drills and lots of laughs throughout our lessons together. I am very glad I worked with Sam throughout my golf career and I continue to happily work with him all the time!”

“I feel lucky to call Ken my swing coach. His knowledge and enthusiasm combined with his communication style have helped me achieve many of my goals quicker than I could have dreamed. Thanks to Ken’s guidance, I’m now fully exempt on the AJGA Tour. Every time I see Ken, I can plan on improving my golf game. My sister and I consider Ken to be one of the greatest instructors in America.”

Our daughter wanted to become a more consistent golfer for her high school team.  We had heard about Ken Schall Golf Performance so we set up lessons with Seth. Not only did Seth analyze her swing and give her good tips to work on with her swing but also a lot of good tips for the mental part of her game.  Seth made each lesson fun and informative. We will be setting up more lessons this off-season.

“I started seeing Sam about March of 2021. He has turned my game into something I had never imagined. I can’t thank him enough for what he has shaped me into. He puts his heart and soul into whoever he is teaching, and that plays a huge role on why he so is successful.”

“Thanks to Ken, I can say that I am a State Champion and a Division 1 athlete. Before I went to see him, these were just dreams and goals of mine. He helped me turn my goals into reality and to realize the potential I had when I couldn’t see it for myself.”

“Thank you so much, Seth, for your help and guidance with the club fitting.  I came in not knowing what to expect and immediately his energy made the experience relaxing and enjoyable.  Seth’s knowledge and instruction style helped find the perfect fit for my game in no time.  I am shocked at the differences the new clubs make.  It was a pleasure and I’ll be back for a spring tune up!”

“I came to Sam with the goal of fixing my hopeless slice, and by the end of our first lesson he had me hitting the occasional draw. With the technology they have at their disposal and instant feedback drills to improve your game, I began to understand my golf swing more than I knew I could. Sam has been incredibly helpful in improving every aspect of my game and I can’t wait to keep working with him!”

Treye Spencer

“Looking back on the countless hours I have spent working with Ken, it is mind-blowing to see how far I have come. I started at probably a 10 handicap and I can now say that I have nearly worked my way down to scratch golfer. Most importantly, Ken has taught me to believe in myself.”

Ben Krapfl
Former Creighton University Player

“I recently started taking lessons with Seth after wanting to improve my game. Seth worked with the strengths of my swing and worked on my weaknesses. My swing and overall game have improved much more than I imagined or hoped for. Seth added 20+ yards in all of my clubs and took my handicap from a 25 to a 10, with more improvements on the way. Seth made lessons enjoyable and is able to rephrase his lessons when something isn’t quite sticking with me.  Seth is a great person who truly loves golf and loves seeing his students succeed.”

Mitch McGowan

“Over the past 18 months working with Sam Rice, our son has gone from a novice 12 year old to a high school golfer who is passionate about the sport and dedicated to practicing and perfecting his game. He  has found ways to enjoy the process because of Sam’s coaching, encouragement, and care.”

“When doubt entered my thoughts, Ken is the one who encouraged me that I had the ability and to “stick with it” and not abandon my dreams of playing golf at the collegiate level. He has taught me a lot about golf, but at the same time, not overwhelming me or over-coaching me. This has helped me develop my own swing and style-of-play.”

Andrew O’Brien

“Since working with Ken, I have shot new low scores, played in 2 international golf tournaments and exceeded my own expectations. I cannot express the gratefulness I feel to have Ken Schall as an instructor. I would not be the golfer I am today without his guidance and wisdom about this difficult game.”

“Ken gave me my first formal lesson as a junior golfer 12 years ago and has continued to support my growth in the game. Ken has always been able to keep things light and fun while teaching me the crucial fundamentals of my swing and game. I owe much of my success to Ken’s instruction and his overall passion for the game of golf. His experience playing at the highest levels has helped me with the technical and the mental aspects of playing competitively.

I look forward to spending time at Ken’s Performance Studio with access to all the latest and greatest technology & equipment.”

Paige Seiser
Former Illinois State University player

“I got to work with Ken for the month of my winter break before heading back to school. Even in that short amount of time, we got an incredible amount of work done. It was an awesome experience and his studio is second-to-none in the area. Lots of swing instructors I’ve come across have great knowledge of the golf swing. Very few, however, have the teaching ability that Ken does to make any swing change simple and easy to understand. If you’re looking to get better, Ken’s is the place for you.”

“Ken Schall’s knowledge of the golf swing is exceptional and his professionalism with his students is of the highest standard. His creativity in proving the latest technologies with many new ideas carries over to his teaching skills.

As a member of the Iowa Golf Hall of Fame, Ken’s playing record supplements his understanding of the nuances and finer points of the game. Ken Schall Golf Performance Studio has all the ingredients necessary to be the resource for golfers from beginners to professionals.”
