Kevin Anderson

Kevin Anderson   PGA

A PGA Member since 1981 and a member of the PGA’s “Quarter Century Club”, NextLevelGolfUSA™ welcomes Kevin to our teaching staff after a 24 season stint at Woody’s Golf Range. He has spent over 4 decades observing, analyzing and training golfers of all ability levels. His professional experience includes helping to start “The Original Golf School” in West Dover, VT (one of the longest running programs of its kind) and running the Clinton Country Club in Clinton, CT from 1982-1987. He started at Woody’s in 1992 and was the Director of Instruction until the range closed in 2015. In addition to his teaching Kevin has played competitively in the NY Metropolitan, Connecticut, New England and Middle Atlantic Sections of the PGA.

From juniors to seniors, beginners to advanced, as individuals or in groups Kevin has the unique ability to see swing issues and communicate how to fix them. His priorities begin with the fundamentals of the game. “A player with a good grip and setup will be able to maximize their ability over one without those qualities.” When you finish a session you will understand your swing better and have a plan for improvement. His expertise includes all facets of the game. In addition to the full swing, putting, chipping, pitching and sand play are all areas that can be addressed. As a Certified Ping Club Fitter Kevin can also help you with the process of identifying equipment that will enhance your game.

A long time supporter of Langley HS Athletics, Shenandoah University Baseball and Clarion University Softball, Kevin stays involved with the local community as the Boys Varsity Golf Coach at South Lakes HS. Kevin has experience helping with the college recruiting process and is happy to answer questions.
