The Cantigny Golf Academy unveils a winter teaching series presented by Greg Baresel, staff PGA professional. The five-workshop series is open to the public and designed for all skill levels.
The Wednesday evening series is priced by the session at $10 for adults, and $5 for junior golfers younger than 18. Classes are one hour long, and begin at 6 p.m.
Dates and topics
• Jan. 16: True Fundamentals of Golf (think outside the box)
• Jan. 30: Fix my slice

Described as one of the area’s top young golf coaches, Baresel says his primary goal with all students is to help simplify the game. For 2013, he invested in Trackman Combine, a new technology enabling golfers to test their skills and better understand their strengths and weaknesses. Trackman sessions under Baresel’s guidance will be available at the Cantigny Golf Academy starting later this month.
