Tim Katanski returns to Ann Arbor Golf and Outing for the 2022 season as the Assistant Golf Professional. Since leaving this position in 2016, Tim has served as a Head Golf Professional at public golf courses in the area.
He began his playing career as a senior in high school, earning recognition for the “Most Improved Player.” His passion for the game grew from that one season. Fast forward 30+ years and his passion is stronger than ever.
Tim turned professional in 2010 and completed the requirements to be inducted as a member of the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) in 2018. While Tim loves to compete at a high level, his greatest reward comes from sharing knowledge and providing instruction to students of the game. He receives his greatest satisfaction from seeing others improve their ability to play.
“As an instructor my goal is to find the simplest and most efficient way to strike a golf ball,” said Tim. “All golf swings are unique just like each golfer is unique. My goal is to put each of my students in the proper position to feel their swing.”
