Professional golf lessons
Dr. Bryon Applequist joins the Pine Hills Country Club staff to help grow our instruction and junior clinic presence. Bryon is an Assistant Professor of Biomechanics in the Department of Exercise Science at The University of Scranton. He completed his B.S. and M.S degrees in Kinesiology with concentration in Biomechanics at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; his master’s thesis examined the transmission and attenuation of forces in the body during landings from different heights. He completed his PhD in Biomechanics from the University of Nebraska at Omaha where his research evaluated the development of lower extremity gait biomechanics and motor control in children. Bryon has an expert understanding of the biomechanics of the golf swing which gives him a unique perspective in golf instruction.
Bryon’s hope is to put Pine Hills Country Club on the map as a destination for junior golfers to have fun, learn and compete, as well as grow the game of golf in the Scranton/Wilkes Barre area by providing expert instruction to all those interested in golf. Bryon works in our pro shop and can be reached at 702-301-8261 or by email at DrAppleGolf@gmail.com. Please welcome Bryon to our team!
