OKKY

MASGONO

Okky Masgono was born and raised in Semarang, Indonesia. After graduating high school, he attended Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, CA. He was active in sporting events, winning a single and double sectional badminton championship, and led his high school basketball team to first place in Hexos Cup sectionals two years in a row.

He was introduced to the game of golf in his early twenties. Fortunately for him, he learned how to play the right way – starting with some guidance from a golf professional. This was essential in learning the fundamentals of a solid swing and getting to know the game better.

After 8 years of enjoying the game of golf, he decided to become a PGA Professional. He got elected to class A PGA member in February 2021. He started out at the Anaheim Hills Golf Course as an Assistant Golf Pro, and Director of Instructions at Lion Golf Academy from 2018 to 2021 as a golf instructor and coach. Now, full-time teaching and introducing golf to people is his passion and it is safe to say that he’s doing what he loves and loving what he does.

People say: “Practice makes perfect.” But in golf, he believes that: “Practicing the right way makes perfect.” In 2 years, he was able to develop a better golf game faster than most weekend golfers who have not had professional lessons. The correct repetition of solid golf fundamentals and knowledge is key for a consistent game. Golf is complicated and a hard game to learn. It is his job to break it down to you in the simplest way possible in a way that anyone at any age can understand. At the same time, not forgetting to make the learning process fun, and to meet the goal of every student the best he can. After all, golf is a game, and everyone playing it should have fun.
