    Pete Busch, PGA-Certified Pro Member
    Pete’s philosophy is to use the golf club along with your body in a simplistic and efficient manner. This will help golfers of all skill levels achieve the most out of their game. He works with the student to develop the best swing for that person. He is proficient in all areas of the short game, including specializing in the “art of putting” and is considered one of the finest putters in the area. He uses the V1 video teaching system for all his lessons along with a video analysis sent to each student. He continually sits on the NJPGA Junior Committee and has always been very influential in training for junior golfers. He coaches for the 1st Tee of Raritan Valley, the Els for Autism, plus assists Union County Special needs in teaching children the game.
