Golf Pro – Chip Sullivan
2007 PGA Professional National Champion
Chip Sullivan is the new PGA Head Golf Professional at Woodburn Estates & Golf. Chip has worked at several fine clubs throughout his 27 years as a PGA Professional. During this time, Chip has been the guest speaker at various schools and organizations including the Middle Atlantic PGA and the Virginia State Golf Association. In addition, Chip has written several golf articles in various publications and once had an instructional radio spot called, “Chip’s Tips”.
Chip has been married for 25 years to Kari and they have 3 children – Kalley 23, Camryn 20, and Colby 17. Kalley is finishing up her senior year in multimedia broadcast journalism at Virginia Tech. Camryn works for a mental health advocacy group called Self Care is for Everyone and Colby is a junior at McNary High School and is a top state golfer looking to play Division 1 golf when he graduates.
Chip’s teaching philosophy can be summed up into 3 words – impact, impact! There are many ways to square up the clubhead at impact and it is up to the instructor to find the easiest and most efficient way for the student to improve. It is Chip’s belief that to be a well-rounded golf professional you should not only possess exceptional business skills and ability and desire to serve others but also be an accomplished player in your own right. Chip has been a member of the PGA Tour, Nationwide Tour, and the South African Tour in past years. He has racked up over 80 wins in 40 states and 12 countries on mini-tours and PGA club professional events. Additionally, he has played in 9 major Championships with his best finish a tie for 31st coming in the 2004 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Kohler, WI. To this day it is still the lowest finish by a PGA Club Professional in over 50 years. His most memorable win came in 2007 when he won the PGA Professional National Championship in Sunriver, Oregon. Through his accomplishments and golf knowledge, Chip hopes to motivate each person so they can take full advantage of their own golfing capabilities and find pleasure in golf, too.
Chip is very excited to be at Woodburn Estates and Golf as their Golf Professional and looks forward to getting to know each and every member.
