Originally from Geneva, New York, Kellie's grandfather was a PGA Professional and her father played briefly on the PGA Tour. After graduating from high school, she attended Furman University in Greenville, S.C., and played four years of Division I Women's golf. During her senior year at Furman, the team finished second in the nation at the NCAA finals.
After college, Kellie played professionally for five years on several tours around the world including the Futures Tour, The European Tour, Asian Tour, South African Tour and Australian Tour. She has over 15 years of teaching experience and presently runs the Kellie Stenzel Golf Academy at The Town of Palm Beach Golf Course in Palm Beach, Florida.
Kellie is engaged to Gerard Stigliano, and the two have a son together.
"Kellie teaches all parts of the game so I can work on what I need to improve. Best of all, because she fixes your Achilles heel, makes it seem so easy to improve, you leave lovin’ the game again."
“I tracked Kellie down after I read her books because her instruction was so practical! Now that I know more, I realize that she can fix one thing that fixes the multiple things that I am doing wrong. Kellie doesn’t overwhelm me with a lot of swing thoughts."
“Wonderful way to spend time with your professional colleagues in a fun atmosphere – Kellie made us all laugh, work and BINGO –improve our golf game at the same time.”
