Manuel found success playing golf, but he found his calling
as a teaching professional. As the leading proponent of
the Ernest Jones’ Swing Principles, Manuel is living proof
that a concept based upon science and timeless simplicity
can translate to great satisfaction and great scoring.

Manuel was head professional at Milwaukee Country Club
from 1951 to 1996. He was PGA Teacher of the year in 1986
and is a four-time Wisconsin professional of the year. He is
still active in teaching golf to amateurs, professionals, and
teaching pros today.

His students have reached the apex of success in
professional golf, including entrance to the LPGA Hall

of Fame (Carol Mann) and winning back-to-back British Open Women's
Championships (Sherri Steinhauer). Manuel is also the current swing coach for
former Masters Champion Tommy Aaron. Moreover Manuel has mentored
numerous teaching professionals who are making the great game of golf more
enjoyable to their students.

Manuel’s book, Understanding the Golf Swing, was first published in 2001, while his
DVD of the same name was released in 2003.
