Mitch Kochmann promises that no matter what's wrong with his golf swing, his coach, Vern Strandemo, can fix it in 30 seconds.

That's just one of the advantages of having a coach that's been around golf for a long time.


"He just makes it so simple," Kochmann said. "He'll take a look at what you're doing and it'll be fixed."

Players often joke about having coaches that have seen it all. Strandemo has pretty much seen it all when it comes to Mahnomen's golf scene.
