Jack Jung (pronounced Young) has been a golf enthusiast since he first learned to swing a golf club at the age of 7. He was taught by the first “Teaching Pro of the Year” Manuel de la Torre of the Milwaukee Country Club (MCC) whom at the age of 90 is still teaching. Currently Manuel is ranked in the top 15 teaching pro‘s according to Golf Digest‘s “Top 100” list.  Jack, in his youth, caddied at MCC for 10 years, and for 8 of those years he was Manuel’s private caddie. As Manuel’s caddie Jack had the privilege to observe lessons for 12 hours every day learning about the golf swing and the game of golf. During Jack’s tenure as Manuel’s caddie he had the opportunity to caddie in five Greater Milwaukee Opens. Today Jack and Manuel still have a healthy relationship.
