Ron Romanik is principal of Romanik Communications (www.romanik.com), operating out of Morgantown, PA, which specializes in crafting effective B2B and B2C product, brand, and packaging messages, founded with a mantra of "Authentic Stories. Resonant Tones. Sustainable Brands."

 

Ron is passionate about brands, sustainability, writing, and – of course – golf. He is also former Editor-in-Chief of Pennsylvania Golfer and Package Design Magazine, a national trade magazine.

 

A lifelong resident of southeastern PA (in Berks, Bucks, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties), Ron has been lucky enough to kick it around a vast majority of the public courses in the region, and a good number of the private tracks as well. Ron has also given back to the game by being a Board Member of the Berks County Golf Association and the Chester County Council BSA, which runs the successful Dick Vermeil Celebrity Golf Invitational.

 

Currently an 8 handicap, Ron knows his scant few glory days are far behind him, but he still enjoys entering in local amateur golf tournaments. The Imperfect Lies Blog will celebrate the active and vibrant Philadelphia golf community, in turns informative, thought-provoking, and irreverent.

Mark Anderson, Teaching Professional at Philadelphia Cricket Club, is Head Women’s Golf Coach at the University of Pennsylvania and past president of the Philadelphia Section PGA (2009-11).

 

He now joins MyPhillyGolf as Teaching Professional and blogger.  He’ll write and post instructional videos.

 

Prior to joining the Cricket Club in 2008, Anderson was Director of Golf and Amenities at Talamore Country Club in Ambler and, from 1998 to 2006, Head Professional at Heidelberg Country Club in Bernville, Pa.  He played college golf at Florida Southern College and, later, at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, from which he graduated in 1990 with a degree in business administration.

 

A Certified PGA Professional in golf instruction and golf operations, Anderson has held a number of positions with the Philadelphia Section of the Professional Golfers Association (PGA), culminating with his term two-year as president.  He is currently the Honorary President of the Philadelphia Section.

Anderson has also served as Vice President of the Berks County Golf Association and spent several years as captain of the professional team at the Berks County Pro-Am Challenge. In 2007, Anderson won the Bill Strausbaugh Award for his work with the Philadelphia PGA Mentoring program, which helps apprentice professionals and assists them in becoming members of the PGA.  In January 2009, Anderson was honored with the Philadelphia Section PGA's Horton Smith Award, which is given in recognition of continuing contributions to professional education.

Under Anderson, the Penn Quakers women golfers won the Ivy League Championship by 22 strokes in 2010, earning their first-ever trip to the NCAA Regionals.  In 2011-12, despite missing two regulars in the lineup, the Quakers took second place in the Ivy League Championship.  In four years as Penn's head coach, Anderson has a record of 266-160-3.

I am very excited to join the team at MyPhillyGolf.com as the Teaching Professional.  I am looking forward to contributing golf tips, videos and my thoughts on golf instruction, professional golf and golf in Philadelphia.  It is an exciting time for golf in the Philadelphia area and no one covers it better than MyPhillyGolf.com.  

Here Anderson’s personal teaching website.
