Mike Boyko – T.I.M.
Chief Tempo Officer

Mike has a lifelong passion for rhythm, music and sports. A professional drummer for the last 20 years, Mike has performed around the world with A-list groups of the music industry. Some highlights include drumming for heavy metal band Ludichrist/Scatterbrain and UK pop-rock band FAT, which toured with Smashmouth, Third Eye Blind and Sugar Ray. Most recently Mike played with hip-hop rock band 2 Skinnee J’s, which opened for Outkast, Ludacris, Jurassic 5, Incubus and 311. Also an avid and competitive athlete in golf, ice hockey and a myriad of other sports, Mike couldn’t help but translate his percussion background and knowledge of rhythm to athletic performance. With the consultation of golf professionals across the country, Mike applied his idea of utilizing beats and music to practice proper swing tempo. He composed and recorded the proprietary music tracks that comprise the Tempo in Motion system and then opened up Tempo in Motion as a platform for signed and unsigned musicians to share their music with a broader audience.

Integrity, pride (Personal Responsibility In Delivering Excellence), perseverance, creativity, these are some of the traits that every instructor wants to see when working with any student. The same qualities are also what you see in a great company. Callaway golf has been and continues to be the standard when it comes to equipment. However, one thing that is often overlooked is their passion and love for growing the game. Whether it’s through junior golfers, the average golfer, amateurs or professional tour players, for over 35 years Callaway has been there and that’s why I’m proud to have them on our team at the Carlos Brown Golf Academy. Callaway golf has played a major role in the growth of the CBGA and continues to be instrumental in providing our players with state of the art equipment and accessories but most of all they provide us with their constant, generous support . One of Callaway’s slogan is “putting the joy of golf in your hands.” The CBGA will continue to partner with great companies that bring more “Joy” to our games and lives.
