at Lieske is the founder of Michigan Shooting Centers. He is a professional sporting clays shooter and instructor with over 30 years of experience. Pat’s interests in clay target shooting were sparked in the late 1970’s when he shot his first round of skeet in order to obtain his hunter’s safety certificate. It wasn’t soon after that Pat began working at the skeet range and competing, winning local and state skeet tournaments across Michigan. At the age of 16, Pat shot an 800 straight in 12 gauge skeet. After a few years off to attain a business degree from the University of Michigan – Flint, Pat began to shoot competitive sporting clays in 1989.
Since that time, Pat has been on the NSCA All-American team 15 times, NSCA Team USA Open team 8 times and has over 65,000 lifetime targets. In 2014, Pat won the NSCA National Championship, the FITASC U.S. National Championship, and was inducted into the NSCA Hall-of-Fame. As a coach, Pat works with shooters of all ages and abilities – from first-timers to seasoned veterans. Pat’s students include national and state champions as well as numerous All Americans and Team USA members. Many others are simply recreational shooters looking for some extra targets, or a few more birds in their game bag. His calm and composed demeanor immediately puts you at ease and ready to learn.
