About this pro

I started playing golf around 10 years old and only stopped to join the Army.  Once my service was done though, I was back out on the course.  I have played in an official capacity with Gordon Lee High School Golf Team and Truett McOnnell College Golf team, where I racked up a few big wins and greatly improved my game.

I love working with people and teaching about this game that I love.  I specialize in golfers that are just starting out or kids who need to develop a good, fundamental swing to build on.  I look forward to joking around with you while we work out your swing kinks.

I absolutely love talking to people and making friends. I also love goofing around and not taking myself too seriously. I transfer that into my lessons which helps take the pressure off my students who get too frustrated with their development. My favorite aspect of this watching a student start to have fun and get better at the same time.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I'll start by gaging where you are with your current swing and develop drills to perform to develop natural movements with the club.  I make this as simple as possible, so as to not confuse the student with uneccessary jargon and lingo that would only limit the student's improvement.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been taking golf lessons since I was a kid, so I have picked up quite a few tricks and techniques that work very well.  I have also been coached at both the High School and College levels, where I played golf everday with an official swing and golf coach.  Beyond that, I practice some aspect of my game every single day.  This has awarded me the ability to par most courses I play.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $80 an hour for range lessons and $100 per nine holes of strategy and instruction on the golf course of your choosing, within a resonable distance.  I'll also come to your home with my own hitting pad and net.  Home visits are $100 an hour to cover the cost of fuel to your home.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching my young children, the youngest being 6 at the time.  I had a lot of success with them because I made it fun and simple for them to understand.  After that, I moved to my family members that have asked for help.  All of which have made drastic improvements to their game.  

Following that projection of teching, I started teaching a person I met on the driving range while practicing.  After working together for only 2 weeks, we have improved his aimpoint and ability to consistently hit targets.


What types of students have you worked with?

Kids (based on their maturity level), new golfers, poorly coordinated individuals.  If you've been playing all your life and have a handicap of 5?  I'm not for you.  If you've been playing for a few years and have no clue how to improve, then I'm your guy.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Watching my son improve has been my favorite for sure. With only 2 days of work, he went from not being able to make contact, to consistently being able to get the ball airborne. He loves hitting the "Big Dog" too, which is what he calls his driver. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone that you work well with and understand their instruction.  I don't want to change your swing or what feels natural to you.  I want to make those small proper movements feel natural.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How much can you afford?  No sense in starting instruction you can't keep up.  You're not going to get as much benefit from one lesson as you would from 5.

Do you understand their teaching techniques?

Do you get along? 

Is the instruction too complicated to understand or too simple to get any benefit?

Can they work around your schedule?

Where can lessons take place?

What equipement do I need? (though any trainer worth their salt will have all you need, aside from a set of clubs)
