About this pro

I have over 30 years of experience in the this deceptively simple, yet incredibly complicated game. My main focus is to make you a better player while not confusing you with unendingly complicated thoughts. The goal is to make you appreciate this game of Queens and Kings, love it for what it is, and what it will always be. There is no better feeling in sports than striking a golf ball in the center of the club face, and it brings me great joy to have my students experience it on a much more consistent basis.

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

I talk to my students and get to know what their goals are at the beginning of the lesson. We then talk about what the students strengths and weaknesses are so that we are both on the same page with what we need to accomplish. Next I watch the students swing and check for proper fundamentals. Then we talk about why the ball is behaving in the manner in which it is, and why, and we discuss what drills will be helpful in getting the student to strike the ball more effectively. 

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

I have 30 years experience related to the game of golf, and am certified by the Golf Academy of America in both teaching and club fitting. I have had consistent success in teaching players on a professionally competitive level, as well as beginners, and every level in between.

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

My one hour rate is $50. I do offer packages of five one hour lessons for $200. As well as a ten lesson package for $350. I teach the game of golf in three areas: Long Game, Short Game, and Mental Game. There is no one that is more important than the other two.

How did you get started teaching?

i have been teaching the game of golf for twenty five years. Three years ago I decided to make it my full time profession because it is my passion.

What types of students have you worked with?

i have worked with golfers on every level. From a 7 year old, to an aspiring professional player, and everyone in between.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

i started working witH a fidteen year old boy last February. He has won three JGAA events since then, and we are preparing him to be in the running for a scholarship to a division A school.

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

Teaching the game of golf is not about methodology. It's about taking the ability that you have to play the game, and making the most out of it.

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

Be honest with yourself, and set reasonable short term goals that are achievable. This game has nothing to do with quick fixes, it's all about building a more consistent game through proper practice, and correct fundamentals.
