About this pro

I am a PGA Professional Certified in Teaching and Coaching. I am also TPI certified. Which enables me to find out any movement issues you may have and how they are affecting your golf swing. This allows me to develop an efficient way for each individual to play better golf each day and limit injury risk.  

I get the chance to help people to enjoy the game that I love. It's always worth the hard work to see a student light up when they hit their best shot ever, or hit their first draw, or shoot their personal best round.

FAQs


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

I work with a Launch Monitor give feedback on ball flight and K-Vest Motion Measurement device, which gives feedback on your body's movements. Once set up with this I go through the TPI screening process testing for movement limitations that are correlated to swing errors. After I have made this assesment I watch their swing to see what compensations they have made for such movement problems. I then determine what is priority to improve my students golf swing.


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

PGA Certified Professional in Teaching and Coaching. 
TPI Level 1 Certified (Currently working through Golf Level 2 and Junior Level 2)


How did you get started teaching?

I started by being a good player as a young kid and having people ask me for tips. This was then fueled by people having success with the changes I made for students and them resulting in many people shooting their personal bests. From that point on I was hooked. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with virtually every level of player from aspiring Tour players down to the Beginner level player who has never swung a club. I have taught approximately 3,000 lessons over the last 6 years. 


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

Find a teacher who teaches with knowledge and understanding of how you move, not someone who teaches to their preferences to make a "perfect golf swing"


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

Think about how you are going to practice the changes you are going to attempt. Many assisted practice platforms with either biofeedback or video practice are available, and that can be the difference between you getting better and not.
