About this pro

I have been in the golf business, PGA Professional for 20+ years.  Straightforward instruction that helps my students swing the club and play the game to the best of “their” abilities.  I teach my students the way that they best learn.  I don’t make them learn the way I teach! I don’t teach “tour” swings!  I don’t teach any particular “method”.

I really enjoy watching a student put the time and effort into improving and seeing them aquiring the skills to attain their goals.

    Kelly is the quintessential golf instructor. As a brand new player he made me feel at ease and understood. He is great at explaining techniques and provides lots of visual aids along the way helping you grasp the various concepts. Kelly is very attentive and has just the right temperament you’d hope for in a coach. Just after one lesson he had me swinging better then I ever have! If your on the fence, get off and give home a shot! You’ll be glad you did!

  • Colin Pratt

    You can really tell Kelly is dedicated to helping you understand your swing and what you need to improve on. He won't just give you tips and pointers you can find in a magazine, he helps you take control of your game. Lessons are a casual atmosphere, but incredibly informative and effective if you put the time in to practice what you've learned.

  • Brad Allen

    I have taken many golf lessons over the last 30 years. Kelly was the first Teaching Pro to suggest that I see a Physical Therapist to gain as much mobility in my left hip as possible. He said he could work with my limitations if necessary. He would even take a personal interest by sending me an email about something he thought of to try in between lessons. His positive post lesson videos were very helpful reinforcing what we need to work on. Kelly is also very adept at using technology to help with his teaching and fitting of clubs.

  • Darin Thomason

    Kelly teaches to the strength of the player. He knows how to communicate in a way that everyone can understand. Best teacher in the valley.

FAQs

Focus on great fundementals. Then work towards making “their” swing as functional, efficient and effective as possible.

LPGA Certified in “Teaching Her” 2017


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

contact for rates.  


How did you get started teaching?

I have played competitively since the age of 10.  I still compete today.  Golf is my 2nd career and teaching is my passion.


What types of students have you worked with?

Women, Men and teens.


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

 Find a teacher/coach that wants to work WITH you.  Ask questions, lots of questions. Don’t be worried about hurting feelings or insulting their intelligence or ego.  If they bruise that easy, you don’t want to work with them anyways.


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

Be honest!  If you tell me that you hit everything great but you just can’t hit a driver, you’re the only one that’s being fooled.  Whatever it is you do with your driver, I promise you that you do it with your 7 iron as well.

Wanting to add 50 yards to your irons, quite likely isn’t going to happen.  15-20 yards, well, maybe but it’s going to take time and effort on your part.

Anyone that guarantees you success.....stay away.  There are NO guarantees!
