About this pro

I am a 25-year member of the PGA of America. I started my Professional Golf career as a Caddy Master, and worked my way through the ranks of Assistant Professional, Head Professional, and Director of Instruction, all the while maintaining a very rewarding playing career. My career wins include the 1988 Kentucky PGA Assistant Professional Championship, 1991 Maryland State Open, and the 2011 Southwest PGA Championship. Other accomplishments include qualifying for 6 Professional National Championships, 4 National Assistant Professional Championships, and 4 Senior Professional National Championships, and being part of 3 SWPGA Robinson Cup Teams and 10 Goldwater Cup Teams. I also have qualified for the 2009 and 2016 United States Senior Open, and was Senior Player of the Year in the Southwest PGA for 2008 and 2010.

I began to concentrate on teaching in 1998 when I became a Director of Instruction for the American Golf Learning Centers (evolved into Nike Golf Learning Centers). I have served as Director of Instruction at Kokopelli Golf Resort, Foothills Golf Club, and Stonecreek Golf Club. I am currently an instructor for Jacobs’ Golf dividing my time among Red Mountain Ranch, Hillcrest, Legend Trail and Orange Tree.

    The improved ability to learn from ball flight was my most important breakthrough.

    John’s stuff is simple and easy to understand because it’s right,” Harmon says. “It works for every player who ever lived or will live.


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

Educate myself about their swing and their needs. I have to find a starting point. Sometimes what a student wants may have to come after some fundamental training.

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

I am a certified club fitter, certified instructor with John Jacobs Golf Schools, 30 years of teaching experience. 

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

Basic pricing starts at $100 / hour, $65/half hour. Discounts are available with the purchase of a series of four lessons. Also multiple hour sessions are available.

How did you get started teaching?

I've always had a passion for the golf swing. So I decided to learn as much as I could. Then I had the opportunity to pass along what I had learned and I fell in love with teaching. To this day, I'm still learning. New techniques and technology keeps things interesting. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Beginners to advanced (some professionals). 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Golf related would be participating in the 2016 US Senior Open. 

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

Find someone you can understand. Communication is key to good instruction. 

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

Today fitness is an issue. Are you physically capable of making the swing you want to make. Not everyone can. Swing like Rory or Lydia.
