About this pro

I will work with your swing while changing it piece by piece slowly, so it's not confusing to the student getting the lesson. I will put in place a pre shot routine, to ensure proper ball placement and address is all in the correct position. I'm really good at analyzing what's wrong in anyone's golf swing. If there is room for improvement I will definitely find it. I don't give advice just to give it, if I'm not willing to do it myself. I will guarantee you will hit the ball more consistently and farther then before. 

  I am a Head Golf Coach for The First Tee of Contra Costa County and also The Head Coach for Clayton Valley Charter High School's Girl's and Boy's Golf Team

This is my 2nd year as being Clayton Valley Charter High School's Girl's Golf Coach and the 1st year as taking on the Head Coach role for the Boys. 

The high light of my career in coaching is, last year on my girls High School Team I had a individual who has never hit a golf ball ever miss a hole in one by 18 inches! She missed her Birdie putt but nailed her 1st ever Par! She responds, " Coach what is a Par? " Also putting smiles on my kids I coach on Saturdays for The First Tee of Contra Costa County.

    Coach John has been a blessing to our family during this COVID period. He is a wonderful coach who goes above and beyond for my son and daughter. Great teaching techniques and always keeps the kids engaged! He’s so attentive during each lesson and tailors each lesson to each ones potential. I have a left handed and right handed player and he has been very accommodating of that.

Asking the student which is their favorite club in their bag? Then asking them to give me a example of their swing plain.

Nation Training For The First Tee Certified Head Coach

In 2015 I completed in The World Long Drive in Texas I made it to the 5th round of competition, before getting eliminated. 

If you want to hit the ball long? I'm that guy that can get you the results your looking for.

How did you get started teaching?

The year of 2015 I wanted to scratch a Bucket List Item off my list. One of things on that list was, competing in a Long Drive Tournament so I did. I was at my local golf course where I asked a working there if they knew anyone that belonged to The First Tee? He said Yes! Monica Sanders the Director. So I asked if he would do me a favor in getting a Golf Shirt with The First Tee of Contra Costa County on it so I could proudly represent them in the event? So they gave me a few shirts to wear in The World Long Drive Tournament. So I told the individual, when I get back I would love to help coach and making a difference in our youth in our community and that's how it all stated. I've been a assistant coach for about a year and a half until I went to National Training to become a Head Coach for The First Tee of Contra Costa County 

I am also the Head Coach for Clayton Valley Charter High School's Girl's & Boy's Golf Team.

What types of students have you worked with?

From beginner to intermediate to never ever hitting a golf ball.
