About this pro

As a PGA Class A Golf Professional, My approach to teaching students varies from student to student; no player is the same. I believe the talent is in the player and I help educate students on why they do what they swing as they do.

Teaching the fundamentals and taking the time to listen to the student is very important to their success. I am a firm believer in practice with a purpose and use drills to keep the game exciting.

Experience:


Nike Junior Camp  Lead Instructor 

Instructor for Ladies, Men, Juniors, Private, Semi Private and, Group Lessons.

Certified club fitter for major club manufacturers.

I enjoy seeing the improvement of the students skill levels and to help them achieve their goal.
