About this pro

-I conduct lessons via phone and internet.  My students should generally be past the "very beginner" phase (first 6 months or so), and desire to improve their swing or specific aspects of their game.

-Top level instruction and analysis at a reasonable price.  Great value and very convenient.  

-Former PGA golf professional.  

-Formerly assistant golf professional at two Southern CA golf clubs.  

-I have experience, and success, teaching players of all levels.  

-I also have a Masters in Business Administration (MBA), and am qualified to teach at the college level.  I have professional training experience in the business world.  Like famed instructor Sean Foley, I also possess a degree in Philosophy.

-I have experience playing tournament golf at both the amateur and professional level.

-If you really like to know what is going on in your swing, I have the capability to do a very in-depth analysis of your swing, and more importantly how to apply it on the course. 


I love making people better, smarter players, who love the game of golf as much as I do!

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

I like to have a good talk with the student first, to determine their goals.  Then I like to evalute their current game/swing and develop a plan of action.  Then we go over the plan and begin to chip away at it until our goals are achieved.  

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

I am a former PGA Apprentice Class Professional.  I have worked at two golf courses here in the Southern California area.  I also have a Bachelors degree in Philosophy and a Masters in Business Administration.  Lastly, I have experience training people to do their jobs better in the business world.

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

I charge $30 per lesson.  These lessons are primarily directed towards players that are beyond the beginner phase and are looking for overall game improvement, or a specific skill.  These lessons are to be conducted largely electronically.  We do not generally need to meet in person, though this can be arranged in some cases (additional fees may apply).  The quoted price does not include range balls or any other expenses.  I will also provide the student with an e-mail summary of our lesson and links to any articles or videos that are relevant to their game.  

How did you get started teaching?

I was very interested in golf at an early age.  I have studied countless books and manuals, and have always wanted to get my information out to others.  I initially skipped college to become a golf pro at a local golf course.  Here I gave the bulk of my golf lessons, before deciding to go back to school.  Then life happened, and I never really made it back to teaching.  Till now... 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with almost all types of students, from toddlers to seniors, men, women, boys, girls, with all types of physical strengths and limitations.  

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

I would interview the teacher to see if they are going to be a good personality fit for you.  I would also be looking to see if they understand what an average golfer feels and thinks.  Its all well and good that a teacher can play well, but saying "just do it" isn't going to cut it for the average player.  

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

Students should evaluate their goals.  They should think about what they want to achieve and what they can do to get there.  Are they limited in practice time?  Do they have a physical impairment?  Are they willing to put the required effort into getting better?  These are things that the student should have a good grasp on before talking with the teacher about what they are going to need.
