About this pro

Golf instruction at Griffith Park Golf course and Angeles National Golf Course.  My focus is to make a players swing more efficient though better mechanics which will lead to better ball striking and lower scores.I've been trained by world class teaching professionals so I can offer the best experience to my students in the Los Angeles area. I also truly enjoy working on the the short game by teaching effective chipping, pitching, bunker play and putting techniques. 

I use Trackman, Boditrak, and K-vest to evaluate a students swing and correct tendencies that don't fit their particular pattern. Students will have the ability to self correct on the course and learn how to practice effectively. The student will also receive a 10 minuet video analysis covering the topics of the lesson. I use a wide variety of drills and feedback to help students learn fast.

I enjoy helping students improve their golf game. I've played in professional mini tour events and still enjoy competing in tournaments when I have the time. My lowest score is a 64 on a par 72 course. I hope to break that barrier in the near future. I find joy in helping golfers fix swing faults that have plagued them their whole lives. I also enjoy helping juniors learn the game for the first time, or prepare them make the high school or college golf team.

    David is a fantastic teacher. Incredibly knowledgable but also patient. He has simple but effective drills to help your learn the fundamentals. My game got 5 times better in a few short lessons. Highly recommended.

    I have been training with Dave for over a month and I have had already seen improvement in my game! He is extremely knowledgeable and methodical in his approach and style of method. He does a great job of explaining things and makes learning the game of golf fun while leading to positive results. If you hit a rough patch with your game, developed a case of the "shanks"or just want to become a much better player, go see Dave! It's totally worth it!


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

First lesson is an analysis of a players swing. I find the root cause of their problems and attack that area first. I also find out what areas need the most work and address any goals the student may have.

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

I have been trained by some of the best golf instructors in the world. I attend seminars and golf schools several times a year. It's an exciting time for golf instruction because technology is starting to reveal what the best players are actually doing, and I can relate that to my clients. I think its important for instructors to stay educated and open minded. One can never stop learning in this game. I have also played golf professionally and I know what it takes to perform at the highest levels of the game. 

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

My pricing changes depending on the facility and the various lesson packages that are available.

How did you get started teaching?

I started playing golf when I was 6 years old. My first job at 15 was at a golf course. I played professional golf and mini tour events before I started teaching full time.  I decided I was better off teaching the game as I had a passion for it. I wanted to know why I wasn't swinging the club and striking the ball the way I had hoped to. My search has lead me to become a better player than I was before.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with all ages from seniors to juniors. Professionals to hackers.
