I recently became a Teaching Pro at Encino/Balboa Golf Courses in Encino.  I have video analysis and Flightscope launch monitoring system capability.

I enjoy growing the game of golf by bringing new students to the game and improving experienced golfers games.

    The drills and he explains concepts

  • TJ Chasteen

    Really solid. Used data and was super helpful.

  • Robert Dombroski

    John was great to work with. Highly recommend.

  • Barbara Johnson

    Easy to understand. The only problem I had was being in the direct hot sun. That is the only reason I haven't signed up for more lessons.

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

My typical process of working with a new student is to access his or her physical level and skill level and give them the best instruction that will work best for their individual swing.  I'm not here to make them Tiger Wood's but to help them enjoy playing the game and if that means playing it at an advanced level, so be it.  

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

 I recently relocated to Southern California from Chicago where I was a PGA Professional for 20 years.  I look forward to continuing my career here in So Cal. In my career I have had the pleasure of teaching all skill levels of players, boys and girls, men and women. My goal is to continue to grow the game by bringing as many new golfers to the game as possible, and making it fun for all of them!

How did you get started teaching?

As I became passionate about the game 30 years ago and decided to become a PGA Professional, my enjoyment in the game obviously beside playing it, was to watch my students enjoy it as well.
