I am in my fifth year coaching college golf after a four-year playing career in college. I was an assistant college coach for two years at my alma mater in Cleveland, OH, before taking a head coaching job in West Virginia in 2012. In 2014, I decided to move to Georgia to take the head coaching job at Oxford College of Emory University. I have worked with golfers from age 5-75 so I am open to teach anyone. I have coached men and women at the collegiate-level so I have no preference of male or female students. For students under the age of 12, please contact me directly for pricing.

I first ask the student about what they want to get out of the lessons and also what they view as their weaknesses. Also, is the student looking to be a recreational player or do they plan to play competitively? The answer to that question dictates my priorities and pertinent information that I want to share with the student.
I was a three-year starter for an NCAA Division II college and then went on to be a college coach for the last seven years.
No. I think it is unfair to charge a child the same as an adult. I also give discounts for purchasing lesson packs
I started teaching at youth camps and clinics when I was in high school. Now it is a huge part of my life and my profession.
I have worked with many kids from 5-18 years of age. College aged students with extensive experience is the majority of my clientele.
I would say moving to Florida. My wife and child are so happy to be here around family and friends so in turn it has made me increasingly happy.
Make sure that the teacher is willing to listen to your priorities and can explain things both on a basic level and advanced level. A teacher that can do both is a teacher you can grow with.
How do I assess my current talents?
What kind of player do I want to be?
How much time outside of lessons am I willing to put into my game?
