About this pro

As a former PGA Tour Player, I have a great understanding of the golf swing. If someone has been playing golf for many years I don't always try and change their swing, I just work with them on some adjustments that will help improve their swing.

For beginners; I like to focus on the basics, starting with the Grip, then to the Set-up, Alignment and then the Swing. I also like to help them understand that the golf swing takes time and patience but I work with them to make it simple and fun along the way.

I enjoy creating relationships with my students and understanding their personalities, so I can make sure they are having fun while learning the game of golf, which also makes it fun for me.
