About this pro

Chris's main objective is to help students improve and reach their goals. Chris's approach is simple and effective.  He works with the students skills and limitations to help build a swing for them.  Each individual is unique and has acquired different skill sets depending on their athletic backgrounds, flexibility, body types and life experiences; therefore, each student can not fit into the same mold.

He was was recetly names one of "Americas Best Young Teachers" by Golf Digest. 

Lessons Include:
    Slow Motion Video Analysis
    Personalized Swing Video With Online Locker
    Improvement plan

I am passionate about helping students play better and enjoy the game.

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

It depends what type of program they will be particpating in. If it is just a regular lesson then I would:

1) Take them through a questionaire/evaluation to make sure I understand exactly what their needs/wants are.

2) Take them through the 3 step learning process

What are you doing now?

  • Refers what what you are doing "right now"!  Not what you thought you were doing or what your buddy said you were doing last week. ( This is why I always record the students swing prior to making any changes. The camera doesn't lie!)

What should you be doing instead?

  •  Reflects the discovery and analysis of your weaknesses/flaws versus the correct motions/ideas. (Now that you know what you need to do, can you do it?)

How do you make the change?

  • This is where I (the Instructor) come in and show you what to do through various drills and skill developing exercises. ( I will also create an customized improvement plan that reflects your goals and personal schedule.)

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

How did you get started teaching?

I started playing golf at 12 yrs old and like every kid wanted to become a professional. I decided to go to college and pursue a degree in Busniess with a concentration in PGA Golf Management. Upon graduation from college, I took an internship with the Jim McLean Golf Schools and the rest is history!

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all levels of golfers from beginners to professionals.  I don't focus on just one aspect, I teach the total game!

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

I would advise the customer to do his homework and research the different instructors. Find out which services they offer, the cost, and the facilities that the instructor has available to them.   This way they can find the best fit for them.

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

1) What are my goals?
2) How much time do I have to practice and play?
3) How much do I want to spend?
4) Am I open and ready to learn?
5) What do I expect from a lesson?
6) What resources/ facilities are available to me?
