About this pro

I am a PGA member with 20 years of teaching experience plus playing experience that includes a US Open and other PGA TOUR and Web.com tour events.  I also helped develop the Accelerized Video system including the patented Hotlines technology.  Both my experience and technology allow me to provide a clear understanding of what swing improvements would be most beneficial. This alone is difficult to find.  When you add in my ability to help students make these improvements my Instruction really stand out. To further help students retain swing improvements, I have developed Accelerized practice.  This type of practice is unique and makes the full experience unmatched.

For some students it is seeing the light bulb come on.  For others it is successfully making a change that is difficult for them.  It usually takes courage to take on improvements and there is a constant pull to give up and live with the flaw.  That moment when someone knows they have broken through makes my job very rewarding.

FAQs


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

I start with an initial lesson.  First, I am analyzing your current game through video from multiple angles then helping you understand what I am looking for and why it is important. The second half of the initial lesson is beginning the process of making needed improvements. For most golfers, what they are doing and what it feels like are very different. The improvement portion of the lesson revolves around finding the feel that creates the change.  This often initially feels very exagerated and clumsy but smooths out with practice.


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

I am longstanding PGA member.  I have given thousands of lessons to golfers of all ages and abilities.  I also have 7 years of professional playing experience. As a co-founder of Accelerized Golf, I have designed the our certified instructors training program as well as provided training to over 40 instructors.

How did you get started teaching?

I began helping on the design of Accelerized Golf's video system and patented Hotlines technology during my professional playing career.  As I got more deeply involved, it was a natural transition for me into golf instruction.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with beginners to PGA Tour professional and every level in between.  I enjoy seeing a junior player begin to develop a love for the game, a female player hit her longest drive ever, a higher handicapper fix that slice that won't go away as well as helping a Tour player take on and resolve a challenging issue that is holding him or her back.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was doing one on one video reviews with several juniors that were on my PGA Junior League team from last year.  Most of the team members were beginners.  Thinking back about how green they were last year and to see how much they know about what they are doing and how much they have advanced is very rewarding.


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

I believe video is paramount to be able to explain what is going on with your swing and verify that improvements are taking place. Not having access to video from multiple angles is equivalent to assessing a bone fracture with no X-ray.   There is a vast difference is the quality of golf instruction and golf is full of many ideas that aren't good science.  I tell students of mine to expect a valid explanation of why with multiple example of someone doing it as explained. Even as a beginner, good instruction can make a huge difference in your progress.


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

Is the instructor an expert in the use of video and have a setup that is conducive to using video?

Does the instructor explain ideas in a way that make sense to me?

Does the instructor genuinely care about seeing me improve?
