About this pro

I base my coaching on developing fundamentals and mechanics to develop skill. As we all know, there are many ways to swing a club. Some fast, some slow and the in-between depending on your balance, rhythm and tempo. There are certain characteristics that all good players have in common; we work on these key essentials so you end up swinging the club like you want but becoming more skillful to your own style. Experience: -Golf Academy of America Graduate -Completed Methods of Teaching 1&2 through the PGA of America -Callaway Gardens Teaching Professional -Highland Country Club 1st Assistant Golf Professional Playing Accomplishments: -Winner of the 2009 GSGA Pub Links -Qualified for the Yamaha Atlanta Open -T4 2011 Pro-Pro -T3 2016 Summergrove stroke play Player on the Open Golf Atlanta and PGA Georgia section circuit

I enjoy meeting new people, helping them reach their goals and spending time outdoors. This was my passion growing up and now I get to do what I love for a living.

FAQs


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

I first get to know my potential student by asking their golfing experience, goals they would like to achieve, and what the primary concern is with their game.

We then get started with checking 5 fundamentals: grip, posture, alignment, ball position and stance. For in-swing principles, I like to work on mechanics the first half to evaluate certain essentials and make changes when needed. We rehearse, exaggerate and practice partial swings to implement a change then re-check with video to match up feels.


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

-Golf Academy of America graduate with area of emphasis on teaching.

-PGA of America certified teaching professional 

-Anatomy-Biomechanics course at GAA

How did you get started teaching?

I started playing golf at the age of 12 and got into the business when I was 16. My first job at a local club back home I would help with the group clinics and got a chance to learn from some of the best PGA professionals at the time. I really enjoyed the interaction with each person and how we all learn in a unique way whether it be verbal, visual or by feel. They can and will all get the job done individually but when you find a way to incorporate all three and make it easy to understand that’s when you get the most out of a lesson.


What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds! From the complete beginner to the advanced player. 


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

I would definitely look at experience and certifications. Teaching is a skill that requires practice to develop, and once it is developed, a good teacher can tailor lessons to the individual student’s needs and adjust where necessary. 


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

I would think through your goals as a player, as well as a timeline to accomplish them. Are you trying to beat your buddies while playing for fun? Are you looking to up your game competitively? Or are you looking to impress your boss at your next office golf event? Each of these scenarios would have different goal sets for each lesson, and knowing exactly what you want will help your teacher make the most of your lesson time.
