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 through our sessions and what the primary concern may be and why they think it is occuring. 

We then get started with checking fundamentals being grip, posture, alignment. For in-swing principles I like to work on mechanics for the first half to check for certain essentials that are necessary and what preferences they may have to create the the flight, contact and curve that the individual wants. Then we shut it off and make it a reaction or feel to organize strong/weak points.


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. If you were choosing a doctor for the first time you are more likely to visit one that has been in practice for 10 years with great reviews that is a graduate of Harvard vs someone who is just starting. Not saying the one who just started isn’t good but with any occupation there is trial and error which comes with time and experience. With proper training, anything you practice you get good at.
