About this pro

GOLF 312 is located conveniently in Chicago's northside and offers a high tech, yet laid back golfing environment. GOLF 312's goal is to get people playing not just better golf, but more golf! If practicing or taking lessons doesn't inspire more golf, then what's that point? Unfortunately, there isn't a one size fits all solution in golf, so we work with each student on a solution that works best for their interest level, schedule and budget. For more information, check out our website at golf312chicago.com.

I enjoy helping people "learn how to learn" golf. The critical thinking and problem solving that most people employ on a regular basis at work or other activities where they are successful, for whatever reason, don't often carry over to golf. Golf, both the swinging action and game itself, provides plenty of mental traps for people and I see the majority of people making the same mistakes. When given the right information and outlook, people become very creative in how they overcome different problems in their game. I thoroughly enjoy helping people acquire that skill when it comes to the game of golf. It makes the game more fun and repeatable improvement easier to attain. I am also, like many Chicagoans, addicted to playing golf and GOLF 312 provides the ability to learn and practice year round in what can sometimes be a very short golf season.

FAQs


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

The first step is getting to know the student and understanding what they are looking to get out of the game of golf.  Whether it's a first time golfer trying to hit the ball up in the air, or an avid golfer trying to build a repeatable ball flight, it's important to set realistic goals that align with the students level of passion, scheduling limitations and budget. Additionally, each student will be set up with the ability to view notes and video recordings from their lessons using our web-lesson platform. 


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

I am a Class A, PGA Teaching Professional and have been teaching for 13 years. I have taught under several acclaimed instructors in both New York and Illinois, while also enjoying continued participation in local and national professional golf tournaments.

How did you get started teaching?

I played baseball very competitively growing up and stopped playing when I arrived at college. I needed to fill the competitive void so I picked up golf. My school offered a basic golf 101 elective and that gave me access to the university golf facility. From there the addiction to the game was born! I began working at a golf facility and continued to practice more and more. After about a year, I was able to pass my PAT (playing ability test) and begin my PGA journey. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have given lessons golfers of all kinds from beginners right up the skill ladder to professional golfers. Regardless of skill level, I enjoy helping people problem solve and get to where they want to go within the game of golf!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Being at Augusta National for the Drive, Chip and Putt finals and watching a little girl from our academy hole out and win the chipping portion of the competition. 

   


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

Sign up for a single session before making the decision to buy a package. Meeting the right instructor is more than just cost, experience and available technology. You need to be comfortable with the facility as well as the instructor in order for the experience to inspire you to learn and play more golf.


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

Level of passion, scheduling limitations and budget. Realistic goals can be formed from having honest answers to those three questions.
