Helping students reach what they believe is their potential and then hopefully exceeding that potential!

I’ve always loved the game of golf, but since moving into the great city of Chicago I haven’t been able to do a whole lot of playing.  I felt that there were a lot of Chicagoans in similar shoes that don’t have a “go to” golf facility to take lessons, practice, and improve their game.  Golf 312 breaks that barrier and is a community based golf facility in Ravenswood open to anyone who just wants to play golf!

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 forth goals, so that a game plan can be put into place on how to make it happen!  The golf swing consists of a set of layers, so each layer builds off the other to produce the most efficient swing.  It is during that 1st session, where I like to look at all the layers of your golf swing to see what is causing you to not be able to reach your true potential.  With the use of video feedback I can slow down the swing and give you an understanding of cause and effect and what you have got to do to become a more efficient golfer!  Once getting a better understanding of what’s holding you back, we'll come up with a lesson program, where I will guide you along the way to become your best golfing self!


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

I went to college at Florida Gulf Coast University, where I was apart of the Professional Golf Management Program.  Upon completion of the PGM Program I became PGA Certified and got a bachelors degree in Resort and Hospitality with a Concentration in Golf.  Since graduating college I have been teaching for over 5 years and in that time have given over 5,000 lessons.

How did you get started teaching?

I grew up playing the great game of golf at a young age, and continue to love playing today.  So when I found out I could get a college degree and become a PGA Professional it was a no brainer.  To be able to help someone get better at golf and achieve their goals keeps me motivated to learn more and become a better teacher.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students who have never swung a club before to a single digit handicapper trying to get closer to scratch.  A very broad spectrum, but that's what makes my job fun!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I had a student who had been really struggling with low point in the golf swing.  After giving him a set of drills on how to practice and eliminate his cast and flip at the bottom of his once timing orientated swing he was thrown off a bit.  Despite some shaky results at best during the beginning he continued to work hard at perfecting this new layer.  Incorporating the given drills at the range he stuck to it and eventually started to see the results.  At the last lesson it was awesome to see his low point moving more in front of ball and him hitting low punch shots with solid compression compared to his old high weaker ball flight.  It's great to see through hard work and proper practice that anyone can become a better golfer! 

   


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

I would make sure your teacher is PGA Certified and has the ablity to use video, so you can understand what's really going on in your golf swing.


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

I think just having an undertanding of what brings you to the game of golf.  What make you most happy when playing.  This helps the teacher formulate a gameplan whether that be to get rid of slice, to hit the ball further, or to break 100.  A good teacher will guide you to making golf more enjoyable and fun!
