About this pro

With over 30 years of teaching and coaching golf, I have extensive experience helping players of every skill and ability level. Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of golfers in a way that is informative, easy to comprehend, enjoyable, and produces results. The learning and improvement process is accelerated through video analysis, appropriate practice drills, a positive attitude, and patience. I offer full swing and short game instruction as well as ongoing coaching and sports psychology.  

Over the decades, I have met so many wonderful people in this beautiful game. I am most satisfied when I see smiles on player's faces as their game improves. When I give lessons to students, the communication doesn't stop there. I am always available for consultation and enjoy the relationship that develops.

    He took his time and knew how to fix the problem. Now it’s up to me to make it better. Very professional and good instructor. But need a few more lessons.

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

The first thing I like to do when I meet a new student is to spend a few minutes getting to know a little about their backround in golf as well as any other sports or activities that they have experience in. Depending on the individual, I may have them warm up or if they are brand new, I'll begin with the grip, stance, etc. and go from there. I always encourage questions and feel the more they know about the swing and how it relates to shot outcome, the quicker the improvement process will occur.   

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

I graduated from the Professional Golfers Association's (PGA) Golf Professional Training Program and was twice awarded the prestigious Titleist Scholarship Award for highest score. In addition, I have a MA degree from the University of Baltimore, and a BA from the University of Maryland College Park.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard rates vary depending on the length of the lesson. I offer a half hour ($60), an hour ($80), a series of five 60 minute lessons ($350), and a junior rate for golfers under age 17 ($45). Small group instruction is available at ($60) per person per hour. If a student is interested in taking lessons on a regular basis, discounts are offered.  

How did you get started teaching?

Upon graduating from the University of Maryland at College Park, I immediately began my pursuit of becoming a PGA Golf Professional. Within a month, I was an assistant professional at Kenwood Country Club in Bethesda, MD. It was there that I began my teaching career. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students at every level of skill and age. The youngest student I ever had was 4 years old, and the oldest was 93.  In addition, I have experience teaching students who are physically limited and have had success with all of them.   

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

I would recommend finding a qualified instuctor who is patient and that will allow you to relax so the learning experience is productive and satisfying.
