Raspberry Golf Academy
I'm a PGA professional with over 20 years experience in the golf industry. Currently working as the Director of Instruction for the Raspberry Golf Academy with 3 locations in VA.
Certifications include K-Vest 3D biomechanical software, video swing analysis, short game and putting instruction, TPI Level 3 certified coach, as well as on course instruction. Smart2move Dual Force plates LVL 1 certification.
I'm on the Board of Directors for Loudoun Junior Golf Association and Chairman of the Golf Committee for that organization.
I work with clients of all abilities and ages.
My greatest joy is watching any student reach their goals - no matter what level you are.
My philosophy is Keep it simple and work within the framework of each students body's physical capability and to set goals that match expectations based on those capabilities and amount of time that can be devoted to learning.
There are Multiple types of lessons - a few are below.
1. the lesson where you learn a new concept, technique or mechanic to change a pattern or tendency that is hurting your golf game and ways to change it
2. On course - understanding process, how to adapt to changing environments on the course.
3. specialty lessons - putting, short game, speed, etc
My job is to identify the intended goal. Then understand the time, and resources that can be devoted to the goal and then to help you get a plan to get there.
My success is a direct result of the relationships we build with our students and the improvement our students gain through our instructional staff. Our students range from beginners to professional golfers and from juniors to adults. We offer a game improvement solution for whatever your goals in golf may be.
My only goal is to make our students better at golf. I use the best tools in the business to evaluate your game and help you reach your goals. I use proven techniques to teach you what you are CAPABLE of and how to play your best golf.
A few student success include
- Multiple VA state High School champions - 3 player over 5 years
