About this pro

Graduate of the Professional Golf Management Program at Ferris State University (1987). A PGA "Class A" member & teaching professional for 35 Years. As a teaching professional, I have an exceptional ability to analyze and assess a students natural talents. I then enhance those talents through instructional techniques as to bring out the very best in each and every student. My strength in teaching is the ability to explain and demonstrate the golf swing in a very simple manner. To further enhance and demonstrate my commitment to instruction, I have attended numerous national teaching seminars with some of the games most noted and influential instructors including Butch Harmon, Rick Smith, David Leadbetter, and Hank Haney. I have also attended the National Teaching and Coaching Summit since 1996.

    Steve is a great instructor. He is able to guide a course of instruction based upon your swing. He makes adjustments and explains things so that your swing remains natural and still your swing, but improves in consistency and control. I'd recommend him to anyone.
