About this pro

I have worked with pros to young beginners.  I was the chairman  and head teacher for Wichita junior golf @ MacDonald GC from 1983 to 1986.  

My daughter earned a full ride golf scholarship to U of Missouri St Louis due to my teaching. I teach all aspects of the game,  including the mental aspects.  My son can hit a ball over 300 yards in the air.  I started them both at 3.  

I was instructed and influencrd by the following teaching professionals.  Leland Duke Gibson,  Harold Reed,  Grier Jones,  Gary Clark,  Clay Devers, Rodney Nuckllols,  and Stan Thirsk.   

I enjoy helping young people learn a game that will shape their lives.  Watching young students improve and grow mentally is very satisfying.

    Tom is a very good teacher and easily relatable. He teaches a great system and has a lot of patience! I have golfed for most of my life but finally found a few things that I needed to clean up in my game. I'd highly recommend him!

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

I usually start with the short game by chipping, pitching, putting, and bunker play.  Than progress to longer wedge play, mid irons and driving.  I utilize a lot of David Lee's Gravity Golf instruction because I feel it is easier for the average person to hit it further with less stress on the body.  I can teach Ben Hogan techniques as well.  

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

I have played the sport for 50 years under the tutelage of some of the best teachers in the midwest including Stan Thirsk,  Grier Jones,  and Clay Devers.  

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

I start young beginners as well as more skilled players off with a free lesson to see if there are good vibes and to ascertain if I am the right person to coach them. After we decide if it's a good match I charge 40 per half hour or 60 for full hour.   Playing lessons are 50 plus greens fees.  I usually don't watch the time so you usually get a lot for your money.
