About this pro

Passionate for teaching and growing the game of golf.  11 years experience teaching and coaching golf all over the country.  I teach all ages and abilities, I do not believe in one swing for all golfers instead I tailor my teaching philosophy to the student and his or her unique swing.  I believe in making my students better at the game of golf and lowering their scores, not teaching  pretty form.  I believe strongly in the short game leading to sucess and spend ample amount of time teaching that way.

    Dan has been able to break down key elements of the various swings that have helped me progress further faster than in previous golf classes. He's patient and consistent. I'm enjoying the game more than ever!

    Very patient and thorough, easy to follow instructions. I learned a lot in just a few lessons. He lets you learn at your own pace. No pressure. Pleasure to work with him.


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

Generally the first lesson or two involve the most questions about your previous golf experience, goals, body limitations ect.  

Hitting multiple clubs throught the bag to allow me to find the master flaw in the swing and determine corrective action and drills to improve.

2014 Gulf Coast Chapter Player Development award
