Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Certified club fitter for Mizuno, Titleist and SeeMore putters. Education with colleagues on ways to improve the game and continue to grow it the Right Way is my goal. I Love being a PGA Member of the Carolinas PGA Section.


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

Do your research about the instructor and find out who they are and what they're about. Word of mouth is the best way to find out about someone. I recommend to all my students to find the right fit between coach and student.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Golf doesn't build character, It reveals IT.

Any relationship is not built in a half hour or one hour, etc.

Takes time to build a foundation and relationship between coach and student in any forum. Solid Foundation in Golf takes time and patience, but is Totally worth the effort.
