About this pro

I have played tournament golf since I was 8 years old. My accomplished play in Junior Golf enabled me to achieve a golf scholarship a North Carolina State. I am also currently playing as a pro in mini tour events. These experiences help me to work with the beginning golfer to improve their golf fundamentals and create a more enjoyable experience on the course. I can also offer the experienced golfer with finer details in their swing to play at a higher level.

Relationships are the key to any successful experience. I enjoy seeing the joy a golfer gets about the improvement that takes place in their game. I enjoy giving students some homework to improve their focus in practice situations. Tracking my student’s successes and watching them improve is what I enjoy the most.

    He had a nice demeanor

    I was having a problem shanking my short irons. He had a simple but effective solution. I’ll go back for additional help when required.

  • Stephanie Carstens

    Great teacher and great with children.

  • Don Hubert

    Jake was able to do exactly what he said he would and helped me shave those last few strokes off my handicap. In just a couple of lessons he drastically improved my consistency . He did not force any additional or unneeded lessons and had me working on just a coupes simple swing thoughts. Highly recommended for any low-handicapper looking to drop those last couple strokes.

FAQs


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

I would first seek input from my students to find out their level of knowledge for the game. Beginning players would work thru a process of full swing, chipping, and then putting. Fundamentals of stance, grip, and swing mechanics would be the focus on the full swing. Chipping techniques and putting concepts and drills could be implemented in subsequent lessons. I will use technology such as the V1 Swing Analyzer App so students can see their swing flaws and advances with each lesson. Students will leave each lesson with a review of main ideas and concepts we worked on along with homework ideas to enhance the lesson.

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

My experience as a Division 1 offer at NC State, along with experiences in my pro career, including a two-year stint on the Latin American Tour proves I have the knowledge needed to teach the golf swing.
