About this pro

I have been playing golf for a total of 18 years. I have played with women's clubs and won the 2007 Club Championship at the D'Andrea Golf Club in Reno, NV.I have coached many students since I acquired my teaching certification in 2008 from the National Registry of Professional Golf Instructors. I have taken students with no prior experience to playing the game on courses. I also volunteered with the First Tee of Northern Nevada for two years and coached children from 6 to 18. I worked with them on their full swing, pitch shots, chip shots and putting. I was also able to accompany them out on the golf course so they could learn the rules and etiquette.I have also had extensive coaching in the mental aspect of the game. My coach is a professional golfer who has played the game over 50 years and professionally over 35 years.Coach Tip: This is a quote from the book Spirit of the Dancing Warrior by Jerry Lynch and Chungliang Al Huang: "Mastery. It is interesting to discover that there is no path to mastery: mastery is the path, the journey of never-ending multidimensional growth and development, a zigzag way of excellence. You don't attain mastery; you live it as a lifestyle one small step at a time and you can measure success by the quality of those steps."

FAQs


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

I find out what goals the student has for the game and make sure that is a reasonable goal.  All new students begin lessons with stretching and strengthening exercises to prevent injury and to prepare the student for the golf swing. Then I work on the fundamentals of grip, address, body mechanics.  I start with the full swing and then work on the short game (chipping, pitching and putting) The goal is to eventually learn the skills needed to play a round of golf. When a student has enough skill to play a short par three course, I also go through basic rules and etiquette. 


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

I have been certified by the National Registry of Professional Golf Instructors to teach golf.  I have also worked extensively with a professional golfer who has helped me in the mental aspects of the game. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching golf because I had a very great need to know the entire mechanics of the golf swing.  Learning to teach golf showed me each part of the swing in a manner that was very clear and then I was able to transfer that information to my students. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students that have absolutely no knowledge of the game of golf to students who are fairly accomplished in the game and needed a tune-up or advice in a certain part of their game. 


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

If you are a beginner student, make sure that the instructor has lots of experience with the beginning fundamentals.  


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

How much time can I devote to the game of golf?

What are my goals with the game of golf?
