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

When working with a new student I like to know their goals, what is their current level and what they would like to improve. I would then implement a plan to improve as quickly as possible with the least amount of changes. Which would be accomplished by my expertise and knowledge in a vast amount of facets of the game. I have learned from the best in the business!

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

I am a PGA member who has studied under some of the best instructors the game has to offer. I have learned from Mike Bender, Jim McClean, David Leadbetter, Jimmy Ballard, Mike Bennett and Andy Plumer plus Bradley Hughes. My short game knowledge comes from Dave Stockton and Seve Ballesteros.  

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

I have hour rates and half hour rates along with package rates 

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching my High School team and then my College team.  I played a few years on the mini tours and taught a few players there and perished my passion to learn about the game and to help others 

What types of students have you worked with?

I currently work with all levels of players men, women and juniors. Beginners to the top level players. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I had a student who improved by 22 shots angry 4 lessons and a lady who broke 80 for the first time and then 70 for the first time after a few lessons. 

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

Golf can be challenging and a Coach, especially a good Coach can make the journey a lot easier and more fun!

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