    John is excellent!! Works extremely well with you to better understand your swing and how to play the game more effectively. Highly recommended!!

  • Ezequiel Lepera

    The location was a bit of an issue at first. I live far away but was told he can only train at one range so I was unable work with John closer to home. In terms of my experience I would give 5 stars! John is extremely patient and is an excellent teacher/coach. He really knows the game and can spot small things to fix your swing. It's a real step by step approach. He doesn't overload you with too much to think about at one time. You work on one part and get it right before progressing to the next step. As a former athlete, coach and teacher, I can truly appreciate his approach.

  • Denise Simone

    To start, I can simply say, John is the man. His knowledge of the game is unbelievable, and he knows how to explain the very technical swing techniques in numerous ways (while still being very patient). My swing and striking has evolved 10 fold in just 5 lessons, and I look forward to continuing lessons to keep on improving. Now with that said - go book a lesson. You won't regret it.

    Coach John was easy to get along with. He made. the lessons at the range enjoyable and I actually saw drastic improvement after only a few sessions. I am really looking forward to going to the course with him on our. 5th session

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

Well First session is Free.

I like to see where my students are at with their game. As they swing for the first. 5 minutes it really allows me to get an idea of what primary goals we will need to focus on so we can start building/ sculpting the right swing. 

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

Level 1 PGA

Teach in elementary and highschool

What types of students have you worked with?

I mostly work with beginners and mid-handicap players. I started teaching back when I was caddying at a private country club and then expanded to work with beginners and casual players.  Recently, I have been focusing on increasing confidence for newer players especially on the tee.

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

Look for a teacher that is affordable and some one that you can relate to. You are going to be investing time and money and you want to make sure you get it right the first time.
