About this pro

Up and coming!!! "If"you feel as great as I do!!!! The past several years seemd like a whirlwind of golf for me. Starting the PGA JrLeague Golf Program for the city of Westlake several years ago,over 80 children participated and volunteering for the first tee of Cleveland another 250 youngsters. I was able to run one of the best junior programs in Northersn Ohio I'm very grateful especially coming off a life threatening condition that is in remission,thank you, at the present time. Teaching after a (5) year recovery acted as a catalyst in my career. Starting at the bottom of the pile teaching a ton of children was perfect for rehab. In the (6) week program former PGA Touring Professional,friend and Seniors Champions player worked with the children giving a few tips and Top TPT,Tim Neauman also gave parents and the children Golf tips and streaching exercises to help the golf swing and keep everything loose.

The Happy Ending!!!& 

The best practice facility in the Greater Cleveland area situated near Lake Erie.

we have all the high tech bells and whistles to keep you busy for (3) months analyzing and working on your golf mechanics swing,short game,you name it,physical training it can be done.
The facility has 40 bays.20 covered and heated,grass tee line for 60 golfers. Two practice greens totaling 50ksqft. Putting,Chipping and pitch shots. To go along with the great heaters in the bays  that keep you toasty and warm during the cooler months.  I'm  presently  Director of the PGAJr League Golf Meadowood and Instruction apx.70 children participated in this program last summer. Former developer of Stonebrook Golf Academy Middleburg Hts.,Oh. Proven player Asia,South Africa,Australia and USA. Golf Professional of 45 years and a member of the PGA Golf Professional Class A. The experience and knowledge about the game of golf was acquired from working with Bob Toski,golf Digest School and Mentor by golf professionals Jack Grout,Jack Nicklaus coach and friend, Gardner Dickinson who's mentor was Ben Hogan,Phil Ritson Gary Player's instructor. I have been very fortunate to have been in the same company as these gentlemen and would like to pass their information on to my students. Not including some of the many golfing friends,thank you. Of course there were more golf professionals that I learned from in my life the best one and most Memorial goes like this ,a tip from a firey little Italian golfer,Gene Sarazen,told me as I was watching him hit 25 or so balls into a neet little 3ft.circle 30ft. away," This shot is more important than any 300 yrd. drive.

My philosophy about teaching is to take what the student's swing and develope/fine tune it using drills and by example.Using their swing and by applying the fundamentals to increase their knowledge about playing golf. 

Everyone has a different body size and very few of us are as conditioned like a touring golf professional. Therefore you will not see two exact swings on the tour. If we look at the fundamentals and understand how they interrelate with what you already know we can develope/fine tune your swing to what ever level of golfer that you would like to be.How hard do you want to practice the correct motions will determine what level of golfer you can be.

•lessons are guaranteed!

 •I can help your game!

  •This is a great time of the year to focus on your swing,short game and putting!!!

No effort No Gain

•The greatest part of giving lessons is when the light bulb clicks on and the student understands and is able to demonstrate a repeating swing.
•That smile that everyone gets when solid contact is made and the ball goes where he or she want's it to go. •Helping someone learn what they never new before is a enriching experience for both instructor and student!
